Full mouth reconstruction refers to a series of dental procedures that are designed to bring the appearance, structure and functionality of the mouth back to the highest levels possible. The dentists at CONFIDENT provide a uniquely individualized consultation and treatment plan to ensure each patient enjoys a fully restored and healthy smile.
Patients who have multiple problem areas in their mouth may be good candidates for full mouth reconstruction. When disease, tooth decay, injuries or all three are issues in multiple areas, the dentist may plan a systematic full mouth reconstruction to restore the mouth as much as possible.
Some of the most common procedures in full mouth reconstruction include cavity fillings, teeth scaling, root planing, root canals, dental implants, crowns, veneers, orthodontics, such as braces, and teeth whitening. Nearly any dental procedure or treatment can be used in a full mouth reconstruction.
The timeline can vary from one patient to the next. The length of the treatment will depend, in great part, upon the severity of the issues and on the number of issues that exist at one time. In almost all cases, a full mouth reconstruction will require the patient to have multiple dentist appointments.
No, full mouth reconstruction and smile makeovers are actually quite different. The primary goal of a smile makeover is cosmetic. The smile makeover will help patients who have a healthy mouth to enhance the look of their smile. A full mouth reconstruction is designed for people who don’t have a healthy mouth, so its main goal is to make the mouth whole and healthy again. While the main purpose of a full mouth reconstruction is functionality, there are still cosmetic benefits, for example, replacement of missing teeth and straightening the smile.
