Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive dental treatment plan that involves the restoration or replacement of all teeth in the upper and lower jaws using dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth.
The process of a dental implant full mouth reconstruction begins with a thorough examination of the patient's teeth, gums, and jaw structure. This includes x-rays, dental impressions, and other diagnostic tests to determine the extent of the damage and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
The specific treatments involved in a dental implant full mouth reconstruction can vary depending on the individual patient's needs, but typically include a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures.
Some common treatments may include:
- Extraction of damaged or decayed teeth
- Placement of dental implants into the jawbone
- Placement of abutments on the implants to support replacement teeth
- Placement of crowns or bridges on the abutments to replace missing teeth
- Gum grafting or bone grafting procedures to improve the stability and aesthetics of the dental implants
The overall goal of full mouth reconstruction is to improve the function and aesthetics of the patient’s teeth and mouth, as well as promote better oral health and quality of life. The process can take several months to complete and typically requires multiple appointments with a team of dental specialists. It is important to note that dental implant full mouth reconstruction may not be suitable for all patients and requires a thorough evaluation by a dental professional.
