Full-Mouth Reconstruction

What is full-mouth reconstruction?

As the name implies, full-mouth reconstruction is a procedure that repairs or replaces all of the teeth in your mouth to improve their structure, health, function, and overall appearance. 

The treatment can dramatically improve the look and health of your smile and even the contours of your face. It helps you feel more confident about showing off your smile.

Is full-mouth reconstruction right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction at San Ramon Dental Excellence, Dr. Patel and Dr. Hakim evaluate your teeth and gums. 

He takes dental X-rays if needed and discusses your oral health history and preferences. He then personalizes a reconstruction plan that matches your desired results.

You might choose full-mouth reconstruction if you have damaged or missing permanent teeth due to gum disease, trauma, aging, or tooth decay. Your teeth could be chipped, cracked, badly worn down, or broken. 

Dr. Patel and Dr. Hakim repair damaged teeth in many cases, but other times he recommends extraction and filling in the gaps with artificial teeth.

Which full-mouth reconstruction procedures are available?

Your full-mouth reconstruction plan may include a variety of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures, such as:

  • Dental extraction: procedures to remove damaged teeth
  • Dental crowns: caps that fit over the entire surface of a tooth
  • Dental bridges: artificial teeth that fill in gaps left by missing teeth
  • Dental veneers: tooth-colored shells that bond to the front of teeth
  • Dental implants: metal tooth roots that anchor artificial teeth
  • Dentures: removable or fixed artificial teeth
  • Orthodontics: procedures that straighten crooked teeth
  • Laser gum recontouring: procedures to improve your gum line

Dr. Patel and Dr. Hakim may recommend just one cosmetic procedure or multiple restorative treatments to perfect the look of your smile.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Before full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Patel and Dr. Hakim numb the treatment area to ensure you are comfortable. 

He offers sedation dentistry to help you relax or even fall asleep during the procedure. He could make incisions to remove teeth, place dental implants, or complete other types of dental surgery.

Dr. Patel and Dr. Hakim might digitally scan your teeth and mouth, allowing a dental lab to create custom-fitted veneers, crowns, bridges, or dentures that make your smile aesthetically pleasing.

Full-mouth reconstruction often includes more than one appointment, with periods of healing in between, to help you achieve the most beautiful smile and exceptional oral health.
