Full Mouth Reconstruction
When your mouth needs a major makeover, you may be a candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction. At New Look Dental we offer an invaluable professional partnership through every step of what is typically a complex, yet extremely rewarding process.
You may be a candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction if you experience:
- Tooth-erosion, tooth-shortening or fractures in your tooth enamel from habitual grinding or clenching (bruxism)
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Untreated tooth decay
- Mismatched past dentistry
You may also be a candidate if you’ve inherited certain genetic conditions which affect how your teeth develop. These conditions include Ectodermal Dysplasia, Ameliogenesis, and Dentinogenesis Imperfecta. These conditions may cause rapid wear, breakage and loss of teeth, but the good news is that our modern technologies now offer extensive restoration of the teeth as needed.
Full Mouth Reconstruction is a general restoration of the entire mouth that affects all teeth. The goal is to restore the health, function and beauty of the mouth.
The restoration treatments may consist of Onlays, Crowns, Bridges, Veneers, Dental implants, and/or modern Dentures. These not only can provide a more flattering smile, but can make chewing easier, more effective, and more comfortable for you. Depending on your specific needs, we may also recommend Orthodontics (bracers or aligners) for the best possible results.
We evaluate many related factors when deciding what steps are right for your restoration. At New Look Dental, we know from experience that well-informed patients smile more!
We begin with a thorough examination. If you will require Orthodontia prior to beginning Full Mouth Reconstruction, that will be considered a separate process, and will need to be completed first. There also may be other specialized services which are not included in the Full Mouth Reconstruction procedure. We’ll discuss this with you in detail, set goals, and plan the work to be done in clear phases so you always know what to expect.
Why should I consider a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Several factors may make this procedure an ideal option for you. One aspect is simply the reality of normal aging. Even the healthiest teeth experience some degree of normal wear as we live our increasingly long lives. And even the most superbly crafted dental work eventually shows signs of wear as well. This procedure may be a way to create a more youthful facial appearance if your jaw line seems shrunken as the result of the need for updated dental restoration.
What are some of the possible steps of a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Typically, a Full Mouth Reconstruction procedure may involve:
- A Root Canal. If this step is in fact required, it must be our first step. All other phases follow, in order to support the optimum health of your mouth.
- The removal of existing dental appliances currently in your mouth, including Dental Crowns, Porcelain Veneers, and outmoded silver or composite fillings.
- Treating and filling any areas of decay
- The seating of new Dental Crowns
- The placement of new Porcelain Veneers
You are unique, and so your particular dental restoration needs are personal, and completely unique to you. Dr. Kirakosian partners and consults with you through every phase of the planning and implementation, so that you always feel comfortable during the process, and will be pleased with the results.
