Dental Partners of Boston has numerous specialists and dentists working together in the same practice to provide our patients with coordinated specialty care. One of the services we offer is full-mouth reconstruction and restoration. You may want to consider a full-mouth reconstruction if your teeth have been neglected for a long period of time, if you have suffered a serious dental injury, or if you have badly aligned and crowded teeth.
Full-mouth reconstruction is a process typically used to rebuild and restore all of the teeth in a patient’s lower and upper jaw. Full-mouth reconstruction differs from smile makeovers by being a medically necessary procedure rather than an elective procedure. Full-mouth reconstructions are usually vital to the patient’s oral health and quality of life.
If you’re missing the majority of your teeth or find that most of your teeth are damaged and suffering from severe decay, you’re likely a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction. A comprehensive examination can be performed by one of our trained dentists in order to determine which procedures are necessary or not for you. Full-mouth reconstruction is often used in response to the following issues:
A full-mouth reconstruction is not a single procedure, but a treatment plan tailored to your needs. The exact length of the process and the steps involved with it can vary on a case by case basis. Full-mouth reconstruction can entail many different treatment options such as porcelain crowns, dental implants, dental bonding, root canal therapy, and inlays, onlays, and fillings. Your dentists at Dental Partners of Boston will create a custom treatment plan that best fits your individual needs.
Full-mouth reconstruction can require multiple office visits which are typically spread throughout an extended period. The end goal of the process is to return function and aesthetics to a patient's mouth. When the full-mouth reconstruction is finished, your muscles, gums, bones, and teeth should look aesthetically pleasing and form a proper bite.
