When you were in your younger, you may have neglected your teeth by eating too many sweets and drinking a bit too much alcohol. You may even have forgotten to brush once or twice before collapsing into bed after a long night out. To top it all off, you rarely made it to your 6-month preventative dentistry cleaning appointments. That left you with quite a few fillings and crowns. Flash forward — those fillings are failing, other teeth have cavities, some are chipped and worn down.

If you have tooth issues piling up, you need a great dentist who can provide a full mouth reconstruction in just a few visits. Dr. Nehawandian is here for you. Whether you experienced trauma or have too many worn down teeth, failing crowns, or a collapsed bite, we can help.

Decay or Trauma

In some cases, our patients used to have a healthy bite. However, other factors stepped in to change that, whether it was an accident or decay over the years. When your teeth go through trauma, we usually replace your teeth instead of trying to repair them. With decay, we often see cavities forming, fillings and crowns failing, and other teeth stepping in to take more of the load — which then leads to worn teeth and collapsed smiles. Instead of fixing each tooth, one at a time, we sometimes recommend a full mouth reconstruction at Top Down Dental.

TMJ Leads to Full Mouth Reconstruction

TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) can have a variety of causes and one is an imbalanced bite. When your bite is out of place, your muscles are working extra hard to find a comfortable resting position to no avail. Soon, your teeth will start wearing down, chipping, or showing visible cracks. They may even crack open, down to the root, which could lead to tooth extraction.

Therefore, getting a full mouth reconstruction can actually improve your bite, eradicating your TMJ. This, in turn, gives you a better smile and a rested jaw. Not only will you have a new set of sparkling white teeth, but, more importantly, your muscles will be more relaxed when chewing and speaking.
