Is Full-Mouth Reconstruction For You?
You may require full-mouth reconstruction if you:
- Have lost some teeth
- Have many teeth with big fillings that need replacement
- Have teeth with significant decay
- Have broken, cracked, or severely worn down teeth because of bruxism (chronic teeth grinding)
- Have dental conditions or a genetic disorder, like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never developed), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth)
All of these issues could require extensive restoration. You might choose to replace older crowns or want to improve your mouth for better health or comfort. In more severe cases, your damaged teeth and gums may have created a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction may rejuvenate the entire face when the correct amount of teeth are in place.
What To Expect
After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and jawbone, we may suggest full-mouth reconstruction. Your unique treatment program is designed based on the state of your teeth, gum tissue, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), facial muscles, and bite. During your consultation, one of our expert team members will go over your treatment and sedation options. We will provide our recommendations to ensure your treatment plan aligns with your needs and goals. Once we have a treatment program, we will discuss what to expect during your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your procedures. Generally, a full-mouth reconstruction will require several visits to Complete Family Dentistry. To give you time to heal, we plan your treatments with breaks in between until starting the next step.
After each procedure during your full-mouth reconstruction, we will explain what to expect and how to care for your mouth. In some cases, you may receive prescribed antibiotics or pain medication for after your procedure. Additionally, you might experience some discomfort or swelling after specific procedures, like implant placement. This will make it hard to eat so a liquid or soft food diet might work best for you. Once we finish your full-mouth reconstruction, you must maintain proper oral health with flossing and brushing. Yearly dental exams and biannual cleanings at Complete Family Dentistry are critical for good oral health. Throughout your examinations, our team can track the health of your restorations, natural teeth, gums, and jaw.
