When is Full-Mouth Reconstruction Needed?

Your dentition is composed of many different parts – teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks, jaw, etc., and each of these parts work together to create a fully functioning mouth that can chew, swallow, and speak flawlessly. When one of those parts (i.e. teeth, gums, jaw) becomes damaged, it can affect the functionality of your smile. Therefore, keeping your mouth at a healthy level is extremely important to your daily functions. Nevertheless, how do you know if you may require a simple one-time procedure or a full-mouth reconstruction or restoration?

Tooth decay, gum disease, broken teeth, and other oral health issues can damage your mouth’s fundamental abilities. When decay becomes increasingly present in your mouth, it can cause some serious damage and tooth loss. When this happens, a full-mouth restoration can restore your essential functions and bring your mouth, your smile, and your confidence to a healthy level.

What is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?

When one treatment alone cannot fix your dental issues, a full-mouth reconstruction or restoration can fix multiple dental problems and provide you with the full functionality of your mouth. Essentially, full-mouth restoration can address jaw-bone issues, replace any missing teeth, treat dental diseases, fix worn down teeth, and fix any broken dental appliances such as broken fillings or crowns.

Full-mouth reconstruction is a great way to hit the “reset” button on your dentition, as it involves the restoration and remaking of the important parts of your mouth – often affecting all or most of the teeth in your mouth. Depending on your exact and personal dental needs, procedures will be tailored to make your mouth feel natural and beautiful.
