Full Mouth Reconstruction
From minor issues to severe disfigurements, full mouth reconstruction can help restore a patient’s health, esthetics and function of their mouth. The team of oral surgeons and prosthodontists at Rutgers Health University Dental Associates provide full mouth reconstruction and rehabilitation services using the most advanced technology.
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Patients may require full mouth reconstruction for a variety of reasons. More commonly, full mouth reconstruction is used to help patients who have multiple teeth that are missing, decayed, broken or worn down. This may be due to any of the following:
- Missing teeth due to periodontal disease
- Congenitally missing or affected teeth in congenital conditions, such as Ectodermal Dysplasia and Dentinogenisis Imperfecta
- Teeth fracture as a result of a fall or accident
- Long-term acid erosion
- Decay from systemic diseases or from the side effects of medication
- Teeth worn down by bruxism, or tooth grinding
- Oral cancer
Oral surgery is frequently needed in conjunction with full mouth reconstruction to remove the severely decayed teeth, loose teeth and tumors, correct the maxillomandibular relationship and Tempo-mandibular joint dysfunction. Surgery can also help restoring missing teeth with placement of dental implants. Full mouth reconstruction increases the person’s ability to chew, improves their quality of life and change their appearance. Not sure if full mouth reconstruction is right for you? Our dentists can do a thorough evaluation, diagnose your condition and develop a treatment plan personalized to your needs.
What to Expect During Full Mouth Reconstruction
The reconstructive process looks different for everyone. Over the course of treatment, a patient may receive dental ceramic onlays, crowns or veneers to strengthen and change the look of their teeth, or they may need implant crowns or implant-supported dentures to replace the missing teeth. Depending on what’s needed, the entire process is usually spread out over several appointments and may take a year or longer to complete.
