Who Is a Candidate for Full Mouth Restoration?
Full mouth restoration is a comprehensive solution to help address a number of dental problems. Full mouth restoration can help you look and feel your best.
There are a number of reasons that a full mouth restoration may be right for you. Here, Dr. Jaime Breziner, Dr. David Vasquez, and Dr. Yael Kandinov — the talented dental team at La Jolla Family Smile Design — discuss indicators that someone is a candidate for full mouth restoration.
Many people consider missing teeth to be an aesthetic issue. However, missing teeth can actually impact oral health. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift, lead to bone loss in the jaw, and even increase the risk of gum disease.
If a person is missing most or all of their teeth, then they may be a candidate for full mouth restoration. During the restoration process, missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants, dentures, or dental bridges.
Another serious issue that may indicate that a patient is a candidate for full mouth restoration is multiple damaged teeth. Damaged teeth can impact the appearance of a person’s smile. Damaged teeth, if left untreated, can also lead to other oral health issues.
If a person has multiple cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged teeth, they may be a candidate for full mouth restoration. How the teeth are restored depends on the unique characteristics of the teeth and the nature of the damage.
Jaw or Mouth Injury
Life happens. Unfortunately, sometimes unexpected serious injuries can occur. If a person has suffered a jaw or mouth injury, then full mouth restoration may be necessary to restore both oral aesthetics and normal dental function.
Bite Problems and Teeth Grinding
Bite problems and teeth grinding are common issues that can have a huge impact on a person’s health and wellness. Bite problems and teeth grinding can cause jaw pain, muscle pain, headaches, additional bite issues, and abnormal wear and tear of the teeth.
If a person is regularly grinding their teeth or has bite problems, then full mouth restoration may help to resolve the issue and the associated health and wellness problems. A full mouth restoration can address underlying issues that are contributing to the bite and teeth grinding problems.
Oral Health Issues
There are a number of oral health issues that may indicate that a person is a candidate for full mouth restoration. While many oral health issues can be resolved with noninvasive procedures, if left untreated, oral health issues may necessitate full mouth restoration.
