Why Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Needed?
There are a number of different reasons why some people require full mouth reconstruction. This includes the likes of:
- On-going complaints of headache, muscle, and jaw pain, which requires changes to the bite.
- Teeth that have become severely worn as a consequence of tooth grinding or erosion due to long-term acid exposure, which can happen because of acid reflux, beverages, and foods.
- Fractured or injured teeth.
- Lost of a tooth or teeth because of trauma or decay.

What to Expect from Full Mouth Reconstruction
The procedure will always begin with a consultation. Dr. Moulton will assess your oral health and discuss with you the best course of action.
Dr. Moulton will make note of any tooth movement, root canal problems, short or long teeth, cracks, tooth wear, decay, and cavities.
Your gum tissues will also be assessed. If your gums are not healthy, it is possible that you will require root planing and scaling to treat periodontal disease.
More intensive treatments could be needed to make sure there is a solid foundation for your newly reconstructed teeth. This could involve bone or soft tissue grafts to build up gums and jaw bone.
Dr. Moulton will look for any bone density irregularities, periodontal disease, insufficient or excessive gum tissue, or deep pockets.
Finally, a stable bite is something that Dr. Moulton will help you to achieve, as this is vital to your overall oral health. A stable bite is one that enables you to chew or move your mouth with ease and comfort. Orthodontics may be needed if this is an issue.
Your teeth will be evaluated to determine what sort of restorative procedures you may need. Reconstructive treatments may include:
