Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for You?

Your mouth is a vital part of your body. In addition to eating and speaking, a beautiful smile can go a long way toward making an excellent first impression. Tooth decay and gum disease, as well as injury and even age, can all have an impact on the appearance, function, and health of your mouth. All of these factors contribute to an unattractive smile. We can perform a full mouth reconstruction here at Rockwall Oral Surgery to restore the health, beauty, and function of your smile! 

What Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction is a procedure in which your entire mouth is rebuilt and restored. A full mouth reconstruction is similar to a smile makeover, but it focuses on the health of your mouth as well as the appearance of your smile. 

The procedures vary depending on your specific needs, but they may include reconstructing your upper and lower jaws, treating oral health issues, and restoring or replacing damaged or missing teeth. Our team of experts has a wealth of knowledge and can handle all of your mouth reconstruction needs. 

What Are the Procedures Involved?

A full mouth reconstruction can involve various procedures, and the procedures used in your mouth are tailored to your specific needs. The following procedures are included in a full mouth reconstruction: 

  • Aesthetic restorations for teeth (crowns, veneers, dental bonding, and composite resin fillings are examples) 
  • Orthodontic treatments (braces or aligners are examples)
  • Oral surgery to realign the bite and reposition the jaw 
  • Whitening your teeth 
  • Periodontal therapy 
  • Gum recontouring 
  • Root canal treatments 
  • Dental implants 

Who Is a Candidate for a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Candidates for full mouth reconstruction have lost or damaged teeth, whether due to wear, bruxism, or erosion. We’ll conduct a thorough examination to see if a full mouth reconstruction is right for you. This exam consists of the following sections: 

  • Examining the mouth’s overall appearance. We’ll take a look at your teeth in general, noting any that are misshapen or discolored. We’ll also look at your face to see if anything seems unbalanced. 
  • Examining the teeth themselves. We’ll look for signs of decay as well as other damages like cracks, chips, and fractures. We can determine the best restorative options based on the issues discovered. 
  • Examining the gums. We’ll also look over your gums for signs of gum disease, recession, and anything else unusual, such as lesions. 
  • Examining the jaw. We can assess the condition of your jaw with the help of x-rays. We will evaluate for bone loss, alignment issues, and fractures. We can also check for signs of infection in the periodontal ligaments that hold your teeth in place.
