Full mouth reconstruction is recommended if you have experienced disease, severe trauma, or infection in your oral cavity. The procedure incorporates various dental treatments that collectively restore your smile. Full mouth reconstruction uses restorative, cosmetic, and neuromuscular procedures to correct any chronic dental issue within your mouth.
Besides reconstructing your teeth, full mouth reconstruction also involves restoring your gums, jaw, and overall structure of your mouth.
What Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Include?
The first step to this treatment is consultation. During your appointment, we will discuss your primary concerns and goals. It also includes seeking details such as your medical history, lifestyle factors, current medications, underlying disease, etc. If you have dental anxiety, we will use sedation throughout the procedure to avoid pain and discomfort.
The consultation also includes conducting a comprehensive neck, oral, and head examination. We will check the condition of your teeth, state of your gums, bite alignment, and overall appearance of your smile.
- Impressions and Records
We will take all the required records and impressions of your oral cavity, including images, X-ray scans, and impressions of your teeth.
- Designing your Smile
We will create a digital design of the current position of your teeth and what it will look like after the treatment. With the help of a 3D model, we will create the possible results of the dental restoration. It will let you understand the results of your treatment beforehand.
- Creation of Treatment Plan
With the help of results obtained from records, models, and visual examination, we will discuss all the essential procedures and treatments that you may have to undergo to improve your smile and tooth functionality.
Some of the procedures that we perform under full mouth reconstruction are orthodontic treatments, root canal therapy, removal of your damaged or infected teeth, periodontal treatment to treat your gums, placement of dental restorations such as veneers, crowns, or implants.
Full mouth reconstruction also includes the procedures such as TMJ treatment, corrective jaw surgery, and placement of implant-supported dentures.
- Final Treatment
After designing and discussing your plan, we will move to the last part of the procedure – the treatment. Full mouth reconstruction doesn’t happen in one sitting. You may have to visit us multiple times for several procedures.
For instance, dental implants require a healing time of a few months. During the treatment, we will also work on your dental restorations and create them perfectly to fit your mouth.
