How Full Mouth Reconstruction Works
Posted on 10/5/2020 by Dr. Chad Rebhun
As you may have guessed those people who have numerous dental issues within their mouth and require all their teeth replaced. Combining technique, technology and esthetics, this part of restorative dentistry longs to improve the level of health and the appearance of the patient's mouth and teeth.
What is Involved in a Full Mouth Reconstruction
Patients who are missing multiple teeth and suffering from extreme tooth decay or have eroded or cracked teeth or have problems with grinding their teeth can all benefit from a full mouth reconstruction. Those dental appliances utilized during a full mouth reconstruction include what you might expect. Obviously, the mouth reconstruction will take multiple appointments in order to complete. Placement of crowns, dental implants and onlays are all used as well as bridges, dentures and even veneers. If the underlying gum tissue or jawbone is damaged or weakened, a person might need gum grafts or bone grafts before continuing to other procedures.
What Happens when it's Completed?
Following the full mouth reconstruction, patients can expect to have their pain completely gone and a greater chewing comfort. If necessary, patients may also require orthodontic appliances to help shape their teeth into the best possible alignment.
The patient will have a completely new smile matching their facial structure. Not only will their appearance be affected, but so will the functionality of the tooth. They will be able to chew without pain and not have discomfort while brushing and flossing. It will help with confidence and lower anxiety.
One distinct disadvantage is the potential extreme cost. With multiple appointments and multiple appliances, the cost can rise quickly. Also, not everyone can get a full mouth reconstruction. Patients are required to have excellent oral health.
