At Beverly Hills Dental Center, Dr. Eshegian is a specialist in Full Mouth Reconstructions. As a matter of fact, his specialty was Restorative Dentistry at the University of Southern California. As the name implies, Full Mouth Reconstruction is the process of restoring the mouth including the teeth, gums and jaw to a fully functioning state after years of wear or degenerative oral health. There can also be various reasons why a Full Mouth Reconstruction may be necessary. The reasons include prolonged bruxism, damaged, fractured teeth or missing teeth. Also, missing or damaged teeth due to a sudden trauma such as an accident. The teeth can also become eroded over time due to the type of foods or drinks the patient has consumed over a lifetime, this is referred to as acid erosion. Lastly, in rare instances, the actual development of the jaw and teeth will grow in such a way that will require a reconstruction to treat severe head or jaw pain which if left untreated will lead to a lifetime of discomfort and pain.
A Full Mouth Reconstruction is a procedure that spans several steps. In general, the focus of this extensive procedure can be broken down to three different areas. The first is the teeth which can involve many Restorative steps. Depending on the condition of the patient’s Oral Health, Restorations can include: veneers, crowns, dental implants, inlays and onlays, crowns etc. Depending on the condition of each tooth, different restorations are prescribed. Secondly, the focus will be on the Gums and again depending on the condition of the Gums different issues and procedures will be used and addressed. In general, pockets between the teeth and gum begin to develop. This condition is addressed with scaling and root planning with the purpose of restoring the gums back to health. Lastly, the condition of the Jaw is the focus addressing any TMJ or TMD issues. TMD or TMJ is a condition where closing or opening the Jaw becomes painful due to a misconfiguration of the lower Jaw and the Cheek bone. While this condition can be inherited and fixed, a Full Mouth Reconstruction requires that any misalignment is addressed before the entire procedure can be considered complete.
