Full Mouth Restoration

Circumstances occasionally require a complete dental reconstruction and rehabilitation to rebuild the upper and lower teeth. Severe jaw problems, trauma and accident, disease, heavy decay, and drug use can all be contributing factors for a complete restoration. A full mouth project will often involve other dental specialists such as orthodontists, oral surgeons, periodontists, and cosmetic experts for bite alignment, extractions, gum advice, and overall finished balance.

Generally there, there are four areas that need intensive evaluation before the procedure can be planned and executed. The first is an entire examination and evaluation of all the teeth (or remaining teeth) in the mouth. Of prime importance, is whether or not the teeth can be saved through root canals, crowns or other techniques available to the dental group. All wear, cracks, or future complications will be noted. The team will compile a comprehensive list of what measures are best to restore the teeth to optimum level.

Next, the gums will be surveyed to see that they are healthy enough to support a high level of dental restorative activity. They will be looked at carefully for disease, total amount of tissue, and bone problems. If regularities appear, the periodontist may perform soft tissue or bone grafts to help provide a strong support for the new teeth.

Third, how the jaw is functioning and how the bite is aligned will be looked at. Avoiding wear and eliminating any pain or jaw closing on eating will be part of the preliminary program.

Last, how the teeth look, how they go together, and how you should show your smile to the world is configured. A full mouth restoration is a long road, but once completed, changes lives in a very substantive way. There are fewer gifts that you can give to yourself that will positively impact your life every single day like a full mouth restoration.
