A Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Restore Your Oral Health
A compromised smile can affect your ability to eat and speak confidently. If you have multiple oral health concerns, Drs. Martin Farnsworth and Derek Farnsworth can design a full mouth reconstruction especially for you. At our Mesa, AZ, office, we offer a full range of treatments designed to improve your oral health, including dental implants, restorations, and mouth guards. Our comprehensive approach allows us to address several areas of your smile and help you achieve a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is a combination of procedures that can address multiple areas of concern. It is a good option for patients who want to repair their dental health and not simply address cosmetic issues. You may qualify for treatment if you suffer from:
- Chipped, fractured, or cracked teeth
- Missing teeth
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
- Sleep apnea
Since treatment may involve oral surgery, you should also be healthy enough to undergo all procedures included. We will thoroughly evaluate your overall health and medical history before proceeding with treatment.
Our office offers several procedures that can be incorporated into a full mouth reconstruction.
Dental crowns can strengthen badly damaged teeth or replace missing teeth when combined with dental implants. Our crowns are custom-crafted at an offsite laboratory for the most lifelike results.
If you have up to three consecutive missing teeth, a bridge can conceal gaps in your smile. While traditional bridges are held in place by surrounding teeth, implant-supported bridges are secured to dental implant embedded in your jaw.
Our comprehensive approach allows us to address several areas of your smile and help you achieve a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, you may be a good candidate for dentures. For added support and stability, we also offer implant-supported dentures and can transform your existing dentures into implant-supported prosthetics.
Your new restorations can be coupled with dental implants, which are widely considered the gold standard of tooth replacement. These posts can promote the health of your jawbone and restore full form and function to your smile.
Patients who suffer from TMD can benefit from therapeutic treatment. We offer custom-made oral devices which can prevent excessive wear and tear on your joints.
Obstructive sleep apnea is often caused by a blockage in your airways. To keep your airways clear during sleep, we can design a mouth guard that fits over your upper and lower arches.
We perform many types of oral surgery to meet our patients various needs. We can remove wisdom teeth, perform a bone graft, and biopsy abnormal tissue. If you have dental phobia, we can provide nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation to help you relax during your procedure.
For patients with periodontal disease, we offer both non-surgical and surgical treatment. Scaling and root planing and flap surgery can restore the health of your gums and protect you from dental sensitivity.
Benefits of Treatment
Unlike a smile makeover, which is intended to address cosmetic concerns, a full mouth reconstruction is based on functionality. We adhere to the philosophy that every treatment included in a full mouth reconstruction should have a functional benefit, and we tailor treatment to each individual for the best possible results.
During your initial consultation, we can assess the health and function of your smile. We can educate you about your options and inform you of the risks and benefits of each recommended procedure. Once you are ready to move forward, we can create a completely customized treatment plan. The length of your treatment will vary based on the extent of dental work you need and the nature of the procedures included. If oral surgery is involved in your plan, the timeline may be longer. Our practice is also unique in that we perform most oral surgeries in our office. As a result, you will not need to visit multiple locations to receive high-quality, comprehensive care.
