What Is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?

Patients who wish to make several improvements to their smile or to the appearance of their mouth may be candidates for full-mouth reconstruction and oral surgery. These patients may have teeth that have been damaged due to decay, weakened by poor oral hygiene habits, or missing due to trauma to the face. Damaged or missing teeth not only impact the appearance of your smile, they can also affect your ability to chew or speak properly, the shape of your face, and the appearance of the surrounding teeth.Patients who need to have several procedures completed to achieve the results they want may be candidates for full-mouth reconstruction. This type of restoration can include oral surgery, such as dental implants or dental bridges, or it can include orthodontics, teeth whitening, dental crowns, porcelain veneers, or tooth bonding. Dr. Brock Lynn of Lynn Dental Care in Dallas, TX, knows that hearing this news can be overwhelming. If you’ve been told that you need a full-mouth reconstruction or oral surgery, here are some questions that may be on your mind.

What Is the Process for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?

During your first visit, Dr. Lynn will examine your mouth and discuss your optimal results. He will perform an oral exam, discuss your dental history, and take x-rays. Once he knows what results you’d like to achieve and has a good understanding of your current dental state, Dr. Lynn can recommend the best and least invasive options to restore your smile. Depending on the condition of your teeth, this may or may not include oral surgery.

How Long Will Full-Mouth Reconstruction Take?

Dr. Lynn approaches each patient individually so there’s no way to know how long your treatment plan will take. For some, full results can be achieved in several weeks, for others, especially if they need extensive oral surgery, it takes several months or longer. The important thing to note is that each treatment procedure will be performed by a skilled and artistic dentist whose goal is to give you the results you want and deserve.

Will People Know I’ve Had Oral Surgery?

Your friends and family will notice that your smile looks better, but acquaintances and people that you’re meeting for the first time will be unable to tell that your teeth or your smile have been altered. Dr. Lynn will make sure that your smile looks natural and that your teeth function exactly like natural teeth after your full-mouth reconstruction and oral surgery.
