Full Mouth Reconstruction
When a patient is missing most or all of their teeth, full mouth reconstruction (also called full mouth restoration) can be used to replace these teeth, restoring the patient’s oral health and smile. During the course of several visits, restorations are placed in both the upper and lower jaw. Each treatment plan is tailored to the unique needs of the patient to achieve the health and appearance desired. Treatment options include the use of porcelain veneers, implants or bridges, inlays or onlays, and full-coverage crowns.
What is full mouth restoration for?
Full mouth restoration may be used any of the following:
Several missing teeth
Broken or chipped teeth
Teeth damaged by wear, grinding, or erosion
Misalignment of the bite (malocclusion)
How do I know if I qualify for full mouth restoration?
Qualifying patients must have a certain level of oral health in order for full mouth restoration to be successful. This includes:
Condition of Teeth and Gums: Treatment largely depends on the cause of missing teeth, other oral health problems, and the condition of the gum tissue. Failing teeth must first be either removed or restored before treatment begins. Common problems include tooth wear, root canal problems, and misshapen teeth which may be treated by the dentist in office. Gum disease also prevents treatment and may be addressed using scaling and root planing or other means of eliminating infection. Once your mouth is sufficiently healthy, you will have a strong foundation, increasing the success and longevity of treatment.
TMJ, Malocclusion, etc: Problems with the temporomandibular joints, misalignment of the bite, and other jaw problems can prevent successful treatment if not addressed.
Prior to treatment, we will access the health and condition of your mouth to determine the best course of action for you. Considerations include the size, shape, color, and alignment of your natural teeth to help produce a comfortable and natural-looking smile.
