Posted on 1/10/2019 by Doctor Haigney
The term full mouth reconstruction is a daunting term. It sounds like it is a big deal because it is. While the term can scare people, much of the fear comes from a lack of knowing what it involves.
Many may not realize that there are different options when it comes to full mouth reconstruction. Taking some time to learn what the options are can take the fear away,
Who Needs Full Mouth Reconstruction?
If a person has a cavity or if they have lost a tooth in an accident, they are not going to need full mouth reconstruction. The people who need this have dental problems throughout their mouth that need treatment together. The problems can come from trauma or from poor oral hygiene habits. People that need full mouth reconstruction need a plan that treats them both for function and for aesthetics.
They may have lost multiple teeth and they may have some larger fillings that are failing. A person may deal with bruxism or infections that are causing damage to their teeth and gums. The combination of these things creates the need for a comprehensive plan that will help restore the complete oral health of the individual.
What Can the Plan Include? The plan for a full mouth restoration can include a variety of options. Some of the things to consider include:
Bone and soft tissue grafts - These procedures can help restore the health of the gums and bones to allow for other procedures.
Orthodontics - These can help restore the shape of the teeth.
Implants - Implants can help replace teeth that have been lost.
Dentures - Full and partial dentures can help replace lost teeth.
The goal of full mouth reconstruction is repairing the damage that occurs in the mouth. It is not something that a person would want to go through in their lifetime. But it can help restore a person's oral health. For most people, getting a healthy smile back is worth a full mouth reconstruction.
