The summer months are typically about celebrating freedom, and one freedom many people may take for granted is the ability to chew and speak without any pain or embarrassment about the state of their teeth, gums, and jaw. If you are experiencing dental issues that affect all of your teeth, one option to get the freedom of your mouth back is full mouth reconstruction in Charlotte, NC. You should first consult with your dentist to determine if this is a good option for you and Dr. Thomas Layton can help you decide what the best options are for your situation.
Full mouth reconstruction may sound intimidating at first, but the process may be simpler than you think. The term mostly refers to the fact your dentist is looking at a complete treatment plan for the mouth. Reconstruction may involve anything from reshaping the teeth to removing them and placing dental implants, or cosmetic dentistry procedures such as Invisalign® orthodontic treatment or dental crowns or veneers to improve overall aesthetics and functionality. How involved the reconstruction process is depends on the state of your mouth and your needs. Most procedures are likely to take a few visits before you see your final results, so be sure to keep your follow-up appointments.
Dr. Layton will give you detailed instructions on how to prepare for reconstruction. Molds may need to be taken of your mouth if you will be receiving crowns or using any straightening methods for your teeth, such as Invisalign®. Your teeth may need to be carefully shaped if you will be receiving veneers. Make sure to brush and floss your teeth every day and to follow care instructions between visits. Following Dr. Layton’s instructions carefully will help your procedure have a higher rate of success.
