A Solution For Multiple Oral Health Problems
Oral health conditions are common, but no two cases are the same. Where some patients may only require a single procedure to correct their issues, another patient may need multiple procedures before they can enjoy a full, healthy smile. When you’re dealing with multiple oral health issues, one of our dentists, Dr. Ramirez or Dr. Johnson can draft an effective treatment plan to help you reach your vision of a whole, healthy smile through full mouth restoration.
What Is Full Mouth Restoration?
Full mouth restoration, also called full mouth reconstruction, refers to the correction of multiple oral health issues, including rebuilding, or replacing all of the teeth in your mouth. Unlike smile design which is focused first and foremost on aesthetics, full mouth restoration is performed to correct oral health issues, alleviate their symptoms, and improve the look of your teeth. To enhance the health of your smile, your restoration may involve:
- Jaw surgery
- Gum treatment
- Dental implants
- Deep cleanings
- Orthodontics to correct bite
- A number of additional corrective services & procedures
Who Is A Candidate For Full Mouth Restoration?
You may be a good candidate for restoration if you’re dealing with a combination of any of the following issues:
- Recurrent headaches
- Tooth loss
- Ill-fitting restorations
- Severely worn teeth
- Sore or aching jaw muscles
If you’re dealing with any of these issues or any other health issues, contact our San Luis Obispo office at (805) 549-8483 to schedule your appointment today.
The Full Mouth Restoration Process
Before either of our dentists can approve you as a candidate for restoration, you’ll attend an initial consultation. During your consultation your dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth using methods such as hand tools, photographs, impressions, and X-rays to identify each of your problems. They’ll also thoroughly review your medical history and ask you about what you’re hoping to accomplish with your treatment.
Your Full Mouth Restoration Treatment Plan
Once both you and your dentist have decided that restoration is the right option for you, your dentist will develop a treatment plan based on your oral health and review the procedures involved with you. Your dentist will work with you, giving you specific instructions regarding your treatment and plan your appointments around your schedule. Once you understand your treatment plan, we’ll schedule you for your next appointment.
Your treatments will vary based on your unique oral health needs. Expect to return for multiple appointments over the span of months. Your dentist will give you a more accurate time frame.
Frequently Asked Questions
The exact cost of your restoration will depend on several factors such as which treatments you require and your insurance. Be sure to call your provider beforehand and ask them which costs they can cover. To help you afford your treatment, we also offer new patient specials and financing through CareCredit.
Full mouth restoration usually takes upwards of a year, although this time frame will vary based on the context of your specific case including your current state of oral health, your availability, the treatments you require, etc. Your dentist will provide a more specific time frame based on the context of your case.
