What Is Full-mouth Reconstruction?
Full-mouth reconstruction focuses on restoring form and function to your smile. Some of the procedures that can be involved include:
- Tooth extraction
- Root canal therapy
- Bone grafting and maxillofacial procedures
- Periodontal (gum) disease treatment
- Improving jawbone strength
- Correcting temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems
- Replacing old dental restorations, such as bridges, dentures, or crowns
- Bruxism therapy for chronic teeth grinding
Restorative dentistry aims to improve functionality and oral health rather than aesthetic issues, though many patients choose to combine restorative treatments with cosmetic procedures for a more comprehensive transformation. Some of the treatments that can be combined for greater effect include:
- Porcelain crowns for repairing damaged teeth
- Dental implants or dental bridges to replace missing teeth
- Fillings, inlays, or onlays to repair minor damage
- Orthodontia options such as traditional braces or Invisalign®
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
A smile makeover combines several cosmetic procedures; however, if treatments will improve your oral health, a full mouth reconstruction would be more appropriate.
Determining Your Candidacy
If you have several dental or oral health issues, full-mouth reconstruction may be a beneficial, comprehensive option for you. Our holistic, patient-centered approach can improve your dental health and function, as well as your self-confidence and quality of life. During your consultation, Dr. Tucker will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth and bone structure, including x-rays and digital imaging. He will review the images with you, discussing your priorities and answering all your questions. We will ask about your medical history and discuss any existing conditions.
Once we have a thorough understanding of your oral health and dental needs, we will formulate a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and budget.
Since full-mouth reconstruction often involves surgical procedures that involve the use of sedation, patients considering this option should be in good overall health. Full-mouth reconstruction may not be the best option for older patients or those with blood disorders, heart disease, or uncontrolled diabetes.
