Is every tooth in your mouth broken, decayed or causing you pain or discomfort? If you’ve had a history of patched up dental restorations or intermittent dental care, you may feel as if your entire mouth needs an overhaul. There actually is such a thing! Full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment service that your dentist formulates based on every concern and oral health need that you have.
Treatments involved in full mouth reconstruction typically involve a combination of therapies such as dental crowns, veneers, bridges, dental implants or dentures. Your treatment is completed in phases, beginning with the most significant needs and working toward the less-invasive or minor needs toward the end of the reconstruction. All the while, the function and aesthetics of the end result are kept in mind regarding your care.
Patients who have successfully completed full mouth rehabilitation are able to eat, speak and smile the way they want to, like they did when their mouths were healthy. It can take just a few appointments, or several months to complete your care, depending on what treatments are to be used. In the end, your reconstruction will provide significant results that will boost your self-confidence and improve the way you look. Others will take notice!
If you’ve been unhappy with your teeth or haven’t seen a dentist in years, a comprehensive exam and assessment of your smile are all that is needed to determine whether a full mouth treatment is necessary to address your needs. Your treatment will be reviewed with you and implemented in stages, based on the care coordinated by the dentist and your personal goals.
