If you have neglected your oral health for too long, dental problems can stack up fast. Even if you follow good oral hygiene practices, trauma to the mouth can result in damage to teeth, gums, or jaw bones. Misaligned teeth can encourage tooth decay or even lead to pain or difficulty biting. If you have problems with multiple teeth or gums, how can you restore a beautiful, healthy smile?

Full mouth reconstruction is a therapy involving restorative and cosmetic dentistry. It brings together experts such as orthodontists, periodontists, endodontists, and oral surgeons. It focuses on rehabilitating and repairing multiple teeth, as well as bone and gum tissue. The goal is to provide not only a streamlined experience but a comprehensive therapy. Full mouth reconstruction helps in the following ways:

Teeth – The extent of damage as well as the number of affected teeth determine the treatment. Treatments could include porcelain veneers or full crowns for cracked or cavity-ridden teeth. Orthodontics, bridges, partial dentures, or dental implant procedures repair missing teeth. Our dentists also use root canal therapy for decaying teeth.

Gum tissue – A periodontist will use scaling and root planing to remove deep and invasive gum disease. Gum grafting replaces damaged or receded gum tissue. In case of bone loss, bone grafting or bone density therapy will help strengthen bones and replace lost bone tissue.

Muscles and joints – Our dentists can repair muscle, joint, jaw problems, and tooth alignment issues with orthodontics to prevent further damage and help reduce discomfort.

Cosmetics – Part of full mouth reconstruction is cosmetic. Cosmetics help both the function and the look of the teeth and gums to appear more healthy and natural.

Since full mouth reconstruction is such an involved undertaking and requires the expertise of so many specialists, the treatment for each patient is determined on a case-by-case basis. This also accommodates the different needs of each patient. Full mouth reconstruction usually requires multiple trips to the dentist. The end result is a healthy, natural-looking mouth.
