Rebuilding all teeth in your mouth
People with severe dental problems may be candidates for a full mouth restoration (sometimes called "full mouth reconstruction"). As the name implies, full mouth restoration refers to rebuilding of all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Full mouth restorations combine esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function and beauty of the smile. Crowns (caps), dental bridges, dental veneers and/or dental implants may be used in a full mouth restoration. In some patients orthodontics may also be employed to help properly position the jaw and align the teeth.
What to Expect
Full mouth reconstruction is a complex service and one that prosthodontists have been specially trained to perform at the highest level of care. Your prosthodontist will use proven techniques, in order to minimize the time you must spend in the dental chair. Typically several appointments (3-4) are necessary, depending on the complexity of your case.
