What are the Steps of a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Healthy teeth

When you have suffered from serious gum disease or facial trauma, you will need extensive dental reconstructive surgeries to fully restore the function and aesthetics of your smile. A full mouth reconstruction encapsulates all of the necessary procedures and dental work you need done into one comprehensive treatment plan. 

Being in need of major dental work can take a real toll on your physical and mental health, as well as your confidence. The first step to restoring your natural bite, ability to enjoy food, and a smile worth showing off is getting in contact with an oral surgeon you can trust. Union City Oral Surgery Group has serviced our community for many years now with the newest technology and expert techniques. For a look at how we can help you throughout the full mouth reconstruction process, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to walk you through the basics.

3 Steps to a Full Mouth Reconstruction

After your initial consultation, your oral surgeon will take the three following steps to complete your full mouth reconstruction:

Examination and Impressions

In order to properly assess the current state of your oral health and decipher what procedures are necessary for your treatment, your oral surgeon will conduct a full examination. This includes a briefing of your oral history and a look at the current condition of your teeth and gums, your bite alignment, and the physical appearance of your mouth. 

Impressions will be taken of your current bite and teeth in order to have a physical record of your current condition. X-rays and intraoral pictures of the oral cavity may also be taken for a more detailed look at any hidden problems. 

Treatment Plan

Using the collected information from the visual examination and physical records, your oral health professional will devise a plan of action to treat your mouth. This can include a variety of options, depending on the amount of work needed and your desired outcomes. Potential treatments can include:  

This plan will be thoroughly reviewed and discussed with the patient to relieve any associated questions or stress. This will also come with an estimated cost and discussion of your budget. 

Treatment and Recovery

Once the treatment plan has been approved, your oral surgeon will begin the process of your full mouth reconstruction. The underlying factor, such as gum disease, will be treated first so your mouth has a healthy structure to support any dental implants. For example, you may need a series of professional cleanings or even osseous surgery before receiving other work in order to ensure your mouth is free of any built-up tartar. 

The full course of treatment will likely be spread out over the course of a couple of months to give your mouth the time necessary to recover between procedures. This can also make the reconstruction easier to take care of financially.
