Full Mouth Restoration with Dental Implants
Full mouth restoration, full mouth rehabilitation and full mouth reconstruction are phrases being used interchangeably today to describe a dental procedure for restoring or rebuilding teeth in the lower and upper jaws all at the same time. The restoration involves restorative and general processes including but not limited to veneers, bridges, crowns and more.
Full mouth reconstruction may be required when teeth are lost due to trauma or decay, and also when teeth have been worn out or eroded due to poor habits. And if you’re suffering from jaw muscle pain, you will also benefit from this dental procedure.
Dr. Afzali will examine your mouth to determine the ideal treatment plan. Regardless of the procedure used, it will likely require multiple visits and phases to complete the process. However, any of the following may be included:
- Periodontal care and prophylactic teeth cleaning
- Crown lengthening may be performed as well to expose sound and healthy tooth structure for bridges or crowns
- If your jaw needs to be repositioned, orthognathic surgery may be performed
- If you require harmony and balance in your smile, gum tissue contouring may be done
- During the placement of veneers, bridges or crowns, reduction of the natural structure of your teeth may be performed
- Just like with single and multiple teeth replacements, temporary restorations may be used so you will get used to the feeling
- Permanent restorations like bridges, inlays/onlays, veneers and crowns are done, usually made of ceramic or ceramic and another material
- To set your teeth in the proper location following the reconstruction, orthodontics (braces) may be used
If you have missing teeth, implant restoration and placement procedures may be needed, and if your teeth need to be stabilized, grafting of bone or soft tissue will be in order.
A detailed examination will be performed to determine the nature of your problem and which of the treatment options mentioned are the most ideal. Aside from your teeth, your gum tissues will also be looked into and an assessment of your temporomandibular joints and the muscles in your mouth will be taken as well.
Full mouth restoration can have long lasting results and is safe and painless. You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Afzali here at Lifetime Dental by calling (909) 483-0812.
