Problems with your oral health can make life difficult, and lead to issues with pain and sensitivity whenever you try to eat or speak. If you have issues with multiple teeth that affect how you can bite and chew, you may need restorative treatment to address decay or damage as well as work to improve your dental function. One thing our Katy, TX dentist’s office can do for you in this situation is recommend a full mouth reconstruction. This is not a single procedure, but a recommended set of treatments to address all of your oral health concerns. We can restore unhealthy teeth with custom crowns and fillings, address any infections that affect your smile, and work on resolving problems with TMJ disorder to reduce pain and improve your jaw movement.
Treatment With Your Dentist Can Address More Than Just Dental Decay
Restorative dental work often focuses on restoring the condition and appearance of teeth that are damaged by cavities. While this work is important, it is not the only time you might need your dentist’s help. We can also provide restorations to take care of teeth that are worn down, injured, or simply too small to contribute properly to your bite. As part of a full mouth reconstruction plan, we can also evaluate your bite function and look for ways to make movement more even and less stressful on your joints and muscles.
Identifying Problems That Affect Your Ability To Bite And Chew
By mapping the pressure created and released when you bite, we can recognize imbalances that should be addressed in order to reduce issues with chronic discomfort. A custom guard can train your jaw to change its position and stop putting pressure on your joints and muscles. Treatment to protect and support unhealthy teeth with crowns can also help with this. Through restorative work, you can feel more comfortable putting pressure on a previously vulnerable tooth.
Restoring Unhealthy Teeth
Taking care of teeth affected by decay or damage can improve your smile as well as your bite function. By performing an evaluation of your smile, we can recognize what issues are present that can stop you from maintaining a comfortable, even bite. A custom, lifelike crown can be prepared and placed after just two visits, putting real improvements in release and in less time than you expect!
