Repair Damage with a Customized Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction at our Austin, TX, practice is a systematic approach to restorative dentistry. By combining various restorative procedures in a personalized treatment plan, Dr. Randal Watson can repair even extensive dental damage. Full mouth reconstruction can be an effective way to replace missing teeth, repair cracked or weakened teeth, and reduce your risk for further damage in the future. Unlike a smile makeover, the treatment is primarily designed for restorative purposes. However, the procedures involved in a full mouth reconstruction can also dramatically enhance your appearance. Dr. Watson has extensive experience in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Thanks to his expertise, he can create a comprehensive treatment plan that improves your comfort, health, and aesthetics.
Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for You?
Full mouth reconstruction will typically be appropriate if you have severely compromised oral health. The treatment can generally address:
- Missing teeth, including very large gaps in your smile
- Cracked teeth
- Weakened teeth
- Extensive decay
- Jaw recession or an imbalanced bite
Often, these problems are the result of periodontitis. This common condition consists of pockets of bacteria that develop along the gum line. As the bacteria multiply and the pockets grow larger, your gums will begin to pull away from your teeth and dental roots. Your teeth can then loosen, eventually falling out or requiring extraction. Full mouth reconstruction can repair the damage due to gum disease. Nevertheless, Dr. Watson will first need to treat the condition before administering restorative care.
Commonly Combined Procedures
Your full mouth reconstruction will depend on your oral health and your unique goals for treatment. After evaluating your condition and listening to your concerns, Dr. Watson will help you select the procedures that will be most appropriate for you. Your restorative options may include:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Inlays and onlays
- Bone grafting
Your treatment will typically take place over several appointments. However, Dr. Watson will strive to efficiently complete all necessary phases of your care.
Our team works gently and conservatively. Therefore, our treatments involve minimal discomfort. At the same time, we recognize that you may feel nervous about extensive restorative care. Fortunately, we can also provide several types of sedation including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and intravenous (IV) sedation. These medications will help you to remain comfortable and relaxed throughout your appointment, as well as allow our team to work more quickly.
The Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
By replacing missing teeth and repairing weakened oral structures, Dr. Watson can reinstate your healthy bite. After treatment, you should be able to enjoy a full range of foods, including whole fruits, steaks, and other hard and crunchy items. If you include dental implants in your treatment plan, you will enjoy especially good oral function, since these restorations will never slip out of place.
Dr. Watson has extensive experience in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Thanks to his expertise, he can create a comprehensive treatment plan that improves your comfort, health, and aesthetics.
Full mouth reconstruction can also improve your long-term dental health. Addressing current cavities, Dr. Watson can eliminate oral bacteria and prevent decay and infection in the surrounding areas. Dental bridges and implants will also fill in the gaps in your smile. Simultaneously, they will keep your other teeth from shifting out of alignment. Implants can also stop jawbone recession by sending regenerative signals to the surrounding tissue.
Finally, full mouth reconstruction will enhance your appearance and self-confidence. Your restorations will give you an even, symmetrical smile that could look years younger and dramatically boost your confidence.
