Full Mouth Reconstruction Q & A

Farhoumand Dentistry

What does full mouth reconstruction mean?

Full mouth reconstruction involves procedures that restore the mouth to its former appearance and function. A full mouth reconstruction is usually done over several appointments. Some of the things Included in a full mouth reconstruction can be:

  • Root canal therapy
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Fillings
  • Orthodontics
  • Root planing

Virtually any dental procedure can be part of a full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Foad and Dr. Farah customize full mouth reconstructions for each patient's specific needs.

Who is a candidate for full mouth reconstruction?

If you have at least two distinct dental problems that require attention, you might be a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. Generally, full mouth reconstruction patients have tooth damage significant enough to interfere with their mouth’s function and appearance.

Full mouth reconstruction candidates typically have one or more of the following:

  • Disease that originates in the mouth and damages the gums, teeth, or jaw
  • Moderate to severe tooth decay, which may include tooth loss
  • Injury that causes tooth loss or serious damage to the teeth

If you're a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Foad and Dr. Farah will work with you to determine the specific procedures that will help you best.

How long does a full mouth reconstruction take?

The timeframe for a full mouth reconstruction varies based on the procedures you may need. Plan to have several appointments, which will typically occur over at least a few months. If you need an extensive reconstruction, it might take a year or more.

Dr. Foad and Dr. Farah will discuss the time frame with you so you can plan ahead.

Is a full mouth reconstruction a smile makeover?

Although you'll get a more attractive smile after a full mouth reconstruction, that's not the primary goal.

With a smile makeover, the goal is to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile, while full mouth reconstructions seek to restore function and oral health first. The beautiful new smile is a great side benefit to a full mouth reconstruction, but your main benefit will be using your teeth normally again at last.
