Full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment combining cosmetic, neuromuscular, and general dentistry services to address significant issues with your upper and lower teeth. Some of the treatments used in this procedure are similar to a smile makeover, but a smile makeover is a cosmetic treatment, whereas full mouth reconstruction is focused on occlusion and the overall function and strength of your smile.
When Full Mouth Reconstruction Is Necessary
Full mouth reconstruction becomes necessary when serious issues are impacting many aspects of your smile. This may be due to factors such as:
- Severe malocclusion
- Advanced TMJ
- Trauma or injury to the teeth or jaw
- Excessive teeth grinding (bruxism)
- Uneven tooth wear
- Significant tooth erosion
Each patient has unique needs. During your comprehensive examination by one of our dentists, it can be determined what treatments will best restore strength, comfort, and beauty to your smile.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments
Your full mouth reconstruction will be tailored to address your specific problems. This may include services such as:
TMJ treatment – If you suffer from TMJ, a full mouth reconstruction might actually be part of your TMJ treatment. When your bite is off, it can cause TMJ. It can help restore your bite to its comfortable relaxed position. Not only will your smile look brand-new, but any TMJ symptoms you experienced before like a jaw pain will soon subside.
Gum treatment – Gum disease can cause receding gums which can make your smile look unsightly and cause increased sensitivity to hot and cold. Gum grafting can help restore your gums back to a healthy place and prevent you from experiencing increased sensitivity.
Dental implants – If you’re missing one or several teeth, dental implants can provide you with a secure tooth replacement option. Talk to Dr. Clancy about including dental implants as part of your full-mouth reconstruction.
Dental crowns – Severely damaged teeth can benefit from a dental crown. The dental crown protects your natural tooth from further damage while also restoring the strength and aesthetics of your tooth.
Porcelain dental inlays/onlays – When you have a large filling in your mouth, this makes your tooth weaker. Replace your dental filling with an inlay or onlay for better protection and tooth strength. It also looks great too!
Porcelain veneers – Although it’s mostly thought of as a cosmetic procedure, porcelain veneers can also provide great restorative benefits. Hide minor flaws like cracks or chips in your teeth with dental veneers.
Laser dentistry – Say goodbye to dentistry that uses loud drills that make you wince. With laser dentistry, we’re able to work more precisely, more efficiently, and provide you with additional comfort, faster healing, and less bleeding to give you a better full mouth reconstruction experience.
Your unique dental needs will dictate the services necessary for full mouth reconstruction. All of your options will be discussed in full during your appointment with Dr. Clancy.
