Why Does a Person Need a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
This is a term used to describe a process in which a, highly skilled and trained, the dentist can restore the teeth, gums, and jaw to a healthy state. The process requires a full examination of mouth, gums, and bone. At Sargon Dental Implants we will provide a state of art facility for a full mouth reconstruction.
In some cases, this process is needed because teeth may have been lost or deteriorated. Teeth can be lost or damaged due to several reasons such as an accident, decay, injury, breakage, or acid erosion. Misaligned teeth can cause painful jaw problems and these jaw problems can lead to severe head and neck pain. Therefore, an adjustment to the dental alignment must be made to correctly align the teeth and correct the bite (occlusion).
Some of these dental issues can be corrected with the use of dental veneers, dental crowns, and dental implants. The condition of the teeth will determine the actions that need to be taken by the dentist to restore the mouth back to a healthy state.
Why does a person need a full mouth reconstruction?
The main cause of deterioration of teeth is periodontitis. This is a disease affecting gums and bone that support the teeth, and it results from inadequate tooth brushing and flossing. The result of this disease is that the irritated gums pull away from the teeth and form pockets between the teeth and the gums. The first stage is called “gingivitis” and is characterized by gum tissue that is red, puffy, and bleeds easily when touched with a toothbrush, floss or dental instrument.
These pockets fill with bacteria and pus which give off a foul odor. Gum disease can be divided into several categories. The second, third, and fourth stages are initial, moderate, and advanced periodontal disease. These stages are different from gingivitis because the infection has destroyed the bone supporting the teeth, causing eventual tooth loss. This is why patients suffer from tooth loss as they age. This eventual tooth loss can cause a decline in a patient’s overall health and wellbeing. In order to correct this, a patient must trust a highly skilled dentist like Dr. Lazarof to undergo a full mouth reconstruction in order to restore the teeth, gums, and jaw to a healthy state.
