For patients whose teeth and gums are failing because of extensive decay or damage, Dentistry Asleep® offers full-mouth reconstruction. This comprehensive treatment combines necessary restorative and cosmetic procedures to rebuild and restore all of the teeth along both the upper and lower jaws.
Full-mouth reconstruction, also known as full-mouth restoration or full-mouth rehabilitation, may be necessary if:
At Dentistry Asleep, we don’t dwell on why full-mouth reconstruction may be required. Our goal is to help restore a patient’s healthy, functional and beautiful smile. And we do so non-judgmentally.
Furthermore, you can be certain that your treatment will happen while you are completely comfortable. As a Certified Specialist in Dental Anesthesia. Dr. Dann offers a full range of sedation techniques from mild sedation, such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), to moderate sedation with intravenous sedation and finally light levels of general anesthesia for patients who prefer to be completely asleep.
If you think that you may be a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction, then the first step is for Dr. Dann to conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gum tissue, as well as your jaw muscles and joints to determine if TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) will be a factor in your treatment. Of course, the esthetics of your teeth—their color, shape and size—as well as their proportional relationship to your mouth, lips, gums and face are critical factors in planning reconstruction.
This exam will also necessitate x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth. Once Dr. Dann has gathered all the information he needs, then he will develop a customized treatment plan. Your plan will likely require a number of restorative and cosmetic procedures completed over the course of multiple office visits. The procedures necessary may include:
For some of the procedures required for full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Dann may need to refer you to a qualified specialist, including an oral surgeon, a periodontist and an orthodontist. Dentistry Asleep, however, will always oversee your treatment plan.
When your full-mouth reconstruction is completed, you’ll have a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.
