Sometimes extensive dental issues can keep us from smiling. If you are plagued by jaw pain, or if the condition of your teeth has prevented you from feeling and looking your best, a full mouth reconstruction may be an option to consider.
Buckner Family Dental is here to help you get the healthy, bright, confident smile you’ve always wanted.
Full mouth reconstructions are generally used when a person has a number of different dental problems that need repair. If you have lost teeth due to decay, if your teeth have cracked or chipped you may consider this procedure. In addition, if you have a number of teeth that have been worn down due to tooth grinding or eroded by exposure to acidic food and drink, a full mouth reconstruction might be in order. Your dentist may also suggest a full mouth reconstruction if your teeth are causing health issues such as jaw pain, headaches, or for a number of cosmetic dentistry issues.
There are a number of different procedures used during a full mouth reconstruction, and each patient is different. In order to achieve your desired results, you may need:
In some cases, ortognathic surgery may be required to ensure your jaw is properly placed, or to graft soft tissue and prepare your tooth structure for future crowns or veneers.
A full mouth reconstruction is usually carried out over a period of several months due to the multiple procedures involved. During your initial visits, your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your jaw, gums, and teeth. X-rays and impressions of your jaws and teeth will usually be taken, and your dentist will most likely make a model of your overall bite. These will help your dentist make recommendations as to which procedures are needed. If you are suffering from periodontal disease, your gums will need to be treated first, in order to ensure that any future work is successful. Your dentist will then evaluate all of these factors as well as your facial structure itself in order to create a customized treatment plan for your full mouth reconstruction. Our Dallas dentist Jaime Osorio DDS is ready to help with your full mouth reconstruction questions.
