Address Systemic Problems
One of the most important things to understand about full mouth reconstruction is it’s an attempt to address some of the underlying problems that are damaging multiple teeth in your mouth at once. A common and significant concern is temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ or TMD). With TMJ, you might have a bite imbalance that causes you to clench and grind your teeth. This can lead to multiple teeth wearing down, chipping, or fracturing at once. The problem with TMJ is that if we don’t address it, your new restorations will suffer the same fate as your natural teeth: destruction.
Full mouth reconstruction lets us restore the balance in your jaw system. Instead of repairing teeth one at a time, which can’t adjust your bite, we can repair all your teeth at once to restore your jaw to a healthy, comfortable position.
This not only protects your restored teeth from future damage, but it can also reduce or eliminate TMJ symptoms like jaw pain, headaches, ringing in your ears, and more.
