What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Numerous elements must work together in harmony for optimal oral health. An issue with your teeth, gums, jaw joints, or bite can compromise your entire smile. A full mouth reconstruction combines a variety of restorative treatments to repair or replace damaged teeth, address issues with the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and correct gum problems to lay the foundation for your oral health. Simply stated, a full mouth reconstruction to restore the health, function, and aesthetics of your smile.
Who is a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Anyone who is suffering from multiple dental issues is a candidate for full mouth reconstruction. Because good oral health is necessary for a strong foundation, one of our doctors will perform a thorough assessment of your teeth and gums during your initial consultation. If extensive decay or periodontal disease is present, it must be addressed during the first phase of your treatment. Once the bacteria levels are under control, we can focus on rebuilding your smile.
Commonly Combined Restorative Treatments
At Iroquois Family Dentistry, we offer a wide scope of restorative treatments that can be included in a full mouth reconstruction. Some of the most common procedures include:
- Dental Implants: Because implants are anchored directly into the jaw, these restorations can preserve your jawbone and prevent bone atrophy.
- Dental Crowns: These porcelain caps can restore and protect badly damaged or decayed teeth, adding stability and strength. With advanced CEREC® technology, we can also provide crowns in a single appointment for certain patients.
- Dental Bridges: If you are missing up to three consecutive teeth, a dental bridge can fill in the gap . Like our CEREC® crowns, we can fabricate dental bridges in a single appointment for eligible patients.
- Dentures: We offer full and partial dentures for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. Implant-supported dentures can provide additional stability.
Because every full mouth reconstruction is fully customized to meet the needs of each individual, treatment timelines are different for every patient. Our doctors will work with you to determine the most conservative and time-efficient way to achieve your dental goals.
