What Is Full Mouth Restoration?

A full mouth restoration is a process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth, in both the upper and lower jaws. This can involve numerous procedures and span several months or more. You may need a full mouth reconstruction if:
•  You have teeth that are chipped, fractured, or injured
•  You have teeth that are severely worn from teeth grinding or long-term acid erosion
•  You have missing teeth due to trauma or decay
•  You have persistent jaw, muscle, or headache pain due to a malocclusion (improper bite)
•  You have severely stained teeth
•  You have irregularly shaped teeth
•  You have significant gum recession due to periodontal disease

Our goal is to replace all problematic teeth, old fillings, old dental crowns, and old veneers while improving your bite position. The new dental work is designed to create a beautiful, functional smile that benefits your oral and overall health.

Full Mouth Restoration Process

If you are interested in full mouth restoration, the first step is scheduling a consultation appointment. During your consultation, David Thurber, DDS will examine your mouth to determine the extent of the issue, and which treatment options may be applicable. The examination process may involve x-rays, photographs, 3D digital scans, impressions, and a comprehensive review of your medical records. In particular, David Thurber, DDS will pay close attention to:
•  Your teeth. The state of your teeth will determine what restorative procedures are necessary. This includes porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, inlays or onlays, and dental implants. During your exam, we will make a note of cavities, wear, crown length, jaw mobility, cracks, and previous root canals.
•  Your gum tissue. Gum (periodontal) disease is the result of an untreated infection that forms around the roots of your teeth. If you suffer from periodontal disease, you may need to undergo a scaling and root planing procedure. Depending on the severity of the disease, you may also need more intensive treatments to ensure your new teeth will have a sturdy foundation.
•  Your temporomandibular joints. These joints allow your jaw to function as a sliding hinge, and are largely responsible for your ability to chew, speak, and smile. They also dictate your bite alignment. We will need to correct malocclusion before you receive additional restorative procedures.

Possible Procedures

Once David Thurber, DDS has the necessary information, we can develop a comprehensive treatment plan to complete your restoration. Possible procedures include:
•  Dental Crowns. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over your natural teeth to provide additional support and improve aesthetics.
•  Tooth Extractions. Extensive decay or structural damage to a tooth may be cause for extraction during a full mouth restoration.
•  Fixed Bridges. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. A poetic, or false tooth, is suspended between two dental crowns to fill the space. These crowns can be supported by adjacent teeth or dental implants.
•  Root Canal Therapy. When the infection spreads to a dental pulp within the tooth, a root canal may be necessary to save the tooth.
•  Full Dentures. If you are missing all or most of your teeth, you may need to receive a full denture. New technologies and materials have greatly improved the aesthetics and functional capabilities of dentures.
•  Teeth Whitening. Professional whitening solution can be used to combat unsightly stains and improve aesthetics.
•  Periodontal Treatment. Your gums are an important part of your oral health. Before you can receive a new dental appliance, you may need to undergo periodontal treatment.
