Full Mouth Restoration and Reconstruction

Mouth reconstruction or full mouth restoration is a process where we carefully form a treatment plan consisting of several procedures with the goal to restore the functionality and beauty of your smile.

People who have suffered from a dental illness, practiced bad dental care, or have been in an accident where they have lost almost all their teeth, can benefit from a full mouth restoration.

Who requires a full mouth restoration and reconstruction?

People who have had dental issues that have resulted in:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Excess gums
  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth loss
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Worn out teeth due to grinding
  • Decaying teeth
  • Born with Ectodermal Dysplasia, Dentinogenesis imperfecta

What does the procedure involve?

A full mouth reconstruction usually involves several types of procedures performed by various specialists. For instance, you could be in need of a periodontist specialist, a restorative dentist, an oral surgeon, or an endodontist. This will all depend on the state of your oral health and the difficulty of the procedures in question.

We begin with a thorough examination to determine the steps in order to achieve the best results while utilizing the most efficient techniques. It is a different process with every patient and that’s why we tailor the treatment plan to each individual.

Things that need to be considered:

The condition of the teeth

For restorative purposes, we will check for damage on your teeth from acids, grinding, injuries and so on. Procedures like porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges and root canal treatment can benefit patients that are suffering from these conditions.

Periodontal issues

After the teeth have been examined, the next step is to check if the gums are healthy or require treatment. Periodontal scaling, root planing and other types of deep cleaning procedures can help alleviate any periodontal issues.

Jaw muscles and temporomandibular joints

A stable bite that is aligned is very important for a healthy life. Depending on the patient’s jaw shape, our dentists will suggest an adequate treatment procedure. Usually, we prescribe a night guard, orthodontics or some other form of treatment.

The aesthetic look of your mouth and your teeth

When considering the look of your new smile, it is important to measure the shape and size of your healthy teeth, while also matching the color. This is vital if we want to replace any missing teeth and still preserve a natural look.

The shape of your face must stay intact after the full mouth reconstruction is complete, so it is very important that we model your new teeth to compliment your existing jaw structure.

What Procedures can be included in the treatment?

In general, the treatment can take anywhere from a month up 12 months, and there are several procedures that may be involved depending on a case-by-case basis. Some of them are:

  • Placing permanent restorations (veneers, crowns, bridges)
  • Healing the gum tissue
  • Orthognathic surgery for proper jaw allocation
  • Braces
  • Implants
  • Bone removal and grafting
  • Periodontal care
