Full Mouth Reconstruction Q & A

What is full mouth reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is not just one but a series of dental treatments. The overall goal of these treatments is to restore the look, structure, and function of your mouth. The optimal outcome is a mouth that's very close to a healthy, natural mouth.

Am I a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction?

The best candidates for full mouth reconstruction are patients who have at least two dental issues to deal with at once. The issues that a full mouth reconstruction most commonly address include:

  • Oral disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Mouth injuries

When you're dealing with disease, decay, or injury, your Alpine Dentistry dentist can do a systematic full mouth reconstruction to return your mouth to optimal health.

Is a full mouth reconstruction the same as a smile makeover?

The two are quite different, although some of the same procedures might be included in both. Generally, a full mouth reconstruction focuses on making your mouth healthy again when you have poor oral health. Full mouth reconstruction may also have the side-effect of beautifying your smile, but that's not the main goal.

In contrast, a smile makeover usually focuses on cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening, veneers, and orthodontics. Full mouth reconstruction may also include orthodontic treatment or other common cosmetic treatments, but only when it's needed for better oral health.

What procedures are included in a full mouth reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction can include a variety of procedures, including:

  • Dental implants
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures and implant-supported dentures
  • Root canals
  • Gum contouring
  • Extractions
  • Orthodontics

A full mouth reconstruction can include nearly any type of dental procedure. Sometimes, your dentist may do two or more of these procedures during one appointment, depending on your needs and the overall treatment goals.

How long will my full mouth reconstruction take?

It varies from one situation to another. Factors that may impact your treatment timeline include:

  • Severity of your issues
  • Number of your issues
  • Your personal schedule

Usually, a full mouth reconstruction requires several appointments. Your dentist can discuss the timeline with you before your treatments begin.
