Did you know that our team could recommend full mouth reconstruction if your teeth are fairly damaged? In reality, full mouth reconstruction includes a number of plans designed to improve the function and appearance of your teeth. Still, how can you tell if you’re a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction?
If you need several restorations, you could be a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction. You may also be a good candidate for this treatment if your teeth have suffered some type of trauma. Of course, our team works hard to protect the health of your teeth and to preserve your natural teeth, but at times a dental restoration may be your best option. If you’re interested in full mouth reconstruction, you should expect to have restorations placed.
An individual with extremely worn teeth is another good candidate for full mouth reconstruction. If they’re cared for well, your teeth can last your lifetime—but if you don’t care for your teeth well, or suffer from an issue like bruxism, your teeth could wear down much faster. Individuals with enamel erosion or acid reflux can also experience worn teeth.
Individuals who have TMJ (or temporomandibular joint disorder) could also benefit from full mouth reconstruction. TMJ can affect your bite and wear your teeth down. If orthodontic work isn’t enough to address this issue, full mouth reconstruction is another option you can consider.
