Am I a Candidate for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Each full-mouth reconstruction takes a unique approach to meeting the needs of individual patients. This collection of procedures can work to help you overcome a range of conditions, including severe wear on teeth from mechanical or chemical erosion, cracked or broken teeth, severe tooth decay, and missing teeth. You may also benefit from full-mouth reconstructive care if you have misshapen or abnormally small teeth, teeth that never developed fully, translucent or mottled teeth, or genetic disorders affecting the teeth. In some cases, bridges, crowns, or fillings that have been in your mouth for some time may no longer function properly or are breaking down. To help you get the comprehensive care you need for a beautiful smile and fully support your oral health, our dentists may partner with specialists to provide gum or bone grafting and other types of more complex care.
What Happens During a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Treatment?
Before planning your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan, one of our dentists will meet with you to learn more about your oral concerns and preferences for your smile outcomes. We listen closely to what you have to say and collaborate closely with you to choose the options that best meet your expectations. Digital x-rays and 3D cone beam scans will be taken to give us a comprehensive look at your total oral health, and study models of your teeth will be created so that we can precisely plan your procedures. We will check your jaw joints (TMJ), your bite (how upper and lower teeth bite together), and evaluate your facial profile. After all the necessary data about your oral health and desired results are collected, our team will review your treatment plan and present your options. Full-mouth reconstruction may be anywhere from a single to several dental procedures and is often performed in stages. If you are nervous about receiving treatment, nitrous oxide gas and oral-conscious sedation can also be provided to ensure a relaxing experience.
Throughout the entire treatment process, our team will remain committed to your comfort and will be available to answer any questions or address any concerns that arise. We construct full-mouth treatment to simultaneously restore comfort, health, function, and appearance to your smile, whether your needs are minor or more extensive. Our Made Ya Smile Dental team is highly experienced in all phases of dentistry and takes a gentle approach to make sure your smile gets the attention it needs. Full-mouth treatments may include procedures, such as dental implants, crowns or bridges, bonding or porcelain veneers, inlays or onlays, tooth extractions, teeth whitening, TMJ care, and root canal therapy. We may partner with other dental specialists for orthodontics, bone grafting, and certain periodontal treatments, like gum grafting, if you need this type of care to enjoy optimal oral health.
What Happens After a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Treatment?
Our team will be sure to keep you informed of your treatment, progress, and the next step during every phase of your care. After each procedure, we will give you any required post-op instructions and prepare you for what is next to come. Brushing and flossing tips, along with other adjunctive care modalities, will be provided by our team to ensure you maintain good oral health throughout the process. You may notice minor swelling or discomfort following certain procedures, depending on your needs. Cold compresses, nonprescription pain medication, and a diet of soft foods can help keep you comfortable during this time. Following the completion of your treatment and while you are undergoing your care, we recommend that you keep up with meticulous home care and schedule routine visits with our team for cleanings and exams. During these visits, we will continue to evaluate your new restorations along with your teeth, gums, and jawbone health.
Will Insurance Cover My Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
The treatments that make up your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan may be covered, at least in part, by your dental insurance plan. Prior to starting your procedures, our business team will get in touch with your provider to review your coverage details and determine your out-of-pocket total mouth reconstruction cost. We want you to have access to the care you need for an attractive and healthy smile. During your consultation, we will work to provide treatment solutions that meet your needs, goals, and budget. Made Ya Smile Dental is proud to accept several easy payment options, including low-to-no interest financing plans with CareCredit®.
