1. You want to Improve your Oral Health & Overall Health

The top sign you can benefit from a full mouth reconstruction is if you want to improve your oral health and overall health. When there are multiple problems going on in your smile like gum disease, tooth decay, trauma, or a bad bite, we will need multiple procedures to fix these issues. In some cases, we might need to extract your teeth and provide you with dentures or dental implants. We look at each patient on an individual basis. Our number one goal is to give you a completely healthy smile at the end of your treatment.

As a result of your healthy smile, your overall health will also benefit. Unhealthy teeth don’t just affect your mouth, they affect your whole body. For example, if you have gum disease, the infection can spread into your bloodstream and affect other areas of your body like your heart. Those with gum disease have a higher risk of heart disease than those who don’t. Tooth infections that usually require root canals can also spread. Without treatment, your tooth infection can end up in your brain and become fatal.

2. You Want a Stronger Dental Structure

When we plan for your full mouth reconstruction, we take your dental structure into consideration. This means that if your bite if off, we will address this in the reconstruction. We will also ensure that each of your teeth possesses the strength and durability they need for you to chew and function. We may use dental crowns, porcelain veneers, dentures, or even dental implants to restore your teeth.

Other aspects of dental structure we take into consideration are your jaw bone, gums and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). When you lose bone mass in your jaw, this can lead to an aged appearance, and weaken the support of remaining teeth in your mouth. Your gum health is also responsible for keeping your teeth in place. By addressing bone mass or gum issues we can ensure your teeth have a strong foundation to keep them in place. If we find inflammation in your TMJ, or notice any other TMJ symptoms like jaw pain or frequent headaches, we will also include TMJ treatment into your full mouth reconstruction to protect your restored smile from future problems and pain.
