What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction involves dental professionals performing a variety of restorative and general treatments to restore a patient’s teeth and gums. It typically involves working on the mouth in its entirety, meaning both the upper and lower teeth. Depending on the needs of the patient, it may be necessary to have specialists on hand to perform certain procedures.

When is it Necessary?

There are many reasons a person would need full mouth reconstruction, such as:

  • Teeth that are severely damaged, injured, or fractured
  • Teeth that are affected by decay or trauma and as a result, have fallen out
  • Acid erosion that caused excessive wear and tear on teeth, or teeth grinding
  • Improper bites that cause immense pain in the jaw and facial muscles, as well as produce chronic headaches
What Procedures Can Be Involved?

It’s important to remember that every patient is different, thus, so are their dental needs. To ensure our patients receive the complete care they need, some of the common procedures that can be performed during a full mouth reconstruction include:

  • Dental Crowns
  • Dental Bridges
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Periodontal Therapy
  • Orthodontics
  • Root Canals
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings
  • TMJ/TMD Treatment
  • Tooth Extractions
  • Dental Implants
What is the Process?

The first step is to have a full examination performed. During your initial appointment, your dentist in Rochester will look at your mouth first-hand, as well as through X-rays, to determine the severity of the problem(s). Throughout the exam, our dentists will determine which methods of treatment will best benefit you and your oral health. Some of the different areas you can expect our dentists to evaluate are your:

  • Teeth
  • Gum health
  • Jawbone and joints
  • Visual appearance of your smile

In addition to X-rays, you can expect to have photographs and impressions taken of your mouth, as this will help to create any restorative prosthetics needed.

After compiling all the information and appropriate images, we will create a personalized treatment plan. This will be a step-by-step process of how we plan to restore your smile. It is important to us that you are comfortable and confident with the suggested treatments.

Again, depending on your individual case, it can take months or even a year or more to fully reconstruct your smile. Many procedures require multiple visits to the dentist office, so you’ll need to make sure you are committed to keeping your appointments throughout the duration of your treatment plan.

Remember, a full mouth reconstruction is something you need to have in order to regain your oral health. This is not a plan for solely making your smile look “pretty.” It is to ensure it is healthy, functional, as well as aesthetically pleasing.

“I had chipped the corner of my front tooth when I was a kid and had a composite filling that time really took a toll on. So, I got an appointment scheduled to get a new filling! Dr. Melissa and Kristie did a wonderful, efficient, and painless job on my tooth. They matched the color and shape perfectly. You can't even tell I have a filling! Thanks for your great work!”
