If you have a lot of issues with your teeth, it may seem overwhelming to think of getting all of them taken care of. Full mouth reconstruction may be the answer – read on to learn more about the benefits of this approach and to see if it might be right for you.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A person can have several issues with their teeth. They may be damaged, broken, or missing altogether. Old dental restorations, such as fillings, inlays, or onlays, may be damaged. Issues with teeth can cause problems and pain with the jaw joint.
In full mouth reconstruction, a treatment plan consisting of a combination of treatments, is created just for you and whatever issues you have. The entire process can take one appointment or several and can include procedures such as porcelain veneers, bridges, implants for one or more teeth, and orthodontics to help correct a misaligned bite.
Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for Me?
Dr. Konig will, of course, be able to tell you if full mouth reconstruction might be right for you. If you only have problems with a couple of your teeth, a single procedure will probably suffice; however, many patients face a variety of problems that should be addressed together for the patient to see real progress in their oral health. Here is what full mouth reconstruction can fix:
- Teeth. Full mouth reconstruction may be the answer if you are missing many teeth, have multiple teeth that are broken, or have teeth that have been worn down from years of tooth grinding.
- Gums. If not treated early enough, gum disease can threaten the health of your teeth and jaw.
- Jaw and bite. If you have a misaligned bite, it can damage your teeth and end up causing you constant pain.
Full mouth reconstruction doesn’t just improve your oral health – it also gives you a great smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
