What is a full mouth reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction combines several restorative procedures to restore a patient’s oral health and function.
If you are missing many or all of your teeth, then you may need a full mouth reconstruction. A full mouth reconstruction replaces all of your teeth, both your upper and lower teeth. A full set of teeth is essential for a healthy and beautiful smile.
There are three main reasons why you should undergo full mouth reconstruction:
- To improve the appearance of your smile by correcting multiple functional and aesthetic issues.
- To restore some or all of your teeth.
- To improve your oral health by addressing underlying issues.
How is Full Mouth Reconstruction Done?
Full mouth reconstruction (FMR) is a dental treatment plan that combines several cosmetic and restorative dental procedures to address many different dental problems at once. FMR treatments can repair tooth decay, fix chipped, broken, or missing teeth, make the smile more aesthetically pleasing, and improve overall oral health.
The procedure of full mouth reconstruction begins with a full mouth dental examination, including x-rays and dental impressions. Then, your dentist will put together a treatment plan that outlines every procedure necessary to restore your smile.
What does full mouth reconstruction involve?
Full mouth reconstruction is a complex procedure and can require multiple treatments. However, the process will be tailored to your individual needs and can include the following:
- Dental veneers
- Dental bonding
- Dental implants
- Gum treatments
- Root canal therapy
- Teeth whitening
What are the advantages of undergoing full mouth reconstruction?
