Understanding Full Mouth Reconstruction

Posted by

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the state of your smile and have multiple concerns about your overall oral health, the office of Dental Specialists of Darien is well equipped to help. With the skilled and experienced support of our specialty-trained prosthodontist, even the most challenging smiles can be transformed into ones that look great and feel good. As skilled and experienced providers of care, we offer the most advanced services and proven methods of treatment to help patients smile with confidence and ease.

Just as the name implies, a “full mouth reconstruction” involves a series of procedures that are designed to address complex issues and restore or replace multiple teeth for an all around healthier and more attractive smile. Although the process of full mouth reconstruction primarily involves our prosthodontist, an ideal treatment plan may also require the involvement of other dental specialists to address significant periodontal, orthodontic, or endodontic issues as well as other oral health concerns.

Typically, a candidate for full mouth reconstruction is an individual whose smile has been cosmetically and functionally debilitated by any number of factors including extensive tooth loss, dental trauma, dental decay, a TMJ disorder, bruxism (teeth-grinding), or a range of medical conditions and treatments involving the head and neck area. Additionally, individuals with congenital disorders that have dental manifestations like missing teeth or defective tooth structure may also be candidates for full mouth reconstruction.

Whatever the case may be, patients can feel confident that the look, feel, and function of their smiles are in the best of hands at our office! Prosthodontists are experts in the field of cosmetic and restorative dentistry and proficient in all methods of tooth replacement. From the fabrication of partial or full dentures and fixed bridges to the full range of options in implant dentistry, our prosthodontist understands the complexities of achieving facial harmony and balance, creating an aesthetically pleasing smile, and establishing an optimally functional bite.

At the office of Dental Specialists of Darien, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
