What exactly is a full mouth reconstruction?

When someone is missing many teeth or has many damaged teeth that are in need of attention, this situation is often referred to as a full mouth reconstruction. The patient will need to come in for an initial appointment so that the dentist can perform a thorough examination of their mouth. This includes carefully looking at both the teeth and the gums as well as performing an oral cancer check. Upon completion, the dentist will write up a dental treatment plan. The dentist will carefully discuss all of the treatment options with the patient so that they both can come up with the best options for that particular patient.

Possible treatments include dentures, bridges, veneers, crowns and implants.

Four examination points

The following are the four examination points that a dental patient can expect to occur when going to the dentist for the potential reconstruction of the entire mouth.

1. The teeth. The dentist will perform a physical examination of the teeth, making careful notes for each one.

2. The gums. The dentist will check the gums for deep pockets, periodontal disease, bone density in in order to determine whether or not the gums will need to be built up as part of the reconstruction.

3. The joints, muscles, and bite. The dentist will carefully evaluate the temporomandibular joints as well as the jaw muscles in order to determine if the overall bite is stable.

4. Appearance. The dentist will determine the best tooth shape and size for the patient in order to offer them the best looking appearance, aka smile.
