Are extensive dental issues keeping you from looking and feeling as happy and confident as you can be? A full mouth reconstruction may be the solution. This cosmetic dentistry procedure offered by Manhattan Beach Dental Center can help correct the issues you have and give you the wonderful, bright, amazing smile that you’ve always wanted.
What dental issues can a full mouth reconstruction fix?
Full mouth reconstruction is designed to remedy a number of different cosmetic dentistry issues. Teeth lost due to decay, fractured teeth, and eroded teeth are just a few of the issues that can be repaired with a full mouth reconstruction. In addition, if your bite is causing discomforts such as headaches, jaw pain, and teeth grinding, a full mouth reconstruction can help.
What is the process for receiving a full mouth reconstruction?
Each person is different, and so is each full mouth reconstruction. Before beginning, your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Impressions of your teeth will be made, and x-rays and impressions of your upper and lower jaws will also be taken. Your dentist will most likely also create a model of your overall bite. Based on these, as well as the condition of your teeth, your dentist may recommend a number of different procedures. If you’re experiencing periodontal disease, your dentist may treat your gums by scaling or root planing, as they will provide the foundation for any other dental work. Inlays, onlays, or veneers may be recommended as well.
What procedures are involved in a full mouth reconstruction?
The specific procedures will vary from person to person, and the process can take up to several months. In cases where the jaw needs to be corrected, orthognathic surgery may be recommended. Orthodontics, dental implants, crowns, teeth cleaning and whitening, and bridgework or other dental restorations may also be recommended based on your particular situation. Your dentist will meet with you to lay out a customized treatment plan before beginning any restoration work, and will most likely be able to show you a before and after the model of how your smile will be affected by each procedure.
