Do you suffer from serious dental issues that affect not only your ability to chew and speak comfortably, but also your confidence? For his patients that require more extensive dental work in order to preserve the health and appearance of their smile, Dr. Dean E. Kois combines any number of cosmetic and/or restorative dentistry services for a full mouth reconstruction in Seattle and South Lake Union. This treatment is customized to meet the needs of each individual patient — the results are often life-changing for the patient, who gets to enjoy (sometimes for the first time) a restored smile that is both healthy and attractive.
What Issues Does a Full Mouth Reconstruction Address?
Dr. Kois typically recommends a full mouth reconstruction for patients who have multiple oral health problems affecting their teeth, mouth, gums and/or jaw. These problems often include a combination of two or more of these issues:
- Missing teeth (from decay or trauma)
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Severe tooth decay
- Misaligned teeth
- Teeth that have been eroded due to acid or grinding
- Gum disease / receding gums
- Badly discolored teeth
- An irregular bite (malocclusion)
- TMJ and other jaw problems
- Congenital dental deformities
What Can a Full Mouth Reconstruction Include?
As a highly customized treatment for several dental issues, a full mouth reconstruction may include any combination of cosmetic and/or restorative procedures, including:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Full or partial dentures
- Porcelain veneers
- Gum treatment
- Teeth whitening
- Jaw surgery
- Facial plastic surgery
What are the Benefits of a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Here are just some of the benefits that you can expect from a full mouth reconstruction:
- Beautiful, gap-free smile
- Improved tooth and gum health
- Restored ability to chew, talk and smile without discomfort or embarrassment
- No more jaw pain due to an imbalanced bite
- Brighter teeth — no more stains or discoloration
- More self-confidence — instead of hiding your smile, you’ll want to show it off!
What Does the Full Mouth Reconstruction Process Involve?
Dr. Kois will provide a thorough dental exam and consider your medical and dental history before recommending a full mouth reconstruction. If he finds that you are a good candidate, he will take X-rays, photographs and an impression of your teeth in order to plan your treatment.
Since a full mouth reconstruction is used to treat multiple and/or extensive dental problems, the treatment process typically involves multiple office visits and procedures over the course of several weeks or months. The time between procedures is necessary so that your teeth and/or gums have time to recover.
