What Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Do for You
Full mouth reconstruction is a procedure to restore badly damaged and worn teeth. It can help if your teeth are:
- Barely functional or nonfunctional
A full-mouth reconstruction can help straighten and brighten your teeth. It can provide protective dental crowns over chipped and cracked teeth or to help build up worn teeth.
If your teeth are painful, Dr. Siegel will evaluate their health and determine whether they just need a crown, root canal therapy, or might need to be extracted.
Restoring your damaged teeth will give you a beautiful smile and a functional one. You will be better able to bite and chew with your new teeth than with your old ones.
Why People Seek Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction helps people who have badly damaged teeth. Thigh might be due to many potential causes, including:
- Injury or accident
- Unbalanced bite / TMJ
- Health conditions
- Eating disorders
- Genetic or developmental conditions
- Poor maintenance
Many different types of injury accidents can harm your teeth. The most common are car accidents and sporting accidents. However, sometimes people have damaged teeth because they are victims of violence.
An unbalanced bite can lead to your teeth experiencing imbalance or extreme bite forces. You might clench and grind your teeth on a daily basis, or bite down with uneven force, causing your teeth to wear down, chip, or crack. If you have TMJ, you likely have a number of related symptoms, such as recurring headaches. Fortunately, full mouth reconstruction can treat your bite problems and reduce or eliminate TMJ symptoms.
Some health conditions, such as diabetes, can put your teeth at risk, leading to poor oral health. Eating disorders like bulimia nervosa can also damage your teeth through unhealthy eating and purging behaviors. Other times, your teeth might be vulnerable to damage because of genetic or developmental conditions.
Finally, if you don’t take proper care of your teeth, they can be damaged and might need to be repaired.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full-mouth reconstruction is a custom combination of procedures designed exclusively for you by Dr. Siegel.

If all or most of your teeth can be saved, Dr. Siegel will construct a detailed plan. To make his plan, Dr. Siegel will use x-rays and detailed digital scans to understand how best to rebuild your smile. Then he will recommend a plan that might include:
Then the plan will be put into motion, with the exact sequence of treatments designed to maximize their effectiveness and fit in with your personal restrictions like schedule and budget.
The process typically takes 3-6 months to complete.
