Understanding How Extractions/Tooth Wear Result in the Need for a Smile Rebuild


Are you experiencing a pattern of cracking teeth, worn down molars, or a compromised smile that affects your confidence and quality of life? You’re not alone. Many patients find themselves facing the challenges of tooth extraction, breaking fillings, and subsequent issues like loss of posterior support and changes in tooth height. Let’s delve into the process and understand how full mouth rehabilitation can transform your oral health and confidence.

“Just Extract That Tooth; It’s Cheaper!”

Tooth extractions are sometimes necessary to address a variety of dental issues, including severe decay, infection, trauma, or overcrowding. While a dental extraction is cheap in the short term, when multiple teeth are extracted this can result in expensive long term changes to your bite. Often it is not until later that this becomes more obvious.

The Domino Effect: Anterior Wear and Functional Issues

The loss of posterior support can trigger a domino effect, impacting the function and stability of your entire bite. As the front teeth (anterior) bear the brunt of chewing forces without adequate posterior support, they may begin to wear down prematurely. This can lead to a host of functional issues, including difficulty biting and chewing, jaw pain, and even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Many patients get caught in a cycle of repeatedly repairing broken and cracked fillings and teeth.

Recognizing the Need for Full Mouth Rehabilitation

If you’re experiencing cracked front teeth, worn down molars, or functional issues related to changes in your bite, you may benefit from full mouth rehabilitation. This comprehensive approach to dental care focuses on restoring the health, function, and aesthetics of your entire mouth. Full mouth rehabilitation may involve a combination of treatments, including dental implants, crowns, bridges, and orthodontic therapy, tailored to your specific needs and goals.
