In fact, with full-mouth reconstruction you can have a flawless, five-star smile that makes you look healthy, younger, smarter, and like a VIP.

What’s the Definition of Worn-Out Teeth?

Our teeth naturally take some of the brunt of aging. We don’t have to accept the inevitable, however. In fact, it’s a good idea if you don’t. If you have neglected your oral health and are allowing your teeth to simply fall apart, you’re setting yourself up for serious oral health problems, including pain, lost teeth, and more.

Worn-out teeth don’t look the same on everyone but if you’re dealing with any of the following issues, you’re putting yourself at risk for major dental demise, especially if you have more than one of these problems. Get attention for your teeth and gums immediately with full-mouth reconstruction – it’s the smartest route you can take.

  • Tooth pain: If you have a constant ache or shooting pain in your teeth, you may be living with tooth decay or an infection which can require a tooth-colored filling or root canal therapy. This problem will not go away on its own and will only get worse over time. Leave the problem too long and you could eventually need a tooth extraction.
  • Mouth pain: Mouth pain is different than tooth pain. If your jaw hurts or makes a popping sound or if you have chronic pain, you may have a TMJ problem. You could do serious damage to your teeth if you clench or grind your teeth – it’s not just your jaw that’s in trouble, you’re risking worn tooth enamel, gum recession, damaged dental work, and more. Neuromuscular treatments can ease the discomfort and prevent complications from developing.
  • Broken or chipped teeth: If you have a tooth that looks damaged on the surface but isn’t causing you any pain, you may be tempted to just let the problem go. After all, you can live with one wonky tooth. Unfortunately, cracks and breaks, no matter how miniscule, leaves your teeth susceptible to bacteria and, eventually, big dental problems.
  • Worn tooth enamel: Tooth enamel not only makes your teeth look nice, they protect the all-important insides of your teeth, preventing them from being touched by food particles, bacteria, plaque, and more. Over the years, enamel can begin to wear down, especially if you clench or grind your teeth. You may also be someone who has naturally thin tooth enamel. Both characteristics make you more likely to develop dental problems.

Get Full-Mouth Reconstruction and Get Your Smile Back

Besides the pain you’re experiencing or any aesthetic issues, if you have difficulty eating or speaking and your teeth are loose, you are likely exhibiting signs of gum disease. Full-mouth reconstruction is the rehabilitation of your oral health through several restorative dentistry procedures, cosmetic dentistry procedures, and neuromuscular treatments, like gum disease therapy, dental implants, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, dental bridges, dental bonding, and more.
