What is full-mouth reconstruction?

A full-mouth reconstruction can improve the appearance, function, and health of your gums, teeth, and jaw for easier chewing and speaking, along with a more attractive smile. Full-mouth reconstruction at Chang & Rothkopf Dental can include (but is not limited to) inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and dentures. Some reconstruction procedures may also want a bone or gum graft. Our skilled dental team performs full-mouth restoration at our practice in Washington, D.C., which can help improve both your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Before making your unique full-mouth restoration treatment plan, we will listen to your worries and needs.

Who is a Candidate for full-mouth reconstruction?

Reconstruction of your full mouth might be needed if you have lost some teeth or have several teeth with large fillings that are ready for replacement. You might also have teeth with widespread decay or teeth that are broken, cracked, or severely worn down because of bruxism (persistent teeth grinding). You might have dental ailments or a genetic disorder such as ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth), which require extensive treatment. You might want to replace older crowns or just want to enhance your mouth for better health or comfort. In more advanced cases, your degraded gums and teeth may have created a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. A full-mouth reconstruction can revive the whole face once the appropriate quantity of teeth is in place.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction FAQ

How long does full-mouth reconstruction take?

The duration of full-mouth reconstruction varies depending on factors such as the complexity of the case, the number and types of treatments involved, and the patient's overall oral health. Some cases may be completed in a few months, while others may require several months to a year or more to achieve optimal results. Your dentist or prosthodontist can provide a more accurate timeline based on your individual treatment plan and goals.

Is full-mouth reconstruction painful?

Full-mouth reconstruction may involve multiple dental procedures, some of which may cause temporary discomfort or sensitivity. However, modern dental techniques and anesthesia options help minimize pain and discomfort during treatment. Patients may experience some mild discomfort or soreness after certain procedures, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers or prescription medications as needed. Our team at CK Dental & Associates will take steps to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment process.

Can full-mouth reconstruction help fix my bite problems?

Yes, full-mouth reconstruction can address bite problems (malocclusion) by realigning the teeth and improving the overall balance and function of the bite. Orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners, may be recommended to correct misaligned teeth and achieve proper occlusion. In some cases, dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dental implants may also be used to restore proper tooth alignment and bite function.
