Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full Mouth Reconstruction commonly refers to the restoration or rebuilding of all one's teeth in the upper and lower jaw. Full mouth reconstruction does not only apply with one who is completely edentulous (missing all teeth) and in need of full dentures. Full mouth reconstruction will allow the dentist to repair multiple problems in the mouth at one time. Patients do not need to worry since we will sit down with each patient and go over all of the details with that specific patient's procedure. With full mouth reconstruction, each patient will need a treatment that is slightly different than another. By customizing the treatment to each individual, we can help ensure that the patient is completely satisfied with the result. There are multiple reasons as to why a patient may need full mouth reconstruction, including trauma, infection and long-term wear. To learn more, schedule an appointment by calling 760-770-0236



Trauma

In many cases, the patient may have experienced a traumatic accident and be in need of repairing a chipped tooth, while also simultaneously replacing another tooth that fell out. Since accidents can happen at any time, it is difficult to prepare for the possibility of damaging more than one tooth. Through full mouth reconstruction, the dentist will be able to repair the mouth, while also repairing the appearance and functionality of a patient's teeth. If a patient experiences an accident that results in damage to the teeth, seeking an emergency dentist as soon as possible is a necessity. If a patient goes to a normal emergency room after damaging a tooth, the nurse will only be able to triage the wounds but not treat the condition. At SouthWest Dental we will find the best treatment for each individual and recommend options that help to repair the damage. Patients assume that the only option will be one that merely imitates the appearance of a natural tooth and that the patient will have to practice caution when eating for the rest of his or her life. In reality, we can provide possible treatments such as dental implants, dental bonding, dental crowns, dental veneers, dental bridges and more to help repair the appearance and functionality of the tooth. After a full mouth reconstruction at SouthWest Dental our patients will be able to smile confidently and eat what they like since our repairs are long-lasting and sturdy. There is no need for a patient to live with a cracked or damaged set of teeth.

Long-term wear

For some people, proper dental care is not a common part of daily life. When one chooses to not practice proper dental care, the teeth wear down more quickly as a result. Acid from certain foods, types of citrus, beverages, acid reflux, grinding and more are all causes for a patient to lose his or her teeth more quickly. At SouthWest Dental we can monitor the teeth at least once every six months and help patients remain healthy. For patients who experience these issues on a regular basis and have teeth that are wearing down, we can use full mouth reconstruction to address multiple issues.
