A “full mouth reconstruction” refers to restoring multiple teeth, as well as the surrounding tissues, to a healthy and functional state. Many patients need a full mouth reconstruction following tooth loss, severe decay, or trauma.

A full mouth reconstruction is an extensive procedure that combines multiple services, such as dental implants and dental crowns, to improve a patient’s tooth function and overall appearance. A patient may be a good candidate for this procedure if their teeth are severely decayed or failing due to advanced gum disease.

What Procedures Are Considered in Full Mouth Reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction may involve several restorative procedures to restore the health and appearance of a patient’s smile. Some of the most common treatments that are part of a full mouth reconstruction include the following:

  • Dental crowns
  • Root canals
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Orthodontics, including braces or Invisalign® aligners

Once these or similar treatments have been completed, the patient may achieve improved oral health as well as an enhanced appearance that makes him or her feel more confident about smiling, laughing, and speaking with others.

Who Needs Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is the process by which a dentist restores the function of the entire mouth through a variety of dental treatments, including dental implants and cosmetic dentistry. Often, patients require several different types of treatments to fully restore their smile after a traumatic injury, severe decay or disease, or other chronic condition has affected the health and function of their teeth.

Patients who have severely worn teeth from bruxism, TMJ disorder, or another condition may need a full mouth reconstruction to replace missing teeth and restore function to their damaged smile. Patients who have experienced tooth loss may have caused bone loss in the jaw over time, which can lead to other health issues such as facial collapse and the development of wrinkles around their mouth. A full mouth reconstruction can help to prevent these issues by restoring the jawbone with bone grafting or soft tissue augmentation and replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

What Are the Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Many patients choose to undergo a full mouth reconstruction in order to restore their smile to its healthiest state. A full mouth reconstruction can address a variety of different oral issues, including decay and damage that has occurred due to bruxism or TMJ disorder. Patients also choose to undergo this type of restoration if they are unhappy with the appearance of their smile and want to make improvements to its appearance. Full mouth reconstructions can achieve dramatic results, which will improve both the health and appearance of your smile.
