Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction refers to the process of completely restoring all the teeth in your mouth. Unlike a “smile makeover“, full mouth reconstruction is a necessary series of procedures, rather than an elective surgery.
Full mouth reconstruction is sometimes needed when:
- Multiple teeth have been lost
- Multiple teeth have been injured or fractured
- Teeth have become worn as a result of acid-erosion, clenching, or bruxing
- Jaw pain is present due to bite problems.
Procedures Involved in Full Mouth Reconstruction
Every patient’s mouth is different and every full mouth reconstruction is different. Therefore, each full reconstruction requires unique, highly individualized, tailored treatment plans and procedures.
In most cases, full mouth reconstruction requires multiple office visits and some amount of healing time. The expert dental team at Comfort Dental will evaluate your specific needs and listen to your concerns and work to learn about your dental goals. After this, the procedure, or combination of procedures, best suited to your individual reconstruction needs and your discussed dental goals is determined.
Working to restore and rebuild your perfect smile, the Comfort Dental team offers a variety of options to ensure your full mouth reconstruction is a success, including:
- 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, either for structural or cosmetic reasons
- 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
