Full Mouth Reconstruction: Comprehensively Restore Your Smile
If you have found that a single procedure cannot adequately address all of your restorative needs, we can combine multiple procedures into a comprehensive full mouth reconstruction treatment plan to renew the strength, appearance, and function of your smile. Your full mouth reconstruction will be carefully planned and performed at our Tupelo, MS, practice by Dr. Caron or Dr. Kenney. To schedule a consultation with Drs. Caron or Kenney and learn more, contact our practice today.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Candidates
To determine if full mouth reconstruction is right for you, we will examine your smile and discuss your concerns. Full mouth reconstruction is intended for patients with a large number of missing teeth or widespread dental damage. If you have any pressing oral health issues such as gum disease or a tooth infection, these will need to be addressed first before you can begin full mouth reconstruction.
Planning Your Full Mouth Reconstruction
Each full mouth reconstruction is personalized based on the unique needs and goals of the individual patient. Depending on what you hope to achieve, your full mouth reconstruction can include:
If you have minor decay, we can remove it with minimally invasive methods and then use dental fillings to restore the strength of your teeth. Rather than using traditional metal fillings, which can be highly noticeable, our doctors utilize fillings made of an incredibly discreet tooth-colored composite material.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are custom restorations that are used to repair more significant damage than dental fillings. An inlay covers the biting surfaces of a tooth, whereas an onlay extends beyond the pointed cusps and down the sides of a tooth.
A dental crown is a custom cap that is used to renew the appearance and function of a chipped, cracked, or badly decayed tooth. Since we have an advanced CEREC® (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics) machine here at our practice, we may be able to complete your crowning treatment during a single visit.
Full mouth reconstruction is intended for patients with a large number of missing teeth or widespread dental damage.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants offer the best way to help restore your smile. Implants are small metal posts that are surgically placed in the jaw, where they fuse with the surrounding bone to function like artificial tooth roots. Once healed, they can provide a lifetime of unmatched support for dental crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Used to replace up to three consecutive teeth, dental bridges are custom restorations made of multiple artificial teeth that have been fused together. Traditional bridges are held in place by dental crowns on each end. If you are seeking the most stable type of bridge available, we may be able to secure your restoration with dental implants.
A partial denture is used to replace several teeth, while a complete denture is used to replace a full arch. We offer traditional dentures, which rely on suction, clasps, or adhesives to stay in place, as well as implant-supported dentures that offer incredible stability.
Once you and Drs. Caron or Kenney have selected two or more of these procedures for your full mouth reconstruction, treatments will be carefully staged to minimize office visits, recovery times, and costs.
