At Great Alpine Dental, we embrace a fundamental truth: good oral health is vital to your life. As such, we are committed to giving your teeth the care they deserve and your smile the uplift you’ve been longing for.
But unfortunately, you can suffer from tooth, mouth or jaw problems at any stage in your life, and if the damage is extensive, you may need to consider full mouth reconstruction.
What is full mouth reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is the complete repair or replacement of all or most teeth, to help you regain the full functioning of your teeth and see significant improvement in their appearance.
When do you need full mouth reconstruction?
There are many circumstances where you may need full mouth reconstruction, including:
- You suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) and have worn away your teeth to the point they can no longer function properly.
- Chronic conditions have resulted in extensive wear on your teeth.
- You have suffered a traumatic event that has caused extensive damage to your teeth.
The process of full mouth reconstruction
Generally speaking, a full mouth reconstruction involves:
- A comprehensive dental examination to ensure a full mouth reconstruction is necessary and that you are healthy enough for it.
- Taking X-rays or other images of your teeth.
- Creating a digital design of your new smile.
- Creating an individualised treatment plan.
- Multiple office visits to conduct dental work.
Benefits of full mouth reconstruction
Improved chewing and a more comfortable bite
You likely have suffered from major chewing and dental issues if full mouth reconstruction is necessary. Full mouth reconstruction can mean you can chew, move your jaw, and bite more comfortably.
Protection of teeth from further cracking, wear, and damage
The materials used in a full mouth reconstruction are designed specifically for your mouth. You will find that the new materials are strong and can protect your teeth from future damage.
Dental care is critical to your speech, and repositioning or repairing your teeth can result in smoother sounds and more understandable speech.
Some treatments for full mouth reconstruction include:
Dental fillings are used to fill cavities. This is a common procedure and is often part of any full mouth reconstruction.
Crowns and bridges
If existing teeth need repair, crowns and bridges may be used. Depending on the state and positioning of the teeth, you may have them repaired with a crown or bridge.
Root canal therapy
Root canal therapy is a common treatment for a tooth with a cavity, abscess, or infection so severe that it has damaged the tooth. It involves removing inflamed material, including the tooth nerve. From there, a dentist will clean the tooth, and then use a dental filling to repair the cavity.
