What is Smile Reconstruction?

A smile or full mouth reconstruction involves the reconstruction or restoration of the entire structure of the mouth. Here, general dentists, restoration specialists, periodontists, and oral specialists at McDonald Dental will work together to recreate and restore your dental structure.

There are several reasons why you may need to opt for full mouth reconstruction, including tooth loss, dental trauma, fractures, chipped teeth, severely worn out teeth, or issues with the jaw and overall dental structure.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Process

The first step in a full mouth reconstruction is to come in for a proper oral examination. Through the examination, we will determine the extent of damage to the dental structure and chart a path for the treatment, which may involve teeth replacement, restoration, gum treatment, and corrective surgery. The examination will include:

•  Teeth examination to determine which restorative treatments you require. They may include implants, bridges, crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, etc., the treatment you get will depend on tooth decay, chips, cracks, teeth length, and tooth movement.
•  Gum inspection will involve looking at the health of your gums and whether you have periodontitis or other gum issues or not. In case you do have gum disease, you may need a gum graft or even a bone graft, depending on the extent of damage caused.
•  Occlusion is also essential for a misalignment of the upper and lower jaw can leave the dental structure susceptible to damage, including the development of temporomandibular joint disorders, teeth wear, chronic headaches, and failed restoration.
•  Appearance plays an essential role in the smile reconstruction process. Thus, the dentist will look into the shape, color, size of the teeth to ensure they recreate the ideal smile for you.
