A full-mouth reconstruction does not happen in one session. In many cases, it becomes a process that can take several months to complete.

Following a full-mouth reconstruction

After each procedure of your full-mouth reconstruction, you’ll need to care for your mouth. It is normal to experience some discomfort and swelling. If you have undergone dental implants or had extractions prior to dental placement, you might have a tough time chewing, so you’ll need to maintain a liquid or soft food diet. With proper, ongoing care, your full-mouth reconstruction can last a lifetime.
