Full mouth reconstruction is a prosthodontic procedure that replaces some or all of your permanent teeth with long-lasting oral prosthetics. The goal of full mouth reconstruction is to restore your smile, reduce the risk of oral health problems, and make biting and chewing easier.
Dr. Jablow regularly uses full mouth reconstruction to treat various issues, including:
You might also benefit from full mouth reconstruction if you have a congenital condition that affects the alignment of your teeth or jaw.
Dr. Jablow uses several types of restorations to complete full mouth reconstructions, including:
A crown is a small cap bonded on top of a damaged or decaying tooth. Crowns restore your tooth to its near-original size and shape, reducing the risk of further complications.
A bridge fills a gap in your smile. Specifically, it replaces one (or several) teeth in a row. To prevent your bridge from moving out of position, Dr. Jablow bonds it to the healthy teeth near the space in your smile.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to your natural teeth. They mask minor imperfections like stains or unusually shaped teeth and make your smile appear more balanced and symmetrical.
Dental implants are screw-like posts made of titanium. Dr. Jablow places them beneath your gums during an outpatient procedure, and afterward, they integrate with your natural jawbone. Implants provide a foundation for restorations, like crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.
Dentures are removable oral prosthetics that are more affordable than implants. They aren’t invincible, but with proper care, dentures often last 5-7 years* and sometimes longer.
Before recommending full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Jablow reviews your dental health history, takes a series of oral X-rays, and asks about your goals for treatment. After gathering that information, she develops a custom care plan that aligns with your budget and needs.
Full mouth reconstruction often takes more than one appointment. That’s especially true if you’re getting dental implants or another type of restoration that requires impressions.
