Full mouth reconstruction is interesting process where the patient would come to me and all their teeth have a certain amount of tooth wear where you need to do crowns on them or veneers on them. So, sometimes it could be a mixture of crowns or veneers, or it could be crowns on all teeth where you can restore their functionality, that you can increase the space between the teeth where it should be and have the vertical dimension or the height has reduced, which affects your muscles and the tone of your face. So, full mouth reconstruction is a very good option for patients who have severe tooth wear and want a quick fix and want to restore their function in a short period of time.
Eat Anything You Like After a Full-Mouth Rehabilitation
Recent surveys show that virtually all Americans (99.7 percent) believe that having a smile is an important social asset. Along with showing others a beautiful smile, we all want to be able to chew our food comfortably. So today it’s more important than ever to have a full set of beautiful and functional teeth.
Dr. Zia will work hand in hand with you to develop a plan to restore your teeth. Most often, such a plan will include the use of dental implants. Some options are listed below:
- All-on-4 Dental Implants – Using a minimal number of dental implants – usually four or six – Dr. Zia can anchor an entire arch of fixed teeth that never need removal for cleaning and care. Just brush and floss like you normally would, and your new teeth will give you years of service.
- Implant-Retained Dentures – We’ll anchor your dentures to a set of implants using a snap-and-ball system. They’ll stay put until you take them out for cleaning and care.
- Implant-Supported Dentures – For the ultimate dentures experience, we can securely attach your replacement teeth to a metal bar that is screwed into implants. These dentures are only removed by your dentist and can be brushed like natural teeth.
- Conventional Dentures – If you’d prefer standard dentures without implants, we’ll fit you with full arches of dentures that you remove every day for cleaning.
You don’t need to be nervous about getting implants. You’ll have two options for soothing sedation: laughing gas or an oral sedative.
