Full Mouth Reconstruction Q & A

Deidra Kokel, DDS

What is full-mouth reconstruction?

Full-mouth reconstruction uses restorative dentistry techniques to rejuvenate your teeth when multiple oral health issues, like missing or broken teeth, affect your entire mouth. Modern dental technology provides a number of restorative options that look and feel like healthy, natural teeth.

At your consultation, Dr. Kokel assesses your oral health and dental history. Next, she consults with you to develop a treatment plan that matches your needs and goals.

Full-mouth reconstruction can have dramatically positive effects on your health, confidence, and overall quality of life, for example, by improving your smile and helping you speak and chew food normally again.

Am I a good candidate for full-mouth reconstruction?

Full-mouth reconstruction may be your best option if you’ve lost many teeth or have several worn-down teeth or old dental work you would like to replace.

Full-mouth reconstruction can help you achieve any combination of the following oral health goals:

  • Improve the overall appearance of teeth
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Filling gaps between teeth
  • Protect teeth in danger of falling out
  • Replace old dental work with modern options
  • Restore everyday functions, such as speech and eating

Dr. Kokel customizes your full mouth reconstruction to fit your needs, including whether you’ve lost or worn down your teeth due to decay, trauma, injury, or disease. She’s experienced in treating complex cases that call for multiple treatment approaches.

What procedures does a full-mouth reconstruction involve?

Dr. Kokel has several restorative dentistry options available. She draws on her background in cosmetic dentistry when performing restorative work and may change or combine procedures depending on your case. These options include:

Implants

An implant is a metal post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. After installing the implant, Dr. Kokel fits you with a prosthetic replacement tooth.

Crowns

A crown is a cap placed over a damaged tooth. The result looks and functions like a natural tooth.

Bridges

A dental bridge uses the teeth surrounding a missing tooth to support an artificial tooth, “bridging” the gap. When multiple teeth next to each other are missing, Dr. Kokel can install bridges using implants for support.
