If you have a large number of damaged, decayed, or missing teeth, you may be recommended to have a full mouth reconstruction.
As the name suggests, this process encompasses completely reconstructing all of the teeth in the upper and lower jaws. Because of the complexity of this process, full mouth reconstructions might require the involvement of multiple specialists, like endodontists, orthodontists, and periodontists, in addition to your regular dentist.
There can be a number of reasons why a patient may be recommended for a full mouth reconstruction. This can include the patient having:
teeth that are broken or damaged as a result of an accident
teeth that are lost due to extreme decay or trauma
teeth that are severely eroded, which is usually as a result of
persistent jaw, muscle, ear and head pain, which normally indicates a problem with the positioning of the bite
Before we approve a patient for any dental treatment or procedure, we ask that they attend a comprehensive consultation with us.
In order to determine if a full mouth reconstruction is right for you, it will be necessary for us to conduct a series of examinations.
This will help us to identify the extent of your dental problems, and decide which procedures will resolve your oral health issues and give you the best possible outcome in terms of the function, appearance
Every reconstruction is different and mapped out for your unique dental health requirements. Therefore, you may require one or a combination of the following procedures:
Bone and/or soft tissue grafting, which will create a solid base for your dental work
Contouring of the gums, to create an even, balanced smile
Crown lengthening, creating a healthy structure for crowns or bridges
Orthodontics, to move your teeth into the correct place for a successful reconstruction and to correct problems with your bite
Periodontal (gum) care
Placing temporary restorations while final, custom-created models are being prepared
Placing permanent reconstructive features including crowns, bridges, or veneers
Preparing your natural teeth so that they can accept the dental work necessary (such as veneers or bridgework)
Teeth cleaning and aftercare
The complexity of a full mouth reconstruction means that the entire process can take weeks, months or in some cases even longer than a year to achieve the final result.
To restore your long-term dental health and achieve a functional, beautiful smile, a full mouth reconstruction may be the solution you need for a healthy and functional smile.
