Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
At the cosmetic and restorative dentistry practice of Bruce E. Treiber, D.D.S., we put the safety, comfort, and satisfaction of our patients above all else. We want our patients to feel completely at ease from the moment they set foot into our office, as though they have entered a stress-free zone where their anxiety is allowed simply to melt away. It is hard for a person to feel that way, of course, if he or she feels that he or she is being judged about the condition of his or her mouth. This is why, no matter how extensively damaged your teeth and gums may be, you will never be made to feel as though you are being reprimanded for coming to the dentist. The past is the past. We are more concerned with being your partners in good dental health for the years ahead.
Many patients who come to us with years’ worth of oral health problems are excellent candidates for full mouth reconstruction. At our practice in Canton, full mouth reconstruction candidates have the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Treiber and discuss their treatment goals and options. Dr. Treiber has the experience, skill, and personal touch to create treatment plans that are fully customized to the unique needs of each individual patient. If you choose to undergo full mouth reconstruction at our practice, you will emerge with a healthy, vibrant smile that perfectly reflects your personality.
What is full mouth reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is not a procedure, as such, but rather a treatment plan that comprises two or more restorative and reconstructive dentistry treatments. The number and types of treatments depend on the damage present in the mouth and the scope of work that needs to be done. The goal of every full mouth reconstruction plan is to return the entire mouth - the teeth, the gums, and the upper and lower jaws - to its fully functional, optimally healthy state, or as close to that state as is possible.
Who is a candidate for full mouth reconstruction?
Unlike many cosmetic dentistry procedures, nearly every patient is a suitable candidate for full mouth reconstruction. This is because the very point of treatment is to address extensive, often complex damage to the mouth, the sort that might preclude a patient from undergoing cosmetic procedures. Of course, patients must be in good enough general health to undergo some of the procedures commonly performed as part of full mouth reconstruction, especially oral surgery procedures.
Good candidates for full mouth reconstruction include patients who suffer from any or all of the following:
- Missing teeth
- Gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis)
- Tooth decay
- Dental caries (cavities)
- Missing teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Malocclusion (faulty bites)
- Jaw problems (including temporomandibular joint disorder)
- Gum recession
- Jaw bone degradation
- Chipped, cracked, or badly discolored teeth
It is important that patients understand that full mouth reconstruction may require months or even years of treatment, which can be expensive and time consuming. However, the results of treatment will more than justify the investment.
