Full Mouth Restoration

A full mouth restoration or reconstruction is a process, which is designed to restore functionality and improve aesthetics. This is a comprehensive solution, which is generally recommended for patients who have severely damaged teeth and a large number of gaps in both arches. A full mouth restoration/reconstruction is not the same as a smile makeover. While this treatment will undoubtedly achieve incredible cosmetic results, the main focus is using medical interventions to restore and protect the mouth and enhance both your oral and overall health. Your teeth have an array of essential functions, and without a healthy set of teeth, you may struggle to eat and speak clearly. Losing natural teeth can also affect your confidence and mental wellbeing.

Who can benefit from full mouth restoration?

An ideal candidate for full mouth restoration/reconstruction would be an individual with several missing teeth, significant periodontal issues, and/or a large number of damaged or decayed teeth. This procedure is not suitable for everyone, and Dr. Rinaldi and his team will use your consultation to determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment. Some people are born with conditions, for example, amelogenesis, dentinogenesis, and ectodermal dysplasia, which elevate the risk of losing teeth or developing extensive decay. Alternatively, trauma and dental injuries, bruxism (tooth grinding), and neglect can result in widespread damage. Often, patients who are suitable candidates experience unpleasant symptoms linked to a deterioration in oral health, including:

  • Headaches, jaw pain, and muscle aches
  • Tooth loss and decay
  • Worn, weak teeth
  • Broken and severely chipped teeth

What does the full mouth restoration treatment process entail?

Full mouth restoration is a high personalized treatment, planned meticulously by one of more of our clinicians, to ensure an improvement in your overall health. Every patient has unique conditions, wants, and needs, and your tailored treatment plan will take all three of these factors into account. The aim of this procedure is to use restorative services and oral treatments to address dental health issues and replace and repair teeth.

Planning is the most crucial element of this treatment. At your initial consultation, Dr. Rinaldi will conduct a thorough examination, using digital x-rays, intraoral and extraoral photographs, and visual observations to create your unique full mouth restoration plan. Dr. Rinaldi will review his observations and various treatment options to determine the ideal oral and overall health solution based on your requirements and preferences.

There are a variety of dental treatments that Dr. Rinaldi may use, in combination, to provide you with a strong, functional, healthy-looking smile. Each individual element of your full mouth restoration will dictate the time-frame and the types of procedures involved.

Dr. Rinaldi may recommend:

  • Porcelain Crowns: Porcelain crowns are the optimum standard to restore both severely fractured and decayed teeth.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants provide a natural-looking, long-term solution to replace one of more of your missing teeth.
  • Composite Bonding: This simple, quick procedure involves using tooth-colored bonding material to repair chips, smooth uneven edges, and reshape your teeth.
  • Inlays and onlays: Inlays and onlays are exceptional restorations, designed to strengthen your teeth when a basic filling will not suffice.
  • Composite Fillings: Fillings are placed inside caries (holes) caused by decay. Composite fillings provide a discreet, natural-looking aesthetic.
  • Root Canal Treatment: Root canal therapy is a procedure, which can help to save decayed, infected teeth when the pulp tissue is affected. By removing damaged pulp and cleaning and sealing the root canals, it’s possible to bolster the tooth and prevent further infection.
