Full mouth reconstruction–Port City Family Dentistry

In cases of intense decay or damage to a great number of a person’s teeth, he or she may want to consider full mouth reconstruction. This process is exactly what it sounds like – all of the teeth, and rarely the jaw, are reconstructed. Such a process takes a long time to complete and requires constant post-operation care to maintain the state of all of the new false teeth. The same materials used in crowns and bridges are used here – gold and porcelain, though more often the latter than the former. In the event that a person’s jaw was malformed at birth or otherwise misshapen, he or she may get full mouth reconstructive surgery to correct for an under, over, or cross bite. This typically involves breaking bones in the jaw with precision and putting them back together, often times with miniature screws.
