Full mouth reconstruction, full mouth rehabilitation and full mouth restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.
Full mouth reconstruction typically involves general or restorative dentists and can incorporate dental specialists like periodontists, oral surgeons, orthodontist and endodontists.
Periodontist = specializing in the gum.
Orthodontist = specializing in tooth movement, and positions.
Eudodontist = specializing in the tooth pulp.
The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:
-Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma
-Teeth that have been injured or fractured
-Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding
-Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite (occlusion).
