Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
You may require full-mouth reconstruction if you've lost a few teeth or have several teeth with big fillings that need replacement. You might also have teeth with widespread decay or that are broken, cracked, or badly worn down because of bruxism (persistent teeth grinding). You may have dental conditions or a hereditary disorder, like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), abnormally small teeth, or stained teeth, which require extensive restoration. You might want to replace older crowns, or just want to enhance your mouth for better comfort and health.
After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and jaw, Dr. Tozzi may recommend full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment program will be made, depending on the state of your teeth, gum tissue, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, jaw muscles, and dental bite. Dr. Tozzi will go over your treatment and sedation options and her own recommendations during your consultation to make sure your treatment strategy fits your wants and goals. As soon as your treatment program is made, she will go over exactly what to expect during your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your procedures. Generally, a full-mouth reconstruction will take several dental visits to achieve your goals. Dr. Tozzi will plan your procedures accordingly to allow for breaks in between appointments to enable optimal healing before the next procedure is scheduled. This type of schedule will continue until all of your dental restorations are complete, which can take weeks or months.
after full-mouth reconstruction
After each procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan, Dr. Tozzi will explain what to expect and how to take care of your mouth. She may prescribe antibiotics or pain medication that should be filled before your treatment and taken as directed. You will feel some swelling or discomfort following certain procedures, such as implant placement, that will make it difficult to eat so a soft or liquid food diet is recommended.
