What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction combines multiple restorative, neuromuscular and cosmetic procedures. The goal is to restore not only the look of your teeth but also the structure and function. Why? Each of these things affects the other. For example, a broken tooth can cause a problem with your bite. This can lead to difficulty chewing, which creates wear on your teeth. This wear can then lead to jaw and neck soreness, headaches, even migraines.

Who Needs It?

There are several reasons why your teeth might be in bad shape, including neglect, injury and preventive dental care that has worn down and requires replacement. Full mouth restoration may be recommended if you:

  • Have several worn down, chipped or broken teeth
  • Have missing teeth
  • Experience chronic jaw pain, clicking or popping of the jaw
  • Have frequent headaches, back pain and muscle tenderness

Full mouth reconstruction will involve several treatments. Dr. Klein may recommend one or more of the following, depending on your specific situation:

  • Tooth filling and root canal treatment
  • Scaling and root planing
  • A bite repositioning orthodontic appliance
  • Mouthguard or night guard
  • Veneers
  • Dental crown
  • Dental inlays and dental onlays
  • Dental implants or a dental bridge
  • Dental bonding
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental braces
