Full mouth reconstruction refers to the process of completely restoring all of the teeth in your mouth. Full mouth reconstruction, unlike a “smile makeover,” is a necessary series of procedures, rather than an elective surgery.
Full mouth reconstruction is needed when:
Teeth have been lost
Teeth have been injured or fractured
Teeth have become worn as a result of acid-erosion
Jaw pain is present due to bite problems
PROCEDURES INVOLVED IN FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION Every patient’s needs are different and, therefore, require different procedures. Usually, full mouth reconstruction requires multiple office visits and some amount of healing time. Our dentist will determine which procedure or combination of procedures is necessary to restore and rebuild your perfect smile. We will also refer you to other dental specialists if needed.
Some options include:
Teeth cleaning (prophylaxis)
Crown lengthening to prepare tooth structure for possible crowns or bridges
Surgery to reposition the jaw (orthognathic surgery)
Contouring of the gum tissue
Reduction of natural tooth structure to prepare for crowns, bridges, and veneers
Placement of temporary restorations to get you used to your new teeth or bite adjustment
Placement of permanent restorations such as crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, or bridges
Braces to move teeth into the ideal position for reconstruction
Bone or soft tissue grafting to increase the stability of your teeth or implants
