Imagine you are a middle-aged patient or senior citizen who hasn’t spent much time at the dentist throughout your life. It’s possible that your mouth is ravaged by gum disease, tooth decay, and worn-down teeth. You have trouble chewing due to some discomfort, or possibly even due to the loss of one or more teeth. This is a common scenario that regularly affects our adult patients.
Maybe you are this patient. If you are, we can help. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort due to gum disease, tooth decay, worn enamel, or otherwise damaged or missing teeth, you aren’t alone. Our Encino, CA dental team has the solution for you. We offer full-mouth reconstruction services that allow us to completely rebuild your smile. If you want to renew your smile and turn it into something you can be proud of, you have come to the right place.
What causes total oral health decline?
There are many factors that can contribute to the total oral health decline of a patient. The first and most prevalent factor is time. As we age, our teeth become more and more worn down due to simple everyday use. This damage can be amplified by untreated problems such as bruxism (the unconscious grinding or clenching of teeth). It is natural to expect some damage over time, and most people do experience this.
Another factor that usually contributes to total oral health decline is a lack of dental care. Typically, patients who come in for full-mouth procedures are patients who haven’t been able to get the dental health care they have needed. These patients, for one reason or another, often haven’t visited the dentist regularly for many years. They have missed vital cleanings and examinations to catch small issues before they became larger ones — resulting in the larger full-mouth problems we see on a regular basis.
Why is total oral health decline a problem?
When you experience the kind of oral health decline we’re talking about, it’s really hard to miss. You will often notice discomfort, sensitivity, pain, bleeding gums, broken teeth, or teeth that come loose entirely, among other symptoms. This general discomfort usually doesn’t go unnoticed and typically is what may bring you to our office to begin with. Obviously, being uncomfortable is an inconvenience — and can even be debilitating if you are in enough pain — so we want to help.
In addition to general discomfort, a mouth ravaged by gum disease and other problems can actually be linked to other systemic issues such as cardiovascular disease and inflammation throughout the body. In general, poor oral health indicates poor overall health. Let us restore your oral health and reconstruct your mouth so that you can eat right and live the life you want to live.
