What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedure?
A full-mouth reconstruction is a multistep mouth restoration process that involves multiple dental procedures to drastically improve the look and function of the patient’s jaw and teeth. The overall procedure can include dental crowns, dental bridges, veneers, and more. A full mouth reconstruction not only improves the look and function of your teeth but also helps repair and maintain your gums.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Steps
The first step in restoring your smile is a consultation with our experienced dental team to assess your oral health, including photos, X-rays, impressions, or digital scans as part of the consultation.
➁ Treatment Plan
After the consultation, we discuss your treatment options with you, including a mock-up or digital rendering of your smile after treatment.
➂ Removal Of Decay
Our dental team will address any decay that hasn’t been treated. If left untreated, existing decay in natural teeth can threaten the stability and longevity of your reconstruction.
Treatments for tooth decay include:
- Fillings to repair cavities
- Root canal therapy for teeth with infected soft tissue
- Tooth extractions
- Oral surgery, if necessary
➃ Periodontal Disease Treatment
Scaling, and treating periodontal pockets is an essential step in full mouth reconstruction. Unhealthy gums can pull away from natural teeth and dental implants, causing loose teeth. And ultimately. tooth loss.
➄ Digital CAD/CAM Imaging
Our team will take digital scans of your teeth so that crowns, implants, inlays, and onlays can be designed with your healthier mouth as the basis for the design.

I am so happy I switched Dentist Offices. The high tech and thorough care at Midtown Dentists is exemplary! The staff were very pleasant and they had all the safety guards in place for Covid. Dr. Crippen was fantastic in explaining the 3D visual on the screen of my teeth, sinuses, bones and dental needs. Denise was a fantastic hygienist and was careful around any sensitive areas too! I highly recommend this office for all your dental needs! Thank you!
