Full Mouth Reconstruction is the systematic approach to restoring all (or nearly all) of your teeth at the same time. There are different reasons for needing this full-mouth restoration treatment.
- teeth that are severely worn down due to conditions like Bruxism
- multiple missing teeth
- a deep bite (the top teeth bite too far down over the bottom teeth)
- patients who want instant orthodontics (using porcelain veneers, bridges, or other restorations on all of the teeth to ideally reshape and reposition the teeth)
- severe decay in all or most of the teeth
- severe erosion of the enamel
- congenital disorders that cause missing teeth, missing enamel, or poorly-formed teeth
- traumatic injury to the mouth/teeth
Who should be considered for a full mouth reconstruction?
Full mouth restoration is a complex and comprehensive treatment which requires a lot of experience. FMR can correct orthodontic problems, congenital tooth defects, and even years of neglect, abuse, or wear. While the initial aesthetic improvements can be seen very quickly, this treatment is by no means an “instant makeover.” It is complex and comprehensive treatment which requires a lot of experience as well as thoughtful planning and precise attention to detail in order to achieve a highly aesthetic, healthy, functional, and long lasting result and could take a few months to complete depending on the severity of the case.
Starting with a consultation visit, thorough exam, and numerous detailed measurements and records, we create a diagnostic wax-up (or blueprint plan) of the entire procedure. We plan the aesthetic and functional outcomes before we even begin your actual treatment. Only after we have this comprehensive plan in place do we start the work on your teeth and mouth. This treatment will be done with by a team of specialists who have years of experience in managing such cases.
This procedure is one of the most advanced treatments available in cosmetic/general dentistry, and requires time and patience on both the patients and dentists part.
