Full-Mouth Reconstruction – Is It Worth It?

To clarify, a full-mouth reconstruction is NOT the same as a smile makeover! A smile makeover is usually just a couple of cosmetic procedures that improve the look of your smile.

But if you have a bigger problem, then you’re going to need more than just a little cosmetic help.

What’s Involved?

Whether your mouth has been affected by a disease, such as rampant tooth decay, the effects are damaging and permanent. Normal activities like talking and eating become a lot harder when you have multiple missing or damaged teeth.

A full-mouth reconstruction is a project for your smile. Anything and everything that needs to be done to restore your bite is planned out from start to finish. Procedures may include:

  • Gum surgery
  • Bone grafting
  • Tooth extractions
  • Crowns
  • Root canals
  • Dental implants

Make a Plan and Be Committed

When you decide to rebuild your smile, you should be committed to following through. Not planning in advance would make the project pointless. Leaving it half done is just as bad as never beginning at all.

Start by finding a dental care provider who will help see you through every step until you reach your goal. Both patient and dentist have to be committed!

The Benefits

With your mouth rebuilt, you’ll be able to smile without fear and chew without difficulty. Imagine how nice it would feel to brush your teeth like normal instead of removing a denture for cleaning every day!

A full-mouth reconstruction is worth every effort, as long as you are dedicated to seeing it through. Your quality of life will improve dramatically. Contact your dentist for more details on how a full-mouth reconstruction could change your life.
