Full mouth reconstruction combines one (or multiple) restorative procedures to repair missing or damaged teeth. It’s a safe and effective way to improve the health, function, and aesthetic appearance of your smile.
Dr. Davidson specializes in full mouth reconstruction using All-On-4® dental implants. All-On-4 implants are unique in that they support an entire row of artificial teeth with just four implants. That means less downtime, quicker recovery, and a reduced risk of complications.
Anyone who has lost or damaged most or all of their teeth can benefit from full mouth reconstruction. If you’re missing teeth, you’re more likely to experience oral health problems like gum recession and bone loss. Restoring your smile to its near-original condition significantly reduces the risk of these and other issues.
No two full mouth reconstruction treatment plans are exactly alike. Depending on your needs, Dr. Davidson might recommend repairing your smile with crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures, or All-On-4 dental implants.
Before designing a custom treatment plan, Dr. Davidson conducts an oral exam and asks what you like and dislike about your smile. Afterward, he takes dental X-rays to assess the condition and alignment of your teeth and jaw.
Once Dr. Davidson determines your needs, he creates a full mouth reconstruction treatment plan. Usually, that includes a series of at least two appointments spaced several weeks apart. If you elect to get All-On-4 implants, the process takes anywhere between six months and a year. That’s because it takes several months for the implants to integrate with your jawbone.
To maintain the results of your full mouth reconstruction, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene. Dr. Davidson recommends brushing and flossing twice daily and visiting the office every six months for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning.
To protect your restorations, wear a mouthguard when playing sports and avoid bad habits like biting your nails, chewing on ice cubes, or opening packaging with your teeth. By adhering to these guidelines, it’s possible to maintain your restorations for 10-15 years and sometimes even longer.
