A full mouth reconstruction or a full mouth rehabilitation is a series of several restoratives, orthodontic, endodontic, and oral surgery procedures that help to restore and rebuild both the upper and lower arches of the jaws for a fuller smile.
What does a full mouth reconstruction involve?
A full mouth reconstruction typically involves a combination of several dental procedures to modify and correct dental anomalies. It incorporates the efforts of restorative dentists (who perform procedures such as crowns, bridges, veneers, etc.), periodontists (who specialize in gum therapy), oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists (who specialize in areas related to the alignment of the teeth), and endodontists (who specialize in root canal).
Who is the perfect candidate for a full mouth reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is typically suggested for patients who suffer from the below conditions:
- Teeth suffering from severe decay
- Teeth damaged due to injury or external fracture
- Teeth that have undergone severe damage due to prolonged teeth grinding
- Gum diseases
- Misalignment issues
- Discolored teeth
Patients experiencing pain in the jaw, head, or the surrounding muscles may require bite adjustments
What is the treatment involved in a full mouth reconstruction?
We understand that every case is unique, and hence, we take extra effort to study your case to carry out a proper diagnosis. A full mouth reconstruction may involve the following treatment.
- Deep teeth cleaning
- Crown lengthening
- Orthognathic surgery
- Gum Grafting
- Placement of temporary restorations

How is a full mouth reconstruction different from a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a procedure that a patient may receive upon request, but a full mouth reconstruction is a corrective dental procedure that is recommended by the dentist to improve the oral health of the patient.
