What is a full mouth reconstruction or restoration?
As the name implies, a full mouth restoration is when a patient undergoes a series of procedures for rebuilding or replacing all of their teeth.
Full mouth restorations or reconstructions combine esthetics with restorative dentistry in order to enhance the beauty, health, and function of the patient’s mouth.
When talking about full mouth restorations, one must take into consideration both function and aesthetic when proposing a comprehensive plan that will seek to improve the health, function and beauty of the patient’s mouth.
Full mouth restorations are made possible at our Clinic thanks to the great interdisciplinary team of Specialists that are constantly working together to recommend the best route to take according to each Patient’s needs.

Candidates For a Full Mouth Restoration
Some Patients may only be considering a full mouth restoration due to aesthetic concerns. These patients’ teeth might be in good shape and would benefit from the use of restorations such as dental crowns and porcelain veneers to achieve the successful and predictable result they are looking for: the smile they have always wanted and deserve every day.
For example, patients who have bruxism (teeth grinding) and have badly worn teeth, due to conditions such as Ectodermal Dysplasia Ameliogenesis, or Dentinogenisis Imperfecta, are patients in need of a full mouth reconstruction.
Other Patients might require the use of dental implants to provide a long lasting, fixed solution that will address their dental concerns and needs, such as Patients who have lost multiple teeth, or that have large fillings that may be failing, or those who have cracked, broken teeth and that have decay. When this is the case, we always like to first make sure that these patients are indeed good candidates for such dental implants. When you first reach out to us, our Patient Coordinator will ask you some questions that will provide our Doctors with a better understanding of your case.
Patients who have had oral cancer may also require a full mouth reconstruction to replace missing teeth and in some cases, replace missing structures of the oral cavity.
