When Your Mouth Is Under Construction | Riverside Dentist

When you have multiple dental issues, you will need multiple dental procedures in order to fix it. In fact, there is a term for this – a full mouth reconstruction. As the name suggests, full mouth reconstruction is a process where the patient’s mouth undergoes a series of treatment to restore the mouth’s function and structure.

Because it is a combination of restorative, neuromuscular and cosmetic procedures, a full mouth reconstruction’s goal is to not only restore and improve the look of the patient’s teeth, but its structure and overall function.

Most of the time, a full mouth restoration is recommended for those who have a lot of missing teeth, and those who have several discolored, worn out, chipped and broken teeth. It may also be necessary for those who’ve been experiencing chronic pain, or a clicking or popping sound in their jaws, or suffering from frequent headaches and back pain may also benefit from a full mouth reconstruction.

To know the scope of the full mouth reconstruction, it is best to have your dentist evaluate the overall status of your oral health to get a better idea on what type of treatments are necessary or available. After this, your dentist will be able to discuss with you the different types of treatment available, depending on what goals you have in mind. Be honest and don’t forget to ask about the overall costs of the procedure, as well as what your dental insurance covers. Ask for a timeframe for the whole process and any other questions you may have in order to be confident in your future treatments.

Don’t Dodge the Dentist | Dentist in Riverside, CA

According to recent statistics, more than 51 million hours of school are lost each year by children due to dental related illnesses. As for adults, statistics have proven that employed adults lose more that 164 million hours of work each year due to oral health problems. That is a lot of hours! Not only can a student’s grades slip, but all the time missed could lead to issues at work. How do we prevent this from happening? Visit the dentist. I know it sounds simple but having regular dental cleanings can drastically reduce these dental issues by about fifty percent!

To put it very basically, getting your teeth professionally cleaned and examined is your way of taking preventative measures to ensuring that your dental health is the best it can be. Because you can brush your teeth all you want, but if you aren’t doing it correctly or enough, it will show. These teeth cleanings will fully examine your oral hygiene in order to suggest any changes that may need to be made. If you are a patient that only visits the dentist when something is hurting, you can not only be causing further dental issues, but even more conditions to your overall health. After all, your mouth is the first line of defense for your entire body. In order to avoid the life-threatening consequence of poor oral health, make sure to pay your dental professional a visit at least twice a year. Thorough teeth cleanings will enhance your smile and ensure you and your child remain in school and at work!
