Full Mouth Reconstruction Q&A

What is a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction involves multiple procedures to restore the look and function of your teeth, gums, and jaws. A full mouth reconstruction isn’t a strictly cosmetic procedure; candidates for a full mouth reconstruction need restoration and rehabilitation to eat, chew, speak, and maintain their oral health. But a full mouth reconstruction can also improve the appearance of your smile, jawline, or facial shape.

Why would I need a full mouth reconstruction?

If you have dental problems that prevent you from functioning normally or cause you ongoing pain or discomfort, you should consider a full mouth reconstruction. Candidates for this procedure may have one or more of the following conditions: 

  • One or more missing teeth
  • Damaged or broken teeth
  • Periodontal (gum) issues
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Worn teeth
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome
  • Pain or popping in your jaw

Your skilled dentist at Bell Family Dental PC determines if you’re a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction with a comprehensive consultation, including a dental exam and X-rays. Once your dentist confirms your candidacy, they design a custom treatment plan to address your needs.

What does full mouth reconstruction involve?

Your personalized treatment plan involves multiple steps and procedures and may take several months to complete. Some restorative dentistry services require temporary dental prosthetics while a special lab fabricates your artificial teeth. Your dentist may also need to address cavities or an infection or perform pre-procedure preparations before beginning restorative treatments.

Depending on your needs, your plan may include:

  • Deep teeth cleaning, also known as scaling
  • Crowns 
  • Veneers
  • Bridges
  • Braces and other orthodontic treatments
  • Gum treatments
  • Bone grafting
  • Dental implants

In some cases, jaw surgery may be necessary for complete restoration and rehabilitation.

What are the benefits of a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction takes time, but the procedure offers a dramatic transformation for both your health and appearance. Improving your oral health has an impact on your overall health, and you can enjoy the boost of confidence that comes with your stunning new smile for many years after your restoration procedure.
