One of the first things that a person notices when they meet someone is their mouth and teeth. It is also the highlight of most photographs, and the picture taker will almost always ask for a smile. Are you embarrassed by the way your teeth or mouth appear? There are many things that can detract from a smile over time including trauma, grinding, staining, erosion due to reflux, and so forth. Full mouth reconstruction is a way to give a person back his or her self-confidence.
What are some of the aesthetic benefits of full mouth reconstruction?
1. Appearance of Mouth
A full mouth reconstruction can repair damaged or worn down teeth. It allows you to have a full set of top and bottom teeth that are uniform in color, shape, and size. Gaps are no longer visible, broken teeth are repaired or covered, and unsightly stains are hidden away or professionally cleared away.
2. Sound of Chewing
Full mouth reconstruction can also involve taking care of a person’s jaw. This should take care of any clicking sound that occurs while chewing. For many, this can make it embarrassing to eat around others. It also causes pain and can make the eating experience less enjoyable. Thus, there is a two-fold benefit.
3. Better Breath
Having your teeth in order makes it far easier to keep them clean. When teeth are clean and there is no place for bacteria to hide, it results in better smelling breath. Cleaner teeth, however, mean more than just better breath. Good oral health also decreases risk of heart disease and other conditions that can be caused by poor dental hygiene.
4. Improved Sleep Patterns
A healthy mouth will allow you to get more restful sleep than if you are constantly in pain. You do not have to think long to recognize the aesthetic value of sleep, plus dark circles under a person’s eyes are never appealing! You can always tell when a person is well rested versus someone who had a rough night (or several years’ worth of nights with poor sleep).
5. Increased Sense of Well-Being
When someone is happy and confident, it is easy to tell. Such a good sense of well-being is very attractive, and with a picture perfect smile, you will always be the first one to smile for the camera. Improved self-esteem results in positive feelings of self, and that is a contagious good feeling which will make people want to be around you. A brand new smile could be the key to a happier, healthier new you. Talk with your dentist about full mouth reconstruction today.
