"I have been going to Made Ya Smile in the Woodlands since August of 2022. I went to Made Ya Smile because i had not been to the dentist in over 10 years. My teeth were in really bad shape and i had many cavities. So far all of the work that Made Ya Smile has done has been painless, inexpensive and very good quality. I could have went to any other dentist but i chose Made Ya smile because of their experience in dental repairs . I am very pleased with the treatment i have received and i will never let another dentist work on my mouth again after the amazing treatment i have gotten here."- D.H. / Google / Mar 31, 2023
Am I a Candidate for Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Each patient's needs are unique, which means a full-mouth reconstruction looks different for each individual. However, the best candidates for treatment have cracked or broken teeth, severely worn down teeth, tooth decay, tooth loss, or are in need of a full-mouth dental implant restoration. It's also beneficial for patients who have a genetic dental disorder, like misshapen teeth, mottled or translucent teeth, or smaller teeth that have never developed properly. If this is the case, Made Ya Smile Dental will recommend solutions to address these needs, as well as procedures to help your jaw and gums.
What Happens During a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Treatment?
When you schedule a consultation at our clinic in The Woodlands, TX, we will discuss your dental goals as well as concerns to understand which treatments are best for your situation. Then, we will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, including taking 3D cone beam scans and digital x-rays to catch any hidden issues we can't see on the surface. Practitioners will also check your bite, your jaw joints, and facial muscles. With this information, our staff is fully equipped to present you with treatment options. If you are anxious about getting a dental procedure, we will also review options for sedation so you can feel comfortable and calm. Depending on your needs, we may need one appointment or several, but our staff is sure to keep you updated every step of the way to address any questions and concerns. Full-mouth reconstruction is a compilation of procedures to bring function and appearance back to your smile. These may include but are not limited to:
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental implants
- Crowns or bridges
- Porcelain veneers
- Gum or bone grafting
- Tooth extractions
- Orthodontics/teeth straightening
- Root canal therapy
- TMJ therapy
- Gum contouring or other periodontal treatment
- Teeth whitening
What Happens After a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Treatment?
After each procedure, Made Ya Smile Dental will give you instructions about what you should expect in terms of pain management and medications, such as pain relievers that you may need. If you have any minor discomfort or swelling, we recommend a soft food diet and cold compresses to keep you feeling comfortable. Our practitioners will also offer you advice about cleaning and caring for your teeth and gums following your appointment. Once we have completed the full-mouth reconstruction, it is essential to stay updated with routine examinations and cleanings at Made Ya Smile Dental at our location in The Woodlands, TX. This allows us to stay updated on your oral health and make sure any restorations we used continue to serve you well.
Will Insurance Cover My Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Before beginning your treatment plan at our clinic, Made Ya Smile Dental will call your dental health insurance provider to review your benefits and costs since some treatments may be covered by your plan. We understand that your insurance may not fully cover your total mouth reconstruction cost, so our friendly and caring team will work with you to meet your dental goals and budget so you can get the treatment you need. This is why we offer several methods of convenient payment options, as well as third-party financing with CareCredit®.
