Full Mouth Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Restoration in Toronto
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Missing, cracked, and chipped teeth are just a few of the problems that can negatively affect our appearance and overall well-being. When it comes to the point that a full set of teeth on the upper and lower jaw is what is required to restore a smile, full mouth reconstruction may be the best solution. Full mouth reconstruction, also known as full mouth rehabilitation or full mouth restoration, is a process in which a patient’s entire system of the mouth and oral structures is considered, taking into account chewing, speech, smiling, joint health, and longevity of the result.
Full mouth reconstruction can be completed on natural teeth, implants, or on a combination. Patients requiring reconstruction have often lost one or more teeth in the past, and implants can be added to fill these spaces – with the new crowns and implant crowns all fabricated to work in harmony and match perfectly. At Periodontal Specialists, we provide safe, comfortable, and thorough full mouth restorations.
