What Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

At 172 NYC Dental, our dental professionals always strive to provide outstanding dentistry. Reconstructing teeth means proper oral hygiene, the elimination of dental pathologies, and a sparkling smile that improves a patient’s confidence. Full mouth reconstruction, also known as full mouth rehabilitation, involves one or more procedures that allow us to restore a patient’s mouth with these goals in mind.

Common Reasons for Getting a Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction can address a number of oral health complications, such as:

  • Tooth loss due to decay or gum disease (periodontal problems)
  • Fractured teeth caused by an accident or trauma, such as a fall
  • Jaw muscle pain or tension headaches caused by bruxism (temporomandibular joint dysfunction)
  • Severely worn or broken teeth as a result of acid erosion or a systemic disease
  • Patients who have undergone treatment for oral cancer
  • Patients born with congenital genetic diseases such as amelogenesis imperfect
  • Patients who present as edentulous (no teeth present in mouth)
  • Misaligned teeth (buck teeth, underbite, overbites, crowding)

What Are the Benefits of Full Mouth Restoration Procedures?

The goals of this type of procedure are to restore the form and function of your teeth. Undergoing treatment will improve the aesthetic aspect, and depending on the specific procedure, you might also be able to use your teeth as though they were completely natural.

All of the available full mouth restorations will serve to:

  • Produce a healthy, natural-looking smile
  • Improve facial contour and profiles
  • Fill out faces
  • Reduce puppet lines and wrinkles by restoring proper vertical dimension and arch form
  • Make older patients look and feel younger
  • Restore vitality to the face and the psyche, boosting the patient’s confidence in their smile

Who Is a Good Candidate for Full Mouth Rehabilitation?

If you are a good candidate for a full mouth rehabilitation procedure, you should have:

  • The ability to undergo surgery safely and follow all pre-op and aftercare instructions
  • Uncomfortable or painful conditions that strongly restrict your normal dental functions
  • Multiple worn or damaged teeth that other procedures would be less effective in correcting

What Kind of Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures Do We Perform During Treatment?

If you need to get a full mouth dental reconstruction, your dentist will recommend the procedure that will achieve the best results. Below are your options:

1. Full Upper or Full Lower Dentures

These are removable appliances that restore all the teeth in the arch. These prostheses lie in the mouth and are held by the patient’s muscles and the skill of the dentist in extending the borders to their proper position. 

The pros:

  • They are extremely aesthetically pleasing and appear entirely realistic. 
  • The treatment is done quickly.
  • Installation is inexpensive compared to implant dentistry.

The cons:

  • Patients do lose a degree of function when compared to natural teeth and implants.

2. Implant-Supported Dentures

These are removable appliances that replace all the teeth in the arch. The dentures clip onto two to four implants.

The pros:

  • They are aesthetically appealing.
  • They replace teeth and missing bone.
  • The appliance has increased retention.
  • The natural feel has greater physical and emotional comfort for patients.

The cons:

  • There is an increase in expenditure to cover the cost of the implants.

3. Four on the Floor

Four implants hold a fixed bridge that is screwed into the implants and is designed to stay permanently in place.

The pros:

  • The bridge replaces all the teeth in the mouth.
  • The patient will have great functionality and security with this appliance.

The cons:

  • The patient must be made aware of how important it is to keep these appliances very clean. Proper oral hygiene is essential.

4. Implant Crown and Bridges

With concern to full mouth dental rehabilitation, a full mouth dental implant is the gold standard of care. In this case, implants are used to replace each tooth that is missing (implant crowns). In some cases, two implants are used to replace two-three missing teeth (implant-supported fixed bridge).

The pros:

  • Crowns restore the patient’s natural teeth.
  • Complete function, aesthetics, speech, and self-confidence are also restored.
  • Patients can eat, speak, floss, and kiss with no reservations.

The cons:

  • The restorations come with a financial commitment.

5. Porcelain Crowns and Onlays

In cases where porcelain crowns and onlays are used, the patient’s original teeth remain but might be broken and require root canal therapy. The finest porcelain materials (Emax, Zirconia) will restore the teeth to their beautiful form and function.

The pros:

  • The restoration is not invasive.
  • The restoration is lasting.
  • This treatment is relatively inexpensive compared to implant therapy.

