Full-Mouth Reconstruction Overview
Restoration of your entire mouth can improve the appearance, health, and function of your teeth, gums, and jaw for easier biting, speaking, and a better-looking smile. Full-mouth reconstruction at People's Dental can include (but is not limited to) onlays, inlays, crowns, bridges, veneers, implants, and dentures. Some restoration treatments may also need a bone or gum graft. Our extensively skilled dental team performs full-mouth restoration at our office in Springfield, MA that could help rejuvenate both the health of your mouth and the look of your smile. We will listen to your questions and goals before creating your special full-mouth restoration treatment plan.
Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Restoration of your full-mouth might be needed if you have lost a few teeth or have several teeth with big fillings that are ready for replacement. You could also have teeth with significant decay or teeth that are broken, cracked, or severely worn down due to bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). You might have dental conditions or a genetic disorder such as ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (very small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (translucent or discolored teeth), which require extensive restoration. You may want to replace old dental crowns, or just want to improve your mouth for better health or comfort. In more advanced cases, your degraded teeth and gums may have created sunken cheeks or another visible facial deformity. A full-mouth reconstruction can rejuvenate the entire face when the correct quantity of teeth are in your mouth.
What To Expect with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and jawbone, our team may advocate full-mouth reconstruction. Your unique treatment plan will be made based on the state of your teeth, gum tissue, temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, jaw muscles, and bite. We will go over your treatment and sedation choices, and our recommendations during your consultation to ensure your treatment plan fits your needs and goals. Once your treatment plan is created, he will go over what to expect during your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your visits. Generally speaking, a full-mouth reconstruction will take several visits to People's Dental. We will plan your procedures with time in between to allow your mouth to heal before the next step is taken.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
After each procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan, we will explain what to expect and how to take care of your mouth. We may prescribe antibiotics or pain medication that should be filled before your process and taken as directed. You might have some discomfort or swelling after certain procedures, like implant placement that may make it tough to chew, so a liquid or soft food diet might be right for you. Once your full-mouth reconstruction is done, you should maintain your oral health with proper brushing and flossing at home. Annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings at People's Dental are also important. During your exams, we can monitor the health of your restorations, natural teeth, gums, and jawbone.
