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.
A full mouth reconstruction may be required when you’ve many broken, worn or missing teeth. This will often require every tooth to be restored with a combination of veneers, crowns, inlays, onlays, dental implants and dental bridgework.
Not all dental practices have the experience and expertise to bring together the various advanced dental disciplines required to create full mouth reconstructions. At our practice we’ll make sure the outcome not only looks great but ensure your new teeth function correctly, are healthy and will last for many years to come.
What does full mouth reconstruction involve?
The key to a successful full mouth reconstruction is thorough planning, something we guarantee for all our patients.
1. Examination :
A thorough examination of the teeth, gums, supporting bone, muscles and jaw joint/ TMJ is essential. The latest technology helps us identify and explain what dentistry is required for your full mouth reconstruction and why and we’ll discuss this with you throughout the process.
2. Computer Aided Smile Design :
It’s vital your full mouth reconstruction not only functions perfectly but looks great. Our extensive experience in cosmetic dentistry allows us to perfectly combine form and function. The latest in computer aided smile design technology allows us to discuss and show you the aesthetic outcome before we start.
3. 3D Preview :
Detailed impressions and bite records allow us to transform the imaging picture into a 3D model. Not just on the computer but a model you can pick up and examine. You can check the aesthetics from every angle, and we can check the function. This is an essential step in the planning of predictable full mouth reconstructions.
4. Temporaries :
After teeth are prepared for your full mouth reconstruction temporaries are placed that replicate the 3D model exactly. You can trial the proposed full mouth reconstruction in your own mouth, before anything is finalised. These temporaries can be fine tuned to your precise aesthetic and functional requirements and any changes can be duplicated in the finished restorations.
5. Fitting your full mouth reconstruction :
exactly as we’ve planned it with you. We’ll duplicate the smile design and function (from the temporaries and 3D model) in the final restorations and adds the final colour, surface anatomy and texture to bring your new full mouth reconstruction to life.
