Dental issues rarely stay localized. Over time, a single missing tooth can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and bone loss, which in turn can lead to further missing teeth. Missing or damaged teeth also make it more likely that other teeth will become damaged or decayed, either because of teeth shifting into the space left by a lost tooth or because remaining teeth are experiencing additional wear and tear to make up for the missing teeth. Basically, when dental problems go untreated, the whole system can break down. Once multiple, serious dental health problems need to be addressed, a full mouth reconstruction may be the best option.
Full mouth reconstruction may also be needed after accidents or other facial trauma. From car accidents to sports injuries, patients may be left with multiple cracked teeth, broken teeth, and even missing teeth. When the damage is extensive, a full mouth reconstruction can restore from and function back to a pre-injury state.
