What is a Full Mouth Restoration and When Should You Consider It?
It might be missing teeth. Or it could be a combination of dental problems that starts with tooth loss, trauma, or tooth damage.
One dental problem can “domino” into another. That’s why it’s a good idea to “push-pause” and consider your restorative and cosmetic dentistry options before your problems worsen.
A full mouth restoration or reconstruction improves your dental health and transforms your appearance. It’s the perfect combination of dentistry to restore your teeth and gums to their proper function.
Eliminate the “domino effect”
Full mouth reconstruction uses restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. The combined treatments restore how your teeth look along with their function.
A single broken or damaged tooth can set in motion a domino-like effect in your mouth. Bite issues, difficulty chewing, tooth wear, and neck and jaw pain can result.
It starts with common neglect or a dental trauma. A full mouth restoration provides you options if you’re experiencing a variety of dental issues including:
- Broken, chipped, or worn teeth
- Missing teeth
- Chronic jaw pain or a clicking sound in you jaw joint
- Neck or head pain
Any of these is a good reason to ask about a combination of dental procedures to give you relief and restore your oral health and function.
