What Exactly Does a Full Mouth Reconstruction Entail? | Walnut Creek Dentist

Though most of us already know just how important healthy teeth and gums are to our overall health. Most likely, we’ll only feel worried about our oral health once we feel pain in our mouth, we’ve lost one or more teeth, or in cases where the quality of our life has suffered tremendously as simple things such as chewing and speaking has become so painful and hard to do.

Today, modern dentistry has plenty of treatments available that can fix just about anything. A good example is a full mouth reconstruction, which is not actually a single treatment, but rather a process that’s composed of a number of dental treatments. Each treatment works in conjunction with each other, with the end goal of restoring the function, esthetics and health of a patient’s smile.

Treatments may include any one of the following:

  • Bone grafting
  • Tooth extraction
  • Root planing and scaling
  • Gum grafting
  • Antibiotics

If the jaws and gums are healthy, or once they’ve been fully restored, the focus is then on dental restorations, such as:

  • Fillings
  • Root canal treatment
  • Crowns and Bridges
  • Dental Implants
  • Dentures

The patient may then opt to improve the overall esthetics of their newly restored smile via the following cosmetic procedures:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain Veneers

Achieving the smile you’ve always wanted or getting it back is a much more realistic goal than you think. A full mouth reconstruction can help give you back the smile you’ve lost, as well as improve both your oral health and the esthetics of your smile.
