Best Candidates 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 loose or broken restorations. 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 To Expect with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
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
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
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 gives us the opportunity to stay updated on your oral health and make sure any restorations we used continue to serve you well.
