The phrase “total” or “full” mouth reconstruction may sound daunting, and bring extreme images to mind. It refers to replacing or rebuilding a patient’s teeth with restorative dentistry, available at Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL.
Full mouth reconstruction can achieve many goals, and it doesn’t always mean the same thing for every patient. Candidates for the procedure may have lost some or all of their teeth due to grinding, trauma, or decay. Their teeth may be severely worn from those same causes.
The objective is to restore the health and appearance of the entire mouth: from the teeth themselves, to the roots and gums, to other surface enhancement.
Full mouth reconstruction is more than a smile makeover, though it uses some of the same procedures. It can include some or all of the following:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental implants
- Gum therapy
- Bite adjustment
Whether it involves dental implants or other procedures, restorative dentistry from Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL can rejuvenate your entire mouth! Patients from North Athens, East Mooresville, and South Cullman have learned that no matter how much teeth have deteriorated, there is always hope, and always a way to improve them.
