Full Mouth Restorations
It’s the process of rehabilitating and simultaneously restoring all the teeth in the upper and lower jaws to reinstate the function and appearance of your smile. It refers to the procedures designed to replace missing teeth, repair damaged teeth, correct improperly seated jaw joints, faulty bites, address jawbone and gum damage and replace worn-out dental work that left untouched can damage your oral health.
Full mouth restorations can include any combination of the following restorative dental treatments:
Restorative dental treatments: dental crowns, bridges, fillings, inlays, and onlays
Implant dentistry: dental implants to replace missing teeth, replicating them from root to crown
Cosmetic dentistry: veneers, teeth whitening, dental bonding
Bruxism treatments: therapy to resolve teeth grinding and associated symptoms
Orthodontics: Invisalign®, traditional metal braces, spacers, expanders, and retainers
Periodontal treatments: scaling, root planning, and periodontal surgery
Neuromuscular dentistry/TMD treatment: correction of problems involving the temporomandibular joints (jaw) and bite
The relationship between the upper, lower teeth and the jaw joints are referred to as occlusion of bite. The healthy functioning of the human mouth depends on all these working together in harmony. When these components don't work in balance, your oral health becomes compromised. A patient who has multiple oral health problems affecting most or all of the teeth and supporting tissues in the mouth will almost certainly be a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction rather than "fixing" individual teeth.
In many cases, patients can experience advantages that they never associated with dentistry. For example, by correcting the jaw from sagging due to a collapsed bite, a full mouth reconstruction can improve the size of the breathing airway, which in turn helps patients sleep better, relieves jaw joint pain and helps patients feel more energetic.
Do I need a "complete makeover"?
Synergy between esthetics and function, proper assessment to develop the right diagnosis, dimensional equilibrium between upper and lower jaws including not only teeth but muscle, condyle, and disk (articulation) are the major factors in restoring natural teeth to their once essential role in oral health. Form and function are interdependent.
Dental Land puts this knowledge into practice. Comprehensive examination and evaluation are accomplished by the prosthodontist, periodontist, endodontist, oral surgeon andlaboratory technician.
Our Restorative team accomplishes comprehensive restorative dentistry with both success and predictability. To provide this comprehensive treatment for a patient, there must be a consensual philosophy and a process of communication allowing the specialists, staff and laboratory to achieve ultimate success. The patient is an important part of this team effort. At Dental Land the patient is treated not the tooth. Contact our international patient coordinator for a free consultation.
