After you complete your treatment plan, you can expect to enjoy a number of benefits, including improved oral health and function, heightened confidence, and a better overall quality of life. An enhanced ability to eat a wide range of foods may also support your systemic health.
The first step in the full mouth reconstruction process is a consultation with our team. We will examine your mouth, ask you some questions, and start to formulate your personalized treatment plan. Once the plan is finalized, we can get started on restoring your smile.
Your full mouth reconstruction might include the following:
From beginning to end, the entire process may take anywhere from a couple of weeks to several months or longer.
The cost of full mouth reconstruction varies from patient to patient. It depends on which procedures you undergo, as well as the extent of those procedures. During your consultation, we will be able to share some specific numbers with you so there will never be any unpleasant surprises when you have to pay for your treatments. We can also help you find ways to make your care more affordable. For example, we accept a number of different insurance plans. We also work with third-party financing companies and have an in-house savings plan.
Full mouth reconstruction may seem pricey at first, but it is an excellent value and a worthwhile investment!
Do you plan to get a full mouth reconstruction? That’s smart – this treatment can practically rebuild your smile from the ground up! Still, you may have some lingering questions about the service. It’s only natural – you want to confirm that you’ll get good results. Luckily, we at South Ridge Dental can help: below are the answers to several oft-asked questions about full mouth reconstructions. By reading them, you’ll know what to expect from our care. If necessary, though, please call us for further details.
When getting a full mouth reconstruction, there are three crucial phases. These are the consultation visit, the drafting of the treatment plan, and the treatment itself.
For the consultation, you’ll meet with our office’s dentists. Doing so ensures they know your specific smile goals. From there, they can determine if you’re a good reconstruction candidate. (Most patients are, as a full mouth reconstruction counts as restorative work.)
Following the consult, our team will draft a custom treatment plan. Said plan will include the services you need, the time to complete them, and their estimated cost. So, keep an “inspiration picture” handy. It’d give us an idea of how you want your dream smile to look.
Once the plan is made, you’ll undergo treatment. The timeframe for this process will vary. Often, a dentist will begin the necessary restorative care before moving to cosmetic work.
To be clear, a full mouth reconstruction is a relatively smooth treatment. Dentists take every measure to make it comfortable and stress-free.
You see, the dental team will numb your mouth for complex treatment. That means you won’t feel any pain from implant or crown procedures. At most, you might sense some slight pressure as the dentist works on your mouth.
Admittedly, you may feel some soreness after your procedures. This effect is minimal, though, and should fade within a few days of your treatment. Plus, we’ll provide you with extensive aftercare instructions. (These might include sticking to a soft food diet, avoiding hot beverages, and prioritizing rest.)
Generally, no – most people won’t be able to tell you’ve had a full mouth reconstruction. Thanks to dental innovations and advanced technology, your results will look and feel very lifelike.
In the first place, how your final smile looks will depend on your needs and goals. If you only get a few teeth restored or brightened, the change won’t draw too much attention. Meanwhile, placing veneers all over your smile will have more dramatic effects. As such, you should talk to our office about how subtle or obvious you want your results to be.
After a full mouth reconstruction, your new smile will need proper care. (It won’t last long otherwise.) That being the case, implement the following tips:
