Need to Restore Your Dental Health? A Full Mouth Reconstruction Often Includes Cosmetic Work

full mouth reconstruction Mountain View, CA

Full mouth reconstruction can be used to restore the function of teeth for a variety of dental issues. While the main purpose of the procedure is to restore the function of a patient's teeth, it also provides cosmetic benefits.

Issues that are often targeted during full mouth reconstruction include broken and fractured teeth, loose or missing teeth and teeth worn down due to tooth decay or teeth grinding. Gum disease or a bad bite may also be addressed.

What to expect during full mouth reconstruction

The process of full mouth reconstruction starts with a dental appointment. The dentist will perform a visual examination of the patient's teeth, looking for signs of damage. Imaging such as X-rays is used to get a clearer picture of what is going on underneath the gums.

Depending on the dentist's findings and the patient's medical history, the dentist will recommend appropriate treatments. No two full mouth reconstruction cases are identical. Each patient gets a customized treatment plan that targets all the dental problems they have. Here are some of the treatments a dentist might perform while reconstructing a patient's mouth:

  • Composite bonding: This procedure is performed using a composite resin. It can be used to fix a wide range of oral issues such as chipped teeth, damage done by tooth decay, stains, discoloration and gaps between teeth. Fixing a damaged tooth with composite resin is one of the most affordable ways to straighten teeth.
  • Dental crowns: These are versatile oral restorations that are used for restorative and cosmetic purposes. A crown restores the functionality of a damaged tooth, and it protects it from bite forces and irritants in the mouth like acids and oral bacteria. Issues crowns can be used to fix include teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay or badly damaged teeth.
  • Dental veneers: These are thin shells that are used to mask imperfections on a person's teeth. They are cemented to the front part of the tooth and they can be used to instantly improve the appearance of a person's smile. Veneers are often made out of porcelain, which is resistant to most types of stains.
  • Dentures: Dentures are the most economical option available to people who have lost most of their teeth. These restorations are held in place via suction, adhesives or implants, and they restore the function of the patient's lost teeth.
  • Implants: Implants are used to replace missing teeth and their roots. During the treatment, the dentist inserts a screw or rod into the patient's jaw. The implant is given up to six months to fuse with bone tissues around it. Once osseointegration is complete, the implant is fitted with a crown or some other oral restoration.
