What Can I Expect From a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is a series of procedures for repairing your teeth and gums, resulting in a healthy and aesthetically pleasing smile. Full mouth reconstruction is necessary when your teeth and gums prevent you from enjoying life, due to pain, decay, or compromised use. If you’re suffering from any number of oral health issues that cause you to chew your food gingerly, wince in pain, or cover your mouth when you smile, you may be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction. 

Reasons for full mouth reconstruction

Some patients need a full mouth reconstruction after suffering a trauma that degrades their teeth and their oral health, often causing pain in the jaw and even chronic headaches. 

Others opt for reconstruction after gum disease, infections, or missing teeth take a toll on their ability to chew properly. Patients who grind their teeth, experience acid reflux, take certain medications, or have had certain medical conditions may also benefit from the reconstructive process.

The process of full mouth reconstruction

The process of restoring your mouth to optimal health and appearance begins with a consultation with Dr. Mahallati here at Center for Implant & Esthetic Dentistry. After a comprehensive exam, Dr. Mahallati determines how to move forward, and what procedures you need.

The path to your pain-free, functional smile may include:

A successful mouth reconstruction typically includes both the upper and lower jaws. Because the process addresses a deeper set of issues than a mostly cosmetic “smile makeover,” the overall procedure is much more involved. For example, if your bone structure is weak and unsupportive, you may require some additional procedures to ensure the strength of your jaw. A strong jawbone is necessary to effectively support any implants or other dental work.  

Your full mouth reconstruction is a permanent solution to your oral health and dental deficiencies, and it typically takes a series of procedures for the best results. Depending on what’s involved in achieving your reconstructive goals, it’s not unreasonable to anticipate the entire process to take a few months or up to a year. Dr. Mahallati sets up a unique course of treatment to meet your needs.

The results are life-changing

Restorative full mouth reconstruction provides you with all the components necessary for a beautiful smile, but there are more benefits that go beyond appearance. You’ll be amazed by how much more enjoyable it is to eat your favorite foods. You won’t have to worry about the shame and discomfort of decaying or missing teeth. And if chronic headaches or jaw pain were an issue, they’ll be gone, too.

Overall, your self-confidence and quality of life improve exponentially when you undergo a full mouth reconstruction.

If you’re tired of dealing with serious decay, tooth pain, or the effects of an accident, there’s no reason to wait any longer. Contact our office in Beverly Hills, California to set up a consultation with Dr. Mahallati.
