If you think you may need a full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Balloch will conduct an in-depth consultation with you about your needs, goals, and preferences in order to design a treatment strategy just for you. He will then complete a comprehensive dental examination, including using our intraoral camera to show you what the inside of your mouth looks like in detail. Next, he will review the findings of the examination and explain his recommended treatment plan. Throughout the process, he will use models and wax-ups to plan your restorations based on your input so that your permanent results provide the very best long-term results.
Dr. Balloch has a large gallery of photos of previous patients for you to review. He has won awards for his excellent work in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's Smile Gallery competitions. He may ask you to bring pictures of smiles you admire, or old pictures of yourself that reflect the smile you would like to restore.
"Great doctor! I am very scared of needles and I didn't even feel anything! I highly recommend if you have a needle phobia. The staff is extremely friendly and I wouldn't go anywhere else."
First and foremost, a full mouth reconstruction can resolve severe dental issues, which is extremely important for your health and appearance. Failing to properly treat major dental problems could cause several complications:
- Tooth loss
- Compromised natural facial contours as your skin sags over missing or damaged teeth
- Pronounced signs of aging in the lower third of your face
- Furrows and cracks along your lips
- Increased pressure on your temporomandibular joints (jaw joints), which can cause muscle pain, headaches, and further complications
- Joint disease
- Loss of chewing function, which can stand in the way of proper nutrition
Full mouth reconstruction can help you eat, drink, speak, and smile more comfortably, giving you a better overall quality of life. In addition, Dr. Balloch emphasizes the artistry involved in creating beautiful restorations, so you can experience beautiful, natural-looking results. Having a more aesthetic smile can improve your confidence and self-esteem.
Full mouth reconstruction is a safe treatment, but it can have certain risks if performed improperly:
- Premature failure of restorations, which would require repair or replacement
- Muscle and joint aches and headaches from improper alignment
- Tooth sensitivity
- Broken teeth
- The necessity for a root canal if removing a crown damages the pulp of the tooth
- Increased chance of needing root canal treatment if proper techniques aren't followed
The best way to minimize the risks of any dental procedure is to choose an excellent dentist. Dr. Balloch is an award-winning dentist with exceptional skill and time-proven protocols that give consistent, excellent results. He takes every precaution to minimize the risks of full mouth reconstruction.
