A healthy dentition does not only improve the smile of a person, it also contributes largely to an overall healthy living. However, not everyone can boast of such. Dental issues may occur that can cascade into more problems, resulting in depletion of oral abilities. These patients may require a full mouth reconstruction.
WHAT IS A FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION?
A full mouth reconstruction is a range of dental procedures that we do to repair, rebuild, and restore the entire outlook and function of the mouth. Full mouth reconstructions usually combine two or more procedures to get the desired results. Typically, these reconstructions combine procedures from cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry to achieve a satisfactory reconstruction.
WHO CAN GET A FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION?
Patients suffering from serious dental issues that affect their oral health can receive this procedure. Patients who have numerous missing teeth from trauma or injuries, decay in many teeth that require extraction, or were born with some oral conditions are good candidates for full mouth reconstructions. Oftentimes, patients who want more from the appearance of their teeth and mouth also opt for a full mouth reconstruction.
PROCEDURES INVOLVED IN A FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
Procedures in a full mouth construction may differ from one patient to another. But usually patients may require teeth extraction if they have damaged or decayed teeth. Bone graft is also available for patients who require dental implants but do not have adequate jawbone mass. Patients with missing teeth can get placement of prostheses such as dental implants, dentures, crowns, dental bridges, or veneers depending on the amount of missing teeth.
Full mouth reconstruction also has procedures that treat the gums and jaw for patients with related issues. Furthermore, patients receive deep cleanings for teeth and gum maintenance. While all these may seem like a lot, they are just some of many procedures involved in a full mouth reconstruction.
