What is a full mouth reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is a procedure which combines multiple dental procedures into a comprehensive restorative procedure. The procedure can include: dental implants, bridges, crowns, veneers, orthodontic treatments, periodontal care, oral/maxillofacial surgery, etc. A reconstruction does not have to occur all at once. Because of the scope of work and recovery necessary, in some cases, it is best to schedule parts of the procedure weeks or months apart. A full mouth reconstruction gives you and your dentist an opportunity to address cosmetic issues with your smile and restore the full functionality of your teeth.
Reasons for a full mouth reconstruction
There are a few particular reasons why a patient may need a full mouth reconstruction. Significant loss or decay of a majority of teeth which has occurred over time.

Facial trauma which has damaged a significant number of teeth or the oral/facial structures.
