Rebuild Your Smile with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
A full-mouth reconstruction might seem daunting, but it can not only give you a winning smile but also help improve the function of your mouth. You can have a better bite, improved jawbone function, and a greater ability to speak. Every full-mouth reconstruction is different and will depend on each patient’s particular needs. However, rest assured that you can truly rebuild your smile.
Dr. Mohamad El-Kheir or Dr. Matthew Gemp at Evolution Dentistry in Houston, TX will meet with you for a consultation and exam to determine what you require to complete a full-mouth reconstruction. The procedures required might include bridges, inlays, veneers, dentures, implants, or crowns. In some cases, you may even need to undergo a bone or gum graft. Dr. Kheir or Dr. Gemp will present you with a treatment plan outlining suggestions. All full-mouth reconstructions are performed at Evolution Dentistry in Houston, TX.
All about a full-mouth reconstruction
A full-mouth reconstruction is an option if you have lost several teeth or have teeth with large fillings. In some situations, your teeth might have gaps. It is common to have excessive tooth decay, broken teeth, or teeth that have been ground down from chronic teeth grinding (bruxism).
Many people seeking full-mouth reconstruction have a genetic disorder, including:
Ectodermal dysplasia: Missing teeth since birth
Amelogenesis imperfecta: Small teeth
Dentinogenesis imperfecta: Translucent or stained teeth
Any of the above dental conditions may require a full-mouth reconstruction to fix.
In some cases, you might have crowns that you want replaced to achieve a more vibrant, younger-looking smile.
Many patients seeking a full-mouth reconstruction have degraded gums, sunken cheeks, or facial deformities. A full-mouth reconstruction can not only improve the appearance of your teeth but also impact your facial features.
Dr. Kheir or Dr. Gemp will examine your jaw, teeth, and gums to develop a personalized treatment plan and discuss your sedation choices during the process.
Once you agree to the treatment plan, the team at Evolution Dentistry in Houston, TX will schedule the needed procedures for your full-mouth reconstruction. In almost all situations, a full-mouth reconstruction will require several visits, so you’ll need to take each procedure a step at a time.
Recovery after a full-mouth reconstruction
Your recovery time will vary depending on what procedure you have undergone. Typically, Dr. Kheir or Dr. Gemp will prescribe antibiotics prior to the procedure to clear up any oral infections you might be suffering from. On the day of the procedure, we will prescribe pain medication to help combat any discomfort or swelling. You might be instructed to only eat soft foods after the procedure.
Once your full-mouth reconstruction has taken place, you’ll need to maintain your oral health with daily brushing and flossing. You’ll also need to undergo regular dental exams and twice-a-year cleanings.
