Did you know that our team could recommend full mouth reconstruction if your teeth have received extensive damage? Full mouth reconstruction includes a number of plans designed to improve the function and appearance of your teeth. So, how can you tell if you’re a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction?
Would you be surprised to learn that many people could actually be candidates for this treatment? Of course, while our team will do everything possible to keep your teeth healthy and strong, there may be times when it’s important for you to consider a few restorations, which can be important parts of full mouth reconstruction. Aside from returning your teeth to their ideal functionality, it can also protect you from tooth decay.
An individual with extremely worn teeth is another good candidate for full mouth reconstruction. If they’re cared for well, your teeth can last your lifetime—but if you don’t care for your teeth well, or suffer from an issue like bruxism, your teeth could wear down much faster. Individuals with enamel erosion or acid reflux can also experience worn teeth.
Individuals who have TMJ (or temporomandibular joint disorder) could also benefit from full mouth reconstruction. TMJ can affect your bite and wear your teeth down. If orthodontic work isn’t enough to address this issue, full mouth reconstruction is another option you can consider.
