Full-Mouth Reconstruction in Houston, TX

What precisely is full-mouth reconstruction?

Whole-mouth reconstruction may improve the health, function, and appearance of your gums, teeth, and jawbone for better biting, speaking, and a more attractive grin. At Evolution Dentistry, full-mouth restoration may include (but is not limited to) onlays, inlays, bridges, crowns, veneers, implants, and dentures. Certain full-mouth reconstruction procedures may necessitate a bone or gum graft as well. At our Houston, TX office, Drs. Mohamad El-Kheir and Matthew Gemp provide full-mouth restoration, which can help to rejuvenate both your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Before developing your customized full-mouth restoration treatment plan, we will listen to your concerns and desires.

Is full-mouth reconstruction right for me?

If you’ve lost a few teeth or have several teeth with large fillings that need to be replaced, you may require full mouth reconstruction. You may also have teeth that are cracked, broken, or severely worn down as a result of bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). You may have dental conditions or a genetic disorder that necessitate extensive treatment, such as ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth). You may want to replace old crowns or simply improve your mouth for better comfort or health. In more severe cases, your deteriorated gums and teeth may have resulted in sunken cheeks or another visible facial deformity. The entire mouth may be reconstructed.

What is the procedure for full-mouth reconstruction?

Following a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, and jaw, one of our experienced dentists may recommend full-mouth reconstruction. Your individual treatment plan will be developed based on the condition of your teeth, gum tissue, temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, jaw muscles, and dental bite. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment and sedation options, as well as our own recommendations, to ensure that your treatment plan meets your needs and goals. We will go over what to expect during your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your procedures as soon as your treatment plan is finalized. In most cases, a full-mouth reconstruction will necessitate several visits to Evolution Dentistry. Our team will schedule your procedures with enough time in between to allow you to recover before moving on to the next step.

How long does it take to recover from a full-mouth reconstruction?

We will explain what to expect and how to care for your mouth after each treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program. Our dentists can prescribe antibiotics or pain medication, which must be filled and taken as directed prior to your procedure. You may experience some discomfort or swelling after certain procedures, such as implant placement, which may make eating difficult, so a liquid or soft food diet may be best for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is completed, you must maintain your oral health at home by flossing and brushing. Annual dental exams and twice-yearly cleanings at Evolution Dentistry are also beneficial. We can monitor the health of your restorations, natural teeth, gums, and jawbone during your exams.

Full-mouth reconstruction refers to a comprehensive and personalized dental treatment plan aimed at restoring the health, functionality, and aesthetics of the entire mouth

Full-mouth reconstruction may be necessary in several cases, including:

– Severe tooth loss or damage due to decay, trauma, or disease

– Misaligned bite affecting chewing and jaw function

– Jaw joint pain or dysfunction (temporomandibular joint disorder)
– Persistent dental problems that haven’t been successfully addressed with other treatments

Full-mouth reconstruction entails a combination of various dental procedures customized to the individual’s needs. These may include:

– Dental crowns or bridges to restore damaged or missing teeth

– Dental implants for replacing missing teeth and maintaining jawbone health

– Inlays, onlays, or dental fillings to repair decayed or damaged teeth

– Orthodontic treatments to correct misalignments or irregularities

– Periodontal therapy for gum disease treatment

– Root canal therapy to save infected teeth

– Teeth whitening or veneers to enhance smile aesthetics

The duration of full-mouth reconstruction depends on the severity of the case and the specific treatments required. It can range from several weeks to several months. Your dentist will provide a personalized treatment plan outlining the estimated timeline
During full-mouth reconstruction, local anesthesia is used to ensure a pain-free experience. Some procedures may cause temporary discomfort or sensitivity, but your dentist will provide appropriate measures to alleviate any pain or manage discomfort

The cost of full-mouth reconstruction varies based on the complexity of the case, required treatments, geographic location, and individual dental insurance coverage. It’s best to consult with your dentist to obtain an accurate estimate of the costs involved

As with any dental or medical procedure, there are some risks and potential complications associated with full-mouth reconstruction. These may include infection, bleeding, temporary sensitivity, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. However, with proper planning, skilled professionals, and post-treatment care, these risks can be minimized

The results of full-mouth reconstruction can last for many years or even a lifetime with proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups. Restored teeth may require occasional maintenance or replacement over time, but overall, the outcomes are intended to be long-lasting

To maintain optimal oral health after full-mouth reconstruction, it is crucial to follow a consistent oral hygiene routine, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash. Additionally, regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are essential to identify and address any potential issues promptly. Your dentist may also provide specific instructions tailored to your oral health needs