The cons:

  • Crowns have a long but limited lifespan and will likely need replacement sometime in the future.

How Long Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Take?

How Long Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Take?

The time your full mouth reconstruction takes to complete will depend on the procedures you get. A full set of dental implants could take six months to complete, which will include the time your gums and mouth will need to heal after you get your implants installed. If you require bone grafts, your reconstruction could take up to a year to adjust for the additional recovery time.

What Are the Steps Involved in Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Because each patient will require a slightly different approach to a full mouth reconstruction, your procedure might differ from another’s. Still, the basic steps are the same for every patient, and your dentist will determine the best treatment plan for your case.

The basic steps for this procedure are:

  • The consultation: During this stage, your dentist will do an initial evaluation and discuss the procedure with you. This is when you will have the most time to ask questions and determine if the procedure is right for you.
  • Dental impressions: You will have impressions taken so your dental team can start working on your treatment plan.
  • Treatment for decay, periodontal disease or other dental health issues: If you have issues that need to be corrected before you undergo a full mouth reconstruction, you will have to take this step before proceeding.
  • Preparation of foundations or build-ups: You might require bone grafts or other work before the implant stage.
  • Placement of custom restorations: Your team will finish the restoration procedure. You may also have a follow-up visit so your doctor can see how the procedure went.

Some of the most common services involved with a full mouth restoration process include:

The 172 NYC Dental Team

When a patient comes to 172 NYC Dental with complex dental needs, they are treated with the utmost care, concern, and expertise. We listen to their problems, their expectations, and their fears. We develop a treatment plan suited intimately to that patient. We offer a variety of solutions depending on their overall health, age, condition of mouth, esthetics desires, functional needs, and finances.

In full mouth rehabilitation cases, we believe in a team approach. The restorative cosmetic dentist is a prosthodontist. This dentist is the team’s captain who oversees the entire case and works with various specialists to achieve a brilliant and coordinated result. 172 NYC Dental has specialists in all fields of dentistry.

Below is more information about our team of dental practitioners:

1. Prosthodontist

This is a dentist who specializes in the replacement of missing structures in the mouth. This includes teeth, gum, bone, and vertical dimension. This dentist has advanced training in cosmetics, occlusion, dental materials, implant restorations, implant-supported dentures, crowns, veneers, and onlays. They look at your face, eye color, and hair color to determine the shape and shade of your final restoration (teeth). They are responsible for your complete satisfaction with your treatment.

2. Periodontist

This is a dentist who specializes in treating the gum and bone of a patient’s jaw. We must have sound bones and gums in order to support the implants and bridges that are to be made. This dentist will solve any lingering infections, bleeding, and bad breath.

The periodontist is a surgeon who can perform gingival grafts, rebuild bone, perform crown lengthening procedures, extract teeth, and place implants. He develops the important foundation that gives strength and longevity to the final restoration. In very rare cases that require orthognathic surgery, they will consult with a maxillofacial surgeon.

3. Invisalign Orthodontist

A dentist with the aid of clear trays (aligners) can gently and efficiently move crooked teeth back into their proper position and aesthetic harmony, sometimes negating the need for extensive crowns.

4. Endodontist

This is a dentist who specializes in root canal therapy (RCT). By removing the infection from a diseased pulp (nerve), this dentist immediately relieves the pain associated with an abscessed tooth. The endodontist allows the restorative dentist to use the now healthy root to support a core and crown. This too negates the need for implants.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Cost With Insurance

Most full mouth reconstruction cases involve all the teeth in the mouth. Each case is unique, and each patient’s needs differ greatly. 172 NYC Dental accepts all PPO insurances. Your out-of-pocket costs will also depend on your insurance company.

The fees of the patient’s insurance company determine the cost of the case. Usually, there is a yearly deductible and a yearly limit as to what the insurance company will pay. 172 NYC Dental has expert treatment coordinators to maximize our patient’s coverage over two years worth of coverage. Most cases take six to 12 months to complete.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Cost Without Insurance

We have developed payment plans to help our patients, so you can experience brilliant, life-altering care while meeting all your financial requirements. The full cost will depend on your case. Please note that personal checks are currently unaccepted.

If your total is to exceed $5,000, we will automatically Zoom whiten your teeth at no charge. We care about you and all of our patients.
