Who needs full mouth reconstruction?  

We begin by assessing the patient's entire mouth and current state of dental health, as well as any systemic conditions and/or medications that could affect dental treatment.  There are a number of people who have dental problems throughout their mouths that must be treated comprehensively with a vision of a final result that improves both function and aesthetics. These patients may exhibit multiple missing teeth, numerous teeth with large fillings that are failing or exhibiting decay, cracked or broken teeth, or badly worn teeth due to bruxism (teeth grinding) or other habits.  In cases of full mouth reconstruction, our dentists at Metropolitan Dental Care are working with a highly skilled team of specialists to treatment plan for a comprehensive improvement of our patient's dental health, including finding replacement options for most or all natural teeth.

What is involved in a full mouth reconstruction?  

Full mouth reconstruction combines artistic aesthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function, and beauty of the mouth.  The treatments can include porcelain onlays, crowns, bridges, veneers, dental implants, and/or dentures that will essentially provide not only a "smile makeover", but improved chewing efficiency for the patient.  Everyone’s anatomy and jaw movements are different so everyone needs a different bite position to idealize their health and comfort. In some patients, other specialties, including orthdontics to move the teeth into ideal positioning may also be employed to facilitate the best possible outcome with final restorations.  At Metropolitan Dental Care, we have had astounding successes rebuilding individual's mouths to create a healthy, highly functional, and gorgeous smile.
