What is a full mouth reconstruction in Stuart, FL?
A full mouth reconstruction is also referred to as a full-mouth restoration and it involves many cosmetic dentistry procedures that are designed specifically to improve your smile's appearance and health. Reconstructions are typically recommended for patients with failing, damaged, or missing teeth. In addition to negatively impacting the appearance of your smile, missing or damaged teeth can also create an imbalance in your bite and your ability to properly chew. There are a number of dental treatments available depending on the level of damage to your teeth and they include dental bridges, dental crowns, dental implants, porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, tooth-colored fillings, and the Teeth Next Day™ procedure offered exclusively by PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry.
What can patients expect from full-mouth reconstruction in Stuart, FL?
During your first visit, you will have a consultation with a cosmetic dentist for an evaluation. You will also receive an oral examination, 3D CT Scans, and dental history check from your dentist. Neuromuscular problems will also be evaluated and other treatment recommendations will be made. The dentist will look at all of this information in order to determine what options are available to you in order to restore your mouth to a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile.
Does full mouth reconstruction make patients look younger?
Because teeth are chipped, worn down, missing and weathered, it can make the face look worn down and older. Making the investment in a full-mouth reconstruction in Stuart, FL could create a younger-looking smile while enabling you to smile more often. There are also neuromuscular treatments available that can help alleviate symptoms associated with a bad bite that often make people feel older than they really are. All the treatments used in a full-mouth reconstruction are quite natural looking. Many patients report back about feeling rejuvenated once their full-mouth reconstructions are completed.
How do patients know if they are a good candidate or not?
For those who have teeth that are severely damaged or who are suffering from symptoms of TMD, which includes jaw pain, headaches, or sounds of popping inside the jaw, then you could be a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction. For those who have been affected by missing teeth, gum disease, or a bite that is off-balance then you would also most likely benefit from reconstruction. Good candidates are also those who have clenching habits, grind their teeth, or who have worn down teeth.
