Full Mouth Reconstruction

Essentially, full mouth reconstruction is the rebuilding of a patient’s smile. Its goal is to help restore health to a patient’s mouth and oral tissues through restorative and surgical treatments. It is designed for patients who are experiencing multiple medical issues with their dental health.

What Are Some Reasons for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

There are a variety of reasons why a patient may elect to have a full mouth reconstruction. Some of these include

  • Repair after an accident (for example tooth loss, damage to your mouth, or chipped/cracked teeth)
  • Repair after disease (for example from infected gums due to periodontal disease)
  • Pain in your jaw (for example discomfort due to jaw misalignment or bruxism/TMJ)
  • Teeth erosion or wearing down

What Kind of Treatments are Included?

Generally, a reconstruction consists of a variety of treatments, each unique to a patient’s diagnosis. Any one of the following treatments may be utilized during the procedure(s):

  • Bonding/contouring
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures (full or partial)
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Teeth whitening
