One of the most wonderful parts of dentistry is the ability to change. Although, it has many advantages for the patient but for the providers it is a challenge to understand the needs of the patient and act accordingly. Full mouth rehabilitation, restoration and reconstruction are used interchangeably in order to describe the technique of reconstruction for all the teeth in your mouth. This process involves procedures like crowns, implants, bridges and dental veneers and can be incorporated by dental specialists like periodontists who have specialization in gum related problems, orthodontists who specialize in tooth movements and positions and periodontists who specialize in tooth pulp.
You may need full mouth reconstruction because of the following reasons:
- Loss of teeth due to tooth decay or any traumatic event
- Injury on teeth or fractured teeth
- Long term acid erosion that has resulted in worn out teeth as a result of excessive food and beverage consumption or tooth grinding
- Continuing complaints of muscle or jaw pain that requires occlusion
