WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION?
Many patients are candidates for full mouth reconstruction. In order to determine your specific needs, a restorative dentist will perform a thorough oral examination, including dental x-rays. The information gained from this evaluation and the dental x-rays allows for the dentist to determine what procedures are needed for your full mouth reconstruction. It also allows the restorative dentist to determine how many appointments you may need to achieve your final results.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY?
Recovery time following full mouth reconstruction will vary from patient to patient. The overall length of your recovery time depends on what procedures you have had done, the length between these procedures, and the severity of any dental conditions.
Full mouth reconstruction may be divided into several dental treatments, which will allow proper healing in between each procedure. After a dental treatment, you may need to follow a modified diet while your mouth continues to heal. In some cases, over-the-counter or prescription medication is prescribed to help ease any pain or discomfort. Finally, an antiseptic mouthwash is sometimes prescribed to promote healing and reduce the risk of infection. Your cosmetic dentist will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions following your full mouth reconstruction.
