There is a wide range of different dental problems that can affect us during our lifetime. While sometimes these occur as standalone issues that can be resolved fairly easily, other times these problems can accumulate quickly, and you find that virtually every tooth in your mouth needs some sort of treatment. This most often occurs when patients haven’t seen their dentist for a long time, which has enabled decay and damage to progress and become significantly worse. However, there are other scenarios, such as a sudden trauma to the mouth, that can also cause widespread damage.
If you have severe dental problems, our dentist may recommend you for something known as a full mouth reconstruction.
A full mouth reconstruction is the term given to a number of different dental procedures that are combined in order to completely restore all of the teeth in either or both the upper and lower arches of your mouth. These treatments take place over a number of months, and at the end of the treatment, you will benefit from a completely restored, functional, and attractive smile.
Since most full mouth reconstruction surgeries are fairly complex in nature, you may find that a variety of different specialists are involved at various stages of your treatment plan.
Every patient can be expected to have unique dental requirements. This means that every full mouth reconstruction program will be tailored to your personal needs. Our dentist will talk to you about which treatments would benefit your teeth and why, and will explain which order you can expect these to be carried out in. The more dental work you need, the lengthier and more detailed you can expect your treatment program to be.
It is also important to understand that your full mouth reconstruction will also be based around how well you respond to the various treatments and could be adjusted at any point if your dentist feels that it would be beneficial. While some treatment results are obvious fairly quickly, others, such as Invisalign, are prolonged and it will take a number of months or longer to see a significant change in the appearance of your smile.
Some of the most common procedure and treatments included in a full mouth reconstruction include the following:
Exactly what will be included in your full mouth reconstruction will be decided after a thorough assessment of your teeth and oral health.
