Full mouth rehabilitation or restoration, it's a group effort for sure. Where it's not done overnight, but people who have severe wear, all their teeth, they're just trying to get back into a normalcy that can affect, maybe, their TMJ. It takes a lot of dedication, but it is worth it because we want them to be able to chew and function well. If you leave it alone, it just progressively gets worse. It is to a point of no return, at some point. We always let the patient know when there is something in the benefits of a full-mouth reconstruction where the bite can be restored and the wear is not so severe. We usually have great specialists that are around us that we can talk with and that they would be referred to when it's pretty extensive. I always tell patients, ”Hey, you're dealing with a whole mouth, it's not just teeth.” Once they understand that, they go along with it and they follow through on that. Yeah, it is highly recommended.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction Options: Dentures, Dental Implants, & More
One full-mouth reconstruction option we provide is traditional dentures. Your replacement teeth will improve your ability to chew, speak, and smile. And because they will be custom-made for you, your new teeth will look completely natural!
If you are a good candidate, we can also attach implant-supported dentures to dental implants! On top of the secure hold and other benefits, the strong foundation of your dental implants will also improve your bite power!
We also provide several options to repair damaged teeth, including dental crowns, bridges, root canals, and more!
The Importance Of Replacing Missing Teeth
On top of the gap left in your smile, the gap left by missing tooth roots can lead to bone and tissue loss, ultimately affecting your look. But missing teeth threaten much more than your appearance.
Because missing teeth can prevent you from properly chewing and digesting your food, they can affect your overall health. Your remaining teeth can also shift out of alignment, making the problem even worse.
But with a full-mouth reconstruction, you’ll regain your oral function and your appearance!
Comfort Options, Dental Sedation
To help entertain and distract you while we work, you can sit back and enjoy your favorite TV show or listen to music through headphones.
We can also help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options.
