Full Mouth Restoration Explained!

Full Mouth Restoration Explained!

August 10, 2018

If you have multiple dental issues that need attention before you can return to oral health, consider getting a full mouth restoration. This treatment combines two or more procedures to provide a comprehensive full mouth reconstruction. It is easy to think of a full mouth restoration the same way as a smile makeover, and some procedures may overlap with the two treatments, but the two have very different goals. While a smile makeover is purely cosmetic, intended for patients with healthy teeth and gums who simply want to enhance the appearance of their smile, a full mouth restoration improves the health and function of the teeth in patients who have damaged, decayed, or missing teeth.

Personalized Treatment

Every patient has their own unique needs and goals when they consider undergoing a full mouth restoration. Whether they need to address extensive decay, replace missing teeth, or treat periodontal disease, our team can create a treatment plan specifically designed to meet these needs. For this reason, no two full mouth restorations are the same.

Common Procedures in Full Mouth Restoration

Most procedures utilized in full mouth restorations are restorative in nature. Some of the most common include:

  • Composite fillings: repair mildly damaged teeth and small cavities
  • Dental crowns: repair moderate to severe decay or reinforce the natural tooth structure in weakened teeth
  • Root canal therapy: treats severe tooth decay that has reached the pulp of a tooth
  • Extractions: removes a tooth that is too damaged to be repaired that could potentially affect the health of the remaining teeth and gums
  • Dental implants: replace a missing tooth or teeth; implants are more stable than other tooth replacement options
  • Dental bridge: replace a row of teeth
  • Dentures: a removable replacement for missing teeth; can replace most or all of the teeth and can be supported by dental implants for additional stability
  • Periodontal therapy: treats gum disease
