If you want to improve your teeth’s beauty, function, and health all at once, full mouth reconstruction is a great treatment option.

Full mouth reconstruction is a custom combination of procedures selected precisely for you and designed to address all the dental problems you’re currently experiencing. Although it’s a significant commitment, there are many reasons why it might just be the best choice for your oral health. Here are just some reasons why full mouth reconstruction might be the best choice for you.

It Might Be the Only Way to Achieve Results

We don’t usually recommend full mouth reconstruction. When we do, it’s because it’s the only way to address the combination of oral health concerns facing your smile.

In many cases, you have multiple teeth that urgently need repair. Cracked, chipped, or worn, these teeth might be unhealthy and failing.

However, the situation may be that you currently only have one tooth in urgent need. For example, you might have a cracked tooth that needs a dental crown, possibly after a root canal. We might even decide it’s best to remove the tooth and replace it with a dental implant. However, you might also have several adjacent teeth with significant wear and will likely crack shortly. If you want to address the problems with your oral health, it only makes sense to restore all these teeth at once.

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.

Get Long-Lasting Results

A poorly placed dental crown may last only five years or so. One that’s expertly placed with well-balanced bite forces and properly matched with its neighbors might last decades.

Full mouth reconstruction lets us set your dental work up for success. This helps ensure you get longer-lasting results than you might get from piecemeal dental work on just one tooth at a time.

Get a Unified Smile Appearance

If you’ve had a lot of dental work done over the years, your smile likely has a disheveled appearance. Dental crowns placed over the years have aged differently so that they don’t match each other. Nor do they match the appearance of your natural teeth.

With a full mouth reconstruction, we can replace any old restorations that have aged poorly. We will also place crowns on damaged and discolored teeth. Because the new restorations are all placed at the same time and all of the same material, they will not only look matched now, they’ll age together to make sure you have a unified attractive smile for years to come.

Plus, full mouth reconstruction gives us the opportunity to redesign your smile. Although it’s not primarily a cosmetic dentistry procedure, we can use it to provide you with the smile of your dreams.

Achieve Your Best Oral Health

If you’ve lived for many years with poor oral health, you’ve experienced years of worrying about it. When is the next tooth problem going to crop up? How much is it going to cost? How much will it interfere with my life and my schedule?

A full mouth reconstruction lets you take care of all your imminent oral health problems. Your bite will be healthy. Your teeth will be healthy. You’ll have attractive teeth that function properly and don’t hurt. You’ll enjoy peace of mind over your oral health.
