Who is a Candidate for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Procedures may vary based on the needs of each patient, including those who have teeth that are cracked or broken, worn down from erosion, or misshapen. You can also benefit from a personalized procedure if you have teeth that are abnormally small due to genetics or discolored due to stains or certain medications. Our dentist may choose from any number of treatments, including dentures, fillings, bridges, or crowns. To support your overall oral health, we may partner with different specialists for complex care such as bone or gum grafting. Made Ya Smile offers patients a custom consultation to see which procedure is best for their situation.
What to Expect During Full-Mouth Reconstruction
To plan for your full-mouth treatment, our dentist will meet with you to discuss your concerns, needs, and preferences. We review images taken from 3D cone beam scans and low-radiation digital x-rays to understand the health of your teeth, jaw, and bone to plan out your future procedures. Made Ya Smile will also assess your facial profile, jaw joints, and bite to see how your upper and lower teeth fit together. This data will allow us to choose treatment options that benefit your oral health.
Throughout the process, Made Ya Smile is available to answer your questions and help you feel comfortable. If you are anxious about getting a procedure, you should know we take a gentle approach with all our patients and offer oral-conscious sedation and nitrous oxide gas to help you feel relaxed. Our goal is to restore the health and function back to your smile, whether you need one simple procedure or a complex series of treatments. Treatments range from dental implants, inlays or onlays, teeth whitening solutions, root canal therapy, or TMJ care. We also partner with local specialists for gum and bone grafting, orthodontics, and other treatments to make sure you enjoy optimal health.
