Different Dental Reconstruction Procedures Available

A full mouth reconstruction will come with a variety of treatment options based on the current status of your oral health and your desired outcomes. For example, if you are currently experiencing symptoms of gum disease, your dentist will first want to treat the disease and heal your mouth to ensure everything is ready for further procedures. Common reconstructive procedures include: 

Periodontal Treatment

When bacteria is allowed to build up around your teeth and gums, it can cause gum disease. An escalated version of this is called periodontitis, which can begin to eat away at your teeth, gums, and jawbone, making them weak and wobbly. When you have lost teeth due to periodontitis, your dentist will begin your full mouth reconstruction with periodontal treatments such as:

  • Professional cleaning
  • Root canal
  • Scaling and root planning
  • Osseous surgery
  • Gingivectomy
  • Tooth extractions
  • Root amputations

By targeting the cause of infection and rot, your dentist is giving your mouth the opportunity to host healthy and permanent implants in the future. Healthy gum will be allowed to heal and jawbones will regrow to become sturdy again. 

Dental Implants

Full mouth reconstruction often comes with the replacement of most teeth or all teeth. If you have natural teeth remaining, they will be attempted to be retained. Dental implants are a great-looking and fully functional way to replace any avulsed or rotted teeth. Permanent restoration implant options include bridges, crowns, veneers, and the All-on-4 surgical procedure. In order to ensure your implants have a solid foundation to settle into, a bone graft may be necessary first. 

This will ensure your jawbone, which could have been weakened by gum disease or the loss of your other teeth, is fully healed and ready to support the replacement for your missing teeth. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Full mouth dental reconstruction is not only to restore the normal function of your mouth, but to give you a smile worthy of showing off. While we work on healing your mouth and giving you teeth to chew and bite with normally, we will also help perform any necessary cosmetic procedures. Common examples include:

  • Gum contouring
  • Teeth straightening
  • Teeth whitening
  • Crown lengthening

Full mouth reconstruction is a revelatory set of procedures meant to restore the natural balance and function of your mouth, including the aesthetics. 

Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstructive surgery is beneficial for not only the patient’s mental health and general well-being, but for the dental structure and strength as well. By healing your gums and jaws, you are giving your mouth the strength it needs to work effectively. This set of procedures allows your mouth to become healthier and more resilient, preventing the likelihood of tooth loss, discomfort, and infection. 

Similarly, having a set of healthy teeth to take care of can drastically improve the patient’s overall mood and confidence. For many, it can be a way to start over. Having teeth with no discoloration or crookedness sparks a new interest in oral health and maintenance is more likely to span healthy cleaning habits and rituals.
