A bright, beautiful smile fills us with confidence. When our smile is not up to par, it can make us self-conscious and adversely affect our self-esteem. Also, having functional issues with your teeth can make eating painful and challenging.
Some procedures help with these issues individually, but a total mouth construction can help you tackle them all at once. A total mouth construction may sound painful and intimidating, but you can have the smile of your dreams when you receive the proper care.
Here is what you can expect with a total mouth reconstruction.
What will It Fix?
Total mouth reconstruction helps to correct multiple oral issues that you're experiencing. It's vital to address these issues to improve your oral health. These problems can range from:
- Broken teeth and missing teeth
- Lost teeth
- Or hampered chewing function
What Does Mouth Reconstruction Involve?
Total mouth reconstruction can involve several dental procedures.
Depending on what your dentist recommends, you can receive:
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
- And veneers
However, the procedures that your dentist recommends as part of your reconstruction depend on the evaluation of your mouth.
How Bad Does It Hurt?
Going to the dentist is a common fear among people. The uncertainty of the kind of care they receive is what people commonly fear about the dentist. Also, seeing the instruments at the dentist's disposal can make you believe that pain is around the corner. It may be somewhat intimidating to hear that you might need a total mouth reconstruction. However, your dentist will take precautions to ensure that your procedure is as pain-free as possible. Your dentist can accomplish this through a local anesthesia injection to your inner cheek or gum. This injection can be momentarily painful, but you should not feel much discomfort after this.
How Much Does It Cost?
Many people avoid proper dental care because they are worried about the cost. The expenses your reconstruction accumulates are contingent on how extensive the work is.
