The art of Full Mouth Reconstruction or FMR, allows Dr. Fernandez to fully rebuild worn, broken down teeth to ideal proportions and function. For many adults, years of mis-matched crowns, fillings, and other dental work can change the bite so significantly, that the teeth function poorly. For others, years of grinding and wear have left the teeth short and flat. With FMR, not only are the teeth and bite restored, but also mid-face wrinkles or deep lines can be eliminated. Mid-face lines around the nose and mouth can be caused by a collapsed bite and worn down teeth. FMR rebuilds the teeth and bite, which in turn supports and fills in the mid-face tissues and thereby give a young look to the face.
The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:
- Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
- Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
- 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).
