You’ve decided to go to your dentist and he/she said that the only thing left to do is to get a full mouth reconstruction.
It’s been years and it finally makes sense; you’ve found yourself experiencing different teeth problems that you just weren’t able to treat.
Your teeth have always ached, you’ve experienced pain in different regions of your mouth and yet you couldn’t understand why. Some of your teeth are either chipped or find themselves in a state way beyond repair because of the damage caused by cavities, accidents, or different everyday situations.
Even if it sounds tragic or pretty wild, there’s nothing you should worry about. Full mouth reconstructions are used to help people be able to smile again.
You might be sitting in front of your screen right now and wondering what a full mouth reconstruction is. Let us help you answer your questions.
What is a full mouth reconstruction?
Also known as full mouth rehabilitation or full-mouth restoration, full mouth reconstruction is a dental procedure in which the patient’s teeth are reconstructed, rebuilt, or replaced.
This procedure combines different disciplines of dentistry, such as restorative dentistry (which helps in recovering the functionality and the restoration of the teeth), dental esthetics, oral surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, etc.
The reasons for the need for a full mouth reconstruction may differ from patient to patient. Some of those causes might be:
- The patient has experienced teeth loss because of decay and or trauma (because of accidents and such).
- The patient has experienced an injury or a fracture on their teeth or mouth.
- The patient’s teeth are worn out due to decomposition or long-term exposure to acid (certain chemicals, reflux, beverages, or food).
- The patient is constantly experiencing headaches, jaw pain, or muscle pain.
If you’re experiencing any of these aforementioned situations or conditions, please contact your dentist as soon as possible. The dentist will examine the situation and he or she will let you know what the next step to take is.
Steps for a full mouth reconstruction:
The test results came in; your dentist already told you that you’re eligible for a full mouth reconstruction.
You might need some new crowns, some implants, etc. This might sound a little confusing at first, and you will start wondering what is there to do next.
This shouldn’t be something to worry about; allow us to guide you through the steps that will be taken.
The first step of a full mouth reconstruction is the consultation process with the dentist.
Both your dentist and you will discuss what the goals for this procedure will be: ideal results, how quickly they want to see changes, etc. The dentist will ask you about everyday habits such as smoking, what is it that you eat or drink, any medications that you might be taking at the moment, etc.
After the initial consultation is done, the dentist will conduct different oral tests, neck and head examinations, and see what the real damage of the condition is.
Your dentist will take some records; he will examine your oral cavity using x-ray scans, using images or impressions of your teeth.
Your dentist will proceed to create a digital design of the aftermath of the full mouth reconstruction procedure and the expected locations of where the teeth will be after the treatment.
You’ll be able to test a mockup of the restoration to see if it adjusts to both your needs and looks; this stage is important as it allows the dentist to perform any modifications to the original design if needed.
Your dentist will create a treatment plan after all of the aforementioned steps have been taken already. She or he will let you know what the steps to be taken are going to be and which procedures will have to be performed to make sure that you will be able to smile again.
Your dentist will let you know about the approximate or total costs of the necessary procedure and how much time it’ll take to be treated.
Please keep in mind that a full mouth reconstruction can take a long time to be completed because of the time that the treatments might take, so you’ll be paying the dentist a few visits for quite some time before everything is finished. Some procedures need some time to heal before completing them.

The cost for a Full Mouth Reconstruction:
As it was stated before in this blog, the full cost can only be calculated once the dentist has performed the necessary examinations and evaluations.
That way, the dentist will know what to do and, therefore, he or she will give you the full list of necessary procedures.
Most Full Mouth Reconstructions include dental implants (a standard titanium dental implant starting at $750 dollars), a dental crown (starting at $350 dollars), dental extractions (starting at $190 dollars), etc.
