When you are not happy with the esthetics or function of your teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for a full mouth evaluation and treatment. Every case is different. You may be missing teeth and not be able to chew properly or you may simply feel self-conscious about your smile but are functioning fine.
A full mouth reconstruction starts with a full evaluation of your current situation and discussing what you wish to achieve with treatment. It most likely will involve a combination of procedures over a period of time. Some cases are simple and can be done in a shorter amount of time. Each case is unique.
If you’re considering a full mouth reconstruction, here’s what you should know before you get started.
One option for a complete restoration of your teeth is a smile makeover. The process begins with some photographs and images that are used to create a plan for treatment that will result in the look you want. The process could involve any of the following procedures:
Some teeth may need to be replaced, some may need to be restored, some may just need to be whitened. In some cases, you may need a complete set of new teeth. It all depends on the current condition of your teeth and whether or not any can be saved.
Before your smile makeover can take place you may need some restorative procedures such as fillings or root canals. Restoring your dental health should be the top priority, after which the appearance of your teeth comes next.
Another option for a full mouth restoration is Instant Teeth. Instant Teeth is a complete set of prosthetic teeth that can be placed in a single day. You can have your existing teeth completely replaced and go home the same day with a whole new smile.
Instant Teeth are implant-supported dentures. Dental implants are placed as anchors to hold a complete arch of teeth in place. These prosthetics are fixed in place as opposed to traditional dentures that are removable. You won’t have to worry about messy adhesives or dentures that slip out of place. Fixed dentures can only be removed by your dentist.
Another benefit of implant-supported dentures is that the implants are embedded in the jaw bone which helps to prevent bone loss and the sunken look that results from it.
Choosing the Best Option For You
If your teeth are in need of an improved look, a smile makeover is more likely what you need. Even if some teeth may need to be replaced, if the majority of your teeth are able to be restored and remain in place in your mouth, a smile makeover can take care of the rest. Whitening treatments, veneers, and even orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth can be part of your smile transformation.
When most or all of your teeth are beyond saving, a full mouth reconstruction is necessary. Instant Teeth are a convenient way to get a complete restoration. You’ll have a fully functional set of new teeth that are fixed in place, essentially permanent. Only your dentist will be able to remove them once they are placed, making them sturdy and strong.
