Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction diagram

Believe it or not, millions of people are having problems with the majority of their teeth. Many are badly damaged and are causing pain. Full mouth reconstruction is the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.

The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:

  • Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma
  • Badly injured or fractured teeth
  • Teeth that become worn down as a result of long-term acid erosion or tooth grinding
  • Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring changes to the bite

How does a full mouth reconstruction differ from a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is typically a cosmetic procedure to help a patient with smaller dental problems, while a full mouth restoration usually involves extractions and the need for custom fabricated new teeth. As dental materials evolve it is becoming hard to draw a line between purely “cosmetic” (such as elective) dentistry and “restorative” dentistry. If you need full mouth reconstruction, the materials available today make it possible for you to have functional and clinically sound treatments that also look natural, and in most cases here at Uptown are performed in just one day.
