If you need dental work, we recommend scheduling an appointment soon. Unfortunately, sometimes a routine treatment isn’t enough for some patient’s problems. In fact, some patients need a full mouth reconstruction.

In fact, full mouth reconstruction—which is essentially a custom treatment plan designed to rebuild smiles— can offer both cosmetic and functional benefits. For example, a dentist may decide that a patient needs to be treated for gum disease such as gingivitis, have a missing tooth replaced, and need a crown. Fortunately, whatever your needs, your dentist will be able to restore the function of your smile while maintaining—or even enhancing—your natural appearance.

Of course, there are a number of benefits that can come from full mouth reconstruction. For example, if you have missing or fractured teeth, you may find yourself more susceptible to gum disease. If you have gum disease, you’re more likely to have bad breath, to have your other teeth shift, or to experience cardiovascular problems. You may also be more likely to have gum disease or to need a root canal. In essence, without caring for your smile, you’ll likely have more problems with your teeth.

Also, would you be surprised to learn that you could have better breath and better sleep after this treatment? If your teeth are even and close together, they will be easier to clean which will lead to better breath. Similarly, if you are constantly in pain, you will probably struggle to sleep. As time goes on, several night’s with less-than-ideal sleep can compound and lead to other problems.  Again, your dentist can help you resolve these problems.

Aside from the more common benefits of full mouth reconstruction, many patients are able to enjoy a few unexpected benefits. For example, did you know that some people find eating embarrassing because their jaw makes a clicking sound when they chew? Similarly, jaw problems can make chewing painful. Fortunately, both of these issues can be resolved as part of a full mouth reconstruction.
