What Is Full Mouth Restoration? | Woodstock Implant Dentistry

There are many different reasons why our teeth can become damaged or need replacement. Some people have overbites or crossbites that were never corrected. Others might have experienced tooth decay over time. Some things are completely out of our control and unexpected, like an accident that knocks out a tooth. One thing’s for sure, if enough teeth get damaged, it can become a serious problem when left untreated. For those with many damaged or missing teeth, a full mouth restoration is one of the best ways to restore their smile.

What is Full Mouth Restoration?

Full mouth restoration can involve one or many restorative dental treatments. These are performed to help restore or replace the teeth in a person’s mouth. But there’s still a key difference between this and cosmetic treatments. Full mouth restoration is often necessary, while purely cosmetic dentistry is usually a choice. Thankfully, with all the dental tools and options at our disposal, we can restore smiles in many ways, such as:

  • Dental implants (to replace missing or damaged teeth)
  • Dentures (to replace missing or damaged teeth)
  • Dental crowns & bridges (to restore and replace damaged or missing teeth)
  • Periodontal treatments (to restore gum health and fight gum recession)

We also understand that each patient’s dental situation is different. That’s why we strive to offer a customized restoration plan that suits your needs.

What are the Benefits of Full Mouth Restoration?

Unlike single treatment plans, full mouth restoration helps address many issues at once. Damaged teeth or gums are restored, and missing teeth are replaced. This allows us to create a uniform smile for each patient with sturdy and functional teeth. This restored smile provides many benefits, including:

  • Improved Jaw and Bite Structure – Full mouth restorations strengthen your gums and jaw. Stronger gums and jawbones mean you can eat the foods you love again. It can also help reduce headaches, especially for those with Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ).
  • Improved Oral Health – Missing or damaged teeth provide an opportunity for oral infection. By receiving a full mouth restoration, you can reduce your risk and keep your whole mouth healthier.
  • Improved Aesthetics – Damaged teeth show signs of wear and tear. Meanwhile, extracted or missing teeth can cause your cheeks to sink in. Just because a full mouth restoration isn’t solely cosmetic, doesn’t mean it can’t have cosmetic benefit! A full mouth restoration can help beautify your smile AND your face.
  • Improved Self-Esteem – With a mouth full of beautiful teeth, you can feel confident showing your smile again. You can live your best life and not worrying about hiding your smile from friends and family.
