FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
Our teeth are one of the most important parts of our bodies. Not only do they help us express happiness, but they also help us to bite and chew, aide our speech, and support the shape and structure of our face. Unfortunately, try as we may keep our teeth looking and feeling healthy, damage and decay can be inevitable.
Restorative dental work, such as cavity fillings and crowns, can be used to treat minor problems on individual teeth. However, when more than half of the teeth in the upper or lower jaws are affected, much more extensive treatments are required to fully restore the function and aesthetic beauty of your smile. In these instances, Dr. Greg Manning at Dentistry at Power Ranch may recommend a full mouth reconstruction.
What is a full mouth reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is a term used to describe dental work that aims to restore all of the teeth in either the upper or lower arch. To do this, multiple specialties might need to be involved, including endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry. However, as every full mouth reconstruction is completely different, the extent of the treatments that you need will vary, and be discussed with your consultation.
