Owasso Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Are you tired of suffering from the embarrassment and physical pain of a damaged smile? Now may be the perfect time to give your smile a fresh start by getting full-mouth reconstruction.
Full-mouth reconstruction is a complex treatment plan of all the restorative procedures you need to enjoy a healthy and well-functioning bite. Depending on your exact treatment needs, your plan may include dental crowns, fillings, implants, or dental bridges. These treatments will replace missing teeth and rebuild damaged ones to give you a smile that looks great and, more importantly, allows you to speak and chew with ease and comfort.
How Full-Mouth Reconstruction Can Help You
Full-mouth reconstruction is necessary when there is extensive damage to your teeth. You may need reconstruction if your teeth are so damaged that you cannot chew foods properly or if you frequently suffer from dental pain because of extensive tooth decay, gum disease, an injury, or enamel loss. Such damage is common in people who haven’t been able to take care of their dental health for many years.
Full-mouth restoration may also be an excellent solution if you suffer from TMJ pain. Restoring lost and damaged teeth will balance out your bite and help your jaw to function better.
Ultimately, full-mouth reconstruction will make your mouth feel and look better, and help you enjoy a better quality of life.
Full-Mouth Restoration by Dr. Lim—What to Expect
First, Dr. Lim will perform a comprehensive dental evaluation. This will include necessary digital dental X-rays and a CT scan of your jaw. Based upon his clinical findings, Dr. Lim will tell you which restorative treatments he recommends. He will explain the rationale for his recommendations and let you know what your treatment alternatives are.
After discussing your dental health needs and cosmetic dental preferences, Dr. Lim will draw up your complete treatment plan and your full-mouth reconstruction process will begin when you’re ready.
This process is not an instant smile makeover. Depending on your unique treatment needs, it can take a few months to completely restore your smile to a state of health. Our team at Life Smiles of Owasso will guide you through each step until you achieve your dental health goals.
Dr. Lim’s Qualifications
The skills needed to perform full-mouth reconstruction are not part of the regular dental school curriculum, so Dr. Lim has chosen to pursue additional studies for this complex treatment process. Dr. Lim’s extra education includes studies in neuromuscular dentistry at the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. This is an institute dedicated to training dentists in full-mouth rehabilitation and cosmetic dentistry. After a number of courses there, Dr. Lim was awarded Fellow status.
Dr. Lim is also a member of the International Association of Physiologic Aesthetics and of the Facial Beauty Institute, two organizations that provide additional perspective into this complex area of dentistry.
Dr. Lim has been treating cases of TMJ pain since 2003, primarily with non-surgical and medication-free methods like full-mouth reconstruction. Additionally, as a dentist who focuses on whole-body health, he recommends restorative dental treatment with a comprehensive view of how it can positively impact the rest of the body.
