Full Mouth Reconstruction Q&A

What is full mouth reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is the process of completely rebuilding your smile or replacing your teeth in order to restore the function and beauty of your smile. 

To perform a full mouth reconstruction, Berkshire Dental can employ many restorative dental treatments, including the placement of:

  • Partial and complete dentures
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Veneers
  • Dental implants

Berkshire Dental can also perform crown lengthening, root canals, and periodontal treatment to improve the health of your smile.

Is full mouth reconstruction right for me?

Berkshire Dental may recommend a full mouth reconstruction if you suffer from issues like:

  • Multiple missing teeth
  • Multiple teeth with failing large fillings
  • Multiple teeth with advanced decay
  • Several broken or cracked teeth
  • Badly worn teeth from grinding

If you have a bad bite that has led to headaches, jaw pain, or muscle pain, you may benefit from full mouth construction. Full mouth reconstruction can also help if you’ve lost teeth due to oral cancer. 

If you suffer from less severe pain, or your concerns are primarily aesthetic, a smile makeover might be a better fit for you.

What happens during a full mouth reconstruction consultation?

When you come to Berkshire Dental for a full mouth reconstruction consultation, the practice begins by examining several aspects of your smile, including your:

Teeth 

The practice counts your cavities and assesses their severity. Your team then examines the extent of wear and tear, cracks, and other factors like the condition of any root canals. They also take note of any noticeably short or long teeth.

Gums

Next, your team examines your gums, paying particular attention to the health of your deep pockets and checking for periodontal disease and bone density irregularities. If you want the practice to place artificial teeth in your mouth, particularly with dental implants, you need a healthy gum and bone structure.

Jaw and joints

Berkshire Dental also assesses the strength and health of your jaw muscles, temporomandibular joints, and your bite. 

Aesthetics

Finally, your team considers the aesthetic elements of your smile, such as your gum color and appearance, your lip shape and size, your mouth shape and size, profile, and natural tooth color.

After this examination, your team takes all of the gathered information, including 3D panel digital images of your mouth, and designs an action plan.

If trauma or disease has ravaged your smile, you don’t have to accept a diminished life. Instead, reach out to Berkshire Dental for a full mouth reconstruction consultation. To schedule an appointment, call the office or book online today.
