Reasons for Full Mouth Reconstruction
There are many reasons you may need a full mouth reconstruction and a few of those reasons are:
- The loss of teeth through bacterial decay, trauma, or infection of the gums and mouth.
- Your teeth are cracked, chipped, injured, or fractured to the point that they are unrecoverable.
- The wearing down of the enamel. This can be a result of too much acid erosion from drinking soda or eating acidic foods such as citrus fruit and others. Tooth grinding during the day or in your sleep is also a factor in the erosion of your natural enamel.
- You suffer from severe pain associated from TMJ and your natural ability to bite correctly.
The Full Mouth Rehabilitation Procedure
If you have been told that you may possibly need a full mouth reconstruction, call Burch Dental today for a consultation. Our team will do a full consultation and exam to find out what procedures would give you the best results. We will only recommend solutions that we feel will help your body health as a whole and solutions that are more permanent, so the issues do not return. We will examine the following to determine whether you need full mouth reconstruction dental treatment:
- Teeth: The first step is to do a full examination of your teeth. We will look for cracks, teeth wear and tear, cavities, and more. It might be recommended to consider other dental procedures during this time such as crowns, veneers, dental bridges, or other restorative treatment.
- Your Bite: When you bite down on food or just in general, it should not cause you any pain or discomfort. Occlusal changes in your bite need to be addressed first before receiving restoration treatments. In some cases, Burch Dental may recommend orthodontics or a simple night guard to correct occlusion before additional restorative procedures can be performed.
- Aesthetics: A full exam will be done to determine how your mouth, teeth, and jaws look aesthetically. Our team will be looking for any irregularities, sizes and proportions of your teeth, front and side profiles of your face, as well as any loss in bone that might be causing sagging or drooping in your face.
- Periodontal Disease: We will examine your mouth to determine if you have any gum disease or bacterial infections in your mouth. We may recommend a treatment such as scaling, or root planing to treat the periodontal disease first. We need to find any deep pockets or weaknesses in the bone before doing full mouth reconstruction treatment.
