Full Mouth Reconstruction Focused on Overall Oral Health
Dr. Maryam Motlagh understands that an aesthetically pleasing smile begins with a solid foundation. During a full mouth reconstruction at her Portland, OR, office, Dr. Motlagh can perform multiple restorative procedures to treat underlying alignment issues and restore balance to your jaw. After she has helped you achieve optimal oral health, she can address the aesthetics of your smile. Full mouth reconstruction can be a great option if you have suffered extensive dental damage because the treatment can address multiple issues. Contact Aesthetic Smiles℠ to find out if this treatment is right for you.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction combines two or more restorative procedures, and can replace missing teeth, repair dental damage, and strengthen and protect weakened teeth. It can be a great option if you have suffered significant decay. Additionally, it may be beneficial if you suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, because the condition can lead to chronic grinding and clenching of teeth, and significant dental damage. Some patients also choose to incorporate cosmetic treatments as well.
The procedures we recommend will depend on your health and goals. Dr. Motlagh will help you make informed decisions and choose treatments that promote long-term oral wellness. Common options include:
- Inlays and onlays
- Implants (placed by a trusted oral surgeon)
Benefits of Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction can have far-reaching results. Because Dr. Motlagh takes a comprehensive approach that includes bite alignment, your treatment can reduce facial pain, temporal headaches, and the other symptoms of TMJ disorders in addition to addressing decay. Reconstruction can also improve your oral function, particularly if you have missing or severely weakened teeth.
How We View Full Mouth Reconstruction
At Aesthetic Smiles℠, our main focus is on restoring a healthy balance to your smile. With improper alignment or ongoing decay, you will continue to suffer additional damage to both restorations and your natural teeth. By addressing your oral foundation first, Dr. Motlagh can improve both function and appearance, and achieve long-lasting results.
Our team will begin with a comprehensive diagnosis to determine the cause of dental damage. Along with a physical exam, Dr. Motlagh may recommend a computerized jaw analysis and computerized tomography (CT) scans. A certified radiologist will read and evaluate the images to determine the extent of damage and dental issues.
We use advanced materials to ensure that your restorations are both durable and lifelike.
Dr. Motlagh will create a unique treatment plan for your needs. If your dental issues are caused by bite problems, she will address those using a distinctive approach. Other practitioners might restore damaged teeth alone or reshape your teeth to fit an oral appliance for treatment of teeth grinding or TMJ disorders. In contrast, Dr. Motlagh first provides restorative treatments to rebuild your teeth and restore your oral foundation to optimal function. A mouthguard will then be fitted to your restored smile, ensuring a long-lasting change to your oral health.
We use advanced materials to ensure that your restorations are both durable and lifelike. Dr. Motlagh will also make sure that your restorations maintain your healthy, restored jaw alignment, allowing you to experience optimal results. After she has restored your tooth and jaw structure, Dr. Motlagh can perform any desired cosmetic procedures to complete your reconstruction.
