Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive dental treatment plan that aims to restore or replace all teeth in the upper and lower jaws through the use of dental implants.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth.
The process starts with a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth, gums, and jaw structure, including diagnostic tests such as x-rays and dental impressions. Treatment options will vary depending on the individual’s needs, but typically include the extraction of damaged or decayed teeth, placement of dental implants, abutments, crowns, bridges, and gum or bone grafting procedures.
The specific treatments involved in a dental implant full mouth reconstruction can differ for each patient. However, commonly involved procedures include extraction of damaged teeth, placement of dental implants, abutments, and crowns or bridges on the implants, as well as gum or bone grafting procedures to enhance the stability and aesthetics of the implants.
The ultimate goal of full mouth reconstruction is to enhance the function and appearance of the patient’s teeth and mouth while also improving their oral health and overall quality of life. It’s important to note that not all patients are suitable candidates for this process and a thorough evaluation by a dental professional is necessary. Full mouth reconstruction generally takes several months to complete and involves multiple appointments with a team of dental specialists.
