Can I Get a Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
You may require full-mouth reconstruction if you've lost a few teeth or have many teeth with large fillings that are ready for replacement. You could also have teeth with significant decay or teeth that are cracked, broken, or severely worn down because of bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). You may have dental conditions or even a genetic disorder, like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (translucent or discolored teeth), which require extensive treatment. You may want to replace older crowns or just want to enhance your mouth for better comfort or health. In more advanced cases, your degraded gums and teeth might have caused a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction may rejuvenate the entire face once the correct number of teeth are in your mouth.
What Should I Expect from Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
After an examination of your teeth, gums, and jawbone, we may suggest full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment plan will be made based on the state of your own teeth, gum tissue, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), jaw muscles, and dental bite. We will discuss your treatment and sedation alternatives and our recommendations during your consultation to ensure your treatment strategy fits your desires and goals. Once your treatment program is made, we will go over what to expect from your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your visits. Generally speaking, a full-mouth reconstruction will require several visits to NowDental of Suffolk. We will plan your treatments with breaks in between to allow your mouth to heal before the next step is taken.
What is the Recovery from Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
After every procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan, we will let you know what to expect and how to look after your mouth. Depending on the procedure, we may write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine that should be filled before your appointment and taken as directed. You may have some swelling or discomfort following certain procedures, such as implant placement, that may make it hard to eat so a soft or liquid food diet could be best for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is finished, you must maintain your oral health with proper flossing and brushing in your home. Yearly dental exams and biannual cleanings at NowDental of Suffolk will also be important. Throughout your examinations, we will track the health of your own restorations, natural teeth, gums, and jawbone.
Will My Insurance Pay for My Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
During your initial consultation, we will create a treatment plan based on your objectives, needs, and budget. We are happy to give you various options to make certain your full-mouth reconstruction is affordable yet still meets your needs. NowDental of Suffolk accepts several payments, such as low-interest medical financing. If you have dental insurance, we will contact your provider to verify your policy benefits and determine your personal costs.
