Full Mouth Restoration
Full mouth restoration, full mouth rehabilitation and full mouth reconstruction are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring everyone of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.
The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:
- Excessive amounts of teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
- Multiple Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
- 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)
Our Full Mouth Restoration Process
If you are tired of your loose dentures, or are tired of your poor dentition and think you need full mouth restoration or reconstruction, we will provide a comprehensive oral examination. During your exam Dr. De Andrade will examine your mouth to determine the extent of the issues at hand that are currently causing you pain or discomfort. From our initial oral exam we will then discuss the treatment options that we can perform in order to correct your oral health issues.
Once we have obtained all information relevant to your case, we will then develop a comprehensive, step-by-step treatment plan to correct all of the problems in your mouth and complete your full mouth reconstruction. We take pride in making sure you understand all the procedures described to you prior to any treatment. It is our goal at Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants to inform our patients as much as possible prior to any work. We want to make sure you understand the risks and benefits of the recommended procedures and treatments.
Signs of other serious problems
Dr De Andrade will determine what procedures are needed for your specific situation. Other treatments may also be required, so he will discuss all possible procedures that might be required for you and help you to understand why you may need them. We work with a network of highly skilled restorative dentists and prosthodontists. We will work in conjunction with any one of these highly skilled professionals to achieve your desired outcome. A beautiful smile!
Implants Lasting a Lifetime
Our full mouth restoration dental implants are placed directly into the bone, that bone is then re-inforced and protected. Because our Dental implants are then built into your gum line this will also prevent or reduce further loss of bone. With proper oral hygiene as part of your daily habits, and frequent visits to your dentist for cleanings, these implants can last you a lifetime. With no worries of having to take them out, clean them separately, not wearing them during activities. This is why the dental implants are far superior to dentures.
