Full Mouth Reconstruction/ Rehabilitation

 
(201) 840-0045

The human mouth comprises many tissues, both soft and hard. Soft tissues include the gums, tongue, inner cheeks, and lips. Hard tissues include the teeth and jawbone. There are also connective tissues that hold the various structures of the mouth together, as well as nerves and blood vessels. The relationship between the upper and lower teeth and their relationship with the jaw joints are referred to as occlusion, or the bite. The healthy functioning of the human mouth depends on all of these systems working together in harmony. When all components do not work together in balance, oral health becomes compromised.

Reconstructive dentistry refers to the set of procedures designed to replace missing teeth, repair damaged teeth, correct improperly seated jaw joints and faulty bites, address jawbone and gum damage, replace worn-out dental work, and, in some cases, treat diseases of the mouth. Each of these reconstructive procedures may be performed independently, but when multiple oral health problems exist, full mouth reconstruction may be advised. Also known as full mouth restoration, full mouth reconstruction can include any combination of the following:

  • Restorative dental treatments: dental crowns, bridges, fillings, inlays, and onlays
  • Implant dentistry: dental implants to replace missing teeth, replicating them from root to crown
  • Cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental bonding, and gum re-contouring
  • Neuromuscular dentistry/TMD treatment : correction of problems involving the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) and the bite
  • Bruxism treatments: therapy to resolve teeth grinding and associated symptoms
  • Orthodontics: Invisalign® and Vivera retainers
  • Oral surgery: root canal therapy, soft and hard tissue grafting, and tooth extractions
  • Periodontal treatment: scaling, root planning, and periodontal surgery

 

As the name implies, full mouth reconstruction refers to rebuilding and/or replacing all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Full mouth reconstructions combine esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function, and beauty of the mouth. It will essentially provide not only a "smile makeover", but improved chewing efficiency for the patient.

Potential full mouth reconstruction patients may exhibit :

  • multiple missing teeth

  • numerous teeth with large fillings that are failing or exhibiting decay

  • cracked or broken teeth

  • badly worn teeth due to bruxism (teeth grinding)  

  • other habits

The treatments can include:

  • Crowns

  • Onlays

  • Bridges

  • Dentures and Partials
