Full Mouth Reconstruction commonly refers to the restoration or rebuilding of all one’s teeth in the upper and lower jaw. Full mouth reconstruction does not only apply with one who is completely edentulous (missing all teeth) and in need of full dentures. Full mouth reconstruction will allow the dentist to repair multiple problems in the mouth at one time.

Patients do not need to worry since we will sit down with each patient and go over all of the details with that specific patient’s procedure. With full mouth reconstruction, each patient will need a treatment that is slightly different than another. By customizing the treatment to each individual, we can help ensure that the patient is completely satisfied with the result. There are multiple reasons as to why a patient may need full mouth reconstruction, including trauma, infection and long-term wear.

Since accidents can happen at any time, it is difficult to prepare for the possibility of damaging more than one tooth. Through full mouth reconstruction, the dentist will be able to repair the mouth, while also repairing the appearance and functionality of a patient’s teeth.

If a patient experiences an accident that results in damage to the teeth, seeking an emergency dentist as soon as possible is a necessity. If a patient goes to a normal emergency room after damaging a tooth, the nurse will only be able to triage the wounds but not treat the condition.

Patients assume that the only option will be one that merely imitates the appearance of a natural tooth and that the patient will have to practice caution when eating for the rest of his or her life. In reality, we can provide possible treatments such as dental implants, dental bonding, dental crowns, dental veneers, dental bridges and more to help repair the appearance and functionality of the tooth. After a full mouth reconstruction patients will be able to smile confidently and eat what they like since our repairs are long-lasting and sturdy. There is no need for a patient to live with a cracked or damaged set of teeth.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Infection” style=”round” open=”true” css_animation=”fadeIn”]

In other cases, a patient may lose multiple teeth to dental caries (tooth decay), gum disease or other infections. Upon infection, the dentist will do everything in his or her power to prevent the spreading. However, some patients may not visit the dentist at least once every six months and allow the infection to spread. If the infection spreads to the tooth, then there is a possibility that an extraction will be necessary.

When a patient has an infection, a root canal is one option to treat the tooth. A root canal allows the dentist to remove the infected pulp and clean the area. Following a root canal, we will plug up the hole with a dental filling. In the cases where the tooth is removed due to infection, we may recommend a dental implant. The dental implant is a titanium post that bonds with the jaw bone through osseointegration. We will also place a dental crown on top of the implant to create a sturdy and natural-looking tooth.

If the infection has spread to multiple teeth, Vanraj Modhvadia DDS will recommend the best option for treating the infection and repairing one’s teeth.

For some people, proper dental care is not a common part of daily life. When one chooses to not practice proper dental care, the teeth wear down more quickly as a result. Acid from certain foods, types of citrus, beverages, acid reflux, grinding and more are all causes for a patient to lose his or her teeth more quickly

The tools, options and restorations for a full mouth reconstruction include:

  • Dental implants
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental veneers
  • Dental bridges
  • Dentures
  • Root canal

Some patients may have concerns over the price of full mouth reconstructions and avoid the necessary treatment. The longer one goes without the necessary treatment, the great the pain and risk. For instance, an adult who loses a tooth and does not seek treatment will allow the jaw to weaken over time. If the jaw weakens enough, then there will not be a way to install a dental implant in the gap.

In other cases, a gap can become infected just as a tooth can; especially if the individual does not keep it clean. The full mouth reconstruction process will take multiple appointments to customize the restoration and then install it. However, it will be worth it since the restoration will give back complete functionality of the teeth.

The difference between a full mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dental care is that a full mouth reconstruction is a necessity and not a choice.
