Full Mouth Reconstruction

Need a great deal of dental work and think you’ll never have that perfect smile?
Don’t despair, a full mouth reconstruction may be the perfect option to restore not only the structure and function of your teeth but the health and appearance of your entire mouth.

What is a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction is a holistic rebuild of your entire mouth that looks at everything from your teeth to your gums… as well as how everything interacts with your jaw and muscles when eating or speaking.

A thorough examination will be made with an eye towards rehabilitating and optimising the health of your entire mouth. Each full mouth reconstruction is different and takes the specifics of your condition, circumstances, and history into account so that the optimal treatment can be designed, customising and tailoring it to your needs.

Why would I need full mouth reconstruction?

You may need a full mouth reconstruction if you have experienced excessive wear, damage, or decay to your teeth, or extensive tooth loss.

Misaligned teeth, overactive jaw muscles, or grinding your teeth can result in wear or damage that affects your smile and ability to chew. Additionally, acids from caffeinated beverages or digestive fluids can lead to the erosion of the enamel surfaces of your teeth, impacting their aesthetics and strength. Like a smile makeover, a variety of solutions such as veneers, crowns, orthodontics, whitening, and other treatments can be combined to achieve the best results.

More about full mouth reconstruction

What Are the Most Common Reasons for a Full-Mouth Reconstruction?

Patients requiring a full mouth reconstruction will exhibit significant loss of tooth their structure resulting in a ‘collapsing bite’. Specific clinical findings in an extremely worn dentition may vary widely and are often confusing. The causes of these findings vary from severe wear of teeth, to broken and weakened teeth from too many fillings, to acid erosion. The location of the wear, the accompanying symptoms and signs, and information gained from you at your initial consultation are essential components in determining the cause of a collapsed bite.

Acid Erosion

This happens because of constant attack of teeth from acid. These risks are for people whom suffer from:

  • Work and sports dehydration.
  • Caffeine addiction.
  • Gastro-esophageal reflux (heart burn).
  • Severe asthma, diabetes mellitus.
  • Hypertension or other systemic diseases or syndromes that predispose to multiple medications, which causes your mouth to feel dry (xerostomia).
  • Anorexia and Bulimia.

It is usually a combination of severe wear factors and acid erosion that leads to substantial loss of tooth structure.

Severe Wear

Excessive wear is often caused by hyperactive chewing muscles and results in damage of the chewing surfaces of the teeth. This in turn can cause a deterioration of structure of the front teeth, which leads to and appearance problem as well as problems with speech. This combined with teeth that are already weakened by having large fillings in them, leads to further collapsing of your bite.
