Full Mouth Reconstruction Q & A

What does full-mouth reconstruction mean?

Full-mouth reconstruction is a combination of dental procedures that cover your whole mouth. If you have widespread severe tooth decay, oral trauma, very worn teeth, gum disease, missing teeth, or other major oral health problems, a full-mouth reconstruction can give you a new and beautiful smile. 

Perhaps even better, your newly reconstructed mouth functions as it should. You can chew your food, speak with clarity, and feel more confident after a full-mouth reconstruction.

What procedures might full-mouth reconstruction include?

Central Avenue Dental offers full-mouth reconstruction treatments of many types, including: 

  • Replacing teeth with dental implants, All-on-4®, dentures, or bridges
  • Repairing damaged teeth with crowns or bonding
  • Saving infected teeth with root canal therapy
  • Aligning the bite with Invisalign® or orthodontics
  • Aligning the jaw joints with oral appliances
  • Restoring jawbone density with bone grafting
  • Replacing old dental appliances
  • Periodontal disease treatment
  • Teeth whitening
  • Gum contouring

In most cases, full-mouth reconstruction involves at least a short series of office visits because you typically need multiple procedures to get the full desired results. 

It may take anywhere from a few weeks to a year to complete your entire full-mouth reconstruction. That accounts for healing and recovery time between the different phases of treatment. 

What happens in a full-mouth reconstruction consultation?

Your consultation at Central Avenue Dental includes a comprehensive oral exam along with a discussion about your goals and wishes for the full-mouth reconstruction. 

In most cases, you need a computed tomography (CT) scan, a specialized 3D image of your mouth, and all of its various structures, including teeth, gums, jawbones, nerves, and other tissue. You may also need an intraoral scan, which involves a small wand scanning within your mouth. 

The Central Avenue Dental specialists formulate a specific treatment plan and discuss it with you, including the timeline for your treatment. In some cases, you can start treatment that day if you wish. 

If you want to rejuvenate your smile, a full-mouth reconstruction can help — even with very severe mouth damage. To learn more, book your consultation at Central Avenue Dental by phone or through the online appointment maker.
