Full Mouth Restoration
Full mouth restoration with the highest quality of care
Full mouth restoration is the re-creation of every tooth in the mouth. It can restore your looks, eliminate chronic pain, and improve your overall health. In my practice we combine the art of cosmetic dentistry with the skills of restorative dentistry to provide the highest quality of care for full mouth reconstruction.
This is a comprehensive approach to dental care with the specific goal to restore the proper form, function, health and esthetics of a patient’s mouth that has deteriorated due to tooth decay, gum infections, dental abscess, trauma, poorly managed past dental care or lack of care. Also, certain medical conditions such as diabetes, cancer care (chemo and radiation), and eating disorders such bulimia and anorexia can have debilitating effects on one’s oral health. In these cases a comprehensive approach to full mouth restoration is required.
Full mouth restoration restores not only teeth but also the confidence that may have been lost long ago as failing dentition has left the patient without the ability to eat, speak, or even smile.
Full mouth restoration patients not only experience dramatic improvements in the function and look of their mouths, but overall improvement their health, as well. Nutritional status improves because they can eat a wider variety of foods and chew more efficiently. Plus, the elimination of active infections and chronic periodontal disease has been proven to be a boon to heart health.
Full mouth restoration encompasses many (sometimes all) aspects of dentistry: crowns, permanent bridges, removable prostheses (partial dentures, overdentures) and implant-supported restorations.
As for implants, their role in full mouth restoration is prominent. Implant dentistry enables me to replace missing teeth with permanent bridges or with what is referred to as overdentures. An overdenture is a special type of denture that snaps rigidly or semi-rigidly onto underlying implants (as opposed to conventional dentures that “float” on the gums.)
You could be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction if you have any the following conditions:
- Severe TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder)
- A bite discrepancy
- Deterioration of appearance
- Teeth that are loose
- Missing teeth
- Worn, chipped, or cracked teeth
- Bridges or implants that continually crack or break
