What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Some dental problems, such as missing teeth due to trauma or decay, require a full mouth reconstruction. This is also called full mouth rehabilitation and full mouth restoration. It involves rebuilding or restoring all your teeth in both upper and lower jaws. A full mouth restoration can be an extensive process and involve multiple phases and office visits, depending on your situation.

What are common dental problems that typically require a full mouth reconstruction?

  • Missing teeth due to trauma or decay
  • Teeth that have been damaged or fractured
  • Severely worn teeth caused by tooth grinding or acid erosion from foods, beverages, or acid reflux over time
  • Ongoing or chronic jaw, muscle or headache pain and headaches which typically require adjustments to the bite

What is the process for full mouth reconstruction?

Regardless of why your teeth and oral health have deteriorated, Dr. Keys can give you a strong, healthy, vibrant smile through full mouth reconstruction. At your visit, he’ll take radiographs, examine your teeth, review your existing dental work, check occlusion (how upper and lower teeth fit together), and learn about your overall oral health. This information will allow Dr. Keys to understand your situation and how to help you.

Esthetics are also an important consideration in planning a full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Keys will look at the shape, size, color, and proportion of your teeth, and take into account your gums, mouth, lips, and face.

These are some procedures that may be involved in a full mouth restoration:

  • Prophylactic teeth cleaning and gum care
  • Preparation of your natural tooth structure before veneers, crowns, or bridges can be place
  • Crown lengthening to render healthy tooth structure available for possible bridges or crowns
  • Positioning of temporary restorations with the purpose of getting comfortable with your new teeth and the feel of your new occlusion or mouth
  • Installing of permanent restorations, such as inlays/onlays, crowns, bridges, or veneers
  • Shaping of the gum tissue to produce harmony and balance in your smile
  • Braces that will help shift your teeth into the best possible position for reconstruction
  • Replacement of missing teeth with dental implants and restoration
  • Oral surgery to reposition the jaw
  • Grafting of bone or soft tissue to improve the stability of your teeth, planned implants, and/or other restorations

Who typically has full mouth reconstruction?

Those likely to benefit from full mouth reconstruction include people who want to eliminate pain, improve function, or replace teeth and want to restore beauty, comfort, and function. A full mouth reconstruction can even provide a more youthful appearance.

My experience was a very good one. The first procedure was explained to me in detail, I understood all phases and feel very confident in the procedures to follow. I am very pleased with my experiences and would highly recommend Catalina Dental Implant Center
