When to Consider a Full Mouth Reconstruction
A full mouth reconstruction can significantly improve a person’s smile. However, it is important to understand that such a reconstruction is not generally completed in just one procedure. When dealing with the entire mouth, there are usually multiple appointments and procedures to be had in order to produce a brand new reconstructed smile.
Want to know when to consider a full mouth reconstruction? We go over a few reasons to consider one and when it may be beneficial. This information may help patients decide whether a reconstruction should be in their future.
Reasons a dentist may recommend a full mouth reconstruction
Having a full mouth reconstruction done may help improve a person’s overall appearance as well as their oral and dental health. Find out more about when a full mouth reconstruction may be worth considering.
When the teeth begin to decay, it is often a good idea to consider a full mouth reconstruction. Severely decaying teeth can be difficult to bring back to good health, but with the help of replacement or restorative procedures, the mouth will be able to function again. Tooth decay can be dealt with through dental crowns, fillings or even replacement methods such as dentures or implants. All of these procedures fall under the full mouth reconstruction umbrella.
There are times when tooth decay becomes so bad that the teeth need to be extracted or else they rot away, which then means the mouth is missing teeth. A full mouth reconstruction can replace missing teeth so that full functionality can be gained once again. Tooth replacement options such as dentures or implants are likely to be part of the reconstruction, as they are the most common treatments for tooth loss.
Full mouth reconstructions are not just for badly damaged teeth. They can also be done in order to improve a person’s smile. If there are crooked teeth or an uneven bite that may make a person reluctant to show off their smile, then they should consider undergoing teeth straightening, which also falls under the reconstruction umbrella.
As surprising as it may sound, the gums can become so infected that the entire mouth plummets into an unhealthy state. The gums are responsible for supporting the teeth, so if they become diseased they may not be able to hold the teeth stably in place. In turn, this could cause problems such as loose teeth and infections.
A full mouth reconstruction should be considered if a person’s gum disease is severe. Different procedures such as grafting or scaling may help to improve the gums, which will also improve oral health.
