Dental reconstruction or teeth reconstruction surgery is used for patients who suffer from cracked, missing, and chipped teeth. If you are missing the majority of your teeth on the upper or lower arches, full mouth reconstruction may be the best solution to restoring your smile. A full mouth rehabilitation procedure or full mouth reconstruction process can be quite complex as the surgeon has to consider the entire functionality and system of a patient’s mouth and oral structure;- taking into account their ability to chew, speak, smile, their joint health, and overall longevity of the end result. Full mouth rehabilitation techniques can be completed on natural teeth, dental implants, or even on a combination of both.
The main and most suggested full mouth reconstruction procedures patients typically undergo are Fillings, TMJ treatment (Temporomandibular Joint) restoration, root canal therapy, dental crowns, , dental implants, inlays and onlays and porcelain veneers
Full Mouth reconstruction steps will start with a general consultation with your dentist where you can discuss your main concerns and overall goals for treatment and rehabilitation. The dentist will then enquire about your overall health, medical history, and other possibly relevant lifestyle choices that could affect you during surgery such as smoking or medications.
Once the dentist gets a full understanding of any pre-existing physical limitations and or anxiety that may make the full mouth reconstruction procedure harder as there would be more sedation needed, they will conduct a final comprehensive, oral, neck and head exam to better ascertain the full extent of the issue so that they can come up with the best-personalized treatment plan.
