Can I Get a Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
You might be a good candidate for a full-mouth reconstruction if you have lost a few teeth or have several teeth with larger fillings that need to be replaced. You might also be a good candidate if you have teeth with significant decay or have cracked, broken, or badly worn-down teeth. Dental ailments or a hereditary disorder that causes teeth to never develop, teeth that are too small, or translucent or discolored teeth would all require extensive restoration. Some people find themselves wanting a full-mouth reconstruction to replace old crowns, or just to improve the comfort of their mouth in general.
How Will My Full-Mouth Reconstruction Work?
After examining your gums, teeth, and jaw, one of our skilled dentists may recommend a full-mouth reconstruction. This personalized treatment program will be made to fit the needs of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular joints), facial muscles, and dental bite. We will provide treatment, therapy, and sedation recommendations during your consultation to ensure your treatment strategy fits your wants, goals, and concerns. From there, your full-mouth reconstruction will be scheduled. You should expect it to take a few visits to KFA Dental Excellence in order to complete your full-mouth reconstruction.
What Will My Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery Be Like?
Since your full-mouth reconstruction will likely take a number of appointments, your KFA Dental Excellence dentist will explain what to expect and how to take care of your mouth. We may prescribe antibiotics or pain medication if it is a necessary component of recovery. You may experience some swelling or discomfort following your procedures. Implant placement will likely make it hard to chew so a liquid or soft food diet might be right for you in that case. After your full-mouth reconstruction is fully complete, it's important that you keep up your oral health with good brushing and flossing at home. Annual dental examinations and biannual cleanings will be beneficial as well.
