Many people looking into full mouth reconstruction, also known as full mouth restoration, get the impression that it’s an extensive procedure that could take weeks or months, not to mention multiple costly visits to your cosmetic dentist. But that’s not necessarily the case. The truth is, depending on how extensive the damage to your teeth, you could have a full mouth reconstruction procedure and dental implants in a day.
Low-impact full mouth reconstruction
For example, if your dental damage is minimal — where your bite and jaw position are normal and functional and there is no bone loss or infection in your gums — you are a good candidate for low-impact full mouth reconstruction. With this one-day procedure, your broken and damaged teeth are removed and replaced with dental implants inserted into the bone in each socket. Once your new dental implants are in place, crowns or bridges are applied to recreate your healthy mouth. In fact, since your dental implants are molded specifically to your mouth, function and appearance are not just restored, they are usually improved.
In order to speed up the process and ensure that your low-impact full mouth reconstruction only takes a single day, your dentist must perform extensive pre-planning required before your surgery. This planning period usually includes X-Rays, dental impressions and a CT scan.
With low-impact full mouth reconstructions, your recovery time is often as short as a few weeks and downtime is minimal; in many cases you can return to work the same day.
After the procedure, you should care of your reconstructed mouth the same way as your normal teeth:
- Brushing and flossing daily
- Visiting your dentist as many times as necessary to maintain your oral health
- Be sure to ask your dentist about any additional recommended care considerations
Once you’ve fully recovered, you should have a mouth full of dental implants that look, feel and function better than your original teeth; restored to their optimal shade, shape, length and position. Plus, with the right care, your new dental implants will last a lifetime.
With low-impact full mouth reconstruction, there’s no reason to walk out of your dentist’s office feeling embarrassed or fearful. Since the entire procedure is taken care of in a single day, you don’t have to worry about living with gaps, missing teeth or temporary dentures.
