When Does A Smile Need Full Mouth Reconstruction?

In a recent blog, we talked about how a smile makeover can offer cosmetic improvements for your smile. But to handle multiple restorative problems with a smile, from damaged teeth to missing ones, we have another option. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about full mouth reconstruction.

The Initial Examination and Treatment Plan

Every smile is different, and will require a unique approach to full mouth reconstruction. To get started, we will talk to you about your smile concerns and the issues you would like to see addressed. We also want to understand your current state of oral health, and your oral health history too. We then sit you down and employ digital x-rays and advanced intraoral cameras to obtain a thorough examination and diagnosis of your smile. From there, we can create a unique treatment plan to take on these issues and restore the health and function of your smile, as well as the appearance of your smile too.  

Keeping You Comfortable

We know that you may feel a little nervous about the procedure or procedures we’re using to transform your smile’s health, function, and beauty. Which is why we not only offer a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable, but dental sedation too. This is especially helpful for those with anxiety or special needs. The sedation helps you enter a calm and relaxed state, and you have little to no memory of the procedure at all. We could provide nitrous oxide, oral, and IV sedation, the option we choose depending on your anxiety levels, age, weight, medical history, or any special needs. We want to ensure that every patient enjoys their time in the office, and never dreads seeing us for necessary dental care.

Common Treatment Options

We employ a host of restorative treatment options, as we want to make sure your teeth are even, your bite is balanced, and that your smile functions properly without discomfort or imbalance. We also want you to feel proud to show off your new results. We could use Invisalign® to correct misalignment, and we could employ prosthetics like dental implants to replace one or multiple missing teeth. We can treat decay and infection with lifelike fillings and crowns. Custom oral appliances could also address underlying issues like TMJ disorder and bruxism as well. Bonding, contouring, and events could offer major cosmetic transformation too, as could our professional teeth whitening treatments.
