Do You Need a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

A Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Fix Jaw Pain
Jaw pain is one of the most common reasons for full mouth reconstruction, and often, its underlying condition is the reason for your worn, broken, or cracked teeth. Temporomandibular joint disorder or TMJ results when your jaw is misaligned. A few common symptoms of TMJ disorder are headaches, teeth grinding, facial pain, clicking or popping sounds when you open and close your mouth, and the alarming condition of a locked jaw.
The first-line treatment for TMJ is to wear a neuromuscular orthotic that works to correct your jaw position. After your symptoms have left and it’s clear that we’ve found the optimal position for your jaw, the next phase of treatment is to reconstruct your mouth to keep your jaw there at all times without an orthotic. We do this by building up your teeth with porcelain veneers, dental crowns, bridgework, dental implants, and onlays.
You’ll be amazed by how you feel after reconstructing your mouth to hold your jaw in the right position.
