Full mouth reconstruction, rehabilitation, and restoration involves the repair and restoration of badly damaged, infected, or missing teeth. This surgery not just improves the esthetic of your smile but also offers ease in oral functions.
What Is Considered During a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is recommended for patients who require extensive dental treatments for:
Correction of jawbone positioning
Replacement of defective restoration.
Repair or replacement of damaged or missing teeth.
Full mouth reconstruction involves the combination of restorative treatments like dental fillings, veneers, inlays and onlays, crowns, dental implants, root canal therapy, orthodontia, bone grafting, and more.
Since the treatment is quite comprehensive, it often takes longer than 12 months to compete. At Surprise Smiles, David Frausto, DDS and Diana Kim, DDS need to consider several factors for full mouth reconstruction include:
Soft and Hard Tissues
The soft tissues include the gums, tongue, inner cheeks, and inner lips. The hard tissues of the mouth include the teeth and the supporting bony structures of the jaw. In addition, your mouth is also made of various connective tissues like blood capillaries and nerves that should be considered when performing reconstruction surgery.
Upper and Lower Arch
When considering full mouth reconstruction, it is important to understand the relationship between the upper jaw and the lower jaw. This involves looking at the client's occlusion (bite) and how their teeth work in conjunction with their jaw joint.
If any of these elements have a defect or illness, it can have an adverse effect on the functions and health of your mouth and jaw.
Full mouth reconstruction may also be beneficial for patients who have oral cancer. This involves not just restoring lost teeth but also correcting other tissues of the oral cavity.
If you have multiple dental and oral health issues, full mouth reconstruction can help you correct them. Call us at (602) 842-4864 today to schedule an appointment.
