Full reconstruction can help patients improve their self-esteem and enjoy the smiles they have always wanted.
Dental decay or disease
If left untreated, tooth decay can put teeth at risk of needing replacement.
Gum disease can result in losing multiple teeth. This is especially likely if a problem goes unaddressed for too long.
A full mouth reconstruction may be necessary to restore the proper function of the teeth after significant trauma.
Full mouth reconstruction is the rebuilding or replacement of damaged or missing teeth. This dental treatment can help patients restore their mouths from extensive damage, pervasive decay, and other comprehensive problems. Correcting such damage can help you enjoy a healthier and happier life.
Patients who have dental problems throughout their entire mouths and require extensive restoration are good candidates for full mouth reconstruction. These problems may result from significant trauma during an accident, decay, wear from grinding, or habit-based damage. Other treatment candidates include people with severe dental conditions from birth, such as amelogenesis, dentinogenesis imperfecta, and ectodermal dysplasia.
Some reconstruction treatments involve surgery, particularly implants or procedures that necessitate bone grafting. This typically requires that the patient is in good overall health. Therefore, a full mouth reconstruction may not be an immediate option for patients with other health issues.
Full mouth reconstruction is available from Arizona Family Dental in Chandler and the surrounding area. There are numerous treatment options to help restore teeth' form and function.

How much does a full mouth reconstruction cost?
A full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment that involves multiple procedures. The cost will vary for each patient depending on their treatment process and insurance coverage. People should contact their insurance provider for more information before seeking treatment.
Are there functional benefits to a complete mouth reconstruction?
Yes, having a complete and healthy set of teeth can improve eating, speaking, comfort, and more. Patients with extensive dental damage or other issues may benefit functionally from a complete mouth reconstruction. Additionally, reconstruction can help with long-term oral hygiene.
Which is the best type of full mouth reconstruction?
There is no best type of full mouth reconstruction. Every patient’s situation and needs are different. The best treatment process for one patient will not be the best for another. We will talk about all a patient’s options during their consultation.
Are X-rays a part of full mouth reconstructions?
X-rays are an important part of many dental treatments, including full mouth reconstructions. They allow us to identify and diagnose issues so we can provide the best treatment options. Today’s X-ray technology is safe and advanced, so patients do not have to worry about getting them done.
