Full Mouth Reconstruction
Encinitas, Carlsbad, and San Diego
Full mouth reconstruction truly addresses all of your dental problems from the ground up. It is similar to a Smile Makeover in the sense that it is a comprehensive treatment plan, but it addresses larger and deeper underlying problems. Full mouth reconstruction is appropriate if you have serious congenital defects, dental damage caused by an injury or accident, or untreated dental health issues.
As an LVI trained neuromuscular dentist, Dr. Walsh-Cole will begin by addressing the very foundation of your dental health – your neuromuscular health. She will assess the condition of your jaw joint, muscles and nerves, and how your teeth work together. Any problems with your bite will be corrected before any restorations are used, to ensure that everything works together properly and comfortably.
The second phase of full mouth reconstruction is treating the underlying dental health problems including tooth decay and gum disease. In order to create a beautiful smile, we must first create a healthy, disease-free smile. During this phase we also begin looking at problems such as brittle or broken teeth, and any deep damage to the interior and roots of your teeth.
The final phase of full mouth reconstruction is pulling it all together with cosmetic dental solutions. This is when we apply restorations, such as fillings and crowns, as well as porcelain veneers and finishing touches such as tooth whitening.
Full mouth reconstruction can be an in-depth and lengthy process, but it is far more effective than trying to treat your dental problems individually. Each phase leads to and compliments the next. All of the procedures work together to preserve your teeth and create a beautiful, comfortable, healthy smile.
