Full-Mouth Reconstruction Overview
A full-mouth reconstruction can improve the appearance, function, and health of your teeth, gums, and jaw for easier biting, speaking, and a better-looking smile. Full-mouth reconstruction at Chestnut Hill Dental can include (but is not limited to) onlays, inlays, crowns, bridges, veneers, implants, and dentures. Some reconstruction procedures may also call for a bone or gum graft.

The Chestnut Hill Dental team will listen to your questions and work to understand your aesthetic goals before creating your personalized full-mouth restoration treatment plan.

Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Reconstruction of your full-mouth might be needed if you have lost a few teeth or have several teeth with big fillings that are ready for replacement. You could also have teeth with significant decay or teeth that are broken, cracked, or severely worn down due to bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). You might have dental conditions or a genetic disorder such as ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (very small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (translucent or discolored teeth), which require extensive restoration. You may want to replace old dental crowns, or just want to improve your mouth for better health or comfort. In more advanced cases, your degraded teeth and gums may have created sunken cheeks or another visible facial deformity. A full-mouth reconstruction can rejuvenate the entire face when the correct quantity of teeth are in your mouth.
What To Expect with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and jawbone, our team may recommend full-mouth reconstruction. Your unique treatment plan will be made based on the state of your teeth, gum tissue, temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, jaw muscles, and bite. A member of our team will discuss your treatment options and sedation choices, as well as any personal recommendations during your consultation to ensure your treatment plan meets all of your needs and goals. Once your treatment plan is created, we will go over what to expect during your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your visits. Generally speaking, a full-mouth reconstruction will take several visits to Chestnut Hill Dental. Our support staff will be sure to plan your procedures with time in between to allow your mouth to heal before the next step is taken.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
After each procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan, one of our knowledgeable team members will explain what to expect and how to take care of your mouth post-procedure. We may prescribe antibiotics or pain medication that should be filled before your treatments and then taken as directed during recovery. You might have some discomfort or swelling after certain procedures (like implant placement) that may make it tough to chew, so a liquid or soft food diet might be recommend to you. Once your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, you should maintain ideal oral health with proper brushing and flossing at home. Annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings at Chestnut Hill Dental are also important. During your exams, we can monitor the health of your restorations, natural teeth, gums, and jawbone.

At your consultation, one of our experienced dentists will produce your treatment plan based on your goals, needs, and budget. We will ensure you understand your treatment options to help make sure your full-mouth reconstruction is affordable. Chestnut Hill Dental accepts several payment methods, including medical financing. When you have dental insurance, we will contact your provider to verify your policy benefits and determine your out-of-pocket costs.
