Teeth can become worn down over time, presenting a variety of problems. If they have been worn down severely (such as through grinding/clenching), the jaw may become misaligned. The jaw can then over close due to the shorter teeth, causing the jaw muscles to be constantly engaged. This is not the natural position of the mouth and can lead to jaw pain, neck pain, headaches, and other symptoms. A change in jaw alignment can also create a sunken face appearance, making you look older. A full-mouth reconstruction at KK Dental can help to rebuild the teeth to their correct size, shape, and position utilizing a combination of crowns, veneers, bridges, and dental implants. With a full-mouth reconstruction, you can enjoy not just the appearance of a more attractive smile, but also your restored ability to speak and chew normally again. You may also find that your oral health will improve.
