Full-Mouth Reconstruction Candidates
A full-mouth reconstruction can treat any combination of:
- Broken, chipped, or fractured teeth
- Missing teeth
- Advanced decay or infection in one or multiple teeth
- Malocclusion (misaligned bite)
- Periodontal (gum) disease
- Damaged chewing surfaces or worn enamel due to bruxism (teeth grinding)
- TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder
- Failed dental restorations
Regardless of the state of your smile, we can use advanced technology and techniques to fully restore health, function, and esthetics.
Planning Your Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Dr. Miller will work closely with you to carefully plan your full-mouth reconstruction. We will first assess your oral health and review your dental records to determine which combination of treatments will work best to help you achieve your desired results. We will also use an intraoral camera to examine your teeth and gums and take panoramic digital X-rays to evaluate the underlying structures of your teeth and jawbone. Dr. Miller will take your esthetic and medical concerns into account when designing your customized full-mouth reconstruction treatment strategy. We will also provide wax-ups and models of your restorations so that you can ensure they fit properly and meet your expectations.
Treatments Included in a Full-Mouth Reconstruction
A full-mouth reconstruction treatment typically includes a custom combination of restorative dentistry procedures:
- Dental Implants: These small posts, made of zirconia or titanium, are surgically implanted in the jaw to replace lost tooth roots. After surgery, the implants become permanently fused with your jawbone, making them a stable anchor for crowns, bridges, and dentures.
- Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are custom tooth-shaped caps placed over damaged teeth to lend support and protection following treatment for decay or trauma. Crowns can also restore a single dental implant to replace a missing tooth.
- Dentures: If you are missing most or all of your teeth, we may recommend a partial or complete denture as part of your full-mouth reconstruction plan. We offer traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures, which offer a more secure hold.
- Dental Bridges: A dental bridge replaces consecutive missing teeth. It is held in place with either two adjacent dental crowns or dental implants.
- Onlays and Inlays: These custom, tooth-colored restorations can repair the biting surfaces of molars.
Depending on your goals, we may incorporate one or several of our cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as teeth whitening and veneers, to enhance the appearance of your smile.
