Full Mouth Reconstruction An Overview
When a patient is suffering from poor oral health where the teeth and/or gums are significantly compromised or the function of the bite is greatly impacted, a full mouth reconstruction may be the most effective way to thoroughly address the full range of concerns. A full mouth reconstruction will typically include several dental treatments, all of which are working towards the goal of restoring health and function to your smile with a natural looking result. Dr. Caves works with patients in varying states of dental wellness, helping them get back to smiling confidently and comfortably again and improving their quality of life.
Do I Need A Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Dr. Caves may create a treatment plan that is considered a full mouth reconstruction or rehabilitation if all of a patient’s teeth need to be replaced or rebuilt using restorative dental treatments. These can range from a dental crown, inlay/onlay or dental veneers.
If you have lost all of your teeth, have a poorly fitted denture or have significant damage to the teeth, gums or jaw joints, Dr. Caves can work with you to repair and replace teeth, address gum health and stabilize the function of the bite. He will create a personalized treatment plan as a result of a thorough evaluation of all aspects of your oral health and listening to your specific concerns and aesthetic goals.
Full Mouth Reconstruction What to Expect
The first step towards a new smile is a consultation with Dr. Caves and digital dignostics to fully evaluate your teeth, gums and jaw joints. Your full mouth reconstruction treatment plan can include a range of options chosen to meet your needs:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridge
- Dental implants, implant dentures
- Periodontal therapy
Reconstruct Your Smile with Dental Implants
Whenever possible, Dr. Caves will recommend the use of dental implants as part of your overall treatment plan. This can include a single implant or several implants to secure a custom appliance such as a denture.
Dr. Caves works closely with a local oral surgeon and has years of experience helping patients replace missing teeth with all types of dental implants. Dental implants can minimize bone loss and changes to the shape of the jaw and also reduce the risk of dental concerns related to a removable appliance such as gum disease.
How Long Does A Full Mouth Reconstruction Take?
A full mouth reconstruction can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. The length of time necessary to complete your treatment plan will be largely dependent on your overall needs and the number and complexity of treatments required. If dental implants or oral surgery is needed to repair damaged gum tissue there will be a healing period between visits. Dr. Caves will go over all aspects of your treatment and provide a timeline of what to expect.
We will work with you to make sure that your final result is a beautiful new smile that blends naturally with your appearance and provides normal function. You can look forward to the renewed ability to smile with confidence in social and professional interactions and to enjoy some favorite foods that may have become difficult to eat.
