Full Mouth Reconstruction in New Port Richey, Fl
Are you suffering from advanced dental disorders, like tooth loss, periodontal disease, and severe tooth decay? You might benefit from a full mouth reconstruction, or what is also known as a full mouth rehabilitation.
Full mouth reconstructions use a combination of treatments to fully restore all of the teeth in the bottom and top jaws. During a full mouth reconstruction at Cadle Cosmetic Dentistry, we will use both general and restorative treatments to heal your smile.
The most common reasons why we might recommend full mouth rehabilitation, include:
Teeth that are injured or fractured
Teeth that have become lost from decay or trauma
Teeth that are severely worn out from chronic acid erosion or teeth grinding
Chronic pain from jaw misalignments, like headaches or muscle pain
Not only do the above issues cause excessive pain, making it hard to chew and speak properly, but they can also be aesthetically devastating.
About Full Mouth Reconstruction
Before beginning a full mouth reconstruction, we will need to perform a comprehensive examination of your dental health. During this time, we will examine the condition of your teeth and smile and devise a treatment plan. Some factors we will look at in determining your treatment, include:
The condition of your teeth: Depending on the wear on your teeth, we might recommend a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental treatments. Patients with tooth decay will benefit from dental veneers or composite bonding to restore the color and shape of the teeth.
Patients with advanced tooth decay and tooth loss will benefit more from dental crowns, dental implants, or dental bridges. Dental crowns will be recommended for teeth with root canal infections or cracks, while dental implants can fill in the gap from lost teeth. We will be able to tailor the size, color, and shape of your restorative treatments to make your smile beautiful and natural looking.
The condition of your gums: Do your gums bleed every time you floss? You most likely have gum disease. During
youconsultation, we will assess your gum health, making sure that we don’t move forward with more advanced treatments,until your gums are healthy enough to serve as a solid foundation. If you have advanced gum disease, we will recommend root scaling and planing, or gum grafts.
The condition of your jaw and bite: In order to maintain a healthy smile, your lower and upper jaw will need to close together in a healthy fashion. Patients with malocclusions or TMJ disorder will need to address these issues before moving forward with restorations. An abnormal bite can cause premature wear on your teeth and destroy your oral health and restorations. In some cases, we might recommend an orthodontic treatment or night guard for patients with TMJ and teeth grinding. Full mouth reconstructions can completely transform the profile of your jaw and bite, giving your entire face a more beautiful appearance.
The aesthetic of you smile: As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cadle will want you to achieve your smile goals by feeling happy with the color, shape, and size of your teeth. We will design a treatment plan that tackles all of your aesthetic
concerns,so that the end result of your treatment is a beautiful, natural lookingsmile.
During your initial consultation, we will most likely need to take x-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth and bite. We will also assess old dental work, like cavity fillings, crowns, and veneers, making sure they don’t need replacement before moving forward with your treatment. If you need specialty care, we might recommend you to a periodontist (for gum health), oral surgeon, or orthodontist.
The Difference Between a Smile Makeover and Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstructions and smile makeovers are similar, in that they both use a variety of treatments to transform your smile. However, they are subtly different in that smile makeovers are an elective cosmetic treatment, while full mouth reconstructions are necessary for restoring the function of your smile. In some cases, smile makeovers are done in tandem with the reconstruction treatments incorporated to improve the long-term success of your smile makeover treatments.
