Full mouth reconstruction is the use of many methods of dentistry to create the correct relationship between gums, bones, muscles, and teeth. The mouth is a complex machine; without a proper bite, chewing can become impaired, teeth can become worn, the jaw and neck can become sore, and even migraines can occur. Dental bonding, porcelain veneers and crowns, dental implants, and teeth whitening are all potential procedures used in a full mouth reconstruction. The result is a perfect smile!
Crowded teeth, poor dental care and the age of your teeth all can contribute to this condition. When your teeth are out of ideal alignment, enormously destructive forces begin to attack teeth. Every time your jaw closes, the damage continues. Tooth breakage and pain of the jaw, neck and head often ensue. In addressing and correcting these problems, not only do patients find relief, improved function and better oral health, but they are also delighted to achieve a beautiful smile line and more youthful appearance.
With full-mouth reconstruction, the entire mouth is beautified with a more comfortable bite and less tension in the jaw and neck.
