What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

1914 imageset 1 after.jpg 1914 imageset 1 before.jpgLow self-confidence in your smile can feel like an isolating experience. But if you don’t love the smile looking back at you in the mirror, you are far from alone. The New York Post reports that more than half of Americans feel insecure about their teeth, causing 57% of us to cover our mouths when we laugh and one in two of us to always attempt to smile with a closed mouth. If you have these feelings, a full mouth reconstruction may be an option.

What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Also called full mouth rehabilitation and full mouth restoration, full mouth reconstruction is a group of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures that help a patient restore function and aesthetics to their smile.

A full mouth reconstruction often involves a combination of treatments such as dental implants, bridges, and crowns to help a patient regain facial volume, restore lost functionality, and enhance their smile.

What Are the Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Because the procedure is different for every person and their smile needs, the exact steps in the process will differ from person to person. But the benefits of a full reconstruction can be felt by everyone. Here are just a few of the advantages you might see depending on your needs:

  • Repair of broken or damaged teeth
  • Replacement of a whole missing tooth
  • Replacement of prior dental work that needs restoration
  • Alignment of the jaw for optimum comfort and functionality
  • Alignment of the bite
  • Improved self-confidence
  • An easier time eating and chewing foods
  • Addressing pain in the mouth
  • Reduces risk of tooth decay and gum disease
  • Preservation of teeth long-term

What Is the Best Option for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

The process should be performed based on your needs and preferences. Patients with extensive tooth loss will need to consider how they can first restore the structure and function of their mouth. Those whose teeth are in place but damaged, chipped, or broken will need to explore restoration options with a qualified dentist.

Along the way, your dentist will discuss the cosmetic benefits of each treatment. If you are unhappy with the shade of your natural teeth, a teeth whitening procedure before placing crowns, bridges, or implants is recommended to achieve the desired final results.

Protect Your Oral Health

Keep in mind that full mouth reconstruction is not just a cosmetic procedure. It also will positively impact your dental and overall health, benefiting you for the rest of your life. The benefits of full mouth reconstruction are far-reaching and long-term.

You may have heard the statistics about the effect our oral health has on our overall health. Poor oral health can increase an individual’s risk of cardiovascular (heart) disease.

Bacteria that live in our mouth can cause inflammation and damage in the heart after the bacteria enters the bloodstream. Gum disease is also linked to a host of health problems, including kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer, blood cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and more. Full mouth reconstruction addresses the root of your teeth and gum problems, keeping you healthier for longer.
