What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction? Dental Treatment Explained.

A full mouth reconstruction refers to the combination of dental treatments and materials used to restore an individual’s smile after the loss of teeth or damage to their existing ones. 
A full mouth reconstruction is often necessary when the teeth are severely damaged or decayed. The goal of this type of dental treatment is to restore the function and appearance of the teeth. This can be done through a variety of dental treatments. Since every full mouth reconstruction case is unique, a specific treatment plan will be determined based on the individual needs of the patient. 
Dr. Tom Meyer at Meyer Dental Group in Mount Prospect, has been providing full mouth reconstructions for more than 20 years. When you consider full mouth reconstruction treatment, please read and learn more below.

Why a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

The purpose of full mouth reconstruction, is to replace any missing teeth or damaged ones with dental implants, dentures, and bridges. With these treatments, individuals can regain their smile and function as well as improve their overall health and self-esteem.
There are several reasons why a person may need full mouth reconstruction. Missing teeth, damage from disease or injury, and major orthodontic changes can all require that your dentist recommends to perform a full mouth reconstruction. In addition to improving your appearance and boosting your confidence, full mouth reconstruction can increase your overall health as well. 

Can TMJ Disorder lead to a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

TMJ Disorder can lead to a full mouth reconstruction because when the jaw isn't able to move properly, it can cause teeth to shift and become misaligned. This can lead to bite problems and eventually tooth loss. A full mouth reconstruction is when all (or most) of the teeth in the mouth are replaced. This is a very extensive procedure, but it can be necessary in order to restore oral health.
If you suffer from TMJ Disorder, you may notice significant changes in your teeth and bite as time goes on. Without treatment, these problems can lead to more complications like inflammation of soft tissues, prolonged tooth pain and an inability to chew your food properly. In these cases, it’s recommended that you schedule a TMJ Comprehensive Evaluation.
