What Happens During a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Treatment?
In the planning phase of your treatment for a full-mouth reconstruction, we will begin with a discovery period where we collect information via digital images, 3D cone beam scans, impressions, and molds of your teeth and facial structure. Your dentist will evaluate how your upper and lower teeth fit together, how well your jaw joints and facial muscles function, and how healthy your gums are to withstand restorations. Then, we will discuss all of the information collected to make informed decisions about what to do first by setting priorities of what must be done first. Our Made Ya Smile Dental team will present treatment options to you and help you determine the best plan of action for your needs and goals. Full-mouth reconstruction treatment plans are a compilation of the treatments necessary to bring health, comfort, appearance, and function back to your smile.

What Happens After a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Treatment?
You can count on multiple follow-up appointments when you are enduring several dental services consecutively. In general, most dental work will leave your teeth and gums swollen and sensitive to touch. If pain medication is not prescribed, your best bet is to have cold compresses, over-the-counter pain relievers, and a diet of soft foods to help you handle the discomfort. Our team at Made Ya Smile Dental Kingwood will also provide tips and suggestions on how to care for your mouth throughout your full-mouth reconstruction. If you experience fever, infection, excessive pain, or a lot of bleeding, please know you can call our practice at any time for assistance.
Will Insurance Cover My Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
It is not a bad idea to talk with your dental insurance provider to see what is and is not covered for a full-mouth reconstruction before having a formal treatment planning session. The process will go much smoother if you know ahead of time what is covered and what you will have to pay out-of-pocket once a limit has been met. Our billing department can assist you with filing claims. It is one of our goals to provide all of our patients the dental services and care they deserve without a heavy financial burden.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction FAQ

Full-mouth reconstruction and smile makeovers are similar in that they combine a variety of treatments and are customizable based on your needs. However, that's where the similarities stop. Dental reconstruction is performed to optimize your oral health and restore proper function to your mouth; a smile makeover, on the other hand, is a grouping of cosmetic procedures designed to enhance the appearance of your smile.

The length of your treatment will depend on what services are included in your treatment plan, as well as your overall oral health. Generally speaking, you can expect your treatment to take 1 – 2 hours. The healing process can take a few months.
