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.

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.
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.

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.
