Am I a Candidate for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
You may require full-mouth reconstruction if you have lost some teeth or have several teeth with big fillings that need replacement. You could also have teeth with significant decay or teeth that are cracked, broken, or severely worn down because of bruxism (persistent teeth grinding). You might have dental conditions or a hereditary disorder like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (translucent or discolored teeth), which require extensive treatment. You might choose to replace older crowns or just want to improve your mouth for better health or comfort. In more complex cases, your degraded teeth and gums might have created a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction may revive the whole face when the appropriate number of teeth are in your mouth.
How is Full-Mouth Reconstruction Performed?
Following a complete examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw, your dentist may suggest full-mouth reconstruction. Your unique treatment plan will be created based on the condition of your teeth, gums, temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, jaw muscles, and dental bite. We will discuss your therapy and sedation options, as well as recommendations during your consultation to ensure your treatment strategy fits your needs and goals. Once your treatment program is created, we discuss what to expect in your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your procedures. Generally speaking, a full-mouth reconstruction will only take a few visits to our practice.
What Can I Expect After Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
After each treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, our dentists will describe what to expect and how to care for your mouth. You will feel some discomfort or swelling after certain procedures, like implant placement that will make it tough to chew, so a liquid or soft food diet might be ideal for you. Once your full-mouth reconstruction is finished, you must maintain your oral health with good brushing and flossing in your home. Yearly dental examinations and twice-yearly cleanings are also important. Throughout your examinations, Dr. Dodd can monitor the health of your own restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jaw.
