Find answers to full-mouth reconstruction FAQ in this blog to better understand how this treatment may benefit you.

What is a full-mouth reconstruction?

Much like a smile makeover, a full-mouth dental reconstruction gives patients the opportunity to have multiple cosmetic and functional issues addressed simultaneously, with the ultimate goal being a strong, beautiful, and healthy new smile. Full-mouth reconstruction is typically performed to replace or restore all of the patient’s teeth on the upper and lower arches.

What is included in a full-mouth dental reconstruction?

Each full-mouth rehabilitation at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates is tailored to align with the patient’s specific anatomy, conditions, concerns, and personal goals. Following an in-depth consultation, exam, and evaluation, Dr. Claustro will curate a customized treatment plan that may include cosmetic treatment, restorative procedures, periodontal therapies, and other techniques, such as:

  • Dental veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Dentures

How long does a full-mouth reconstruction take?

Because full-mouth rehabilitation is often an extensive procedure involving both arches, treatment typically occurs over the course of multiple appointments. To begin, a comprehensive exam and evaluation will be conducted to assess your current oral and dental health. Based on these findings, a full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan will be developed, which may involve tooth extraction, periodontal treatments, and other necessary steps to prepare the mouth for restoration.

If dental implants are included in your dental reconstruction, it can take up to 6 –12 months for the implants to integrate with the jawbone, after which time you’ll return to have your new restorations placed. Overall, it may take over a year for the complete full-mouth reconstruction treatment schedule to take place.

Am I a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction?

Before starting a full-mouth reconstruction treatment, it is critical that the patient’s overall oral health is intact. Should any issues be detected on your initial evaluation, those will be addressed prior to beginning reconstructive work. Ideal candidates for a full-mouth reconstruction include patients who:

  • Have multiple missing teeth
  • Require the restoration of one or both arches
  • Wish to restore better oral and dental function
  • Are in good overall health otherwise
  • Have realistic expectations for the timeline of full-mouth reconstruction

How can a full-mouth reconstruction improve my smile?

With a full-mouth reconstruction in Ashburn, VA, patients can enjoy:

  • The ability to eat, drink, chew, smile, and laugh with confidence
  • A brighter, whiter smile
  • Stronger, more durable teeth
