What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

When all parts of your mouth don’t work together in balance, health becomes compromised causing a range of problems. From missing teeth and gum disease, to bite misalignments and teeth grinding – all of these issues need to be addressed to bring healthy function and appearance back to a smile. This is where full mouth reconstruction comes in.

At Precision Dentistry & Implants, Dr. Matthew Huff performs full mouth reconstruction by combining several restorative, cosmetic, and general dentistry treatments to fully rehabilitate patients’ smiles.

Who is a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

If you have multiple cosmetic flaws or dental health issues, you may be a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction. Left untreated, an unhealthy mouth can lead to extensive oral damage and lead to overall health problems such as heart disease. If you experience any of these conditions, you may be a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction:

  • Missing teeth
  • Untreated gum disease
  • Chipped or injured teeth
  • Teeth that are severely worn from grinding (bruxism) or long-term acid erosion (caused by acid reflux or consuming certain foods and beverages)
  • Ongoing jaw pain, headaches, or other facial discomforts that might signal a need for bite adjustment (occlusion)

The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process

Full mouth reconstruction combines a variety of dental procedures in order to repair damaged teeth, replace missing teeth, improve bite, and reverse gum and other mouth diseases. Any of these dental treatments can be performed independently, but full mouth reconstruction brings several together in a comprehensive plan to achieve the results you desire.

Dr. Huff loves working with his patients one-on-one, discussing their goals, and creating customized reconstruction plans to help them reach those goals. He can combine treatments from the following areas to fully reconstruction your smile.

Restorative Dentistry – Dr. Huff can use traditional dental implants, mini dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures to replace missing teeth. Damaged and decayed teeth can be restored with crowns.

Cosmetic Treatments – To restore beauty to the appearance of your smile, Dr. Huff offers porcelain veneers to cover imperfections and teeth whitening to give you a brighter look. He also offers orthodontics, featuring 6 Month Smiles® and Invisalign®, to straighten a misaligned bite that not only looks unpleasing but can also cause issues such as TMJ.

Other Comprehensive Services – Other issues such as TMJ disorder, teeth grinding, and gum disease may also need to be treated as part of your comprehensive plan to restore health and balance to your mouth.

Oftentimes, Dr. Huff can complete multiple procedures during one office visit. He is trained in IV sedation to help you remain relaxed and calm during longer treatment appointments.
