Full mouth reconstruction seeks to restore the entire mouth to form and functionality and deliver an esthetically pleasing smile that can last a lifetime. Several functional and cosmetic dental procedures may be combined to achieve this goal.
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Cosmetic dental reconstruction is a restorative dental process designed to create or recreate a beautiful smile. Many steps may be involved depending on the needs of the individual patient. Your dentist may recommend:
- Periodontal treatment for restoration of gum health
- Endodontic treatment to repair root canals
- General dental treatment such as fillings, crowns, or bridgework
- Cosmetic procedures such as whitening or straightening
- Dental implants to support restorations, bridges, or dentures
- Bone grafting if more support is needed in the jaw
- Orthodontic or prosthodontic appliances if required
Your course of treatment will be fully explained and costs gone over before treatment starts, and any additional services required by outside labs or specialists included for your review.
After Full Mouth Reconstruction
A new bite may take some getting used to, as can a new cosmetic look to your smile. You may experience some temperature or pressure sensitivity. If you have pain or any sore spots develop, contact our office. We are committed to ensuring your full mouth restoration leaves you with a comfortable, happy, and healthy smile that is functional and beautiful. You deserve the smile of your dreams!
Maintaining your New Smile
A strict at home brushing and flossing regimen should become a habit, and all follow-up instructions should be followed and appointments kept. There may be food restrictions for a time period after your reconstruction, and you may need to wear a mouthguard or retainer at night or during sports activities.
