Who is a Candidate for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Your dental goals in full-mouth reconstruction will be detailed to your needs only. You may be showing signs of many dental issues, some include:
- A tooth or teeth that need to be extracted
- Bite misalignment
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Crooked and misaligned teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Missing teeth
- Old metal fillings
- Problematic spacing (gaps or overcrowding)
- Restorations that need to be replaced
From slight to severe, your dental concerns may require a full-mouth reconstruction to get you where you would like to be — healthy and smiling for the world to see. Poorly functioning restorations will no longer do an effective job at protecting you from gum disease, tooth loss, or bone loss. We can address your treatment, even if it has to happen in stages, one treatment at a time if necessary.
What to Expect During Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Before developing your treatment plan for full-mouth reconstruction, our dentist will have a consultation with you to get a better understanding of your specific oral concerns and your personal preferences for your results. Our team will always listen to what you have to say and will work closely with you when choosing the options that match your needs. Digital x-rays and 3D cone beam scans will be used to provide a comprehensive view of your oral health. We will also create study models of your teeth to ensure accuracy when planning your procedures. Our dentist will also be checking your jaw joints, your bite, and your facial profile. Once we have collected the data we need, we will go over possible treatment plans so that you can be informed of your options. Full-mouth reconstruction could involve anything from one to several dental procedures and is typically conducted in stages to make sure your treatment is proceeding in the right direction. If you have questions or concerns about a particular treatment, we will be sure to address your needs and also offer nitrous oxide or other forms of sedation to help maintain your comfort during treatment.
Our team’s goal during a full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan will always be to restore comfort, health, and functionality for our patients while also keeping overall appearance in mind. At Made Ya Smile, our dentist and staff have years of experience in a variety of dental procedures, and we will always use an approach that is as gentle as possible while helping to restore your smile. Full-mouth reconstruction can include a variety of procedures, including dental implants, crowns, bridges, bonding or porcelain veneers, inlays, onlays, tooth extraction, whitening treatments, TMJ care, and even root canal therapy. Our office may work in combination with other specialists for advanced treatment such as orthodontics, bone grafting, or other periodontal treatments so that you can experience the best possible results.
Recovery After Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Your recovery may be prolonged over a period of months to years depending on what you are having done, how long each treatment needs to heal, and your level of comfort with the process. We will map out your treatment and include estimated timing for each one. If you are having more complex treatments, then your recovery could be longer than others. Also, we would be happy to give you at-home instructions on how to care for your teeth and gums while you are healing. If you ever need assistance with a concern or have a question, please give us a call. We want you to maintain your oral health as normally as possible. Brushing and flossing are still vital, but we will give you instructions on what to do if you cannot touch the treatment site. You will have follow-up appointments at our office as needed. Generally, your follow-up appointment is the next treatment in your plan, and we can monitor all the dental work that has been performed at these visits.
Does Insurance Cover Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Treatments that are a part of your full-mouth reconstruction may be covered, at least partially, by your dental insurance provider. Before beginning any treatments, our staff will reach out to your provider so that your specific coverage details can be reviewed. We will work with them — so you have a better understanding of your out-of-pocket total mouth reconstruction cost. As a family-owned practice, we believe in helping our patients get the oral health care they need for a happy, healthy smile. During your consultation, our team will discuss your options with you while trying to develop a plan that will best match your needs and your budget. Our office in Rosenberg, TX accepts several payment options, and we are ready to help you find affordable medical financing if needed.
