What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is not a single process but a series of processes that address each of the involving parts that make the overall smile. Right from invisible jaws to the visible lips and gums, full mouth reconstruction addresses and fixes the dynamics of each to make a perfect and natural looking smile. 

In the earlier days, full mouth reconstruction was preferred only by the people suffering from tooth pain, decay, or unstructured or unhealthy gums. If you are missing a lot of teeth, or dreaming to have a beautiful smile, full mouth reconstruction helps you right in the way, of course after clear examination of what is required and not.

Most people feel better about their smile after proper makeover and full mouth reconstruction. However, it all depends on choosing the right dentist and following the right oral health and hygiene.

What is the difference between a smile makeover and a full mouth reconstruction?

Most people mis-understand smile makeovers and full mouth reconstruction. Though they share the visibly common goal of restoring an attractive smile, the procedures and the outcomes slightly vary from patient to patient and their concerns.

Smile makeover addresses only a few issues of teeth and gum whereas full mouth reconstruction is a much more invasive process in which the jaws are totally repaired from all the longer dental health problems.

Lost or poor oral health, or distracted oral functions make the basic daily activities like chewing, speaking more difficult and uncomfortable. You might have felt the scenario where you or your friend feeling discomfort out of oral or dental health. A full mouth reconstruction primarily aims in restoring the oral health and function of the individual by putting the right key in the lock of problems.

To make it far clear, Smile makeover is elective. Which means, it is chosen by the person who is more concerned about their aesthetics while presenting to someone or to make themselves feel comfortable and confident. 

Whereas, full mouth reconstruction is something one needs to address their one or more dental issues or to maintain the oral health and hygiene.

Repair Multiple Problems at One Time!


As we discussed in the beginning of our blog, Full mouth reconstruction procedure addresses multiple dental or oral issues and hence involves multiple procedures. It is the ideal procedure for people who underwent major dental injuries. Some of the common procedures followed are:

Orthodontics: Misaligned teeth can be straightened with this procedure. Braces and Invisalign are embedded on teeth to add the pressure on them and then make teeth aligned right.

Dental Implants: Missing teeth creates the gaps that look odd. Dental implants help in fixing the artificial yet natural looking teeth with strong functionalities.

Bone Grafting: As we grow older, the teeth and jaw bones weaken. Bone grafting helps in improving the bone density making the jaws available or strong to maintain the dental implants.

Crowns: These help in covering the broken or chipped tooth. In a few people, we might notice discoloration of teeth which can be covered by placing the right dental crowns.

Deep cleaning: Dental plaques are invisible causes of many major tooth decays or oral infections. Deep cleaning allows one to maintain a healthy oral structure.

How will you know you are the candidate for full mouth reconstruction?

Though everyone needs aesthetics to their teeth or smile, not everyone is capable or ready to go for these dental procedures. There are certain constraints to validate before undergoing this procedure.

Examines Teeth health:

Several missing teeth contribute to the jaw deterioration of the bone. Also, major decays in teeth also bring in severe gum diseases that reach to the roots and into jaw bone. All these lead to the severity of pain or increased sensitivity in the tooth. Cross examining for these helps in early recovery from them.  

Increased Pain:

Any dental issue causes minor or severe pain if ignored or ill-treated. These pains indicate the mal-functioning or infectious tooth which should be addressed immediately.

Oral Functioning Problems:

The common functional problem we may face is difficulty in chewing or speaking. If one or more teeth is damaged or decayed or infected, if unnoticed it leads to increase in pain or sensitivity preventing chewing even the soft food. This is the primary indication that the internal oral examination is important. 

Congenital Diseases:

Three most common congenital diseases include ectodermal dysplasia, enamel hypoplasia, and amelogenesis imperfecta affect people in many ways. They may face missing teeth, enamel weak, abnormal shaped teeth and underdeveloped jawbones.
