Full Mouth Reconstruction – Brand New Smile!
If you live in the Denver or Edgewater area, you may be curious as to whether full-mouth reconstruction is a process suitable to your needs. Perhaps you aren’t even certain what it is, or how long the process takes. Essentially, full-mouth reconstruction is an option for those with a variety of issues such as bone loss, many extractions due to severe decay, weak or uncomfortable bite, and many more. Our oral surgeons will be happy to educate you regarding this popular dental procedure that can literally transform the appearance of your teeth, along with functionality.
At Sloan’s Lake Dental, one of our absolute favorite dental procedures is the full-mouth restoration. This procedure creates drastic, incredible results in typically three visits.
Why would a patient need a full-mouth reconstruction?
Full-mouth reconstruction typically is performed due to:
- Collapsed bite due to years of grinding teeth away.
- Loss of bone due to removed teeth either from decay, genetics, or poor dental hygiene.
- Genetically missing teeth limiting the forces that your teeth can handle.
- And various other reasons.
Whatever your reason, we are here to help. We know we can help you achieve the bite, functionality, and esthetics you have been hoping for.
What happens during a full-mouth reconstruction?
During a full-mouth reconstruction, we prepare all of your teeth. After consulting with Dr. Pollack and putting together a treatment plan that the patient and Dr. Pollack understand perfectly, typically a Friday is blocked for an all day appointment for the patient to have undivided time with Dr. Pollack.
During the appointment:
- The patient is made very comfortable and is encouraged to bring music or a book on tape to ensure they are comfortable, relaxed, and able to enjoy their appointment.
- All teeth are prepared for the reconstruction with build-up fillings, impressions, and temporaries made.
- The patient leaves the office with beautiful temporaries that look like natural teeth.
- The patient goes to our lab for a custom shade to ensure the new teeth are the shade the patient wants.
- After the new teeth are made, the patient comes back for the cementation of all teeth.
