What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is a multi-phase process to fully restore the health, function, and comfort of your smile. Prior to treatment, you will have a comprehensive consultation with one of our dentists, who will examine your teeth and discuss your goals. Your dentist will recommend several restorative treatments, and, in some cases, he may also recommend cosmetic procedures. We will also take digital x-rays to look for signs of bone recession and other serious concerns. Once you have chosen which procedures to undergo, treatment can begin.
What Is Included in Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is personalized to your needs, so it can include a number of procedures:
- Crowns: Tooth-shaped restorations fit directly over your damaged teeth following treatment for large cavities and dental trauma. We can often provide same-day crowns using our CEREC® system.
- Dental implants: Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace lost tooth roots. Your dentist can attach a crown, bridge, or denture to the implant, which provides superior support. In addition to restoring your smile, implants prevent jawbone degeneration.
- Bridges: Bridges are restorations that replace missing teeth. Made of several fused crowns, they rely on dental implants or surrounding teeth for support.
- Bonding: Bonding can provide both aesthetic and restorative results. Your dentist will apply composite resin to your teeth and then cure and polish the material. This can fill chips and cracks, and strengthen your weakened teeth.
- Fillings: Fillings are the most common treatment for small to medium-sized cavities. Tooth-colored materials will blend with your smile and bond to your tooth more securely, preventing bacteria from causing further decay.
- Inlays and onlays: If you have a cavity that is too large for a filling, but not large enough to warrant a crown, an inlay or onlay may be a good choice. It will fit over the top of your molar, and, like a crown, it will blend with your smile.
- Orthodontics: Both traditional metal braces and Invisalign® can correct misalignment and malocclusion.
The Benefits of Reconstruction
Undergoing a full mouth reconstruction allows you to completely restore your oral health from virtually any state of compromise. It can also incorporate cosmetic treatments. For example, before your restorations are made, you can undergo cosmetic procedures, such as whitening, to ensure your restorations match your brighter smile. There are benefits and risks any time you alter your smile, and Dr. Rogers can resolve any concerns you may have. Once you have finished your full mouth reconstruction, you will be able to eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence and comfort.
