WHAT IS FULL-MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION?
Full-mouth reconstruction can improve the appearance, health, and function of your gums, teeth, and jawbone for more efficient chewing, speaking, and a better-looking smile. This procedure at Contemporary Dental Health The Center for Advanced Dentistry may include (but is not limited to) inlays, crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and dentures. Some reconstruction steps may involve a gum or bone graft. Our team of experienced experts performs full-mouth restorations at our office in Lake Oswego, OR to improve your oral health and give you the confident smile you deserve. We’ll fully document your concerns and goals before creating your treatment program.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM FULL-MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION?
We’ll examine your gums, teeth, and jawbone, then create a full-mouth reconstruction plan based on the state of your teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular joints), facial muscles, and bite. We will discuss your therapy and sedation options, as well as what to expect during every step of the reconstruction process, to make sure they fit your needs before moving forward. Generally speaking, this process will require a few visits to Contemporary Dental Health The Center for Advanced Dentistry. We’ll schedule breaks in between each appointment to give you time to recover.
After each procedure, we’ll go over what to expect during recovery and how to prepare for the next step. We may give you a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication to be filled prior to your next treatment. You may feel discomfort or swelling after some procedures that make it hard to eat so we may recommend a liquid or soft food diet. Once your full-mouth reconstruction is finished, you should maintain your restored oral health with proper flossing and brushing. We’ll check your results during your regular dental exams and biannual cleanings at our Lake Oswego, OR office.
