Patients sometimes hear the phrase “full mouth reconstruction” and immediately shut down. They don’t want to deal with a complete overhaul of their mouth! Just the thought can be terrifying, but we have some information that might change your mind.
You might not think that full mouth reconstruction is for you, but it’s quite possible that it is. It can be difficult to know without taking a moment to step back and take an objective look at what’s really going on in your smile.
Today, we want to talk a little bit about the process of full mouth reconstruction, but we also want to help you make the decision to call, if it’s time. After all, while a full mouth reconstruction might sound scary, it could not only improve your life, but it could also save your life.
Is It Time?
So, is it time to call for a consultation or appointment? How can you know that it’s time to stop hoping your smile will improve and actually take drastic steps to make that improvement happen? We have a few questions to get you thinking!
How’s the Pain?
Do your teeth hurt? Something as simple as chewing your favorite foods or drinking a warm cup of coffee should not hurt your teeth! If you’re experiencing pain when you try to use your teeth for their regular functions, then it’s definitely time to give us a call. Something is going wrong!
How’s the Confidence?
Are you confident when you smile, or do you feel humiliated? Someone who should consider full mouth reconstruction probably feels the latter. After all, your smile doesn’t look like the smile of other people. Strangers stare at your teeth, and you would rather not open your mouth at all. That’s a sign that it’s time to consider full mouth reconstruction.
How’s Your Health?
This is the most important aspect for us. We care about your comfort and your confidence, but your life is the most valuable of all. Poor oral health affects the rest of your body! If your mouth is struggling with infection and decay, chances are pretty great that your body is also struggling with more serious issues.
Addressing Health First
We begin any full mouth reconstruction by addressing the health of your mouth first. We can’t do anything cosmetically until your teeth are strong enough to handle the cosmetic work, anyway! So we begin here. You’ll be surprised at what a difference it makes in the way you feel!
Decay Treatment: We will begin by removing any signs of decay from your mouth. We want to fill all of the cavities, repair broken teeth, and remove teeth that are no longer viable. This will probably take care of a lot of the pain you’re feeling.
Infection Treatment: We also want to remove any signs of gum disease infection from your mouth. We will treat the infection, repair your gums, and teach you how to prevent gum disease infections in the future.
Making Your Smile Stunning
Once your mouth is feeling healthier, you’ll be ready to consider cosmetic improvements! This is what will really transform the way your smile LOOKS. We can start a little bit of cosmetic work in the earlier stage, but most of this will come now that your teeth are healthy enough to hold appliances and handle cosmetic treatments.
Depending on what you want for your smile, we will select from our vast array of cosmetic options to give you the smile of your dreams. We might begin with some whitening or orthodontics. Veneers, crowns, or dental bonding can also help reshape your smile into something truly stunning.
Begin the Process Today with a Consultation
Still think a full mouth reconstruction isn’t for you? Maybe it isn’t, but there’s only one way to know for sure, and that’s to contact us to schedule a consultation. We will take a look at your smile and explain your options so that you can make an informed decision!
We can’t wait to see you and your smile very soon!
