Signs You Could Benefit from a Full Mouth Reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction is kind of like an extreme makeover, but for your smile. When you hear about a makeover, you might imagine making some improvements to boost aesthetic appeal.

However, we’re not talking about mere cosmetic changes. A full mouth reconstruction is a carefully crafted plan designed to elevate your quality of life. Is it right for you?

Understanding Full Mouth Reconstruction Services

A full mouth reconstruction (FMR) aims to rebuild structures in the mouth to restore healthy and comfortable function. This includes tooth, bone, muscle, and gum tissue. It’s an entire process, rather than a single procedure.

Why might FMR be needed? You might choose to make cosmetic enhancements to your smile simply because you want to. You have that freedom of choice.

If your eating and speaking habits are limited because of damage caused by cancer, trauma, oral disease, or a congenital defect, then you absolutely need an FMR.

Here are some signs that your smile could need a major restoration:

  • Chronic pain
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Loose teeth
  • Chronic migraine or headaches
  • Pain in jaw, face, neck, and even shoulders or upper back
  • Damaged teeth
  • Congestion in your ears

Signs vary by individual and their unique needs. There are even silent signs that your teeth are failing or that your mouth is compromised.

What You Can Do

Start with a routine dental examination. X-rays and a professional evaluation will pinpoint issues you’re not aware of. Your dentist will work with you to prioritize the problems you face and draft a plan for getting your mouth back to a state of healthy function.

Get your smile back to where it was meant to be! Call your dentist to get started.
