Full mouth reconstruction, also called full mouth restoration or full mouth rehabilitation, restores the look and function of teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. Often, full mouth reconstruction is used prior to other restorative treatments (such as dental implants) that correct damage in both the upper and lower jaws.
At Dental Spa of Orange, we offer a range of full mouth reconstruction treatments including crowns, bridges, cosmetic procedures, gum treatment, and more.
What does full mouth reconstruction treat?
Full mouth restorations may be used to treat many dental problems including:
- Worn, decayed, or damaged teeth
- Malocclusion (facial pain, chronic jaw pain, or headache due to misalignment of bite)
Full Mouth Reconstruction with Dental Implants
Full mouth rehabilitation can be used a preparatory step toward placing dental implants. When several teeth or a full arch require replacement, full mouth restoration helps to ensure the successful placement of your dental implants. Restoration in combination with implants provide a lasting transformation to both your oral health and your smile. These procedures require detailed surgical work and should therefore only be trusted to highly trained specialists. At Dental Spa of Orange our expert team uses their combined years of knowledge and care to ensure your safety and comfort at every stage.
Full mouth restorations are tailored to the unique needs of each patient, however there are some steps common to most procedures.
First, an initial examination determines which treatments are right for you according to the extent of damage, the type of damage, your oral health, and what future problems treatment can prevent. During this examination, the dentist will check the health and condition of your:
- Bite alignment
- Jaw muscles
- Temporomandibular joints
The condition of your natural teeth determines the best treatment for you. Before any major treatment, the dentist must determine that you have sufficient tooth and gum health. Otherwise, the treatments are more likely to fail and may even worsen your oral health. Gum disease may be treated using a procedure known as scaling and planning to remove infected tissue. Misalignment and other problems will also be corrected prior to restoration to ensure the success of your treatment as well as your health, safety, and comfort.
When all is said and done, you will have a beautiful, healthy smile that will last for years! To learn more about full mouth reconstruction, please give us a call. We will be glad to answer any questions you may have and assist you in scheduling your initial consultation.
