WHAT IS FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
In general, any dental treatment that affects all teeth in the mouth is called full mouth reconstruction or full mouth rehabilitation. A full-mouth reconstruction is often necessary for patients who are in severe pain or have lost a lot of functionality in their mouths because of damaged, worn, or missing teeth.
The treatments can include onlays, crowns, bridges, veneers, dental implants, and/or dentures that will essentially provide not only a "smile makeover", but improved chewing efficiency for the patient. Some treatment options for oral cancer may require the patient to undergo a unique type of full mouth reconstruction that not only involves the replacement of missing teeth but potentially restoration of missing structures of the oral cavity. In some patients, other specialties will orthodontics may also be employed to facilitate the best possible outcome.
This is different from a cosmetic smile makeover because it isn’t just about a beautiful smile (though that is one of the results), it’s about a serious need to restore your mouth to a healthier condition.
