At Health Plus Dental, patients are recommended to have a full mouth and bite restoration when simple fillings or an individual crown cannot suffice the requirement.
In certain situations like poor bite, aggressive tooth wear, accidents to the mouth or advanced decay, it becomes necessary for the whole mouth to be redone in what is called a full mouth reconstruction.
The teeth, gums, jaw muscles, and jaw joints are part of a system referred to as the Masticatory system and all parts of this system interact with each other. Excessive mechanical stress may occur from outside traumas, but the common reason is misfit of the upper and lower teeth. This condition is called a bite problem.
The first step in this procedure is to alleviate the cause of the mechanical stress. Doing this can stop further structural damage & eliminate pain. Then the damaged structures are repaired by altering the bite, restoration of teeth or TMJ/TMD surgery.
Full mouth restoration involves restoring the teeth, bite, muscles and self-esteem back to a natural looking and youthful condition.
Using the latest technology with an artistic eye, full mouth restoration may be the answer to many problems, such as broken-down teeth or fillings, sore jaw muscles, and recurring headaches. Opening a patient’s bite with full mouth restoration often gives the same esthetic results as a face-lift.
