What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction treatment — sometimes called restoration or rehabilitation — is a complex treatment that seeks to restore the function and aesthetic qualities of a patient’s mouth.

It can involve anything from using crowns to restore teeth to replacing multiple missing teeth and reshaping or reconstructing the bone and soft tissue. This process is usually very intensive and typically involves several different procedures that can even require the collaborative work of several specialists. A full mouth reconstruction can become necessary when the mouth structures have formed improperly or become severely damaged. This reconstructive procedure involves a holistic treatment plan that can address problems with oral structures, esthetics, and function relating to the:

  • Teeth
  • Gums
  • Bite
  • Joints
  • Bones
  • Muscles
  • Soft tissue

What Procedures are Involved In Full Mouth Reconstruction

Your full mouth reconstruction in St. Albert with Dr. Lesniak may involve several different procedures. Depending on the extent of the restoration needed, these can include:

  • Removal - extraction of decayed/damaged teeth and tissues
  • Implants - insertion of artificial (usually made of titanium) "roots" into the bone to serve as anchors for dental prosthetics
  • Veneers - thin coverings of existing teeth to protect or improve appearance; can cover the entire tooth or just one face (inlays or onlays)
  • Crowns - a protective cover of an entire tooth; usually requires reshaping of the damaged tooth; can include a whole artificial tooth affixed to an implant
  • Bridges - replaces multiple missing teeth with artificial teeth anchored to existing teeth or an implants
  • Dentures - fixed or removable prosthetic replacing multiple teeth and gums; can be full or partial
  • Fixed or removable implant dentures

Why Should I Choose a Prosthodontist?

A regular dentist is educated in a broad range of oral health subjects and is usually a reliable source of general dental care and maintenance.

However, prosthodontists are highly specialized. They view your mouth from a bigger picture standpoint, going beyond local problems with a mindset of reconstruction to improve overall function and form. With this training, a prosthodontist like Dr. Lesniak is better suited for the extensive nature of full mouth reconstruction. St. Albert patients can rest assured that they will receive the highest level of care and attention to detail with Dr. Lesniak.
