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.

  • 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.

    Kansas City Smiles & Co offers many payment options so that the cost doesn’t seem so steep. We accept and are in-network with many insurance companies, and accept third-party financing options including CareCredit and LendingPoint.

  • How long does full-mouth reconstruction take?

    The duration of full-mouth reconstruction varies depending on the complexity of the case and the specific treatment plan. It can take several months to complete, as it often involves multiple procedures such as dental implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, and periodontal treatments. Your dentist or prosthodontist will provide a personalized treatment timeline based on your individual needs.

  • How do I maintain my oral health after full-mouth reconstruction?

    Proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining oral health after full-mouth reconstruction. This includes brushing and flossing daily, using antibacterial mouthwash, avoiding habits that can damage teeth or restorations (such as smoking or teeth grinding), and scheduling regular dental cleanings and exams. Your dentist may also recommend additional maintenance procedures based on your specific dental needs.
