Some patients only have one or a few teeth that need to be replaced or repaired. In other cases, though, the damage can be so extensive that the entire smile is affected. Do you have so many dental issues that you’re not sure which one to address first? Here at Pioneer Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we can turn around even the direst oral health situations so that you can enjoy a beautiful, functional smile once more. Call our office today to learn more about the reconstruction process and how it works.
A full mouth reconstruction is performed when all or most of the teeth in the mouth need to be repaired or replaced to improve function, oral health, and appearance. You’re generally considered a good candidate if you have a severe dental issue that requires extensive treatment, such as an injury that has affected the majority of your teeth or decay that’s occurring in multiple areas. No matter what kind of situation your smile is in, it’s still possible to fix it with the right combination of treatments. Once the reconstruction is complete, not only will your smile be whole again, but your mental and emotional well-being will improve as well thanks to the knowledge that you can show off your teeth with confidence.
While the full mouth reconstruction process is slightly different for every patient, the first step is the same for everyone: scheduling a consultation with our team at Pioneer Periodontics & Implant Dentistry. We’ll examine each of your teeth thoroughly, take X-rays so that we can get a grasp on any hidden dental problems, and identify oral health issues such as gum disease that will need to be addressed. We can then put together a treatment plan based on your needs.
The specifics of the plan will vary based on the patient. For example, if you have multiple teeth that are beyond salvaging, we may recommend extracting them and replacing them with dental implants. Some cosmetic procedures, such as gum grafting, may be performed as well to help your smile look natural after treatment is complete. The timeline of the process will depend on what procedures are involved. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns; we want you to have a full grasp of what’s going to happen before the treatment begins.
Obviously, a customizable treatment like full mouth reconstruction is not going to have a price set in stone. When we’re explaining the treatments that will be performed as part of the procedure, we’ll go into detail about the costs involved as well as your available payment options. We aim to be as transparent as possible about pricing during your initial consultation so that you won’t be caught off guard later. If you have dental insurance, we can review your coverage with you and explain how it can help you pay for your treatment.
