November 21, 2016 - 3 minutes read

Just hearing the words “restorative dentistry” can set one’s teeth on edge. But if you’re suffering from extensive mouth and tooth damage, full mouth reconstruction might be just the solution to give you back your smile. Having a healthy mouth full of beautiful white teeth gives you a confidence you might not have experienced in a long time. Our team at Eggleston Dental Care can help you get back that great look that time and tooth damage have stolen.

What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Unlike single, less invasive treatments that simply serve as touchups, such as veneers or recontouring, full mouth reconstruction involves an individualized approach to correct multiple problems. Also known by the gentler term full mouth rehabilitation, this restorative dentistry process takes place over time, using various treatments to create a healthy mouth and teeth.

Conditions that can lead to the point of needing mouth reconstruction may include:

  • TMJ disorder (caused by grinding, jaw misalignment, or injury)
  • Gum disease and/or periodontal bone disorders
  • Cavities
  • Missing teeth
  • Acid reflux

If you’ve avoided having oral health issues treated as they have occurred over time, you may have a buildup of problems which require extensive work by an experienced restorative dentist.

Depending upon your specific mouth issues and needs, procedures that may be utilized during full mouth reconstruction could include:

  • Tooth extraction
  • Periodontal disease treatment
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Tooth implants
  • Veneers
  • Fillings
  • TMJ disorder treatment

Thanks to advances in dental procedures and materials, creating a healthy new smile is within your reach. Of course, you want an experienced restorative dentist office which offers high quality basic dental care. However, you also need a team that is trained in the healthy function and treatment of the entire jaw and mouth.

Many times, people avoid having tooth damage fixed because they are scared, or because it’s not always easy to find a qualified, reliable dentist they can trust. Our team can help create a plan for the full mouth reconstruction treatments you need to get back that incredible smile you’ve been missing. Your quality of life will improve, and you will feel better about yourself than ever. You deserve to feel confident when you share your joy with the world!
