The practice of repairing and reconstructing your mouth's appearance and function using multiple procedures simultaneously is known as a full mouth reconstruction. A full mouth reconstruction usually involves a general or a cosmetic dentist that will execute several procedures in a patient's mouth to look perfect appearance-wise and functionally. These procedures are called as full mouth reconstruction because it consists of more than one cosmetic dental procedure. These procedures can include dental bridges, dental crowns, fillings, dental implants, tooth extractions, veneers, and much more. Additionally, a full mouth reconstruction involves the repair and maintenance of the patient's gums to ensure total oral health in all facets.
What kind of procedures is included in a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
- Deep cleanings are carried out for proper maintenance for both teeth and gums. Total oral health is exceedingly essential; every patient should visit their dentist for a good tooth cleaning once every six months.
- Orthodontic treatment may be essential to help shift the teeth in the needed positions for a flawless look. Adult braces are increasingly becoming more popular to improve their smile.
- To enhance the strength of your jaw bone for a dental implant to be placed, bone grafting may be required.
- The contouring of the gums could be done to help enhance the appearance of your smile.
- The Veneers could be added to create an attractive look for your teeth. Veneers can whiten, reshape, resize, and close gaps of the front teeth.
- The dental crowns could help strengthen the tooth after a root-canal procedure. They can also be used to conceal any other natural tooth that is badly yellowed or needs to be reshaped because it has cracked or chipped.
- A dental implant may be advised to replace a missing tooth or an extracted tooth. It is crucial to replace missing teeth immediately to avoid jaw bone issues in the future.
- In extreme cases, an orthographic surgery may have to be conducted to reposition the jaw for an enhanced smile.
