Full mouth restoration typically involves performing procedures like crowns, bridges and veneers to rebuild or simultaneously restore all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. The need for full mouth restoration may result from:
- Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma
- Teeth that have been injured or fractured
- Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding
Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite (occlusion).
A full mouth restoration begins with the examination of your teeth, gum tissues ect. Requiring records of your mouth, such as X-rays and photographs, impressions of your upper and lower teeth, models of your teeth that are made from the impressions and a model of your bite.
