Full Mouth Reconstruction

The best way to resolve multiple dental issues is with full mouth reconstruction. Let’s take a closer look at what it entails.

Full mouth reconstruction is a procedure, or series of procedures, which restores healthy functioning to someone’s mouth and teeth. If you have missing teeth, unhealthy gums or other complications in your mouth, full mouth reconstruction (FMR) may be the holistic treatment for you. It’s important to note that FMR is not purely an aesthetic treatment, and is meant for people with medical issues affecting the mouth.

The question you might have now is how long will full mouth reconstruction take? Every case is unique but the dentist will be able to give you a good basic timeline. The following post will tell you more about what you can expect.

Full Reconstruction Treatment Plan

An initial consultation appointment with a dentist must first be made so they can create a proper dental treatment plan. The dentist will need to decide on the first treatment option, which will be based on the types of treatments the patient will need. A full reconstruction treatment plan may involve pulling teeth, replacing teeth, using dental bridges, using dental implants or dentures or even using teeth whitening procedures.

Rebuilding and Repairing

The full construction of the mouth focuses on rebuilding and repairing the mouth so it can once again be healthy. Because the construction process can take many months to complete, some dental patients wonder if it would be better if they just got dentures instead of repairing natural teeth. While dentures are indeed beneficial for some dental patients, when the option to save natural teeth is available, this is often the best path to take. Natural teeth were meant to last a lifetime, and with a little dental assistance, that can still be possible. Read more at Beltran Dental Surgery…
