Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Patients who live with oral discomfort and pain, have extensive oral damage, or major concerns about their appearance are often candidates for a full mouth restoration or complete dental reconstruction. While this isn’t the right treatment option for everyone, this multifaceted approach to dental care can help patients with serious oral health problems find relief with the smile of their dreams.

What Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction uses a variety of treatments to address extensive oral health problems that occur due to gum disease, injury, aging, wear, enamel erosion, and decay.

Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction the Right Treatment Option for You?

A full mouth reconstruction is designed to treat patients who have extensive oral health problems that cause pain, discomfort, or significantly affect their appearance. Full mouth reconstruction is used to address extensive damage and other complex oral health issues, such as those that cause:

  • Pain and discomfort
  • Malocclusion
  • Improper function
  • Speech problems
  • Altered appearance
  • Significant aesthetic concerns

Full mouth restoration usually isn’t recommended for patients with mild oral health problems and concerns. Typically, these issues can be addressed with fewer or less extensive treatments.

What Does a Full Mouth Restoration Entail?

The treatment plan and timeline involved with a full mouth reconstruction will look a bit different for every patient. Each patient is unique and faces their own set of challenges. As a result, every patient benefits from a multifaceted treatment plan designed to address their individual needs and help them meet their own smile goals. Complete mouth reconstruction or restoration typically includes a combination of some of the following dental treatments:

  • Overdenture
  • Dental implants
  • Fixed bridge (All-On-4, All-On-6, or All-On-8)
  • Crowns
  • Root canal therapy
  • Natural-looking fillings
  • Clear orthodontics
  • Veneers
  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Laser gum therapy

Most patients don’t require every dental treatment on the list; patients can usually achieve their ideal smile with a combination of a few key treatments designed to create an attractive, comfortable, and fully functioning set of teeth.

During a patient’s initial consultation, Dr. Michels will ask about the individual’s concerns, medical history, goals, and budget to work with them to develop the perfect full mouth reconstruction plan for them. It’s not unusual for a full mouth reconstruction to require weeks to complete. Throughout the course of treatment, Dr. Michels focuses on streamlining treatments to maintain the patient’s oral function, comfort, and stability, while working toward achieving their ultimate goals.
