Full Mouth Reconstruction Steps
If your dentist has recommended a full mouth reconstruction, chances are, you are in need of a mixture of multiple different oral procedures. Dental cosmetic procedures can do anything from repairing damaged teeth, extracting decayed teeth, replacing missing teeth, address gum disease and jaw bone damage and much more. Each of these procedures is typically performed separately with at least a few days or weeks in-between, to allow for the laboratory to perform their procedures.
Who is a Candidate for a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A patient who is in need of multiple oral procedures could be a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. A candidate, however, must have good oral health in general in order to be healthy enough for multiple procedures at once. If a candidate has a form of gum disease, the dental professional will need to address that procedure first to allow the health of the gums to restore and heal before any other major procedure. A patient must also be healthy enough to receive a local anesthetic to numb the areas that will need to be worked on. Your dental professional will be able to go over these steps during the consultation appointment.
What are the steps involved in a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
- Finding the right dentist for you: It’s important to conduct your own research when searching for a dentist. If you have dental insurance, talk to your insurer about which local dental offices they provide coverage for and start your search from there. When searching for a dentist look at patient reviews, office location, education, and much more in mind when narrowing your search.
- Consultation: Once you’ve found the right dentist for you, an initial consultation is perhaps the most important step. This is the time when you can discuss casually with your dentist about your issues and what your plans are for the appearance of your mouth. Your dentist will perform a check-up and x-rays and discuss with you the options for repairing the issues that arise in your check-up. If your dentist recommends multiple procedures, you can discuss costs for a full mouth reconstruction at this time.
- Create a Custom Treatment Plan: During the consultation, your dental professional will conduct a series of x-ray exams that will determine the exact repairs that need to be made to the appearance and to adjust the function of your mouth. Your dentist will give you a step by step customized treatment plan that will ensure all repairs are made within a discussed timeline.
What Procedures Are Done First?
- Gum Disease Treatment: A dental professional cannot work in an unhealthy mouth. Any disease must be taken care of before any major treatments.
- Bone Grafting & Implants: If your jaw needs added bone for a dental implant, this is usually the next step.
- Cosmetic Dentistry: This includes, dental crowns, bridges, restoring infected teeth, etc.
- Teeth Whitening & Veneers: This step is quite simple. Teeth whitening is the final step in any dental procedure, and isn’t typically needed, but recommended if teeth are yellowed.
