Am I a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Many people wake up every day ready to brush and care for their teeth, only to experience another issue with their oral health. Multiple chipped, cracked, or missing teeth, as well as teeth with improper alignment or other issues, might have created so many difficulties that you feel like extracting all of your teeth is your only option. Thankfully, full mouth reconstruction could be exactly what you’re looking for. 

At the Dental Office of Dr. Igor Babenkov, D.D.S., Dr. Babenkov, as well as the rest of our team, work hard to make sure every patient is thoroughly satisfied with their smile, both aesthetically and healthwise. If you have multiple issues with your teeth, a full mouth reconstruction could be the right choice for you. 

What is a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction sounds like an intense process. Fortunately, this reconstructive treatment can include a series of smaller treatments, such as filling and crown replacements, teeth whitening, dental implants, and veneers so when done in increments it doesn’t feel so intimidating. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, this is sometimes called a smile makeover and can involve treatments that are both cosmetic and health-related. 

The first step involves consulting with Dr. Babenkov and discussing your needs for your smile. Afterward, Dr. Babenkov will put together a plan for your full mouth reconstruction, and once agreed upon, reconstruction can begin. 

Good candidates for a full mouth reconstruction

Still, you might be wondering who is a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. We like to say, anyone who has multiple dental issues, including both cosmetic and health-related ones, could be a good candidate for this procedure. If you have one of the conditions below, you will most likely be a great candidate for this procedure: 

Those who experience any of these conditions could benefit from a full mouth restoration, specifically because they can all lead to severe dental problems that affect all parts of the mouth. In the past, these severe dental problems were only treatable with dentures, but fortunately, due to the changes in dental technology, there are several options to create the healthy and attractive smile of your dreams. 

Bad candidates for a full mouth reconstruction

In most cases, most people are good candidates for full mouth reconstruction. Still,  some individuals are not. This includes people who smoke. Smoking causes damage and inflammation in the mouth, putting reconstruction procedures at risk of failure. In addition, those who suffer from an autoimmune disorder or heart disease may need to discuss the procedure with Dr. Babenkov at length to make sure it is safe before full mouth reconstruction can begin.
