Full mouth reconstruction | Enhance your smile and oral health

In a nutshell, the term “full mouth reconstruction” means restoring a whole lot of teeth. It involves a significant amount of thought and planning. The best part about having full mouth reconstruction done, is that it gives a skilled dentist complete freedom to change the appearance and function of your mouth for the better. A dentist will often perform this procedure all at once, however, sometimes a dentist feels more comfortable doing one jaw at a time.

In order to perform a full mouth reconstruction, your dentist needs to have the credentials to do so. A full mouth reconstruction requires a great deal of technical knowledge, more than what is taught in dental school.

Full mouth reconstruction requires a lot of time and co-ordination from dental technicians, oral surgeons, orthodontists, endodontists and periodontists to name but a few. Full mouth reconstruction is therefore the most expensive of all dental procedures. If it’s done wrong, full mouth reconstruction can cost almost double the initial amount to have it fixed. However, when it is done properly, it will enhance the function and aesthetics of an individual, leaving them with a beautiful smile and renewed confidence.

Once you have had the procedure done, the crowns, bridges, veneers and/or implants become a permanent part of you, and will function as your natural teeth. With proper oral health care – such as brushing and flossing twice daily – your new teeth will last you a lifetime.

Therefore, once you have decided that this procedure is for you, ensure that your dentists has experience and the qualifications to perform this type of restorative dentistry. Contact us for a dentist in Cape Town, who has a proven track record of performing full mouth reconstruction.
