Full mouth reconstruction, rehabilitation and restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.
A full mouth reconstruction is more of restorative dentistry option for patients with complex dental needs. It is focused on the combination of treatment of underlying functional as well as disease issues.
Full mouth reconstruction or rehabilitation is a series of procedures that are designed to completely rebuild and restore your smile, and with it your confidence. Various factors such as trauma to the teeth or gums, severe decay and advanced periodontal disease can all result in the need for a full mouth reconstruction.
The goal is to effectively deal with functional problems and issues that already significantly interfere with the overall health of the teeth, gums, and mouth and create a smile that is fully functional, completely healthy and clearly attractive. Throughout the past 31 years Dr. Smith has restored beautiful smiles to his patients from Juno Beach, Florida. He can help you decide if a full mouth reconstruction is right for you.
Dr. Smith will perform a thorough evaluation of the condition of the following:
GUMS - If your gums are not taken care of properly, you can suffer from periodontal disease, which can cause loose teeth, swollen gums, bleeding as well as bad breath. Dr. Smith can utilize methods to restore gums through techniques such as tissue restoration which helps promote bone growth and pocket elimination surgery to help prevent tooth loss.
TEETH - What restorative procedures will be used and the options available is based on the condition of your teeth. You may suffer from “time” and the effects of wear and tear, trauma, crowded teeth and/or poor dental care. The need to address and correct these issues and to prevent additional dental problems from occurring can give you relief as well as improved function and oral health.
JAW & BITE - You may have pain when you chew or close your mouth if you suffer from a bad bite or malocclusion, which can cause wear or destruction of your teeth. Dr. Smith may employ the use of braces to correct occlusion before additional restorative procedures are performed.
