Full Mouth Restoration

Full mouth reconstruction or restoration is the process of simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.

The dentist will typically perform procedures like crowns, bridges, veneers, as well as specialized treatments like orthodontists, implants, oral surgery and Endodontists (root canal).

If you think you need full mouth restoration, the dentist will start by performing a comprehensive examination to determine the extent of the problem and your treatment options. The following will need to be examined:

  • The condition of your teeth, including cavities, decay, tooth wear and other issues.
  • Gum tissue - Any issues with your gums will need to be addressed. This is important as your newly reconstructed teeth will need a solid foundation.
  • Your jaw muscles.
  • Shape and size of your teeth.

Procedures that may be required for a full mouth restoration

Your dentist will determine what procedures are needed for your specific case. Most full mouth reconstructions involve multiple visits to the dental office. The time it takes depends on your specific situation.

These are the most common procedures typically performed:

  • Teeth cleaning and gums care.
  • Repositioning the jaw.
  • Contouring of the gum tissue.
  • Preparation of your natural tooth structure so crowns, bridges or veneers can be placed.
  • Orthodontics (braces) in order to move your teeth into the optimal position for reconstruction.
  • Implant placement and restoration.
  • Bone or soft tissue grafting to enhance the stability of your teeth, proposed implants and/or other restorations.
