This comprehensive treatment plan can combine both restorative and cosmetic procedures to restore oral health and appearance.
When to Consider Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Patients who are struggling with multiple oral health complications are usually candidates for full-mouth reconstruction. This treatment is also suitable for patients who have suffered severe oral trauma. You should consider full-mouth reconstruction if you are suffering from any combination of:
- Missing teeth
- Damage such as chips, cracks, or fractures
- Periodontal (gum) disease
- Eroded tooth enamel
- Crooked, gapped, or otherwise misaligned teeth
Designing Your Customized
Prior to treatment, you will meet with Dr. Crawford or Dr. Leishman to discuss your treatment goals and assess your candidacy. Your doctor will perform an in-depth examination, which may include taking x-rays and other images. Once he determines you can benefit from a full-mouth reconstruction, he will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is personalized to meet your needs. Your full-mouth reconstruction can include nearly any combination of restorative or cosmetic dental procedures that will meet your needs. Some of the procedures you may want to consider include:
- Dental implants and implant-supported restorations to restore missing teeth
- Tooth-colored fillings to repair decayed teeth
- Dental crowns to repair teeth with more severe decay or damage
- Periodontal treatments to eliminate gum disease
- Gum contouring to create a more even and symmetrical gum line
- Invisalign® to correct misalignment
- Porcelain veneers to mask chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth
Although it is possible to combine more than one procedure into a single appointment, most full-mouth reconstruction plans are completed in stages. Procedures such as dental implants require a lengthy healing period between surgery and restoration placement. Your doctor will take all these factors into consideration and create a plan that will achieve your goals with the fewest number of visits.
Benefits of Comprehensive Treatment
The health of your teeth and gums are integral to your quality of life. If you are experiencing multiple oral health issues, a full-mouth reconstruction can address the health of your entire smile, rather than focusing on just one part. This helps ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy, and that your bite is properly aligned, preventing teeth grinding, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and other oral heath issues.
