Why Choose Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction is used when a tooth-by-tooth solution is no longer adequate to address your dental problems. We use it when treating just one or a few teeth wouldn’t solve the problem and may actually cause damage.
It’s not unusual for people to come in looking for a solution to a certain problem, such as pain in one tooth, or an unattractive smile, but in reality the source of the problem is much bigger than they suspected.
Common reasons why you might need full mouth reconstruction include:
- Tooth erosion and decay
- Gum disease
- Bad bite
With decay, you might notice that one or more teeth might have cavities, but erosion can be more subtle. Teeth might be badly damaged, but they seem healthy, for now, or perhaps slightly discolored. Eroded teeth are best treated before they start to fail.
Gum disease can impact many teeth at once. When oral bacteria infect the space between teeth and gums, it isn’t just impacting gums, it’s impacting the bone that secures your teeth. Teeth can begin shifting and may be lost. Until the whole mouth is made healthy again, all teeth can be at risk.
A bad bite subjects your teeth to excessive or imbalanced forces. This can cause some teeth to get worn down or fail, which can further imbalance forces, promoting even more damage. A successful solution often requires treating many or all teeth at once to restore a balanced bite.
Trauma can impact many teeth at once. Sometimes, even though a few teeth are impacted directly, the result may be a bad bite that damages other teeth.
Full Mouth Reconstruction or Smile Makeover?
Sometimes, you may hear people talk about a smile makeover as a procedure that seeks to remake your smile by combining multiple cosmetic procedures and treating multiple or all teeth. So what’s the difference between these two procedures? The procedures are comparable, but sometimes people like to distinguish between them.
In that case, people will usually use full mouth reconstruction to refer to treatments that repair or heal teeth. Smile makeovers may be used for teeth that are more healthy but need wide-ranging cosmetic attention.
