A full mouth reconstruction is a process of rebuilding or restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaw. Full mouth reconstruction can include a variety of dental procedures. It is typically reserved for patients who have multiple oral health issues or those who have experienced a traumatic injury. It includes a combination of restorative, cosmetic, and general dentistry treatments to restore both the function and health of your smile.
Restoring your beautiful smile is no small task. It requires specialized training, which is why it’s beneficial to choose a dentist who is certified in advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures. This ensures they have the skills and training necessary to help you create a plan that addresses all of your needs. It also ensures you get the best possible results when you undergo full mouth reconstruction.
If you have lost several teeth due to trauma or decay, you might benefit from partial dentures. These can replace multiple missing teeth to provide you with a functional smile that allows you to eat and speak properly. If some of your remaining teeth are also damaged, your dentist might recommend dental implants to fully restore your smile.
Once you’ve addressed any immediate issues, we can design a plan that addresses all of your aesthetic and functional concerns. This may include tooth-colored fillings, porcelain crowns, or even veneers to improve the shape, color, alignment, and overall appearance of your smile. During your consultation, our dentist will carefully evaluate the state of your oral health, discuss your goals and expectations, and create a personalized treatment plan that addresses all of your needs.
By identifying any issues early on, we can create a treatment plan that supports the long-term health and function of your smile. This can help prevent further damage and the need for additional dental work in the future. While a full mouth reconstruction can be a large investment, restorations are often essential for restoring your oral health, as well as your confidence and quality of life.
Typically, the process for full-mouth reconstruction begins with a full examination with your dentist. Your dentist will examine your oral health to determine which procedures you will need. Then, the dentist will work with you to create a treatment plan that is right for you and your specific needs. The treatment plan may include a combination of treatments from different categories according to your unique case.
Treatment time can vary, depending on your oral health needs. If gum disease is present or your teeth are severely worn or damaged, restorations like crowns and bridges may be combined with treatments such as periodontal therapy. The length of your treatment will also depend on how many teeth need to be restored. Teeth in a “smile zone” of your mouth will be restored first, followed by teeth in functional areas. For example, front teeth are usually restored before back teeth. Once all teeth have been restored, the bite will be carefully evaluated, and all adjustments will be made to provide the best function and comfort possible.
