Full-Mouth Reconstruction Overview
A full-mouth reconstruction has the potential to enhance the function, health, and appearance of your gums, teeth, and jawbone for better chewing and speaking, as well as give you a smile you'll be proud of. Full-mouth restorations at Signature Dentistry of Rochester may involve performing but aren't limited to: inlays, onlays, bridges, crowns, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and dentures. Certain reconstruction procedures may also require a gum or bone graft prior to the procedure. As an experienced, board-certified dentist, Dr. Matthew Wolfe offers full-mouth restoration at his practice in Rochester Hills, MI that may help improve both your oral health and the overall appearance of your smile. He will pay close attention to your wants and worries prior to creating your personal full-mouth restoration treatment program.
Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
One could seek a full-mouth reconstruction for any number of reasons. If you've lost several teeth or have many teeth with large fillings that need to be replaced, then this procedure may be ideal for you. You might also be a candidate for a full-mouth reconstruction if you have teeth with widespread decay or teeth that are cracked, broken, or badly worn down because of bruxism (persistent teeth grinding). For some, you might even suffer from dental ailments or even a hereditary disorder, like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth), which require extensive treatment but can be helped by the procedure. In more complex cases, your degraded gums and teeth might have caused a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction can revive the whole face once the ideal number of teeth are in place, and it has the potential to help any number of people with a varying mixture of concerns.
What To Expect with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Following a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and jaw, Dr. Wolfe might suggest a full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment program will be generated, depending on the condition of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, facial muscles, and dental bite. Dr. Wolfe will discuss therapy, sedation alternatives, and his own recommendations with you during your appointment to make sure the selected treatment strategy fits your wants and goals. As soon as your treatment program has been crafted, he will tell you exactly what to expect from your full-mouth reconstruction. From there, he will schedule your procedures. Generally, a full-mouth reconstruction will require a few visits to Signature Dentistry of Rochester. Dr. Wolfe will schedule your treatments with breaks in between to allow for recovery until the next step begins.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
Proceeding every step in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, Dr. Wolfe will let you know what to expect and how to appropriately look after your mouth. He can write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine that needs to be filled prior to your treatment. You will feel some swelling or discomfort following certain processes, such as implant placement, that will make eating difficult, making a soft or liquid food diet ideal for you in the meantime. After your full-mouth reconstruction is completed, you must keep your oral health in check with good and consistent flossing and brushing habits. You should also continue to schedule your bi-annual dental cleanings and yearly dental exams to monitor your health and healing following the procedure. Throughout your future examinations, Dr. Wolfe will continue to track the health of your own restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jaw.
