What Is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Multiple areas of decay or damage throughout the mouth can impair your ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence. A full-mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment approach that can improve the health, appearance, and function of your oral structures. Full-mouth restoration at Byers Station Dental is a treatment plan of two or more procedures that rebuild damaged teeth and other oral structures and restore a healthy, beautiful smile. While each treatment plan is curated for individual needs, these procedures may include dental crowns, dental bridges, veneers, dental implants, or dentures, among other services. Our skilled general dentists perform full-mouth rehabilitation to help rejuvenate both the health of your mouth and the appearance of your smile. Find out more about the benefits of this comprehensive approach to care by contacting our Chester Springs, PA facility.
Am I a Candidate for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Full-mouth reconstruction may be ideal if you have one or more of the following dental concerns:
- Multiple cracked, worn, or broken teeth
- Widespread tooth decay (cavities)
- Extensive tooth loss
- Congenitally missing teeth
- Old or damaged fillings or crowns
- Bone loss or gum recession
- Jaw or facial trauma
- Genetic conditions impacting oral health
In more complex cases, bone or tooth loss may lead to sunken cheeks or other changes in facial structure. Full-mouth reconstruction can help to rejuvenate the entire face by replenishing lost bone and replacing missing teeth.
What Is the Treatment Process?
After examining your mouth and talking with you about your concerns, our dentists might recommend full-mouth reconstruction. The procedures included in your full-mouth treatment program will be selected based on the condition of your teeth, gum and bone tissues, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, and bite, as well as your personal oral health goals. As soon as your personalized plan is created, our team will discuss what to expect during your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your appointments accordingly. Generally speaking, a full-mouth reconstruction may take place over the course of a few weeks or months, depending on your treatment needs. Our dentists may coordinate treatment with other specialists, in some cases, for certain types of procedures.
Recovery After Full-Mouth Treatment
After every treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, we will provide instructions on how to care for your mouth. You may experience swelling or tenderness following certain dental procedures. Our dentists may recommend pain medication or other palliative remedies to ease your comfort as you recover. Throughout the treatment process, and once your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, it is important to keep up with good oral hygiene each day. When you visit Byers Station Dental for routine dental exams, our dentists will continually monitor the condition of your teeth, gums, jaw, and restorations.
Insurance Coverage for Your Care
In your consultation, our dentists will create your own treatment strategy based on your oral health goals, needs, and budget. Our business team can then review any dental insurance benefits you have and help you maximize coverage for your full-mouth care. To help make covering out-of-pocket expenses more convenient for you, Byers Station Dental accepts a range of simple payment options.
