The Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction can have a major impact on your health and on virtually every aspect of your life. Most noticeably, by replacing missing teeth and repairing those that are severely damaged, full mouth reconstruction improve your dental function. You will be able to eat a wide range of foods and, in some cases, enjoy an overall healthier diet. When you choose dental implants, you will not typically have any food restrictions at all. Treatment may also improve your speech, particularly if you are missing teeth in the front of your mouth. Often, full mouth reconstruction can redistribute the balance of your bite, especially if you have sustained dental erosion.
