Full mouth reconstructions are needed occasionally when somebody has wide spread dental damage, or a very fundamental dental malocclusion or problem. I use malocclusion because it's a term that refers to a bite that's gone bad, or is not correct. So you got to restore the whole way the bite sits in the head. When you get into something like that, you have to adjust the upper teeth and the lower teeth to meet in a different location. It requires a lot of times the reconstruction of all the teeth, hence the name full mouth reconstruction. You may get in there and you have to trim all the teeth, both arches at the same time, so that you can place all the crowns and bridges or whatever restorations you're putting in there, to change the entire fundamental plain or position of the bite and how the smile sits in there. Full mouth reconstruction is a very tricky thing. It's not widely done, but when it's needed, it's really needed. Careful control over how that goes is extremely important, because you can create as many problems as you can solve with one, if you don't get it just right. There are devices and technologies and techniques behind that, that make that thing very predictable and very slickly and carefully controlled, that once applied, can get you a tremendous outcome. If you're in need of something like that, we're a good office to have behind that, because it's a situation that requires not just a few teeth at a time or just a row at a time, but it may require the reconstruction of the entire set at once. That being said, you need to have someone with a team of people that are comfortable with and are very familiar with how to shift this around in there, without creating other problems.
