A full mouth restoration (sometimes called a full mouth reconstruction) is a major cosmetic dentistry procedure that resolves many issues at once. Full mouth restorations involve a comprehensive plan of treatment that seeks to restore the appearance and function of the entire mouth. Multiple dental prosthetics, procedures, and techniques are used to resolve all of the oral health issues present in the patient.

How Can I Tell If I Need A Full Mouth Restoration?

Full mouth restorations are needed whenever a patient has multiple dental issues that have not yet been resolved through dental procedures. If you have several cosmetic or functional issues with your mouth, then it may make more sense to plan for a full mouth restoration rather than address each of the problems individually.

A full mouth restoration can address the following problems:

  • Missing teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Misaligned or gapped teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gum and periodontal disease
  • Dental trauma

What Should I Expect During A Full Mouth Restoration?

The first step of a full mouth restoration is a thorough examination. Your dentist will assess the state of your mouth using a physical exam, x-rays, impressions, and digital imaging.

Next, your dentist will create a treatment plan based on the information gathered during the examination. This treatment plan could involve pulling teeth, scaling and planning to address periodontal disease, and using dental prosthetics like crowns, implants, and bridges to replace damaged or missing teeth.

The next procedures will vary depending on how complex the restoration is. In severe cases, multiple appointments may be required to fully restore your mouth. When your dentist creates your treatment plan, they should be able to give you a good idea of what procedures are involved and how long they will take.

After your restoration is complete, your dentist will schedule several follow-up appointments to monitor the health of your mouth and ensure that any oral prosthetics used in the process are well-fitting and functional.
