Why Full- Mouth Reconstruction?
If you have lost teeth due to decay or trauma, have teeth that have been injured or fractured teeth that over time have become severely worn, you may be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction. As the causes may vary, we find that patients of varying ages in the Brazoria and Lake Jackson area determine that full-mouth restoration is right for them. While the aesthetic benefits are often first on patients' minds when considering reconstruction, there are multiple health benefits as well. Adjustments to the bite or occlusion during treatment bring relief to patients dealing with ongoing jaw, muscle and headache pain. Properly aligned teeth also reduce the risk of oral infections, tooth decay, and gum disease.

How the Process Begins
The first step is scheduling a comprehensive examination. With an accurate understanding of your current oral health, we can proceed with treatment specific to your needs. During the exam, x-rays, photographs, and impressions of your upper and lower teeth will be recorded. Four main areas will be examined:
- Teeth: The condition of your teeth will help Dr. Osga determine which option will best help you achieve your goals. We will also make a note of any cavities and decay tooth wear, cracks, varying length in teeth, root canal issues and any tooth movement.
- Periodontal (gum) tissues: Healthy gums are an integral part of strong, healthy teeth. Dr. Osga will carefully examine your gums looking for deep pockets, excessive or insufficient gum tissue, periodontal disease, and bone density irregularities. This necessary step to improve the health of your gums and jaw bone will ensure that your newly reconstructed teeth have a solid foundation.
- Temporomandibular joints, jaw muscles and occlusion: During your examination, Dr. Osga will take a close look at the alignment of your bite, it’s also important to note if you experience any pain or discomfort when you close your mouth or chew. If there are any bite abnormalities or discomfort, it’s possible that orthodontics or some other type of bite treatment may be required before you proceed with additional restorative procedures.
