Patients who have experienced severe oral health problems or complications from diseases like oral cancer often find themselves in need of a full mouth reconstruction. In order to preserve oral function and quality of life. Conditions that sometimes lead to this include:

  • Bruxism
  • Mouth and throat cancers
  • Severe trauma
  • Advanced gum disease

When you are considering your options for a full mouth restoration, it’s important to understand how a dentist approaches assessing the options and recommending them to you. That way you can better understand the choices involved as you move forward with this procedure.

Options for Restoration

The same options that are available to you for tooth replacement and partial mouth restoration are available when you need to restore your entire smile. Depending on the exact nature of your case, you might get a recommendation for more than one to be implemented together.

  • Dental implants
  • Veneers
  • Dentures
  • Bridgework
  • Crowns

Each of these treatments has its own costs and benefits, so the best balance of them for your case will depend on the current architecture of your mouth and the exact restoration needs Dr. Daren Becker identifies.

Are You a Candidate?

If you are wondering whether you are a candidate for full mouth restoration, the main thing to consider is whether you are experiencing complications from failing dental work, including fillings and crowns. If so, you should consider how these treatments will help your smile.

The other key indicator that this process is for you is if you have several missing teeth, either alongside the complications from old fillings and crowns or as its own issue. Either way, it’s time to talk about how these restoration options can help preserve your smile and your quality of life.
