What Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is a custom combination of restorative dentistry procedures designed to meet your needs.
The exact combination of procedures depends on your goals and the health obstacles you face. However, common procedures include:
Some of these procedures might be used in combination, like fillings and bridges. Others are options that achieve the same effects but with different priorities, like All-On-4 and Prettau Bridges.
Who Is a Candidate?
Full mouth reconstruction is a procedure that helps people with numerous cosmetic, functional, or health problems with their teeth. It can help if you can’t eat properly, experience discomfort in your teeth and gums, or have lost confidence in your smile.
Dr. Wolfe can design a smile for people who have:
- Missing teeth
- Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Worn teeth
- Infected teeth
All of these problems can usually be treated simultaneously. However, in some cases, we might have to treat a related oral health problem like gum disease before proceeding with your reconstruction.
In addition, the best candidates for full mouth reconstruction are committed to change and are prepared to do the full maintenance procedures necessary to maintain the new restorations.
Designing Your Smile
First, you will have a consultation with restorative dentist Dr. Wolfe. He will listen to your experience, concerns, and goals for your procedure. Then he will perform a comprehensive exam to determine the current and likely future health of your mouth.
After listening to your goals and performing his comprehensive exam, Dr. Wolfe will recommend procedures for your full mouth reconstruction. These procedures will not only fix the current problems with your oral health but head off future ones, including bite problems like temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ/TMD). Depending on your situation, he might recommend several potential combinations that you can choose from based on your budget, time frame, or cosmetic and functional goals. The ultimate choice of procedures is up to you.
