About full-mouth reconstruction

Full mouth reconstuction is a personalized treatment plan with several dental procedures, spread out over time. No two treatment plans are alike. Different patients will have different oral health issues of varying severity. As an example, a person with multiple missing teeth will need a vastly different approach than a person with extensive staining and little else.

Dentists will schedule a series of procedures, starting with those that correct ‘foundational’ oral health issues. They will also prioritize the treatment of injury and tooth decay--problems that could quickly become dental emergencies. The procedures that feature in full mouth restoration fall into a few broad categories:

  • Dental restorations like direct fillings, inlays, overlays, and crowns
  • Tooth extraction and replacement of missing teeth
  • Orthodontic treatment to correct misalignment
  • Teeth whitening, stain removal, or the hiding of minor imperfections
  • Tooth reshaping
  • Corrective surgery of the jaw, palate, gums, and various soft tissues of the mouth

These categories cover both the oral health and appearance of the teeth. Now the focus shifts to the oral health angle of full mouth restoration.

Oral health (restorative) goals of full mouth reconstruction

A great smile is important, but oral health takes priority. Luckily, dentists rarely need to make a tradeoff, thanks to the overlap between cosmetic and restorative dentistry. With that, here are the restorative goals of full mouth restoration:

1. Treatment of tooth decay or gum disease

Bacterial infection is at the root of tooth decay, pulpitis, and gum disease. Dentists eliminate these issues by removing the infection and restoring the structure of the problem teeth or gums.

For teeth, dentists use restorations like crowns, overlays, or direct fillings to seal and reinforce the teeth. The restorations also improve the shape and color of the teeth.

2. Straightening crooked teeth

Orthodontics is a relatively long-term approach to correcting a bad bite. On the upside, orthodontic treatment is also a holistic and permanent way to resolve misalignment of the teeth and/or jaws. The good news is that modern orthodontics are discreet, allowing a patient to reposition their teeth without metal braces.

Straight teeth are easy to clean, which means they are at a lower risk of harboring food particles. The happy result is a lower risk of tooth decay and other forms of infection.

3. Teeth replacement

Injury, gum disease, or extensive tooth decay can lead to tooth loss. The resulting gaps make it hard for the patient to eat or talk. This in turn creates a bad bite and a decrease in self-confidence.

Implant-supported prosthetics are a permanent and holistic solution to missing teeth. They create a perfect bite while keeping the jawbone healthy.
