Full Mouth Reconstruction
Pauly Dental in Wichita, Kansas
What is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Full-mouth reconstruction involves doing several dental procedures at one time to restore or replace all of the teeth in the lower or upper jaw. It is sometimes referred to as full-mouth restoration and full-mouth rehabilitation. A full-mouth reconstruction will not only give you a beautiful smile, but it will also improve your quality of life.
Keep in mind that a full-mouth reconstruction is not the same as a smile makeover. A smile makeover is an elective cosmetic procedure that is done for the sole purpose of improving your smile. A full-mouth reconstruction is something that is necessary.
Are You a Candidate for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
You may be a good candidate for full-mouth reconstruction if you have lost teeth due to gum disease, illness or injury. You may also be a good candidate for full-mouth reconstruction if you have severely-damaged teeth. If your teeth are worn out due to acid reflux, certain beverages and foods, then you may be able to get this procedure. Additionally, if you have an off bite that is causing you jaw pain, then you may be able to get a full-mouth reconstruction.
What is done during a full-mouth reconstruction will depend on the extent of the damage. Your dentist may recommend that you get gum implants, veneers, bridges and crowns. Your dentist will customize a treatment plan you for that will outline everything that will be done. It will also give an estimate how long the treatment will take.
Cost of a Full-Mouth Reconstruction
There are many factors that will affect the cost of a full-mouth reconstruction. However, a portion of the cost may be covered by your dental insurance plan. You may also be able to get third-party financing. In some cases full mouth reconstruction is a costly treatment, but the beautiful and healthy smile that you get, and the confidence you will gain, will make it worth it.
