Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction involves comprehensive dental treatments to rebuild and restore all teeth in the upper and lower jaws. This extensive process can include a combination of procedures such as crowns, bridges, veneers, dental implants, and orthodontics to address functional issues like bite alignment and oral health problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. The benefits of full mouth reconstruction are substantial, offering improved oral function, enhanced aesthetics, and significant relief from pain or discomfort caused by damaged or missing teeth. Additionally, it can lead to better overall health by addressing underlying dental issues that could affect systemic health, ultimately enhancing the patient's quality of life and confidence in their smile. 

The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process 

  • During the first visit, our dentist in Hagerstown, MD, will comprehensively examine your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite. This may include X-rays, photographs, and impressions of your teeth to gather all necessary information. 
  • Based on the examination, our dentist at Associated Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. This plan will outline the procedures required, the timeline for treatment, and the estimated cost. 
  • Before starting the reconstruction, any necessary preliminary treatments, such as periodontal therapy or extractions, will be performed to ensure a healthy foundation for the restorative work. 
  • The core phase of the reconstruction involves performing the restorative and cosmetic procedures outlined in your treatment plan. This may be done in stages, with each visit focusing on specific areas of the mouth. 
  • After the reconstruction is completed, regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure the longevity of the results. Maintenance treatments such as professional cleanings and check-ups will help keep your new smile healthy and beautiful. 

Types of Full Mouth Reconstruction

Dental Crowns 

Dental crowns are caps placed over damaged or decayed teeth to restore their shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are typically used for teeth that have undergone root canal therapy, have large fillings, or are cracked or broken. 


Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are anchored by crowns on adjacent teeth or implants and consist of one or more artificial teeth to fill the gap. 

Dental Implants 

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth roots. Once integrated with the bone, they provide a stable foundation for crowns, bridges, or dentures. 


Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that cover the front surfaces of teeth to improve their appearance. They correct issues such as discoloration, chips, or minor misalignments. 

Teeth Whitening 

Professional teeth whitening treatments can significantly lighten the color of your teeth, providing a brighter, more youthful smile. This treatment can be performed in-office or with take-home kits provided by your dentist. 

Cosmetic Bonding 

Composite bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin to the teeth to repair chips, cracks, or gaps. It is a quick and minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of your smile. 

The Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction 

Improved Chewing and Speaking 

One of the primary benefits of full mouth reconstruction is the restoration of proper oral function. Dental problems such as missing teeth, severely worn teeth, and bite misalignment can make it difficult to chew food properly and speak clearly. By addressing these issues, full mouth reconstruction restores your ability to comfortably chew a variety of foods and articulate words more clearly. This enhances your eating experience and improves your overall nutrition and communication skills. 

Correction of Bite Alignment 

Malocclusion, or improper bite alignment, can lead to numerous problems, including jaw pain, headaches, and uneven tooth wear. Full mouth reconstruction in Frederick, MD, often involves orthodontic treatments or occlusal adjustments to correct bite alignment. This ensures that your teeth meet correctly when you bite down, distributing chewing forces evenly across all teeth and preventing future dental issues. 

Restored Smile Appearance 

Full mouth reconstruction involves various cosmetic procedures, such as veneers, crowns, and dental implants, that significantly enhance the appearance of teeth. These treatments can correct discoloration, chips, cracks, and gaps, resulting in a brighter, more attractive smile. A beautiful smile can boost self-confidence and positively impact social and professional interactions. 

Youthful Facial Structure 

Missing teeth and severe tooth wear can cause your facial structure to change, leading to a sunken or aged appearance. By restoring lost teeth and rebuilding the tooth structure, full mouth reconstruction helps to support the facial muscles, maintaining a more youthful and vibrant look. 

Alleviation of Chronic Pain 

Dental issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can cause significant pain and discomfort. Full mouth reconstruction addresses these underlying problems, providing relief from chronic pain. For instance, treating cavities and gum disease reduces tooth sensitivity and gum irritation, while correcting bite alignment can alleviate TMJ pain and associated headaches. Contact us today! 

Comprehensive Treatment of Dental Issues 

Full mouth reconstruction provides a comprehensive solution for multiple dental problems. Addressing all coordinated issues ensures no problem is left untreated, promoting overall oral health. Treatments for cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues prevent further decay and deterioration, reducing the risk of future dental complications. 

Connection Between Oral Health and Systemic Health 

Poor oral health has been linked to various systemic health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections. Improving your oral health through full mouth reconstruction can also positively impact your overall health. Treating gum disease, for example, reduces inflammation and bacterial load, lowering the risk of systemic conditions associated with chronic inflammation.
