Dr. Beckham on Full-mouth Reconstruction Read Transcript
People ask at times, " What is full-mouth reconstruction?" and you think, " Good Lord, full-mouth reconstruction." I mean, to me, it sounds awful. " Dear Lord, what's going to happen? Are they going to tear this down, that down?" What full-mouth reconstruction really means is something different to everybody. It could mean that you have a mouthful of crowns that we have to do. It could mean that we do dentures and partials. It could mean that we do implants. It could mean that we do bonding. When we say, " reconstruct," usually what we're talking about is people that have had so much dental deterioration that their vertical dimension, which is their face, shrinks because the teeth are worn, chipped, broken, or decayed. So, we think about in terms of opening that vertical dimension up. If we think of that, each one of us is an art form, and we are designed to be -- our faces -- constructed as thirds. When that lower face height is decreased because of loss of teeth or tooth structure, then your whole appearance changes. So, in my mind, reconstruction means opening that vertical dimension, getting the face back where it needs to be, and doing that by restoring the teeth. The smile is all part of that, but so oftentimes people underestimate what those teeth do to create the art form of your face and your personality, your profile.
Beckham Dental has made it our mission to help people who have nowhere else to turn. Some of our patients in the Cave Creek, AZ community had multiple issues robbing their mouths of function and beauty. We’ve been able to restore their entire mouth with a full-mouth reconstruction, and we can help you if you are in the same position.
