Now you can turn back the clock to new, bright teeth.  Full mouth reconstruction involves restoring the teeth, bite and muscles to a natural looking, youthful feeling condition, and achieving the cosmetic improvements you have always wanted.  

Full mouth reconstruction refers to the use of one or more restorative dental treatments to improve the function, strength, health, and stability of your gums and teeth.  So if your smile has multiple problems, a full mouth reconstruction can help restore your teeth to their natural glow. This treatment involves restoring all of the teeth in your mouth with the main focus being the improvement of the function of your teeth.  

Any cosmetic benefits resulting from a full mouth reconstruction remain secondary, though correcting dental imperfections and restoring the health of the gums and teeth often provide an instant improvement to the aesthetics of your smile.

Who is a candidate for a full mouth restoration?

If you are experiencing difficulty chewing or speaking, pain when biting down, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, missing teeth, tooth decay, or other dental issues that are not based solely on improving the aesthetics of your smile, then a full mouth reconstruction may be just for you.  During this procedure, Dr. Sara, our dentist in North Scottsdale, will restore all of your teeth in the upper and lower jaw, and address any issues that may have contributed to the demise of the function and health of your teeth.

Since health and function of your teeth are the primary focus of full mouth reconstruction, virtually everyone is a candidate for this procedure.  Dental issues that can be improved and corrected during full mouth reconstruction, include:

  • Missing teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • Teeth with severe tooth erosion
  • Advanced periodontitis
  • Worn teeth, uneven teeth
  • Misalignment
  • TMJ issues, including pain and teeth grinding

This comprehensive restorative procedure can reverse years of aging and neglect.  It can also provide you with the extreme Hollywood smile that you have always dreamed of having!

What is the first step?

Before your full mouth reconstruction can begin, Dr. Sara will complete a comprehensive dental examination, which includes x-rays and impressions of your upper and lower teeth, to determine the best treatments for your full mouth reconstruction.  She will also look for wear, decay, caries, cracks, receding gums, bone loss, loose teeth, missing teeth, TMJ problems, and a multitude of other dental issues during this thorough dental examination.

Every patient is different, which means the only way to determine what treatments will be included in your full mouth reconstruction is to schedule an examination with Dr. Sara. Some of the treatments that may be included in your full mouth reconstruction are:

  • A professional dental cleaning.
  • Dental implants.
  • Crown lengthening.
  • Surgery to reposition the jaw.
  • Gum contouring
