A Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Ensure That Your Mouth Is Completely Functional
Full mouth reconstruction (FMR) is performed when most of a person’s teeth have been damaged or lost. The primary purpose of these treatments is to restore the function of affected teeth. It typically involves combining multiple treatments to tackle all the issues that the patient is dealing with.
Restore teeth function with full mouth reconstruction
Anyone with mostly damaged or missing teeth can benefit from full mouth reconstruction. The same goes for people dealing with severe orthodontic issues, like temporomandibular joint disorders. The process is unique for each person because it is customized to tackle their needs.
FMR might involve the use of dental restorations like crowns, fillings, or composite bonding. It might also involve replacing missing teeth with oral prosthetics, like implants. Also, the process aims to tackle any existing dental issues that the patient has, like tooth decay and gum disease. Here are a few ways that full mouth reconstruction helps restore the function of a person’s teeth.
1. Repairs damaged teeth
Teeth becoming damaged limits their functionality. For example, it is harder to chew with a broken or decayed tooth than with a healthy tooth. Also, a damaged tooth is more likely to pick up additional damage when exposed to bite forces, so many people instinctively avoid chewing with damaged teeth if they can.
Repairing and rebuilding damaged teeth during FMR rebuilds their structures, strengthening them. It also protects them against further damage in the future.
2. Replaces missing teeth
The functionality of a person’s missing teeth is lost until they are replaced with some form of oral prosthetics. Teeth replacement options like dentures, bridges, and implants can be used to replace any missing teeth, restoring their function.
Most people are aware of the obvious role that teeth play when it comes to chewing, but teeth also help us talk. There is no way to pronounce sounds like the letter “T” without using one’s teeth. Replacing missing teeth often leads to an improvement in the patient’s speech.
3. Keeps the patient’s mouth healthy
Some of the treatments performed during FMR make it easier to keep teeth and gums healthy. For example, teeth alignment issues are typically addressed during the reconstruction process. Poorly aligned teeth tend to overlap, making it harder to brush and floss them.
4. Preserves facial and jawbones structures
Missing most of the teeth leads to bone tissue in the jaw breaking down due to a lack of stimulation. Implants can help prevent this bone tissue loss because they replace lost teeth roots. When the patient bites down on something, the implant transfers the bite forces into their jaw, giving the tissues there the stimulation that they need to remain healthy.
