Who Can Benefit from Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
What is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Full-Mouth Reconstruction (also called rehabilitation) is an option for you if you suffer from gum disease, tooth decay, tooth loss or any other oral health problem. Rehabilitation is an in-depth procedure that targets a variety of dental health problems that endanger your overall health. Since your mouth is different from everyone else’s, we must craft a treatment plan specifically for you. Dr. Crumpton will discuss your treatment options with you to determine how eligible you are for certain restorative and cosmetic procedures.
What are the Benefits of Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Full-mouth reconstruction will provide you with a stronger and more resilient dental structure, boost your confidence and self-esteem, and improve your overall oral health and wellbeing.
If part of your mouth is not working as it should, it can cause problems elsewhere in the body. For example, tooth decay can cause tooth loss if untreated, and periodontitis increases one’s risk for a variety of health complications, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, cardiovascular disease, Type II Diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and some forms of cancer.
Full-mouth reconstruction combats these problems. By removing plaque, we can prevent future decay and damage to your teeth and avoid the need for more elaborate treatments later on. Rehabilitation treatment will help prevent periodontal disease as well.
What Methods are used for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
The more common methods for full-mouth reconstructions include fillings, implants, braces, Invisalign, implant-supported bridges or dentures, porcelain veneers, dental bridges, and crowns. We also utilize tooth whitening, root canal therapy, scaling and root planing, gum and bone grafting, gum contouring, and dental bonding. During your free consultation, we will advise you on which procedures will work best for you given your preferences and dental health.
Who Qualifies for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
The best candidates for full-mouth restoration are those who have had a tooth removed recently. Due to the holistic nature of this style of treatment, Dr. Crumpton will thoroughly inform you at each step. Even if you aren’t a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction at first, we can treat your current conditions and remove any obstacles that stand in the way of restoring your smile. For instance, if he determines that dental implants are the best option to provide you with new teeth, you may need to undergo a preliminary procedure such as a soft tissue augmentation or a bone graft.
Since this method of treatment focuses on returning your oral health to optimum levels in all areas, we will work to eradicate gum disease and tooth decay, in addition to replacing and restoring lost or damaged teeth. Patients suffer from soreness and distress if they have misaligned jaws and problems with their temporomandibular joints (TMJ) so we will deal with this as well. If you suffer from tooth loss, pain in your teeth, jawbone loss, discoloration on the surface of your teeth, or bleeding gums, you should consider full-mouth reconstruction.
