Full-mouth reconstruction involves a combination of restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry procedures. Together, these treatments rehabilitate teeth and gums, creating a new and improved smile in both appearance and function. At NuDENTAL, our restorative dentists have the experience and expertise to rebuild your oral health into a flawless, comfortable smile.
The “restoration” part of full-mouth reconstruction ensures that your teeth, bite, and jaw all work together properly so your smile is structurally sound and moves and works properly. Once your gums and teeth are clean, healthy, and fully functional, the cosmetic portion of your full-mouth reconstruction can begin.
Your dentist will discuss all the treatments that can be part of your full-mouth restoration. Procedures can include gum disease treatment, dental implants, porcelain crowns, fixed dental bridges, root canal therapy, tooth extractions, cavity repair, teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers.
Your individual reconstruction plan could also include orthodontic treatment, inlays or onlays, dental bonding, or TMJ treatment.
Here is what you need to know about full-mouth reconstruction:
Completely customizable. Whether you need a dozen procedures or two procedures, your full-mouth restoration is unique to you alone.
Repair and replace. One of the few things that all full-mouth reconstruction procedures have in common is the repair and/or replacement of a large number of teeth. For this reason, dental implants and dental bridges figure prominently as restorations.
Single day restoration. Your NuDENTAL dentist will assess the health and options available to you, and in most cases a single day smile makeover is possible. We have an in house Cerec Milling unit which can mill teeth and inlays in a matter of minutes, and with the help of our in-house dental lab things are sped up even further.
If gum disease treatment, tooth extractions, or root canal therapy are necessary, these procedures will be conducted first to reestablish a healthy foundation so your mouth is ready for the new smile that awaits you.
Be committed. Full-mouth restoration is a complicated venture, but if you are determined to restore your oral health, we are too. Your dentist will develop a comprehensive treatment plan to revitalize your oral health using innovative technology and modern dentistry procedures.
Are You a Candidate for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
You know when your mouth is not in good condition. Chewing confidently is a challenge, loose teeth or lost teeth are common, and pain is a constant. It’s safe to say that you could use some dental attention if you haven’t been to the dentist for a checkup and exam for a long time.
Some of the most notable problems that could indicate the need for full-mouth reconstruction include:
- Broken teeth
- Missing teeth
- Mouth pain and soreness
- Loose teeth
- Bleeding gums
- Worn teeth
- Difficulty eating
- Altered speech
- Chronic jaw pain
- Embarrassment about your teeth
When the foundation of your smile has been compromised, there is no waiting it out and hoping the problem will get better. It won’t. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or other discomfort and worry about your teeth and gums, you need the attention of a NuDENTAL restorative dentist.
The good news is that your dentist has seen everything when it comes to oral health problems. There is no measure of disrepair, gum disease, tooth stains, or broken teeth that your dentist has not addressed in other patients – and he/she is not there to judge the state of your mouth. He is there to make your journey to a new smile as easy, effective, efficient, and long-lasting as possible.
Allow Yourself to Have a Beautiful Smile
There are many reasons people have tooth and gum problems, whether you have been without medical aid, thought you could not afford dental care, suffered an injury, or are living with poor dental work. All your NuDENTAL dentist wants to do is ensure that your smile, no matter how damaged it is now, becomes new again.
If you are concerned about how involved full-mouth reconstruction can be, remember that sedation dentistry is a viable and recommended option for qualified patients. Being able to “sleep” through your procedures makes the work easier for you to endure, and makes it easier for your restorative dentist to carry out multiple procedures at one time.
Full-mouth reconstruction not only gives you the smile you’ve long wanted and improved dental health, your overall well-being will get a boost and your confidence will increase when you know that your smile looks good.
