Full Mouth Reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction describes the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. It involves more than one procedure for your mouth to improve both appearance and functionality. The reason why this treatment is called a full mouth reconstruction is that it usually includes more than one cosmetic dental procedure. These procedures can be anything from fillings, dental bridges, dental crowns, dental implants, tooth extractions, veneers and more. In addition to the procedures for the teeth, a full mouth reconstruction can also repair and restore your gums to ensure total oral health in all aspects.

The Initial Consultation to Design Your Full Mouth Reconstruction

Initially Dr. Crystal Dental will perform a detailed exam to see exactly what can be done to address your smile for full optimal health, function, and aesthetics that will last for years to come. X-rays will be taken to identify the bone structure and placement of each tooth in your smile. The x-rays will also determine if more complicated procedures might be needed to adjust or realign bone structure.


The procedures, healing times, and finances will also be discussed during this consultation. If you have any questions with any aspect of your plan, be sure to clarify these with us. Dental insurance might cover some of the procedures if it is beneficial for your dental health and functionality. This is a need versus want it question.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments

There are many procedure options available for a full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Crystal Dental will go over all options that will benefit your smile transformation goals. It is important to remember that we always have your oral health in mind as a top priority. Aesthetic treatments will be postponed if your teeth, gums, or bone tissue are unhealthy to begin with as it important to build on a solid foundation. These issues must be addressed prior to any aesthetic treatments.


  • Periodontal Care- If during the initial exam we found an advanced stage of gum disease, this would need to be treated immediately. Our recommendation will be to complete a deep cleaning, which includes root scaling and planning or a laser treatment. The plaque will be removed from the teeth under the gumline to remove the source of the infection. This is a solid foundational start. We might also consider gum contouring as part of the aesthetic reconstruction.
  • Bone Or Gum Grafting- A bone graft might be beneficial if you have left a missing tooth un-replaced and the jawbone has begun to atrophy. A bone graft is necessary if you are interested in replacing missing teeth with a dental implant. A dental implant needs enough jawbone structure to fuse properly and offer the stability and support.
  • Root Canal Therapy- A cavity can easily occur if you do not brush or floss your teeth properly and an infection has then developed inside a tooth’s pulp. This infection can also be from a crack or if there is damage to the tooth that has allowed bacteria into the tooth. A root canal will involve the removal of the infected pulp, and then usually a crown will be added for protection. This is the best way to keep the natural tooth in place to ensure the smile remains natural.
  • Dental Implants- A dental implant is the best tooth replacement solution today. It is the only option that allows you to replace a missing tooth permanently. A tiny titanium post will be surgically placed into your jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root. Then an extension or abutment and a dental crown will be added to sit on top of the gum line to replace the tooth. This allows you to have the function and look of a natural tooth, and it also preserves the jawbone integrity and density.
  • Dental Crowns- Crowns, acting like a cap, can be added on a tooth to improve your smile. If a tooth has a large restoration that cannot withstand the biting forces without the possibility of cracking, then a crown is recommended by Dr. Crystal Dental. A crown can also be used to restore the look of a damaged tooth.
  • Orthodontics- Braces are an appliance to correct misaligned teeth. While the treatment options for corrective braces have advanced over the years, metal brackets and wires are still a popular and successful option. Invisalign is growing in popularity by offering you a unique method to straighten teeth with clear plastic trays. There are benefits for straightening teeth beyond the aesthetics. Your teeth can be realigned which might also eliminate a traumatic bite, muscle pain, and jawbone deterioration.

Comprehensive Dentistry

Comprehensive dentistry with Dr. Crystal Schneider, involves the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the teeth, gums and jaw. She believes that preventive care is the most important aspect of comprehensive dentistry. Dr. Schneider aims to identify and treat problems while they’re still small, which can save you time, money and more extensive dental treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry
