Full Mouth Reconstruction in Jupiter, FL


If you have been suffering from tooth loss for years, and have been trying to make do with dentures or bridges, or maybe have resorted to becoming used to a life with no teeth at all, then you need to know about full mouth reconstruction.

Usually, full mouth reconstruction is done by a trained prosthodontist with expertise in total mouth restoration.

Prosthodontists specialize in prosthetic dentistry, which means they use prosthetic teeth to restore your mouth to the way it was before your tooth loss. They are the perfect care providers to go to when you need to have a lot of prosthetic teeth in the form of dental implants, dentures, bridges, veneers, or a combination of all restorative dental practices.

Keep reading for additional information from Roy C. Blake III, DDS, MSD, Maxillofacial Prosthodontist about the full mouth reconstruction process.

Understanding Full Mouth Reconstruction


If you need a full mouth reconstruction, it means you have few or no natural teeth left in your mouth, and you need your teeth rebuilt or replaced.

Adults can lose all of their teeth in multiple ways, but the most common reason people lose all of their teeth is gum disease. When gum disease becomes severe, the infection can cause the jawbone to begin to deteriorate, which will make your teeth loosen and eventually fall out.

Because the history of tooth loss, overall health, and preferences are different for each person, each mouth reconstruction is different as well. For example, if you have some of your teeth left in the bottom jaw but you have no teeth in your top jaw, you may need dental implants for your top jaw and a combination of bridges, implants, or veneers for your bottom jaw.

Prosthodontists do not just use one technique to restore your smile; instead, a combination of procedures may work best.

Who Requires Full Mouth Reconstruction?



Patients Who Need Extensive Restorations


If you only need a few teeth replaced, a full mouth reconstruction is not what you need. However, if you need extensive restorations because you have lost nearly all of your teeth, full mouth reconstruction should be perfect for your needs.

Patients With Ectodermal Dysplasia, Amelogenesis, and Dentinogenesis Imperfecta


Patients with specific dental concerns may often need a full mouth replacement.
•  People with ectodermal dysplasia often have many missing teeth in addition to cleft lip and cleft palate, and full mouth reconstructions aid them in eating and speaking.
•  Patients with weak or missing enamel on most of their teeth due to amelogenesis often need a full mouth reconstruction to replace their weak or missing teeth with a full set of prosthetic teeth.
•  Dentinogenesis causes patients to have very weak and discolored teeth. They need to have a full mouth reconstruction as well.

Other Reasons You Might Consider Full Mouth Reconstruction


If you have many broken teeth along with missing teeth, a full mouth reconstruction makes perfect sense. The procedure will lower your risk for infections from broken teeth. If you have whole mouth trauma due to an accident or an injury, full mouth reconstruction is a great solution.

Considerations About Full Mouth Reconstruction


While full mouth reconstruction benefits many people, there are some things you need to keep in mind if you are planning to have the procedure done. You need to understand that some conditions may delay the restoration process.

Addressing Periodontitis


One of the most important steps you need to take before you undergo full mouth reconstruction is to get your advanced gum disease, or periodontitis, treated. Only when our dentist has your periodontitis under control can you undergo a full mouth restoration.

Treatment Options and Common Procedures



Dental Implants


Dentists and prosthodontists can perform single-tooth implants or multiple-tooth implants to restore your teeth. Single-tooth implants can be done as a way to replace missing teeth and also to act as an anchor site for bridges.

Multiple-tooth implants are usually prosthetic bridges attached to your jawbone through either two or four implanted screws.

Dental implants use a metal screw made of non-corrosive, lightweight, strong metal such as titanium that is placed into your jawbone. As your jawbone heals, the metal screw will be used to hold a connection (or abutment) and a prosthetic tooth. Dental implants resemble the anatomy of your natural tooth and work much as your natural tooth does.

All-on-4


If you have lost all of your teeth, you may make a great candidate for the All-on-4 technique. This treatment gives patients a complete set of either upper or lower teeth using only four implant screws and abutments. This procedure makes full mouth reconstruction less time-intensive and more feasible than other full mouth reconstruction techniques.

Onlays


If your molars are damaged, onlays may be added as part of the full mouth reconstruction process. An onlay is a prosthetic porcelain or resin piece that dentists can cement onto your molar cusps to improve their look as well as their function.

Crowns


Dental crowns cover and protect teeth that are discolored or weakened due to trauma or disease. If you have teeth that only need a little care, the prosthodontist may be able to repair them with crowns, which are either made of porcelain or resin and cover your entire tooth.

Bridges


If you are missing most or all of your teeth, you have several options. Usually, bridges can replace several teeth that are missing next to each other, but they can also replace teeth that are across from each other as well. Bridges can be cemented into your mouth permanently, but they can also be removable. Bridges usually have to be supported by two natural teeth or two implanted teeth.

Veneers


Dentists and prosthodontists use veneers to cover teeth that are discolored, damaged, broken, cracked, crooked, or chipped. Veneers are usually made of porcelain and cover teeth with perfect whiteness. They are a great solution if you need cosmetic fixes for several teeth in either your upper or lower jaw.

Dentures


You can also opt for either full or partial dentures. Dentures are another form of prosthetic teeth. They are usually made from acrylic, resin, or plastic, sometimes with porcelain prosthetic teeth over an acrylic base. Dentures can stay in your mouth through suction or with dental paste that holds them tightly against your gums.

Benefits of Treatment



Improving Oral Health and Aesthetics


One of the most important benefits of undergoing a full mouth reconstruction is it improves overall oral health. If you have broken or cracked teeth, infection can set in, which can make it painful to eat or even speak.

Also, you improve the overall aesthetic appearance of your mouth as well. You will be able to see a complete set of teeth rather than many missing, broken, or cracked teeth.

Boosting Self-Esteem


When your teeth look better and your mouth is healthier, then your self-esteem improves dramatically. You can put your smile out front and center rather than hanging back in the shadows, hoping no one notices you.

If you are tired of smiling with your mouth closed, and you want to indulge in chewy foods again, a full mouth reconstruction may be the best gift you can ever give yourself.
