People who spend an extended period of time without dental care often experience several issues that affect their oral health and smile. If you have not kept up with regular dental exams, you can experience issues with untreated cavities, let dental damage go unnoticed, and fail to realize how a problem with your bite might be causing you chronic pain. At our Katy, TX dental practice, we have experience helping patients who need work done to correct multiple dental problems. In these situations, we often recommend starting a full mouth reconstruction, a tailored plan to identify and treat all of your active oral health issues. In addition to helping restore your smile, and restoring damage done by tooth decay, this work can lead to better bite function, which can reduce your problems with daily discomfort.
Problems With Your Teeth Can Make Biting And Chewing Difficult
When a person struggles with poor oral health, it can become more than just a cosmetic problem. You may struggle to put pressure on certain teeth when you bite down, leading to changes in your bite function and/or typical diet. These changes can have real consequences. You may struggle with TMJ dysfunction because of the stress caused by your uncomfortable bite – this problem can lead to facial pain, limited jaw movement, and chronic headaches. Limitations on your diet can make it harder for you to enjoy nutritional foods, which can have larger effects on your health.
A Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Include Prosthetic Dental Work
If your smile is currently missing one tooth, or several teeth, we can help as part of your full mouth reconstruction! After an initial evaluation, we can begin working on the problems that are responsible for problems with your appearance and bite function. We can recommend using dental implants to hold restorations in place, as this arrangement can give you better biting and chewing support. In cases where people suffer significant tooth loss, we do offer All-On-4 implant dentures, which can replace a row of teeth.
A Fully Restored Smile Can Offer Better Bite Support, And A Confidence Boost
When your smile is fully restored, it can do more than just make you more comfortable with the way you look. Replacing lost teeth, and restoring teeth with dental crowns, can help you bite and chew comfortably, and enjoy more foods and drinks. This work can also mean less pressure on your jaw joints because of a flawed bite, so you can enjoy relief from TMJ dysfunction. With that said, you can certainly look forward to showing off a better, more confident smile after this work is complete!
