What is a full mouth reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction restores and replaces damaged and missing teeth in your mouth. The team typically recommends this treatment for patients with a variety of dental problems. If you have a combination of missing teeth, broken teeth, misaligned teeth, gum disease, and more, a full mouth reconstruction can completely transform your smile.
Which dental concerns do a full mouth reconstruction address?
The team targets a number of dental concerns with a full mouth reconstruction, including:
- Missing teeth
- Broken teeth
- Teeth weakened by grinding
- Tooth decay
- Severe tooth discoloration
- Misaligned teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Jaw problems
- Receding gums
- Gums disease
If you have more than one of the above concerns, a full mouth reconstruction can address all of your problems, giving you the chance to design the smile you’ve always wanted.
Which treatments are involved in a full mouth reconstruction?
Some of the most common full mouth reconstruction treatments include:
Dental implants are tooth root replacements that stabilize your prosthetic teeth. Just like your natural tooth roots, implants hold your teeth in place so you can chew your favorite foods, speak, laugh, and smile without worrying that your prosthetic tooth replacement might shift.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover imperfections — extreme tooth discoloration, tooth decay, broken teeth, etc. — and protect weak teeth against further damage.
A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth by placing a prosthetic tooth (pontic) in the middle of the two teeth surrounding your missing tooth (abutment teeth). Much like an architectural bridge, the abutments support and hold your new tooth in place.
Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain restorations that bond to your teeth to cover up imperfections like severe tooth discoloration, a cracked tooth, tooth decay, gaps in your teeth, and more.
Dentures are artificial teeth that replace missing teeth. Full dentures can replace all the teeth in your mouth, while partial dentures are used when you only have some missing teeth.
Dr. Horvilleur uses the state-of-the-art Philips Zoom!® WhiteSpeed system to remove up to eight shades of tooth discoloration from your smile in less than an hour.
If imperfections in your smile are stopping you from feeling confident, a full mouth reconstruction can give you a beautiful, functional smile. Call Rene Horvilleur, DDS, or book an appointment online to learn more.
