Let Full Mouth Reconstruction Give You Back Your Smile
When a patient has a large amount of damage or decay to most or all of their teeth, a full mouth reconstruction can restore not only their smile, but also their quality of life. A full mouth reconstruction can be achieved in a single procedure, or a combination of cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures. Pope Dental is able to provide all of these procedures to patients in the Walnut Creek area.
What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is exactly what it sounds like: All the vital parts of the mouth receive a complete and total makeover, so that your ability to smile, chew food and talk are restored. Every patient’s needs are unique, so the treatment methods used in one person’s reconstruction may be different from the next person.
Some procedures included in a full mouth reconstruction might include:
- Dental implants
- Porcelain bridge or bridges
A full mouth reconstruction can directly or indirectly impact every tooth in a patient’s mouth. In addition to pain relief from damaged or missing teeth, a reconstruction dramatically improves a patient’s life in many ways.
Another Option: All-on-Four Treatment
All-on-four is a full mouth reconstruction procedure that’s sometimes called “Teeth-in-a-Day.” Rather than a series of procedures, an all-on-four is a single procedure using a series of dental implants.
Dental implants are placed in the top of the mouth and in four locations in the bottom of the mouth. Your completely new sets of teeth (arches) are then attached to the implants permanently. With proper care and brushing, these should last the rest of your life.
Who Needs a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is a decision that is made between you and your dentist. We will consult with you about your smile goals and reasons why you may want a full mouth reconstruction, and proceed from there.
In general, patients who have plenty of remaining healthy jawbone structure are good candidates for a full reconstruction. If you have many damaged or missing teeth due to oral cancer, a traumatic accident or injury, or for some other reason, a full mouth reconstruction can be a life-changing treatment for you.
