Full Mouth Reconstruction
Smile Makeover Procedures Include:
Since every case is unique, only qualified dental professionals can determine exactly which procedures you will need for full mouth reconstruction. Procedures may include:
A full mouth reconstruction may be spurred by injury, decay, or prolonged gum disease. The damage sustained must be repaired and the structures rebuilt in order to restore your appearance and your oral health. Lost teeth may be replaced with dental implants or implant supported dentures. If you need full mouth dental implants contact our office in Glendale, AZ to schedule your appointment with Dr. Michael Allard. Our implant dentistry expert can help you determine whether you are a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction, which is based largely upon the following criteria:
|The health of your teeth and tooth structures
|The health of your gums
|Misalignment of the teeth and jaw
The Health of Your Teeth and Tooth Structures
Dr. Allard will examine your teeth to discover any damage to the structures, including cavities, fractures, or wear. Fillings, crowns, or veneers may be necessary. If you have missing or loose teeth, Dr. Allard may recommend dental implants or implant supported dentures to restore the appearance and function of your smile.
The Health of Your Gums
Gum health is crucial to the health of your teeth and bone. As a bacterial infection of the gum tissue, gum disease slowly destroys the connective fibers and bone that hold your teeth in place. If you suffer from gum disease, periodontal therapy may be recommended before any replacement treatments, such as implant supported dentures, can be performed.
Misalignment of the Teeth and Jaw
Dr. Allard will assess your bite and the health of your jaw joints. A misaligned bite can cause unnecessary wear to the teeth and missing teeth can cause the surrounding teeth to shift out of position. Misalignment may also result in symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). The position of your jaw has a significant effect upon facial shape, as does the absence of teeth. With slight movement of the jaw and the addition of implant supported dentures, facial appearance may be greatly improved.
Full mouth reconstruction provides a return to function and appearance for those suffering from oral damage, decay, disease, or missing teeth. For your personalized consultation contact Dr. Allard in Glendale, AZ today.
