Full Mouth Reconstruction Q & A
What is a full mouth reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction either rebuilds, restores, or replaces all or most of the teeth in your mouth. The BMW Dental team combines a number of cosmetic and restorative treatments to improve both the function and appearance of your smile. This comprehensive restoration is best suited for patients who have a wide range of dental problems.
Why would I need a full mouth reconstruction?
There are many reasons why the BMW Dental team may recommend a full mouth reconstruction to restore your teeth:
A car accident or sports injury often leaves patients with a number of serious dental concerns, such as chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and missing teeth.
Depending on the severity of your injuries, the team can repair your teeth with a combination of treatments, including crowns, bridges, dental implants, or bonding.
Whether you have a tooth infection, cavities, gum disease, or a combination of these serious dental concerns, the BMW Dental team has the right treatments to restore your oral health.
From fillings and root canal therapy to scaling and root planing, there are plenty of restorative treatments to suit your smile.
Even if you regularly brush and floss, normal wear-and-tear can take a toll on your teeth. Teeth grinding wears down your teeth over time, while acidic foods and beverages can destroy your enamel.
A full mouth reconstruction helps address all these issues, so you can feel confident in your smile once again.
Which dental treatments are used in a full mouth reconstruction?
The most common treatments used in a full mouth reconstruction are:
A dental crown is a cap-shaped restoration that fits over your damaged tooth to restore its size, shape, and function. Crowns, which can be made out of metals, porcelain, ceramic, or zirconia, also protect weak teeth from further damage.
A dental bridge replaces missing teeth in your mouth. For a traditional bridge, the BMW Dental team fits the two teeth on either side of your missing tooth for dental crowns and connects them to your new false tooth in the middle.
Dental implants are tooth root replacements shaped like small titanium posts. The team inserts them directly into your gums and jawbone to provide durable stability for your new prosthetic teeth.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth and can last a lifetime when cared for properly.
Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain restorations that cover imperfections in your smile, such as a chipped tooth, a cracked tooth, or severe tooth discoloration. They are custom-made for you and are completely stain-resistant.
Root canal therapy
A root canal saves an infected tooth that’s in danger of being extracted. The BMW Dental team uses root canal therapy to remove the soft pulp in the center of your tooth, which completely eliminates the infection.
If you have more than one dental problem, a full mouth reconstruction may be the right solution for you. Call BMW Dental, or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
