If your smile is compromised by multiple oral health concerns, you need a comprehensive treatment plan to improve its health, function, and appearance. A full mouth reconstruction can combine procedures from restorative, cosmetic, and implant dentistry for transformative results. At Bivens Dentistry in Mt. Juliet, TN, Dr. Shaun Bivens utilizes advanced dental technology to provide personalized full mouth reconstructions. With over a decade of experience, Dr. Bivens is committed to finding the most conservative treatment options to restore the health and wellness of your smile.
Creating Your Customized Reconstruction Plan
During your initial consultation, we will take digital photographs of your smile. Then Dr. Bivens will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health to determine which areas need attention.
Good candidates for this type of treatment have multiple oral health concerns which affect most or all of the teeth and supporting structures. If you require oral surgery, you will need to be healthy enough to receive anesthesia or sedation.
Performed by an experienced dentist, full mouth reconstructions offer a range of aesthetic, oral health, and functional benefits.
Before recommending any treatments, Dr. Bivens will also sit down with you to discuss your concerns and your budget. Based on this information, he can design a treatment plan uniquely suited to your needs. To help you make an informed decision, we can load your photos into our smile design software and show you a mock-up of your expected results.
Your Treatment Options
Depending on the state of your oral health and goals, your treatment plan may include several procedures or only one or two. Full mouth reconstructions often include:
- Dental implants
- Restorations, such as crowns, bridges, fillings, inlays, or onlays
- Orthodontics, such as braces or Invisalign®
- Oral surgery
- Periodontal treatment, such as scaling and root planing
- Treatment for clenching or grinding
- TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder therapy
You might also choose to include cosmetic procedures to enhance the appearance as well as the health of your smile. Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or gum contouring may be recommended to add a finishing touch.
Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
When performed by an experienced dentist, full mouth reconstructions offer a range of aesthetic, oral health, and functional benefits. By creating a comprehensive plan rather than treating issues separately, Dr. Bivens can ensure your treatments achieve optimal results. In some cases, the order of certain treatments can affect their success. For example, placing a dental implant before undergoing treatment for gum disease can create issues in the future.
