In cosmetic dentistry, a reconstruction of the entire mouth is performed to enhance a person’s smile and overall mouth aesthetics. It may include minor procedures like veneers and bonding, as well as more complicated ones such as orthodontic treatments to correct the alignment of teeth and dental implants to substitute the severely broken or damaged teeth. Additionally, crowns, bridgework, inlays, and onlays are also used to provide restorative benefit in some cases.
Nowadays, with the help of the latest dental technology and medical equipment, problems within the mouth are quickly identified. Computer-aided smile design and 3D previews are some of the programs dentists use to provide a perfect and sound treatment. Accordingly, the necessary procedures are carried out for a full mouth reconstruction.
When Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Essential?
Several reasons could make you an ideal candidate for full mouth reconstruction.
- Oral Disease: When you have gingivitis or periodontal disease, in which your gums have become infected, a full mouth reconstruction may be in order.
- Jaw Pain: If you have headaches or feel pain in the jaw due to malocclusions, a full mouth reconstruction could be beneficial for you.
- Teeth Erosion: Worn out or shabby teeth can be fixed with full mouth reconstruction.
- Accident: If you have been involved in an accident and, as a result, have suffered injury or damage to the mouth and loss of teeth, full mouth reconstruction could be helpful for you.
What Procedures are Included in a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
- Orthodontic treatments may be necessary to help move the teeth in the desired locations for an appealing look. Teeth straightening procedures are widely preferred by even adults, which were earlier thought of as a treatment choice for teens and young people.
- Dental crown restorations could also be used to conceal teeth that are severely yellowed or need to be reshaped because of cracks or chips. They also help to strengthen a tooth that has undergone a root canal procedure.
- Deep cleaning is needed to ensure proper care for teeth and gums. Complete oral health is critical; every patient should visit their dentist for good teeth cleaning at least twice a year.
- Fixing dental implants might be needed if the implants are damaged somehow. For this procedure, bone grafting may be necessary to improve the strength of your jaw bone.
- Contouring of the gums could be performed to help the look of your overall smile.
- Veneers can be placed to hide the imperfections of the teeth. They can reshape and whiten teeth, close gaps between the teeth, etc.
- Dental implants might be suggested to replace an extracted or missing tooth. It is very vital to replace missing teeth right away to avoid jaw bone problems in the future.
- Orthographic surgery might be required in some instances to reposition the jaw for better functioning of your smile.
