We Can Complete a Full Mouth Reconstruction if You Have Suffered Major Dental Trauma

Full Mouth ReconstructionIf you need a full mouth reconstruction, McCarthy Dentistry can help. Most people will never have the need for this level of intervention. However, if you have severe dental damage due to a car accident, workplace injury, or sports injury, it is entirely possible to need more than a simple restoration. In this case, something like a dental crown will not be enough to restore your mouth to full functionality and appearance. This is where a full mouth reconstruction becomes useful.

What is involved in a full mouth reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is entirely dependent upon the extent of the damage that the patient suffers. Since dental trauma is unpredictable, each injury is unique from another. Even if two people damage their teeth in the same accident, both may damage different areas of the teeth. To determine what procedures the patient needs, we will first conduct a physical examination and then take X-rays.

This examination will show us all of the areas that we need to address. When creating a treatment plan, we will start by addressing any immediate needs of the patient. For example, if a patient has several damaged teeth, it is crucial to restore these teeth prior to trying to replace any lost teeth. This process will minimize the patient's discomfort.

Next, we will address any aesthetic challenges that the patient has as a result of the accident. Since multiple procedures are involved in a full mouth reconstruction, it may take several months for them all to be completed. It is important, however, to do things systematically so as not to further irritate the teeth and gums.

A full mouth reconstruction will address both the appearance and functionality of your smile.

When we are creating a plan, we will incorporate treatments that address both the way that the smile functions and how it appears. Many of the solutions we offer address both at the same time. For example, a dental crown can restore a cracked or chipped tooth since it is a cap that fully covers it. We can create the crowns using the tooth-colored material so that it also blends in and looks like a natural tooth.

In some cases, we will place a crown on damaged teeth and the ones next to it for an improved appearance. Another example of this is when we place dental implants. If a patient loses teeth in an accident, we will replace them as part of the full mouth reconstruction. Implants are the best way to do so because we replace both the tooth and the root. The implanted titanium post provides stimulation that the jawbone needs to prevent resorption. It serves as a sturdy anchor for a new, beautiful tooth to be attached to as well.

In this way, an implant improves both the appearance of your smile and strength of the jawbone at the same time. Whenever we are completing a reconstruction, we will suggest solutions that can achieve multiple goals by looking natural and giving you the full functionality of your mouth.
