If your smile is so marred by imperfections and flaws that you are reluctant to speak or smile in front of family and friends—never mind coming to see the dentist—then Dr. James Mace and his team of dental hygienists and dental assistants in Washington, MO, would like you to reconsider. We want to see your smile with all of its flaws, because then we can formulate a plan that will rebuild your teeth and your oral health, as well as renew your self-confidence. This plan is called full mouth reconstruction. Also called full-mouth rehabilitation or full-mouth restoration, this procedure is essentially a road map of restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments that Dr. Mace performs to rebuild teeth in both your upper and lower arches.
Patients who need full-mouth reconstruction usually have a combination of dental problems that may include:
- Severely decayed teeth
- Missing teeth
- Chipped and cracked teeth
- Broken and fractured teeth
- Teeth that are severely worn down, either because of acid erosion or teeth grinding and clenching
- Symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder such as jaw pain and headaches
Full-Mouth Reconstruction with the Washington Dentist
The process of building your new smile begins with a thorough examination that will likely include digital x-rays and intra- and extra-oral images. In addition, Dr. Mace may also need a Panorex image, a two-dimensional dental x-ray that shows both your upper and lower jaws on one film. With this information, Dr. Mace can begin to create the plan for your step-by-step full-mouth reconstruction to correct each of the problems in your mouth.
While planning, Dr. Mace will also consider your smile goals and any concerns you might have. He will want to know what you hope to achieve with full-mouth reconstruction and if you have any concerns, such as recurring pain. Our business office will also work with you to create a schedule that is convenient and financing that accommodates your budget.
Your individualized full-mouth reconstruction may require a number of various treatments, including:
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Dental crowns
- Inlays or onlays
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
- A partial or full dentures
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
If Dr. Mace is unable to complete any required work, then we will refer you to one of our associated specialists to aid in your full-mouth restoration.
