If you have a number of dental and oral health issues that are keeping you from having a smile that looks and feels as good as you would like to, a full mouth reconstruction can be an excellent solution. Here at Kane & Kerper Dentistry in Oxnard, we have helped many patients achieve the bright and beautiful smile they’ve wanted with a full mouth reconstruction.
What will my full mouth reconstruction fix?
A full mouth reconstruction is personalized for each patient and can be used to fix a number of dental and oral health problems, including:
- Teeth that have fallen out
- Broken teeth
- Teeth damaged due to acid erosion
- Bite issues that are causing headaches, jaw pain, and TMJ/TMD
- Teeth are worn down due to bruxism
- Cosmetic dentistry issues
How will the reconstruction be completed?
The first step in a full mouth reconstruction is a full examination of your teeth, jaw, and gums. We may also take digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth and jaws. These will be used to create a model that will show us every aspect of your bite. This will allow us to recommend any treatments that may be necessary. Our dentists will also consider the health of your gums, as well as the shade and shape of your teeth and your overall facial structure. This will ensure that your restorations have an overall pleasing effect on your appearance.
What treatments will be involved in the reconstruction process?
The treatments involved in your reconstruction plan will depend on the specific dental issues that you and your dentist choose to address. We customize each full mouth reconstruction plan to the individual patient. Some common procedures include:
- Professional cleaning and whitening
- Periodontal treatment and contouring
- Dental implants
- Crown lengthening
- Dental veneers, or Lumineers
If you have issues with your jaw positioning, you may need orthognathic surgery to correct it. You may also receive bone or soft tissue grafts for gum and bone loss. Your dentist will discuss each treatment with you before beginning the full mouth reconstruction process.
