Full-Mouth Reconstruction Reviews
Full-mouth reconstruction may be needed if you've lost some teeth or have many teeth with large fillings that need replacement. You may also have teeth with widespread decay or teeth that are cracked, broken, or badly worn down because of bruxism (persistent teeth grinding). You may have dental ailments or even a hereditary disorder, like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth), which all require extensive treatment. You might choose to replace older crowns, or just want to enhance your mouth for better comfort or health. In more complex cases, your degraded gums and teeth might have caused a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction may revive the whole face once the appropriate amount of teeth are in place.
What To Expect
Following a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and bite, Dr. Yoshikane may suggest full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment program will be created, depending on the condition of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular joints), facial muscles, and dental bite. Dr. Yoshikane will discuss your therapy, sedation options, and his own recommendations in your appointment to make sure your treatment strategy fits your wants and goals. As soon as your treatment program is made, he will discuss exactly what to expect in your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your appointments. In general, a full-mouth reconstruction will require a few visits to our dental practice. Dr. Yoshikane will schedule your treatments with breaks in between to let you recover until the next step is started.
After every treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, Dr. Yoshikane will describe what to expect and how to care for your mouth. He can write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine that needs to be filled prior to your procedure. You may experience some swelling or discomfort following certain processes, such as after dental implant placement, that will make it difficult to eat so a soft or liquid food diet may be right for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, you must keep your restored oral health with good flossing and brushing in your home.
