Full-Mouth Reconstruction – Do It Right the First Time!

Having full-mouth reconstruction is a pretty big deal. The damage done by cancer, decay, or an accident may mean reconstruction is your next step. Make sure it’s done right the first time and you’ll save a lot of time, worry, and money.

What is a Full-Mouth Reconstruction?

Your mouth may have suffered damage that affects its function. Full-mouth reconstruction is basically a plan for repairing your entire bite’s form and function. The procedures and techniques included in the process can include various phases of treatment like:

  • Multiple dental crowns, bridges, and fillings
  • Implant therapy
  • Surgical reconstruction of bone and/or soft tissue
  • Periodontal (gum) treatment

Finding the Right Providers

Find a dentist who is available to take on your case. Depending on your reconstructive needs, you might have to visit multiple specialists. Before any work can be done, your treatment needs should be carefully prioritized and mapped out to meet your long-term goals.

Not every dentist is equipped to take on such cases. Be patient as you search. It never hurts to visit with a 2nd or 3rd dentist to get their opinions. You don’t want to have to redo your treatment later on.

Prepare to Commit

A full-mouth reconstruction case is quite a commitment. It takes a lot of time and coordination; so good preparation is crucial to make this project a success. Plan ahead, because lack of preparation may mean having to stop halfway through your treatment. Your dentist will give you a customized care plan that outlines the entire process, number of visits, and the investments involved.

Are you ready to start rebuilding your smile from the ground up? Contact your dentist today to begin assessing your needs and create a plan that works for you.
