The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process

The specifics of the full mouth reconstruction process are different for every patient, but the first step is always the same: you will need to schedule a consultation with your dentist. We will take a look at your mouth and ask about your goals for your treatment. After we have gathered the necessary information, we can create a treatment plan that has been personalized for your unique smile.

Your full mouth reconstruction might include any of the following procedures:

  • Periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing to fight gum disease.
  • Customized crowns and fillings to repair damaged teeth.
  • Dental bridges and other solutions for missing teeth.
  • Cosmetic dentistry for improving any aspects of the appearance of your smile that you’re unhappy with.

Before we move forward with any treatments, we will take the time to explain why we’re recommending them, and we’ll make sure that you understand what the cost and timeline will look like.

Before you book your consultation, though, you may want to know more about the road ahead. Of course, we will be happy to answer all of your questions when you visit us. In the meantime, we invite you to take a look at the following list of full mouth reconstruction FAQs.

How Long Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Take?

The timeline for full mouth reconstruction varies from case to case. For some patients, the process takes just a few weeks. For others, their journey can last for a year or longer. That is particularly true of individuals who need extensive treatments, such as orthodontia or dental implants with multiple preliminary procedures.

During your consultation, we will attempt to provide a rough estimate of how long your full mouth reconstruction will take. Whenever possible, we will perform multiple treatments simultaneously so you can achieve results as quickly as possible.

How Long Will My Full Mouth Reconstruction Results Last?

Different treatments have varying lifespans. For example, dental implants have the potential to last throughout your lifetime, while the restorations on top of them might endure for 10 years or longer. Dental crowns and other restorations can also last a long time.

Of course, the longevity of your results depends partially on you. You should be diligent about sticking to a thorough oral hygiene routine and attending regular dental checkups.

Does Getting a Full Mouth Reconstruction Hurt?

We strive to ensure that our patients are as comfortable as possible during their procedures. We do so by providing gentle care and plenty of local anesthesia. If we refer you to a local specialist for any part of your full mouth reconstruction, they may use sedation during invasive procedures.

After any sedation or anesthesia wears off, you can expect to experience some soreness. The recovery time for various procedures may be anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. You can reduce discomfort by carefully following post-op instructions.

How Do I Care for My Smile After Full Mouth Reconstruction?

After your full mouth reconstruction is complete, you will need to take steps to protect your results. Here are some practical tips:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day.
  • Attend a cleaning and checkup with our team twice a year.
  • Wear a mouthguard to prevent teeth grinding if necessary.
  • Wear a mouthguard when you play sports.
  • Consume a nutritious, balanced diet.
  • Do not bite down on hard objects, such as ice or pen caps.
  • Monitor your oral health and book an appointment with us if you suspect something is amiss.
