Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Full-mouth reconstruction from our surgical team may be ideal if you have severely damaged teeth that need to be extracted and replaced, missing teeth, bone loss, or jaw problems that require corrective surgery. Certain congenital or developmental dental disorders may also be addressed with a full-mouth approach to care. In more advanced cases, your tooth or bone loss might have caused sunken cheeks or other visible changes in facial structure. A full-mouth reconstruction can rejuvenate the entire face when the correct quantity of teeth are in place, which allows for more efficient chewing, biting, and speech capabilities.
What To Expect with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Our team will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and bite utilizing the latest in diagnostic technology. Through advanced cone beam scans and digital imaging, we can gain a detailed perspective to analyze your treatment needs and plan for the procedures that can deliver the best possible outcomes. Your personalized treatment program will be created, depending on the state of your own teeth, gums, temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, facial muscles, and bite. Following your exam, we will go over your treatment options and sedation choices and help you determine the full-mouth plan that fits your desires and goals. Once your treatment plan is created, our surgical team will let you know what to expect during your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your procedures accordingly. Full-mouth reconstruction may require several visits to Capital District Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons so that your treatment can be completed in stages. We will plan your procedures with time in between to allow your mouth to heal until the next step is taken.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
After each procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, you can count on our clinical staff describing what to expect and how to care for your mouth. Prescription antibiotics or pain medicine may be prescribed by our surgeons, depending on your needs, and should be taken as directed. You may feel some discomfort or swelling following certain procedures, such as implant placement or tooth extractions. Eating a soft food diet may be most appropriate for you during the healing phases of your care. Once your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, it is essential to keep up with your oral health with good flossing and brushing at home and schedule routine cleanings and exams with your general dentist. You will also be referred back to your dentist to complete any necessary bridge, denture, crown, or other restorative procedures.
