Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction, full mouth rehabilitation, and full mouth restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.

People with severe dental problems are candidates for a full mouth reconstruction. Following are common situations that require full mouth reconstruction:

  • Congenitally missing multiple teeth
  • Congenitally mis-formed teeth
  • Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (food, beverages, acid reflux) and tooth grinding.
  • Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma
  • Teeth that have been injured or fractured
  • Failing dental work
  • Bite dysfunction

Full mouth reconstruction is typically performed by prosthodontists. Other specialists such as periodontists (specializing in gum tissues), orthodontists (specializing in braces), and endodontists (specializing in root canal treatment) may be involved in the treatment procedures.

The length of the treatment varies depending on the situation. Most full mouth reconstructions involve multiple phases and office visits. It is not unreasonable to expect treatment to take 12 months or more.
