What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction (also referred to as a “full mouth restoration”) is a combination procedure that can include restorative treatments to enhance functionality and oral health, cosmetic procedures to improve aesthetic quality, or both. It can address as many or as few issues as necessary to provide the best possible results. Our dentist will thoroughly discuss the optimal course of action at your initial consultation. During this meeting, our doctor will identify each issue and determine which treatments are required to meet your needs. No matter the combination, the ultimate goal is to provide effective treatment for a range of dental or periodontal issues that may be compromising the health, function, and aesthetics of your smile.
What Are the Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Because a full mouth reconstruction can address multiple issues, the potential benefits of this procedure are numerous. Depending on individual needs, some of the major concerns that can be treated in a full mouth reconstruction include:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Missing teeth
- Gaps and spaces between the teeth
- Stains and discoloration
- Gingivitis or periodontal disease
- Severe decay and/or damage to tooth structure

Am I a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Candidates for a full mouth reconstruction are individuals who need or desire treatment for several different types of dental concerns. It is important to note that individuals may be eligible for one procedure but not another depending on their candidacy for specific treatment selections. The severity of certain symptoms may adjust the priority of concerns treated, which may mean that functional concerns are addressed before aesthetic issues. Our dentist will talk with you about all of your needs and make treatment recommendations that can provide the best possible results.
In addition, patients who require oral surgery may be advised against immediately undergoing some types of procedures if they suffer from certain medical conditions or are currently on certain medications that may increase risks. In any case, our dentist will consider your safety, medical history, and ultimate goals while you work together to develop a treatment plan.

How Much Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Cost?
