Do I Need Full Mouth Reconstruction?
You may be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction if your dental needs are extensive and serious in nature. You might have multiple missing, broken or cracked teeth. Perhaps many of your teeth are weak or loose, or they are extremely worn. Maybe you have widespread tooth decay or infected teeth. Your gums may display signs of mild to severe periodontal disease. Issues with you bite may be wearing away your teeth.
The benefits of full mouth reconstruction go beyond an attractive smile and dental function. Full mouth reconstruction restores positive self-image and confidence; you will look in the mirror and love the person looking back at you. With a warmer and more approachable demeanor, your entire world may open up, providing opportunities to expand your social circle, improve your dating life or advance your career.
Customizing Full Mouth Reconstruction to Your Needs
Your full mouth reconstruction will be tailored to your specific dental needs and goals. After examining your mouth and discussing your areas of concern, Dr. Kennedy will review all of your treatment options, pointing out the pros and cons of each. He will propose a recommended treatment timeline to address your most pressing issues first. Information about cost, financing and scheduling will also be discussed before proceeding with treatment.
Your full mouth reconstruction may include any of the following procedures:
- The placement of a dental bridge or dental implants to fill gaps left by missing teeth
- The placement of dental crowns over severely damaged teeth
- The placement of dental fillings, inlays or onlays over teeth with significant decay
- Root scaling or planing to treat early signs of gum disease
- The placement of dentures (traditional or implant-retained) to replace all of the teeth in the mouth
- Tooth extraction for failing and compromised teeth
- Root canal therapy for infected teeth
- Orthodontic treatment to fix crooked, crowded or poorly aligned teeth
- Therapy for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
Rebuilding or replacing most or all of the teeth in the mouth usually requires multiple dental visits spaced out over the span of a few months. Some full mouth reconstruction plans take a year or more. Your initial consultation with Dr. Kennedy will give you a clearer idea of what to expect and how to plan for your treatment.
