Whether due to birth defects, accidents, or dental health issues, teeth can be lost and smiles can remain unfunctional. Thankfully, dentists can perform full mouth restoration procedures that help individuals to overcome the issues with their smile so it is made complete. Keep reading for more information.
How Is a Full Mouth Restoration Carried Out?
The first step in a full mouth restoration is for the individual to visit the dentist for a thorough examination. The dentist needs to know information about the individual’s current and past health and any medications they take. After a thorough examination and X-rays, the dentist will be able to determine what procedures will need to be carried out in restoring the smile. The following are some of the integral steps that are needed.
- One of the first considerations is the condition of the teeth. Veneers, crowns, inlays, bridges, and other dental appliances can be used to replace missing teeth or improve their appearance.
- If there are gum conditions present, they will need to be treated right away. Periodontal disease can lead to tooth loosening and the complete loss of teeth. Periodontal treatments are essential for ensuring the health of the gums is protected. Medications and dental procedures will need to be given to ensure the infection is brought under control and continued damage is not occurring.
- If there are jaw alignment issues present or the bite is not correct, intervention may be needed. In some cases, individuals may need orthodontic treatment or nighttime devices that help to protect the teeth. The dentist will take the proper steps to ensure the occlusion issues are taken care of right away.
- The appearance of the smile is an important aspect of treatment. The size, shape, and color of the teeth can all be changed by the dentist, depending on the needs of the patient. Great care will be taken to ensure the individual’s smile is made beautiful.
