Missing Teeth

What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

It’s exactly as it sounds: we change every aspect of your teeth, and sometimes we complete work on your gums, to ensure a healthier looking smile. There are a number of approaches and treatment options we use to ensure a beautiful result following a full mouth reconstruction including dental implants, gum therapy, braces, and more.

Dental Implants

Implants are one of the most popular and effective ways to improve the look and function of a person’s smile. Dental implants have 3 components that are used to build the implant including the root (which is a titanium screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone), the abutment (which is the part of the appliance that attaches the titanium screw to the new tooth), and the crown (which is the part of the tooth that is seen above the gumline). When treatment is complete, patients will have a beautiful set of permanent teeth. Crowns are typically made of porcelain and can last a lifetime when taken care of correctly. The timeline for receiving dental implants varies depending on how long it takes individual patients to heal after oral surgery; however, most patients complete dental implant treatment within several months from the time of consultation to completion. While dental implants are used to replace individual teeth, they can also be used to replace entire mouths of teeth. Dental implants and dentures are often used together to create the look of a full set of teeth without having to implant a full set of dental implants surgically. Four or more dental implants are used to secure the dentures in place creating a permanent bond. Several options related to dental implants will be discussed during your consultation.

Gum Therapy

In order to prepare for any invasive or non-invasive dental treatment, some patients must undergo a series of gum therapy treatments. Sometimes, tooth loss occurs because of gum disease or damage, and it is vital that the patient has a healthy set of gums to house the new teeth they will be getting; either through dental implant, crown, bridge, dentures or other dental appliance. Gum therapy involves scaling of teeth to ensure any bacteria or infections are removed entirely. This needs to be done before any further treatment can be completed. It can take a couple visits to our office to complete any necessary gum therapy, but it is an essential part of the full mouth reconstruction process.

As part of our full mouth reconstruction services, our patients often require orthodontic services to change the way their teeth look. Braces are used to straighten teeth horizontally and vertically, and in some cases, they are used to rotate teeth into their ideal position. Every patient is different, and we take pride in providing a tailored experience to our full mouth reconstruction patients. We know it is difficult to undergo a great deal of treatment in order to restore the look and function of your mouth, and we make sure you are getting world-class service, coupled with compassionate and caring customer service.

Dental Crowns

When it comes to changing the look of your teeth, crowns are an ideal solution; and they are fast. Crowns can be designed and placed over your teeth in just a couple of weeks. They fit like “caps” over your existing teeth so there’s no need to undergo tooth extraction. We’ll carefully move minimal tooth structure so that the new crowns can fit over them properly, and when the procedure is done, you’ll have a beautiful new look.

Bone Grafting

In addition to gum therapy, some patients will need to undergo a series of bone grafts to prepare the jawbone to receive implants or other dental devices and to maintain the integrity of the bone the years to come. Bone grafting can be done in two ways: traditionally bone grafts are taken from a donor and surgically attached to your existing jawbone. Another option is to take bone from your own mouth and restructure it to fit your jawbone. We can discuss your options in detail during our consultation.

Root Canals

If there is a chance to save some of your original teeth, we will always try to do that. It means less recovery time for our patients when we can work with existing teeth and not have to extract them. Root canals, while they have maintained a bad reputation over the years, tend to be the easiest way to save a tooth from potential loss. When a root canal procedure is completed, we can place a crown over it to improve the look and function of the tooth without surgery or long recovery times.

Injury or Accident

If you are considering a full mouth reconstruction because of an injury or accident, we can help you review your options and make a plan to repair the look and function of your mouth. If your jawbone has been fractured or damaged, we can correct pain, discomfort, and bite problems with several dental appliances and treatments. There’s no need to live in discomfort any longer. We’ll help to restore the look of your mouth and teeth so you can get back to enjoying your life.

I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Margeas for a small cosmetic issue with a tooth from a recommendation from my current Dentist. I have heard from many people (including my own dentist) that he was the best in cosmetic dentistry any where in the mid-west. My consultation was this morning. He was totally upfront about what he thinks the best route is for me and my teeth. I felt totally comfortable with his recommendations and confident in his abilities. I've been to an other dentist about this same issue years ago and it didn't feel right. Now that I've had the consultation with Dr. Margeas, I'm excited to finally move forward with fixing it. Every staff member was very welcoming and pleasant. It was a really nice place to be with a great energy there. If I didn't like my normal dentist so much, I'd absolutely become a regular there! Maybe I'll pop in for an extra cleaning or something. I'm happy to have found Dr. Margeas and his staff to help me correct my cosmetic issue. I highly recommend this business!read more

From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I felt me and my teeth were in great hands. The whole team is so kind, and my dentist was fantastic. I originally went in wanting veneers, keep in mind I am overly critical of my smile and teeth, and it was all I knew. My dentist educated me that he did not think veneers were the best choice for me, and gave me a much better option which costed about 6 times less than what veneers would have. He is a great dentist because he won't just do what makes him the most money, he does what is best for the patient. I just got done with my appointment and I could not be more overjoyed with my results. Thank you Iowa Dental Group team!:)read more

First and foremost, Dr Margeas is world renowned in the field of dentistry. He is considered one of the premier educators with practical application for clinicians everywhere. As a teacher he practices what he preaches by taking the most conservative approach for the patient with long term application and not for short term gain. Today I expected to have a crown done on tooth 30 which is perfectly acceptable to most clinicians. However, Dr Margeas was able to take the conservative approach without compromise of the tooth and provided a composite solution which should last a long time, holding off the need of a crown. Again the crown would have been acceptable. The staff, Dr Margeas, the complete experience is why he is one of the best globally and most caring dentist I have been more

Dr. Margeas is amazing in so many ways. First of all—he is brilliant! His knowledge in the field of dentistry cannot be matched. And he is articulate. He can communicate with his patients at any level. But more than that, he is a sincere person who really cares about the world and the people in it—he is genuine in his concern for each patient and is really interested in each of their lives. The entire team at IDG is always so positive and makes the visit a comfortable and pleasant experience. Thank you, Dr. Margeas!read more

On behalf of my wife this review: Dr Margeas along with his assistant Jana, are the two most incredible people and team I have ever worked with. My case was very extensive to include five crowns and ten veneers. Never in my life have I been able to bite like I can now. My teeth fit perfectly. The esthetics they achieved with the lab are completely natural looking. Dr. Margeas is a world renowned dentist, who by his demeanor, you would never know. Humble, kind and gracious don't even explain him or his skills. Forever, I am indebted to his team for the incredible work that he did on my case. Know with absolute confidence that Dr. Margeas and Jana will treat you with the best care possible with results exceeding more
