Full-mouth reconstruction, full-mouth rehabilitation, and full-mouth restoration are often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or restoring all the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws simultaneously.
Dr. Watson has years of experience working with the materials and procedures related to full-mouth reconstruction. He will develop a plan that addresses all your needs and leave you with a perfect smile, ideal bite, and optimal function.
You may be a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction if:
- Your teeth have been lost due to decay or trauma
- Your teeth have been injured or fractured
- Your teeth have become severely worn because of long-term acid erosion (from foods, beverages, or acid reflux) or severe grinding
- You have ongoing jaw, muscle, or headache pain related to your bite
The extent of your reconstruction will depend on the condition of your teeth. Dr. Watson may recommend crowns, bridges, veneers, or implants to restore your smile to its best possible condition. He will also address the state of your gum tissue, because the health of your gums may have an impact on the type of restorations you receive. It is common for teeth not to be in a safe position, so orthodontics may have to be considered as well.
Your treatment plan will entail a step-by-step process and will detail all facets of your reconstruction. Often, collaboration with Dr. Watson’s select team of specialists* will be involved, to finish a state-of-the-art design and complete your reconstruction. The duration of your treatment will depend on the extent of work needed, but in the end it will all be worth it. Your teeth, mouth, and smile will be healthy and beautiful for the rest of your life.
