Nothing can be more painful and debilitating than having damaged teeth and bone due to an accident, genetics, or disease. The good news is that many treatments exist that can restore health and function to your mouth. When multiple treatments are needed to fix your smile, this is referred to as full mouth reconstruction. While designed to improve how your teeth function, this comprehensive treatment generally restores the natural beauty of your smile as well. A full mouth reconstruction from an oral surgeon can include the following treatments:
Dental implants replace any number of teeth. They are a permanent solution if a tooth has been lost or is failing due to trauma or disease. Dental implants restore function to teeth as well as protect the health of the jawbone.
Where bone has been damaged or is not present because of genetics, bone grafting can restore the natural contours of the jaw ridge. This procedure uses bone from a different part of the body or a donor source and repositions it in the jaw to restore volume and density. This allows dental implants to safely be placed.
If there are teeth present that are too damaged or decayed to save, they will need to be extracted. This will prevent disease from spreading and make room for a healthier and more stable tooth replacement with dental implants.
When genetic or growth defects, disease, or trauma damages the jaws, corrective jaw surgery may be necessary to restore function for eating and speaking. Jaw surgery repositions, extends, or detracts the upper jaw or lower jaw (or both) to create a more even position and harmonious bite.
In cases of facial trauma, full mouth reconstruction can restore health, function, and aesthetics to your smile. This treatment involves reconstructing and repairing damage affecting the jawbone(s), teeth, and soft tissues.
