If you have multiple dental issues and don’t know where to begin, a full mouth reconstruction in Loxahatchee, FL might be your best option.
Your full mouth reconstruction dentist takes into account the health and appearance of your gums and teeth, paying close attention to how these issues affect your overall health—current issues and future health risks.
Candidates for full mouth reconstruction have all or most of the following issues:
- Lost teeth due to decay, disease, or trauma
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Eroded enamel
- Jaw and headache pain
What to Expect
Full mouth reconstruction is different for everyone, and the reconstruction approach depends on your unique dental issues.
The dentist will evaluate you for periodontal disease, which causes tooth loss and can lead to other potentially dangerous health complications, including an increased risk of:
- Heart attack
- Systemic infection
The dentist utilizes several methods to treat this complication based on your unique health profile.
Treatment for periodontal disease may include:
- Root planing
The dentist wants to treat your periodontal disease, but also wants to ensure that the bones in your jaw are healthy and strong enough to support your full mouth reconstruction.
Other areas the dentist will consider include:
- The health of your teeth
- The angle of your jaw or bite, which can cause headaches when not aligned
- The color of your teeth
Following this comprehensive examination, your dentist will come up with a full mouth reconstruction plan that saves your smile, restores your oral health, and reduces your risk for future health issues.
Full mouth reconstruction may include:
- Periodontal treatments
- Deep cleaning
- Jaw repositioning surgery
- Gum contouring
- Crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, or bridges.
Why Full Mouth Reconstruction Is Important
Full mouth reconstruction improves your smile and gives you confidence, but this procedure also helps save your existing teeth and significantly lowers your risk of systemic health complications due to poor oral health.
