FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
Full-mouth reconstruction, full-mouth rehabilitation, and full-mouth restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws simultaneously. Your prosthodontist, who has years of experience working with the materials and procedures related to full mouth reconstruction, will develop a plan that addresses all your needs and will leave you with a perfect smile, ideal bite, and optimal function. This is a complex process that only should be done by a prosthodontist and may require several specialists working as a team. This will be all directed and overseen by Dr.Steier in our Steier Dental & Implant Prothosdonitst office. We guide our patients through the process each step of the way.
You may be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction if:
• Your teeth have been lost due to decay or trauma
• Your teeth have been injured or fractured
• Your teeth have become severely worn because of long-term acid erosion (from foods, beverages, or acid reflux)
• You have ongoing jaw, muscle, or headache pain related to your bite
The extent of your reconstruction will depend on the condition of your teeth. Your prosthodontist may recommend crowns, bridges, veneers, or dental implants to restore your smile to its best possible condition. He or she will also address the state of your gum tissue, as the health of your gums may impact the type of restorations you receive.
