Full Mouth Reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction is a customized plan that works to not only improve the aesthetics of your smile, but to also enhance your oral health and functionality. It protects your oral health by ensuring the healthy functioning of the hard and soft tissues of the mouth, including the teeth, jawbone, cheeks, gums, and the connective tissue holding the structures in your mouth together.

The Procedure for Full Mouth Reconstruction

Patients visiting our practice for full mouth reconstruction will undergo thorough oral examination for us to determine which procedures they need. We will also need previous dental records as well as impressions and models of your bite to understand your oral health and smile goals.

Once we have all the required information, we will create a step-by-step plan for your treatment, which can take up to a year or more depending on the number and extent of the procedures required. All your treatment options will be discussed with you during your initial consultation. You will also receives estimates for the various options to help you make your decision.

Dr. Fox may decide that your treatment plan will include treatment for periodontal (gum) disease, such as root planing and scaling. You may also require soft tissue or bone grafts to rebuild your gums and jaw bone. This is especially true if Dr. Fox discovers deep pockets, irregular gum tissue or insufficient bone density.

If your jaw or bite needs to be adjusted, then you may need occlusal treatment before undergoing full mouth reconstruction as part of your overall treatment plan. To finish up your restoration, Dr. Fox may suggest teeth whitening, new crowns, or veneers.
