- Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
- Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
- Teeth that have worn due to tobacco and sopari chewing and bite collapse.
- Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding.
- Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite (occlusion).
A full mouth reconstruction typically combines a number of techniques to rebuild your bite and individual teeth, improve their functionality, and restore the esthetics of your smile. Some of the techniques we often use include:
- Removing hopeless or severely infected teeth
- Reestablishing your natural bite
- Dental implants
- Porcelain crowns
- Partials or dentures
- Braces, such as Six Month Smiles
The process is different for every patient.
If you think you need full mouth restoration or reconstruction, see dentist Dr Brijesh Patel MDS Uni First for a comprehensive examination.
The condition of your teeth will determine what restorative procedures may be needed, such as porcelain veneers or full-coverage crowns, inlays or onlays, bridges or implants restored with a crown. In particular, Dr Brijesh Patel MDS Uni First will make note of any cavities and decay, tooth wear, cracks, short/long teeth, root canal issues and any tooth movement.
Periodontal (gum) tissues:
If your gums are not healthy, you will most likely need scaling and root planing to treat periodontal disease. You may require more intensive treatments to ensure that your newly reconstructed teeth will have a solid foundation. Dr Brijesh Patel MDS Uni First will look for deep pockets, excessive or insufficient gum tissue, periodontal disease.
Temporomandibular joints, jaw muscles and occlusion:
A stable bite – one in which you are not in pain when you close your mouth or chew and one that does not cause wear or destruction of your teeth – is important to your overall oral health. Occlusal changes need to be taken into consideration.
The color, shape, size and proportion of your teeth, and how they appear in relation to your gums, lips, mouth, side profile and face, are also important factors in full mouth reconstruction treatment.
