  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth roots. They serve as stable anchors for various restorations, including dental crowns, bridges, or dentures, restoring both function and aesthetics.
  • Periodontal Care: Periodontal care involves treatments to address gum disease and maintain healthy gum tissue, which is crucial for supporting teeth and dental restorations during full mouth reconstruction.
  • Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and onlays are conservative restorations used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. Inlays fit inside the tooth's cusps, while onlays extend over one or more cusps, preserving more natural tooth structure than traditional fillings.
  • Dental Crowns & Bridges: Dental crowns and bridges are restorative dental treatments that repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a tooth, while a bridge replaces one or more missing teeth by utilizing the adjacent teeth, or dental implants, as support.
  • Dentures and Partials: Dentures and partials are removable prosthetic devices that replace multiple missing teeth. Full dentures replace all the teeth in an arch. Partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth and can be supported by remaining natural teeth or dental implants as part of full mouth reconstruction.

  • Invisalign®: Invisalign Clear Aligners are a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Invisalign helps realign crooked or misaligned teeth before or after other restorative procedures are performed. This ensures a properly aligned bite and enhances the overall aesthetic outcome of the full mouth reconstruction.

Regular oral care is essential for preserving the results of full mouth reconstruction and preventing future dental issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the full mouth reconstruction process take?

The duration of your full mouth reconstruction can vary depending on the extent of work required and the specific procedures involved. Your dentist will provide you with an estimated timeline during your consultation.

Is full mouth reconstruction covered by insurance?

Full mouth reconstruction may be partially covered by insurance, depending on the individual's policy and the specific dental issues being addressed. Insurance companies typically cover procedures deemed medically necessary, such as those required to restore oral health or function.

However, coverage can vary widely, and some treatments may be considered cosmetic and therefore not covered by dental insurance. It's essential to check with your insurance provider to understand the extent of coverage for full mouth reconstruction.

Will I experience any discomfort during the process?

While some discomfort or mild soreness may be expected after certain dental procedures are done, your dentist will prioritize your comfort throughout the entire process. They will provide appropriate pain management techniques and instructions to minimize any discomfort.

What’s the difference between full mouth reconstruction and smile makeovers?

Full mouth reconstruction focuses on restoring oral health and function by addressing multiple dental issues such as decay, missing teeth, or bite problems. It often involves necessary restorative procedures, like dental implants or crowns.

In contrast, a smile makeover primarily aims to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the smile through cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening, veneers, or gum contouring. While some treatments may overlap, the primary difference lies in their focus on either restoring oral health or improving cosmetic appearance.
