During a full mouth restoration procedure, all teeth undergo various restorative treatments. A full mouth reconstruction may be necessary if several teeth are severely damaged by decay, injury, or tooth grinding. Apart from affecting a person’s ability to eat and speak properly, missing teeth can cause serious dental issues and hence should not be ignored.
How a Full Mouth Restoration Begins
The dentist first performs a comprehensive examination of your mouth. This includes taking impressions of your upper and lower teeth, as well as x-rays and photographs. The results of the exam will allow your dentist develop a treatment plan to achieve the results you desire.
Don’t hesitate to ask your dentist further about your treatment plan. Your dentist will walk you through the benefits and risks of each procedure included in the full mouth restoration process.
Full Mouth Restoration Treatments
There are various restorative treatment options that can be used during a full mouth restoration procedure. The following may be included:
Dental Crowns. A dental crown is a cap custom made to cover a damaged tooth.
Dental Bridges. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting into the gap.
Dental Veneers. A veneer is a thin shell applied on the front of the teeth to make teeth appear brighter and fix chipped or crooked teeth as well.
Dental Implants. A dental implant offers a stable support to a replacement tooth or teeth. Once successfully attached, the implant will allow the replacement teeth to function like natural teeth.
