Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for Me?
A full mouth reconstruction is meant to restore or improve the health, function, and appearance of all the teeth in your mouth. In other words, it’s used to address more extensive dental damage and correct multiple problems at once. As such, you might be a candidate if your smile has suffered a severe injury or if there’s decay present in multiple parts of your mouth.
Like any other type of restorative dentistry, the longevity of a full mouth reconstruction depends largely on the kind of care you give it afterward. In other words, a good reconstruction candidate must be able to commit to an excellent oral healthcare routine to help their new smile last as long as possible.
The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process
We can start planning your full mouth reconstruction during an initial consultation. Our team will carefully examine your teeth and take several X-rays to identify any oral health conditions that will need to be addressed. Then we’ll give you a list of procedures that we can use to rebuild your mouth.
Each reconstruction plan is different. Sometimes you might need bridges or dental implants to replace missing teeth, while in other cases you may only require fillings and crowns to restore and protect the teeth you still have. Sometimes cosmetic procedures such as veneers might be suggested as well.
Understanding the Cost of a Full Mouth Reconstruction
Since full mouth reconstruction is a highly customizable procedure, the cost is likely to significantly vary for every patient. After all, no two treatments will have the exact same price; repairing a tooth with a filling has a very different cost compared to extracting the tooth and replacing it with a dental implant.
When we’re discussing the treatments that will be part of the reconstruction process, we’ll explain the associated cost for each step of the procedure. We want you to feel fully informed before you have to make any commitments.
Your payment options will be discussed as well. Dental insurance will normally help cover many of the restorative treatments that are typically performed as part of the full mouth reconstruction process. However, not all insurance plans are precisely alike, and what’s covered under one isn’t necessarily included under another. We’ll go over your coverage with you so that you understand what your benefits are and how much you can expect to pay out of pocket.
