Goals of Full Mouth Reconstruction

Happy patient

Many patients come to us with many dental and oral issues, including cosmetic and structural problems. In these cases, our dentist often recommends a full mouth reconstruction. This process involves any treatments and procedures needed for each individual patient. Here is a look at what reconstructions typically address.

Gum health:

There are many issues that can arise in the gums. A gummy smile can make the mouth look big, yet the teeth too small. Gum disease, gingivitis or the more severe periodontitis, have many symptoms, including red, inflamed, and receding tissue. Gum disease can even develop into serious overall health issues, such as diabetes and heart conditions. We can reduce gum tissue, as well as treat disease with scaling and root planing, flap surgery, and other procedures.

Restorations:

For teeth that have suffered damage or decay, a dental crown or filling can restore both strength and look. Many dentists offer same day restorations that are perfectly made for each tooth. Porcelain and composite resin are often used, as they are both durable materials and match the color of the teeth.

Other issues that can be addressed during a full mouth reconstruction include poor structure, chips and cracks, and missing teeth. Talk to our dentist about how your smile could benefit from this option today.
