Overview

Reconstruction of the whole mouth may enhance the health, function, and appearance of your gums, teeth, and jawbone for more efficient chewing, biting, speech, along with a more attractive grin. Full-mouth restoration at Contemporary Dental Arts may contain (but isn't limited to) inlays, onlays, bridges, crowns, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and dentures. Certain full-mouth reconstruction procedures may also demand a gum or bone graft. As an experienced dentist, Dr. Lauren Shanard offers full-mouth restoration at her practice in Williston, VT that can help to improve both your oral health and the appearance of your smile. She will pay attention to your concerns and needs prior to making your unique full-mouth restoration treatment program.

Best Candidates

Full-mouth reconstruction may be needed if you've lost some teeth or have many teeth with large fillings that need replacement. You may also have teeth with widespread decay or teeth that are cracked, broken, or badly worn down because of bruxism (persistent teeth grinding). You may have dental ailments or even a hereditary disorder like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth), which all require extensive treatment. You might choose to replace older crowns, or just want to enhance your mouth for better comfort or health. In more complex cases, your degraded gums and teeth might have caused a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction may revive the whole face once the appropriate amount of teeth are in place.

What To Expect

Following a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and bite, Dr. Shanard might suggest full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment program will be created depending on the condition of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, facial muscles, and dental bite. Dr. Shanard will discuss your therapy and sedation options, and her own recommendations in your appointment to make sure your treatment strategy fits your wants and goals. As soon as your treatment program is made, she will discuss exactly what to expect in your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your appointments. In general, a full-mouth reconstruction will require a few visits to Contemporary Dental Arts. Dr. Shanard will schedule your treatments with breaks in between to let you recover until the next step is started.

Recovery

After every treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, Dr. Shanard will describe what to expect and how to care for your mouth. She can write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine that needs to be filled prior to your procedure. You may experience some swelling or discomfort following certain processes, such as implant placement that will make it difficult to eat, so a soft or liquid food diet may be best for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, you must keep your restored oral health with good flossing and brushing in your home. Yearly dental examinations and twice yearly cleanings in Contemporary Dental Arts will also be helpful. Throughout your examinations, Dr. Shanard can track the health of your own restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jaw.

Financing

During your initial consultation, Dr. Shanard can create your own treatment strategy according to your objectives, needs, and budget. She will provide you various choices to make certain that your full-mouth reconstruction is more affordable. Contemporary Dental Arts takes multiple payments, such as low-interest medical financing. If you've got dental insurance, then we will contact your supplier to confirm your benefits and estimate your personal costs.
