What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Your full mouth reconstruction begins with a consultation with Dr. Massa, our specialized cosmetic dentist. Dr. Massa will use our advanced dental technology to examine your mouth to identify and diagnose present dental problems. He will also ask you what you dislike about the appearance and function of your smile. Based on his findings during the exam and your own concerns he will give you several different treatment options to help you achieve your smile goals. He will discuss each treatment plan in-depth to help you decide which one is best for you. Feel free to ask Dr. Massa any questions you have during the process.
The ultimate goal of full mouth reconstruction is to restore your oral health, bite and cosmetics to attain a beautiful smile you’re in love with. Full mouth reconstruction generally combines several dental treatments to achieve one amazing result. It might take a few visits to help you achieve your desired results. It’s important to just be patient and know that you’re in excellent hands. Dr. Massa will try to combine as many treatments as possible into single visits to save you time.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments
Since full mouth reconstruction treatments combine restorative and cosmetic dentistry together, you might experience one or several of the following treatments.
To start, we try to remove all signs of decay, bacteria or infection from your mouth to give us a healthy foundation to work with. For some, this might mean treating gum disease or a simple dental cleaning. Once we’ve helped your mouth become as healthy and bacteria-free as possible we move onto our reconstruction phase.
If your teeth are beyond repair or you only have a few remaining natural teeth, we might suggest extracting the remainders and replacing all of your teeth at once with implant dentures or another solution. Patients who still have remaining teeth can benefit from restorative treatments like dental crowns, dental bridges, and dental implants.
If we find that you suffer from TMJ or other alignment issues, we will take a physiologic dentistry approach to your oral health. This can include epigenetic orthodontics to align your teeth in combination with physiologic dentistry to help you achieve an optimal bite. This allows your teeth, muscles, and jaw to rest in harmony together.
Lastly, we will tend to your smile’s cosmetics. We might enhance your smile using dental bonding, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or dental implants. It really depends on what your smile needs to look better.
