Full-Mouth Restorations in Costa Mesa and Santa Ana
When teeth in both the lower and upper jaws are damaged, a full-mouth reconstruction (also known as full-mouth restoration or full-mouth rehabilitation) can restore the look and function of teeth. This procedure often precedes other restorative treatments such as dental implants.
At New Image Dentistry & Implants, we provide patients with the highest quality full-mouth reconstruction treatments. Our specializations include crowns, bridges, gum treatment, and cosmetic procedures including the placement of veneers and lumineers.
Full-mouth reconstruction is used to treat a wide range of dental problems including:
- Decayed or damaged teeth
- Teeth that are worn down by acidic intake, grinding, or clenching
- Malocclusion (chronic jaw, facial pain, or headaches due to misalignment)
Full-Mouth Reconstruction with Dental Implants:
If you are receiving dental implants, full-mouth reconstruction may be used to prepare the mouth for placement, especially in cases where several teeth or a full arch need to be replaced. Full-mouth reconstruction in combination with dental implants provides long-lasting treatment that transforms the health and appearance of your smile. Due to the advanced nature of full-mouth reconstruction and dental implants, you should only trust your treatment to a dental professional with specialized knowledge, education, care and experience. New Image Dentistry & Implants has years of experience in helping patients receive only the best full-mouth restorations and dental implant treatment.
Common Procedures in Full-Mouth Reconstruction:
Each reconstruction depends on your unique needs; however, common steps occur in a majority of full-mouth restorations. These include an initial examination to determine how best to proceed in providing your full-mouth reconstruction, the nature of and extent of damage to teeth, and how best to avoid future problems through preventive measures. During this examination, we check the health and condition of your:
- Gum tissues
- Bite alignment
- Jaw muscles
- Temporomandibular joints
The health of your natural teeth is a key component in determining the best way of providing reconstruction. Sufficient health of teeth and gum tissue are required before any other treatments can proceed. Periodontal (gum) disease may be treated using scaling and planning to remove infection. Misalignment and any other dental problems will be addressed and corrected to ensure your comfort, safety, and health during and after full-mouth reconstruction.
When all the proper steps are complete, you will have a healthy, beautiful smile to last for years!
