FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
The primary goal of a full mouth reconstruction is to return the mouth to state of optimal oral health and well-being, while being aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
A full mouth reconstruction often involves other complex dental procedures, such as:
Root canal therapy
Posts and Cores
Crown lengthening surgery
Bite opening of the vertical dimension
Bite correction and alignment
Use of dental implants
Custom dental abutments
Various dental materials
Treating TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction therapy)
Night guard therapy
Interceptive orthodontic treatment
Other cosmetic procedures.
It is important for the patient to ask a lot of questions and fully understand their treatment plan prior to starting a full mouth reconstruction. This dental treatment is a big commitment in terms of both time and money, and a well-informed patient should be educated to have realistic expectations.
FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION SUCCESS STORY VIDEOS
There are many people who grind their teeth during the day or while sleeping. Grinding, also known as bruxism, can excessively wear the teeth down to a point where they are unsightly and the bite begins to collapse. A collapsed bite not only makes a person look older, it may also lead to other problems with chewing or Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction. Bite restoration is complex and requires knowledge, talent, and experience to know just how much a bite should be raised to complete the full mouth restoration successfully. No two occlusal wear patterns are alike, so we take special precautions with our diagnosis and occlusal analysis before attempting to rehabilitate a mouth that exhibits occlusal wear. Our team has the necessary knowledge and experience to restore worn and collapsed dentitions.
Tooth decay often progresses rapidly and destructively. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as a high sugar diet, drug abuse, or patient neglect. We will never judge you. Our only goal is to help you get back to a state of health where you can be confident and start to smile again. Whatever the cause for rampant decay, the solution is full mouth rehabilitation with porcelain crowns and/or dental implants. All decay/cavities are removed and the teeth are permanently repaired before crowns are placed on the teeth. Once the new crowns are cemented in place, a completely restored, natural looking smile is achieved. Taking the first step and coming in for a consultation is difficult for many people. But once the journey is complete, patients always tell us they can’t believe they waited so long to restore their teeth.
Many people neglect their teeth and fail to seek dental treatment for years. This may be due to dental fears, lack of funds for dental care, or simply not enough time to properly address the problems as the teeth break down or are lost. Many patients are told that their situation is hopeless and that the only solution is full dentures. Before considering dentures, come to the Kurpis Center for a second opinion. You will be amazed at the cutting edge techniques we have available that just may be the answer to avoiding full dentures. When patients feel that they are finally ready to restore their teeth, they can begin their journey towards full mouth reconstruction. At the Kurpis Center, we use a team approach to restore complex mutilated dentitions. Our goal is to restore dental health and function in harmony with esthetics.

ACID EROSION CAUSED BY BULIMIA / GERD / ACIDIC FOODS
Acid erosion is a very destructive process causing rapid and excessive wear of tooth enamel. Once the enamel layer is worn away, the softer dentin layer is exposed and tooth wear and deterioration accelerates. It is not uncommon to see a full mouth of teeth totally destroyed in a relatively short period of time. The four main causes of acid erosion are: a highly acidic diet, drug abuse, stomach acid regurgitation, and bulimia. Our office is trained to manage and repair the destruction caused by acid erosion and support patients with extenuating circumstances contributing to this process. Please do not feel embarrassed. We understand your problem and can help to get your teeth healthy and beautiful again. Teeth destroyed by acid erosion are typically restored with porcelain veneers or full mouth dental crowns. If you suffer from the destructive nature of acid erosion, you no longer need to feel embarrassed or ashamed. Take comfort in knowing that our group of dentists at the Kurpis Center for Advanced Dentistry understands your situation and is here to restore your smile in only a few short visits.
