What Is Involved in a Full Mouth Reconstruction

What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction or rehabilitation is a reconstructive dentistry solution that involves a set of procedures designed to improve your smile’s function and aesthetics. We will consider your teeth and oral issues simultaneously and cohesively. In severe cases, we may need to restore all your teeth.

What Are the Advantages of Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Restoring your smile’s full function not only improves your appearance and self-confidence but also reflects on your overall health. Eliminating harmful bacteria from your mouth limits the spread to other parts of the body, preventing a host of health conditions. Moreover, restoring your teeth’s chewing function will allow for better nutrition, which enhances your overall health. 

Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for You?

Full mouth reconstruction works for patients with severely damaged teeth, extensive decay, advanced periodontal (gum) disease, missing teeth, and worn dental work. Patients with excessive wear from erosion or grinding, crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, poor occlusion (a faulty bite), or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems, may also benefit from this innovative treatment plan. 

What Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Entail?

We will work alongside your healthcare provider to address any underlying health issues affecting your teeth, including acid reflux or sleep apnea. We will also meet with you to evaluate your needs and desired treatment outcomes and will create a personalized treatment plan to deliver real, transformative results. Best of all, you’ll get to see a preview of your new, improved smile.

Your full mouth reconstruction will start with treating any dental problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Achieving your healthy smile may require a combination of procedures, including teeth whitening, dental veneers, bonding, gum recontouring, and orthodontics. You may also need restorative dentistry procedures, including fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, inlays, onlays, or dental implants. 

If you are experiencing jaw problems, you may require TMD treatment, which involves correcting your bite to alleviate your symptoms. If habitual grinding, a condition known as bruxism, is behind your tooth damage, we may recommend a custom mouthguard to protect your smile. 

What Should You Expect During the Process?

Once we develop your fully customized treatment plan, we will start your transformation. The length of time needed to complete your full mouth reconstruction will depend on the complexity of the restorative techniques. It may range from a year to several years to achieve your fully functional results. 

We typically work on one section of your mouth at a time, meaning that you’ll require multiple appointments to achieve your desired results. During each treatment stage, you’ll wear temporary restorations while our dental laboratory fabricates your beautiful, incredibly natural-looking and feeling restorations.
