What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction, also called full mouth rehabilitation, is a complex restorative treatment that repairs or replaces all of a patient’s teeth and other vital oral structures in a single procedure or series of visits. 

Full mouth reconstruction takes a comprehensive approach to oral health. This process can involve multiple cosmetic and restorative procedures like dental implants, crowns, veneers, gum grafts, and orthodontics. Dr. Flax customizes these treatments to meet your exact oral health needs and smile goals.

What to Expect During Full Mouth Reconstruction at Flax Dental

Full mouth reconstruction is a complex, carefully planned process. Dr. Flax makes sure you understand what to expect every step of the way.

Initial Consultation

The process begins with comprehensive exams at our Atlanta cosmetic dentistry office. During your comprehensive exam, Dr. Flax will assess your oral health before taking digital scans, photos, and impressions. 

He’ll also analyze your facial features, bite alignment, and jaw position before discussing your aesthetic goals and treatment options. Based on all the gathered information, Dr. Flax will create your individualized reconstruction plan. 

Oral Health Care

Before beginning restorative treatments, Dr. Flax will also provide necessary treatments to restore oral health, including tooth extraction, gum disease treatment, or root canal therapy. 

Restoring Your Smile

If you need dental implants to replace missing teeth, Dr. Flax will place them and allow osseointegration to begin over the next few months. 

He’ll place your permanent restorations once the dental implants firmly bond with the jaw through osseointegration. We’ll finalize your new restorations by methodically adjusting the placement and bite for ideal fit and function.

Follow-Up Appointments

As you grow accustomed to living with a radiant smile, Dr. Flax will monitor your healing and make any necessary adjustments. He’ll check that your reconstructed bite and jaw alignment are comfortable as you adjust to the feel. 

If needed, we can refine the aesthetics of your new smile. Dr. Flax also provides detailed oral hygiene instructions to protect your dental work. With his internationally renowned oversight, you’ll quickly adapt to your revitalized smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

When are dental implants used in full mouth reconstruction?

Your dentist may use implants to replace individual teeth or support bridges during reconstruction. Implants restore chewing function, prevent bone loss, and enable optimal durability of tooth restorations.

How long does full mouth reconstruction treatment take?

Treatment length depends on the scope of restoration required. Simple cases may involve six to eight visits over two to four months. Extensive reconstructions with significant implants may take nine to 12 months to complete.

What kind of special care is required after full mouth reconstruction?

Strict oral hygiene is essential for protecting your dental work. Your dentist will give you detailed home care instructions for cleaning teeth, implants, and dental appliances. They’ll monitor your adjusted bite at follow-ups. Avoid hard, sticky foods that could damage restorations. 

Visit your dentist for professional cleanings and exams every three to six months. Proper care maximizes the longevity of your reconstructed smile.

Is full mouth reconstruction painful?

Your dentist should use advanced techniques and technology to maximize comfort. Local anesthesia is used during surgical procedures like extractions and implant placement. Mild post-op sensitivity can be managed with over-the-counter medication.
