There are a number of reasons why you might need to undergo full mouth reconstruction, including:
Your dentist can perform a comprehensive dental exam to determine whether you are a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction. The exam will focus on:
Any cavities, decay, cracks, root canal issues, loose teeth, and short or long teeth will need to be addressed with procedures such as crowns, bridges, implants, inlays, onlays, or even veneers.
If there is any indication of gum disease, you might need to visit a General Dentist for gum disease treatment. If your gums are not in good health, a non-surgical scaling and root planing procedure or more intensive treatments such as periodontal surgery may be necessary. Your team of oral professionals will need to prepare your teeth and gums for the reconstruction phases.
Your dentist will determine the state of your bite and whether or not chewing and daily activities are interfering with the health of your teeth. Your occlusion (the way in which your teeth fit together) as well as the overall health of your jaw joints will need to be reviewed before undergoing any type of reconstructive procedure.
Your dentist will take a closer look at the overall appearance of your teeth and evaluate their size and proportions. They will also evaluate how your teeth look in relation to your gums, lips, mouth, and overall facial structure
Since every case is unique, only qualified dental professionals can determine exactly which procedures you will need for full mouth reconstruction. Most procedures are performed in a series of phases and the entire treatment process can take up to 12 months or more. Procedures may include:
