Candidates for full mouth reconstructions include those with broken, missing, worn, or otherwise damaged or diseased teeth. Patients with chronic jaw pain or tenderness, headaches and backaches, as well as a clicking or popping noise in the jaw joint may also benefit from a full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Frame, our Santa Clara dentist, can help you decide on the best treatments for your needs.
Why Are They Needed?
You may need a full mouth reconstruction to correct serious bite or skeletal abnormalities, to improve jaw function or to restore the health of your teeth and gums. Each part of your mouth has its own job, but the parts mainly work together to create a whole. When any part of your smile fails, from the teeth and gums to the underlying bones, the failure can put other parts of your smile at risk. Dr. Frame uses a full mouth reconstruction to rebuild your smile bit-by-bit until it is fully functional, healthy and attractive.
What Are My Options?
We will determine the necessary treatments after a comprehensive exam. Treatments may include:
• Periodontal disease treatments
• Dental bonding
• TMJ treatments
• Dental implants
• Porcelain crowns
• Root canal therapy
• Dental bridges
• Porcelain veneers
• Teeth whitening
Although the process is not cosmetic in nature, the all-around look of your smile will improve with treatment. This can help restore not only your smile, but it can also restore your confidence.
