Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments in Swampscott MA

Full mouth reconstruction treatments are a combination of treatments that are tailored to a patient’s specific needs. They include a variety of restorative dental treatments and are often used for patients who have extensive damage to their teeth and gums. For example, if someone hasn’t been able to see a dentist in a long period of time they might have multiple damaged, missing or misshapen teeth. Full mouth reconstruction includes a tailored dental treatment plan to replace lost teeth, restore teeth, and in some cases extract teeth.

When Do You Need Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments?

Full mouth reconstruction treatments are recommended for patients who need work done on most or all of their teeth. For example, if you have the following problems with multiple teeth, you are likely a candidate for full mouth reconstruction. 

  • Damaged Teeth: Teeth that are missing, cracked, chipped, misaligned, or misshapen would all be considered damaged teeth. If you have a large number of teeth that are in this category, full mouth reconstruction treatment plans would be recommended. 
  • Discoloration: Similarly if you have a group of teeth that are all significantly stained or have chips/cracks, full mouth reconstruction might be recommended. If the issues are truly only cosmetic, you might be a better candidate for a smile makeover, which is similar to full mouth reconstruction but focuses mostly on cosmetic treatments like dental veneers. 
  • Gum Issues: If your gums are significantly receding, swollen, puffy, red, or bleed frequently (especially in multiple areas of the mouth) you may need reconstructive treatments and deep cleaning to treat and/or prevent gum disease that leads to infection.

What Treatment/Procedures Are Part Of Full Mouth Reconstruction?

As mentioned above, full mouth reconstruction treatments combine multiple dental procedures based on a patients’ unique needs. Some of the restorative dental treatments include: 

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a synthetic cap that protects the chewing surface of a tooth. They are often used as part of dental bridges, after root canal treatments, or to replace the damaged section of a chipped/cracked tooth. Dental crowns are bonded to the tooth after the tooth is slightly shaved down. CEREC dental crowns are designed and produced in-office and can be installed in a single appointment.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge involves placing either a false tooth or a group of false teeth around the healthy teeth. The healthy teeth are used as anchors that hold the false teeth in place. Dental bridges both restore the aesthetics of your smile while also preventing issues with bite alignment and teeth shifting. Similar to crowns, CEREC technology allows bridges to be made much quicker. 

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a false tooth that is surgically implanted and integrated into the jawbone. Because of how it is constructed it is a much truer replacement for a lost tooth. Dental implants last significantly longer and provide other benefits compared to bridges. Implants replace both the tooth crown and tooth root. They function closer to a healthy natural tooth and help support your natural facial structure. 

Implant-Supported Dentures

Full mouth reconstruction treatments are often about replacing multiple teeth. Implant-supported dentures replace an entire arch of teeth using the same technology as dental implants with one key difference. Where traditional implants are one to one, implant-supported dentures optimize the location of implant posts. For example All-On-4 dental implants replace all your upper or bottom teeth with just four implants. 

Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Covered By Insurance?

Insurance coverage varies from plan to plan. Full mouth reconstruction isn’t necessarily a covered procedure because it combines different procedures based on your needs. It is important to ask your insurance provider as well as your dentist about how coverage will work for your treatment plan. For example, you coverage might help with some restorative treatments like the ones mentioned above but might not provide coverage for any cosmetic treatments like dental veneers or teeth whitening. The best thing to do is to talk with your dental team and get information on what treatments they provide and ask them about their experience with different insurers.
