People with severe dental problems are candidates for a full mouth reconstruction. As the name implies, full mouth reconstruction refers to the rebuilding of all the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Full mouth reconstructions combine aesthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function and beauty of the smile. Crowns, composite additions, dental bridges, dental veneers and/or dental implants may be used in a full mouth reconstruction. In some patients orthodontics may also be employed to help properly position the jaw and align the teeth.
Treatment can range from the wearing of acrylic stabilization splints, to bite adjustments, through to the comprehensive restoration of the functioning surfaces of the teeth using fillings and crowns.
Our objective is to correct the deficiencies and re-establish a balanced biomechanical relationship.
Some people unfortunately, have accumulated considerable amounts of dental damage. Where there has been extensive wear or a collapsed bite from having missing or shifted teeth, a much more comprehensive restoration can often be required.
