|There are many different parts of a full mouth reconstruction. Like the name implies, a full mouth reconstruction involves replacing all the teeth in the mouth. The result from the procedure allows a person to smile and enjoy the things they want.
Without the procedure some people will struggle with eating and talking. The last step of this procedure is replacing the teeth in some ways, but there are other parts that are just as important.
The Different Parts of a Full Mouth ReconstructionA person that needs a full mouth reconstruction is missing many of their natural teeth. Because they are missing many teeth, they probably are dealing with a few different issues. If the reconstruction is not done properly, then anything that is done is more likely to fail.
The different parts of a full mouth construction can include removal of some teeth, treatments for periodontal and gum disease, root canal therapy and treatment for TMJ disorder. It can also include the addition of dentures, crowns, inlays, fillings and implants. It is important to make sure that the different parts are done in the right order to get the best results.
Where it Starts
Any full mouth reconstruction relies on creating the right base. That means taking care of any diseased teeth, removing broken, chipped or cracked teeth and dealing with any gum disease or periodontal disease.
That helps provide for the healthy base that is needed to replace the teeth. Another part of this process can include the rebuilding of the bone mass of the jaw. Missing teeth can speed up the loss of bone tissue, so it is important to rebuild that bone to support dentures, implants or whatever is chosen to replace the missing teeth.
Full mouth reconstruction is not a process to hurry through. The healthier the teeth and gums are, the easier it is to get the results you want. That means getting the smile that you deserve.
