What a Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Do

With modern dental technology, we are able to repair almost any damage to your teeth. This includes:

  • Decayed teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Crooked, crowding, or drifting teeth
  • Unhealthy gums

Typically, these problems can all be corrected at the same time. In under a month, many people will enjoy a completely beautiful new smile that will give them the ability to eat all the foods they used to enjoy, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. Gone will be the pain—both physical and emotional—of living with a damaged smile, and you will return to the days when your smile was healthy and whole.

The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process

Following your consultation and comprehensive examination, your dentist will tailor a full-mouth reconstruction plan specifically for your unique needs. We may suggest a variety of general and preventive, cosmetic, and/or restorative procedures to return your smile’s function and appearance. Dr. Hodges will address underlying dental conditions, then complete your dental treatment plan on your timetable. A diagnostic wax model depicting the proposed benefits of your treatment plan will help you envision the results. The model also allows Dr. Hodges an opportunity to assess fit and function of dental work before final restorations are placed.

Preventing Future Damage

Other times, it is necessary because of conditions in your mouth that need to be addressed.

TMJ is a jaw dysfunction that can lead to excessive tooth wear and damage. It can either be caused by or can cause bruxism. When reconstructing your smile, we will use dental principles that take into account your jaw and muscles to reduce or eliminate future damage from jaw problems.

If oral hygiene is the cause of your tooth damage, we don’t judge. We just talk to you about getting it right from today forward so you can continue to enjoy your re-beautified smile for the rest of your life.
