When people come to Dr. Anthony Mobasser’s dental office searching for a dental procedure, they rarely expect to hear they need a full mouth reconstruction. The procedure’s name sounds much more extreme than it is, entailing various processes meant to restore a person’s mouth accordingly. Here, Dr. Mobasser, a leading expert in full mouth reconstruction in Los Angeles, explains the different components of the procedure.
What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
The procedure known as a full mouth reconstruction is almost what the title implies. It is a treatment that aims at rebuilding and/or replacing all, if not most, of the teeth in the patient’s mouth. It combines restorative dentistry and esthetics to improve the health and function of a person’s mouth while enhancing the aesthetic aspects. These reconstruction measures can be applied to various cases, making them a very versatile treatment. Teeth decay, broken teeth, and consequences of teeth grinding can all cause severe strain and damage to your teeth, and all of these can be addressed through full mouth reconstruction. This way, something can be done about your teeth regardless of how much damage your teeth have gone through.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatment Options
- Onlays are a specific filling for teeth decay, fractures, and similar problems. Similarly to inlays, these indirect restorations incorporate artificial cusps by covering or “laying” the missing real cusps of teeth. These allow for the conservation of the dental structure when the only other choice would be to eliminate the cusps and restore it with a crown.
- Crowns – Crowns are a type of dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or an implant. These are usually used when a large cavity threatens the health or integrity of a tooth and can be made of various materials. They can improve the strength and the appearance of a person’s teeth.
- Bridges – Bridges are fixed dental restoration prostheses used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth to the adjacent teeth or dental implants. These act as bridges between existing dental structures to improve the overall dentures’ look and integrity.
- Veneers – Veneers are a layer of an artificial material placed over a tooth to protect the tooth surface from damage and improve the aesthetics of a person’s smile. Most commonly, veneers are made of composite or dental porcelain and either fabricated in a dental lab or built up by a cosmetic dentist in the patient’s mouth.
- Dental Implants – Dental implants are surgical fixtures that interface with the jaw or the skull bone to support a dental prosthesis. These act as orthodontic anchors to replace entire teeth with functional crowns. Through dental implants, cosmetic dentists can improve the mouth’s functionality and aesthetic appeal. These are often used when patients lose a whole tooth for various reasons.
- Dentures – Dentures are prosthetic dental devices constructed to replace missing teeth and supported by the mouth’s soft tissue. Depending on the patient’s convenience and preference, these can be fixed via implants or removable.
