Full Jaw Restoration: Benefits and Risks

Poor dental health may harm many areas of your life, including your career, social life, personality, and much more. Fortunately, restorative dentistry treatments may restore your oral health and give you a smile that will enhance your oral health and look. Full jaw restoration can make you feel better about how you portray yourself.  

Jaw restoration is a process that corrects dental issues. In this procedure, your dentists use dental implants and screw-retained dentures which look like your natural teeth. Furthermore, a full-jaw restoration entails repairing your gums, jaw, and mouth structure, which are critical to your dental health. 

Here are some benefits and risks of complete jaw restoration that you should know before getting full jaw restoration treatment.

Vaping and oral health


  • Improved oral health: Poor dental health impacts the appearance and function of your teeth and gums. Brushing cracked or crooked teeth is complex, and food gets lodged between spaces in your teeth. A full jaw restoration treatment reduces the risk of oral infections caused by tooth loss or decay.
  • Improved smile: Teeth extraction can cause your gums and face to sink in and develop cracks around your lip. As your teeth and gums deteriorate, your face begins to exhibit indications of age. Full jaw restoration dentistry may help you look younger and enhance your smile.
  • Stops jaw deterioration: Jawbone decay is a result of malnutrition. The body starts to distribute nutrients to other regions when tooth roots are absent from stimulating the jawbone. Other components of the body receive calcium and phosphorus from the bone itself. Jawbone degeneration can affect how your face looks and how well you can speak and dramatically age your appearance.
  • Relieve pressure on the jaw joint: When teeth are missing or worn down, the upper and lower teeth may not fit together properly when the mouth is closed. Therefore, jaw joints may ache as facial muscles move the jaws into a more balanced posture. Pain in the head, neck, and face, as well as tingling in the extremities, are the outcome. When it is out of alignment, it means you have a malocclusion. Full jaw reconstruction corrects malocclusion and provides much-needed relief for the jaw joints and surrounding tissues.
  • Replace missing teeth: Missing teeth can prevent you from applying for jobs and influence your confidence and the general quality of your life. Missing teeth affect the neighboring teeth, causing discomfort, pain, and loss.
  • Reverse the signs of periodontal disease: Full jaw reconstruction frequently prioritizes long-term periodontal disease treatment and management. Periodontal disease is one of the more frequent conditions treated during full jaw reconstruction. Periodontitis is a condition that can result in bone loss within the jaw, discolored gums, gum recession, and deep gum pockets that put teeth at risk of falling out.
  • You can eat whatever you like: Full jaw restoration makes your gums and jaw healthy and strong, which means you can eat whatever you want. Full jaw restoration improves your jaw function and causes fewer headaches.


  • Tooth breakage: A complete jaw reconstruction does not imply that you will never need to see a dentist again. Restorations require the same level of care and upkeep as natural teeth. Replacement crowns, implants, and veneers might fail due to poor oral care, resulting in fractured teeth and infections.  
  • Oral infections: Infections are always dangerous after surgical treatments, including oral surgery. As part of their full jaw restoration, patients with oral surgery must take extra precautions to keep the surgical site clean.  
  • Risk of root canal: Though unusual, a crown might become loose enough for germs to reach the native tooth beneath the treatment. If the tooth becomes infected inside, root canal therapy is the only treatment that may save it from utter failure.  
  • Poor oral health: Full jaw restoration is a big decision because it comes with risks. However, without the operation, your health may face significantly larger dangers. For example, gum disease can cause diabetic problems. If the germs that cause cavities are allowed to multiply, they might enter the bloodstream and create health issues.


Hence, the advantages of a complete jaw reconstruction significantly exceed the risks. Full jaw restoration can provide patients with a lot of significant benefits. Moreover, complete jaw restoration substantially impacts your quality of life, improves oral health, and improves tooth structure to better function and general health.
