Full Mouth Reconstruction
In the past, you may have considered getting a dental crown, porcelain veneers, or even adult braces to correct a defect or other dental disorder. While many people opt for a single treatment at a time, a growing number of patients looking to dramatically improve the health, aesthetics, and long-term success of their smiles are choosing to get multiple treatments at once. This is known as a full mouth reconstruction, and our highly specialized prosthodontists are uniquely trained to carry out the complex procedures that a reconstruction involves. Geelan Dental Care is proud to offer full mouth reconstructions to all of our patients looking to make a total transformation.
What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction entails a number of different procedures, all aimed at working together synergistically to radically upgrade the form and function of your mouth. Every patient's full mouth reconstruction will be completely unique, but some of the more common procedures that typically are a part of a reconstruction include: dental fillings, dental crowns, veneers, dental bridges, and dentures. It can also include orthodontics like braces, contouring your gums, extracting damaged and diseased teeth, deep cleanings, bone grafts, and even corrective surgery.
Do You Need a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Not all patients need something as dramatic as a full mouth reconstruction, especially if you are only looking to improve the aesthetics of your smile. A full mouth reconstruction is best for patients with severe disease and damage that would likely require multiple procedures to heal and restore anyway. Broken and cracked teeth, multiple missing teeth, extensive disease and decay, worn teeth from grinding, and even certain congenital conditions can all make you an ideal candidate for a full mouth reconstruction.
Consulting with a prosthodontist is recommended before any full mouth reconstruction, as these experts in complex dental procedures are best suited to advising you on how all the potential treatments might fit together. They can work closely with you to create a holistic vision of what your mouth will look like post-reconstruction.
What You Can Expect During a Full Mouth Reconstruction
Without knowing the specific treatments involved, it is hard to say what you can expect during your reconstruction since each one is different. Reconstructions generally take place over multiple visits, and may take many months to fully complete as your mouth has to be allowed time to recover from operations, surgeries, bone grafts, and dental implant placement or other implant-supported restorations. It also takes time to fabricate custom-fitted dental appliances like crowns, bridges, veneers, and removable (complete) dentures. We will work closely with you to adapt the reconstruction to your schedule, but expect this to be a moderately long process that will require repeated visits to our office. You can also expect localized anesthesia or other sedation methods to be used, depending on the procedures involved.
