Full Mouth Reconstruction
As the name implies, full mouth reconstruction refers to rebuilding and/or replacing all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Full mouth reconstructions combine cosmetic dentistry with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the function, health, and beauty of the mouth.
Reinvent Your Smile
Full-mouth reconstruction, full-mouth rehabilitation, and full-mouth restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of simultaneously rebuilding or restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. Our dentists, with years of experience working with the materials and procedures related to full-mouth reconstruction, will develop a plan that addresses all your needs and will leave you with a perfect smile, ideal bite, and optimal function.
The extent of your reconstruction will depend on the condition of your teeth. Your dentist may recommend crowns, bridges, veneers, or implants to restore your smile to its best possible condition. He or she will also address the state of your gum tissue, as the health of your gums may impact the type of restorations you receive.
Ready for a New Beginning?
You may be a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction if:
- Your teeth have been lost due to decay or trauma
- Your teeth have been injured or fractured
- Your teeth have become severely worn because of long-term acid erosion (from foods, beverages, or acid reflux)
- You have ongoing jaw, muscle, or headache pain related to your bite
Your treatment plan will entail a step-by-step process detailing all aspects of your reconstruction. The duration of your treatment will depend on the extent of work needed, but in the end, it will all be worth it. Your teeth, mouth, and smile will be healthy and beautiful for the rest of your life.
What does a full-mouth reconstruction involve?
A full mouth reconstruction usually combines many treatments. These treatments can include:
- Dental crowns and bridges
- Dental veneers
- Dental implants
- And more
These procedures will not only provide a smile makeover, but improved chewing efficiency for the patient as well.
How much does a full-mouth reconstruction cost?
A moderate full mouth reconstruction can cost $15,000-$40,000 but extensive reconstruction can be $45,000-$80,000 or more depending on the condition of the teeth and jaws, and the type and amount of procedures required.
