Q & A

What is full mouth reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is a term used to describe a combination of dental treatments. An outstanding reconstruction, however, goes far beyond a simple list of individual treatments. The team at Dental Excellence of Parkesburg begins by performing a thorough assessment of not only your teeth and gums but also your bone structure and the contouring of your smile. 

The planning stage is one of the most important parts of full mouth reconstruction. You’re expected to play an active role in deciding which treatments most closely align with your needs and goals. There are pros and cons to consider, and your practitioner will guide you toward the options best suited for you.

Some of the treatments that might be included in a full mouth reconstruction are:

  • Fillings
  • Root canal
  • Dental implants
  • Bridges
  • Crowns
  • Dentures

Just as no two people have the exact same smile, everyone has a unique experience with full mouth reconstruction.

Who needs full mouth reconstruction?

Many people find themselves in need of full mouth reconstruction. Some have lived with many years of advanced dental decay or untreated gum disease and need to repair or replace multiple teeth.

In other cases, dental damage occurs with little warning. Traumatic injury can break, crack, or knock out multiple teeth. Sports injuries are also common and can cause significant damage. 

Certain medications or medical treatments can cause problems with your teeth and gums. Some people are born with conditions that affect normal tooth development and require extensive reconstruction to create a healthy and attractive smile.

No matter what brings you in for full mouth reconstruction, you can rest assured that you’ll be treated with care, respect, and compassion. The team at Dental Excellence of Parkesburg loves the process of helping patients learn to love their smiles, and they’re happy to work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.  

How long will my full mouth reconstruction take?

Because no two full mouth reconstructions are alike, everyone has their own timeline for treatment. Depending on your specific needs, some treatments may need to be done before others can begin. 

For example, if you need to have one or more teeth extracted prior to moving forward with reconstruction, a period of healing may need to occur before the next stage of the process. Dental implants also require healing as your bone tissue fuses to the implanted post(s). 

During your initial consultation, your practitioner goes over your options as well as an idea of the timeline for all treatments. You’re encouraged to ask questions and express concerns as they arise.

When you’re ready to begin, call the office to book a visit. Online scheduling is also an option and is fast and easy.
