What Should You Consider Before Having Tooth Restoration?
Teeth are a small but functional part of our body. Taking care of your teeth is an important part of personal hygiene and general healthy habits that should be practiced daily. Taking care of your teeth is simple.
You should brush them every day. Some people brush twice a day, and some even floss twice a day. It is recommended by our clinic to brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day.
If you do not practice dental hygiene, you may have cavities, which are holes, in your tooth, which can be very painful. If you are a sweet lover, you should be careful. Overeating sugary foods such as sweets can also cause cavities. There are also other serious dental problems such as oral cancer, TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorder, ectodermal dysplasia, Dentinogenesis Imperfecta and Amelogenesis. Some people are born with these diseases, while others may develop these problems as they get older and need more complex dental procedures, such as a full mouth restoration. Even something as simple as your bites snapping together, which seemed insignificant when you were younger, overtime can cause severe tooth wear, cracked or cracked teeth, and require full mouth restoration if neglected for too long.
A full mouth restoration is the process of replacing or reconstructing all or many of the teeth in your mouth. The procedure can sometimes involve a team of specialists, including orthodontists, periodontists, endodontists, oral surgeons and general dentists. However, most patients can be treated comfortably under one roof in our clinic. Our specialist dentists can plan your complete oral restoration from start to finish, taking into account all aspects of your oral health during the planning process to achieve successful results. The full mouth restoration procedure is not for everyone, but if you have multiple missing teeth, severely decayed teeth, broken or cracked teeth, and bruxism, you may be eligible. Bruxism is the habit of teeth grinding.
It is recommended that you visit the nearest dental clinic to be sure if you need a full mouth restoration. This procedure can be very invasive in some patients as certain parts of the oral cavity need to be replaced. In such a case, the patient may need dental implants, bridges, veneers, crowns, among other dental restorative treatments. A dentist should review the following to see if you need a full mouth restoration procedure.
Teeth: The extent of the damage to your teeth will determine the type of treatment you will be given. The dentist here will look for cavities, cracks, short or long teeth, and loose teeth. Your problem can be solved with veneer or porcelain veneer treatment.
Gum tissues: Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Traditional treatments for gum disease include scaling and root planing. In more serious cases, such as uneven bone density, excess or less gum tissue may require you to go for a full mouth restoration.
Temporomandibular Joint disorder: The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects the jaw to the temporal bones of the skull, located in front of the ears. This is the joint that enables you to chew, speak, and all other jaw movements. TMJ disorders can cause pain and damage to your teeth. Jaw pain is one of the symptoms of a TMJ disorder if you are currently experiencing this condition, visiting a dentist immediately.
Aesthetics: The relationship of shape, color, size and proportion between your teeth and your face. How do your teeth look from both sides of your face? The dentist should consider these factors.
Other things will also be needed, such as X-rays of the mouth and jaw, to see the extent of the damage and to guide the team of dentists who will perform the treatment.
Even if you were not born with dental problems, you can develop dental problems and dental disease as you age. There are many factors that affect your mouth and teeth, from daily oral health habits and eating habits to jaw position and bite. Over time, these problems can develop and cause even worse problems for your health. It’s never too late to restore your smile, and it’s never too early to start establishing good oral health habits. Simple habits like waiting 20-30 minutes after a meal before brushing your teeth can make a big difference, according to the Turkish Dental Association. Maintain your perfect smile by practicing simple daily dental hygiene and health habits.
