Full mouth reconstruction,FMR, is one of the most involved and complex procedures in dentistry. Reconstruction repairs worn down, broken, and severely damaged teeth to the jaw, facial, and full mouth structures. There are a variety of options available for patients seeking a restored smile.

  • Accidents or Injury: Damage to the mouth or loss of teeth.
  • Advanced Tooth Decay
  • Aggressive Tooth Wear
  • Bruxism: Teeth grinding.
  • Dental Disease: Infected gums due to gingivitis or periodontal disease.
  • Faulty Restorations
  • Gum Disease: Bacteria infection in the spaces between teeth and gums.
  • Misaligned bite (overbite or crossbite)
  • TMJ or Jaw Pain: Pain in the jaw or headaches resulting from jaw misalignment (malocclusion).
  • Tooth Erosion: Teeth have become very worn down.
  • Trauma
