How Does a Full Mouth Reconstruction Work?
The phrase “full mouth reconstruction” is actually an umbrella term used for any kind of treatment plan that completely restores a patient’s waning smile. For instance, your full mouth restoration may include placement of dental implants and tooth crowns. Another person’s full mouth reconstruction may require reconstructive jaw surgery, bone grafts and tooth extractions.
How do specialists decide which type of treatment will help you get to your ultimate goal? They rely on a number of techniques and equipment. As an example, at your initial consultation, you can expect to undergo several computerized diagnostic tests. The resulting images will help your oral surgeon gauge how to proceed. At the same time, your oral surgeon will want to examine your teeth and gums, using experience as a guide to artfully and thoughtfully create a personalized roadmap for your situation.
How Long Does It Take to Get a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Every patient has unique issues and concerns. Therefore, every full mouth reconstruction follows a one-of-a-kind route.
