Full Mouth Reconstruction


the dental lab used in full mouth reconstruction in Woodland Hills, CA by Joseph Dautremont, DDS
Your mouth is made up of several components, and these components work together to perform a wide variety of different important tasks every day. From eating and speaking to flashing an unforgettable grin, a healthy, fully-functional mouth is essential. However, there are numerous factors that can affect the condition of your mouth, your oral health, your smile and your overall quality of life. If your mouth is suffering, the office of Joseph Dautremont, DDS can help with a full mouth reconstruction.

Reasons for a Full Mouth Reconstruction


A full mouth reconstruction is a procedure that involves a series of procedures that are designed to restore and rebuild the teeth in your upper or lower jaw. In some cases, it can be used to correct issues in both jaws. The full mouth reconstruction is a customizable treatment that involves the use of restorative dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, periodontics and oral surgery. There are several different situations in which a full mouth reconstruction may be used.
•  You have decayed, fractured, or otherwise damaged teeth.
•  You have teeth that have been severely worn down, due to acid erosion or bruxism.
•  You have suffered oral or facial trauma.
•  You have lost teeth. This can occur as a result of trauma, bruxism, gum disease, decay and more.
•  Your teeth or your jaws are misaligned, which can lead to issues such as TMJ disorder.

Your Initial Exam


Before you can undergo a full mouth reconstruction, you first need to have a comprehensive initial consultation. During this consultation, we take the time look over all of the areas in your mouth to determine which treatments are best for your specific needs. This exam involves a visual inspection, digital X-rays, pictures of your mouth, and impressions. Several things are checked during your consultation.
•  Your teeth. We check the condition of your teeth, taking note of decay, chips, fractures, and other damage.
•  Your gums. We also check the conditions of your gums, looking for signs of gum disease. We can also determine the extent of gum disease, noting redness, swelling, pocket depth, and gum recession. We will also note any areas in your mouth that have excessive amounts of gum tissue.
•  Your jaw. We look at your jaw for alignment issues. A misaligned jaw can cause problems such as pain and wear on your teeth. Alignment issues can also affect other treatments we may need to provide, so these issues will need to be addressed first.

Once we have determined the condition of your mouth, and what treatments are needed, we can then begin your full mouth reconstruction. In some cases, this may mean that we need to work with other specialists. Before your treatment begins, we will draw up a detailed treatment plan that will outline what treatments you need and in what order they will be performed.

What Procedures are Done During a Full Mouth Reconstruction?


Your full mouth reconstruction is unique to your specific needs. Treatment typically occurs over the course of a few different appointments, and it can often take up to a full year before the desired results are achieved. Common procedures involved in a full mouth reconstruction include:
