The full mouth reconstruction process is meant to help patients with complex dental health problems. It’s often a good solution for anyone who:

  • Has an advanced form of gum disease.
  • Is missing multiple teeth.
  • Is suffering from extensive tooth decay.
  • Has multiple teeth that were chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged in an accident.

These are just a few examples of situations that might call for a full mouth reconstruction. The best way to find out if the process is right for you is to call our office to schedule a consultation. If you are eligible for reconstruction, you can expect to see a lot of changes for the better in your mouth by the time the treatment’s done, such as a stronger, better-functioning bite.

The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process

First, we’ll talk to you about your oral health concerns and check your mouth to see what issues need to be dealt with. We’ll encourage you to speak up about your expectations for the procedure and what your goals for your smile are.

Next, we’ll design a treatment plan just for you. Said plan can include a variety of procedures depending on your needs. Fillings and crowns will likely be placed if you have any damaged teeth. We might suggest dental implants or another type of tooth replacement if any teeth have been lost. In some cases, cosmetic treatments might be suggested if you have any concerns specifically regarding the appearance of your smile.

A wax model of your teeth might be created to show you what the results of specific treatments will look like. This can help you narrow down which services are truly right for you before we carry out the reconstruction plan.

Understanding the Cost of a Full Mouth Reconstruction

The cost of your full mouth reconstruction isn’t something you can figure out just by doing a quick online search for prices. The procedures that make up the treatment plan are different for every patient, so it’s only natural that the amount you pay will also vary. An estimate of the overall cost will be given at your initial consultation after we have determined what your dental needs are. Patients that are worried about having to pay for multiple procedures upfront might want to consider applying for a financing plan through CareCredit.

Full Mouth Reconstruction FAQs

Frequently asked questions about full mouth reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction in Plano is a great solution for patients with severely damaged or missing teeth. However, it’s a big investment, and it’s normal to have a few concerns about the road ahead. Don’t worry. Dr. Shannon Stokes will explain everything during your initial consultation. You can also contact our office to speak with a member of our office or take a look at the most frequently asked questions below.

Does Getting a Full Mouth Restoration Hurt?

You don’t have to worry about a painful day in the dentist’s chair. Your cosmetic dentist in Plano, Dr. Stokes, will keep your comfort as his top priority. Based on your treatment plan, he can administer a local numbing agent to block any pain signals. Although you won’t feel any pain during your procedure, you may experience some pressure or unusual sensations. Your mouth may be tender for a few days after the effects of any numbing medications wear off. You can manage it using an over-the-counter pain reliever and eating soft foods. Dr. Stokes will review any additional aftercare instructions before you go home.

How Long Does a Full Mouth Reconstruction Take?

Every mouth and situation differs, so there’s no way to know how long the process will take without first examining your mouth. Some treatments can be performed in 1-2 appointments, but others can take several visits. Dr. Stokes will explain exactly how long you can expect the process to take during your consultation.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

It is unlikely your dental insurance will pay the entire cost of your treatment. Besides your consultation and diagnostic services, you can use your dental insurance for any medically necessary procedures. After meeting your annual deductible, your benefits can pay 50% to 80% of the expenses for many common restorative procedures until you reach your yearly limit. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize your coverage to lower the amount you’ll pay out-of-pocket. Dr. Stokes offers various financial solutions for any remaining balance, like monthly payments using CareCredit.

How Long Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Last?

Many factors will affect the duration of your results, like the procedures. Some treatments can last for many years, while others can last for decades. Dr. Stokes will discuss the lifespan of your treatment and what you can do to get the most from your investment, like brushing and flossing. Besides keeping your mouth clean, limit sugars and starches to prevent tooth decay. Stop any bad habits that can damage your teeth, like chewing on your fingernails. Visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup.
