Have you ever heard of the terms full-mouth reconstruction, full-mouth restoration, and full-mouth rehabilitation? These terms essentially mean the same thing: a smile makeover. Reconstruction of the mouth and/or teeth includes an array of procedures that create a uniform smile, restore proper jaw alignment, and improve overall oral health. Although full-mouth restoration can take months to complete, many patients report that they feel better about themselves and believe that the quality of their life has vastly improved.
What Types of Situations Require Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
- Extensive tooth decay among many teeth
- Worn down teeth from bruxism and acid erosion
- Chronic facial pain, TMJ disorder symptoms, and bite problems (malocclusion)
- Traumatic facial and oral injuries
- Fractured teeth
What Kinds of Procedures are Involved?
Full mouth reconstruction can involve varying combinations of different procedures. The extent of each procedure largely depends on the individual needs of the patient. Below are some common reconstructive procedures.
- Porcelain Crowns
- White Fillings
- Dental Implants
- Porcelain Veneers
- Teeth Whitening
- TMJ Therapy
- Jaw Reconstruction
- Gum Lifts
