Full mouth reconstruction

Reconstruction/restoration of the mouth

What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

If you have many broken, damaged or missing teeth, a full mouth reconstruction is often the only answer. This involves a combination of dental treatments which are designed to repair the damage caused, as well as giving you a set of healthy teeth and gums.

A full mouth reconstruction can involve implants, veneers, crowns, inlays, on-lays and a bridge. As such, it requires thorough planning and a high level of skill and expertise on behalf of the Dentist.

Reasons for a full mouth reconstruction / restoration

1.Trauma or decayed teeth which lead to injured or fractured teeth – These teeth may require replacing with implants, dentures or crowns and the various techniques can be discussed with you.

2.Sometimes facial muscle pain or jaw complaints may be symptoms of bite problems, also known as occlusion problems. The treatment may range from a simple bite guard that is worn at night, to more severe cases involving restorations. You can arrange an appointment with one of our Dentists, Specialists or Consultants who will develop a treatment plan for you.

What is the difference between a smile makeover and a full mouth reconstruction / restoration?

A smile makeover is an elective treatment you choose to have carried out to enhance your smile. A full mouth restoration is something you need to have performed for your health and well-being.

The full mouth reconstruction / restoration team

Depending on the complexity of your dental treatment, opinions may be sought from our Implantologists, Consultant Oral Surgeons and Prosthodontist.

Our Hygienist ensures that healthy gums are maintained, as your gums support your teeth. Intensive oral hygiene support may be required, which can be carried out under Local Anaesthesia.

Treatments may include the need for bone grafting, soft tissue contouring, and the consideration of colour, size and shape of teeth to fit with your facial profile.

A personal comprehensive treatment plan will be constructed for you. This will be in written form with all the risks and benefits set out for you. If you require a General Anaesthetic for your treatment, we can arrange an appointment with one of our Anaesthetists.

It is all part of the gentle, considerate approach which The Parkway is known for.
