Full Mouth Reconstructions

Full mouth reconstruction typically involves us performing multiple procedures like crowns, bridges and veneers, and can incorporate referrals to dental specialists like periodontists (specialising in the gums), oral surgeons, orthodontists (specialising in tooth movements and positions) and endodontists (specialising in the tooth pulp).

The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:

  • Teeth lost due to decay or trauma
  • Injured or fractured teeth
  • Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding
  • Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite (occlusion).

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth usually emerge from your gums in your late teens and early twenties. They are the last of the large grinding teeth at the back of your mouth (molars). Some people never develop wisdom teeth, other people have up to four – one in each corner of the mouth.

For most people, wisdom teeth don’t cause any problems and there is no need to remove them. However, if there isn’t enough space for them to grow at the back of your mouth they become ‘impacted’, causing pain, swelling and/or infection.

Having your impacted wisdom teeth surgically removed (extracted) can relieve these symptoms. It may be possible for us to remove your wisdom teeth, or you may be referred to an oral surgeon.
