What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction, commonly referred to as a smile makeover, is rebuilding or replacing each essential part of the patient’s mouth to produce the ideal smile. The steps required depend on your needs and how you want your teeth to look. Onlays, crowns, dental implants, veneers, and dentures are a few of these operations. Your mouth’s teeth will be impacted by a complete mouth reconstruction treatment, either directly or indirectly. In addition to improving your appearance, this will partially enhance your ability to eat, speak, and smile.

Am I a Good Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

For a complete mouth restoration, candidates must be in good health because it requires extensive surgery. Would you benefit from a smile makeover? Let’s categorize it according to the kind of complete mouth reconstruction.

Full Mouth Reconstruction with Crowns

  • Do you have a misaligned smile? Instead of undergoing a full mouth renovation, you could require braces.
  • Do you have healthy teeth? You could only require fillings or crowns. If your teeth are in decent shape, cosmetic dental procedures like crowns, veneers, fillings, or teeth whitening can restore your smile.

Full Mouth Reconstruction with Dental Implants

  • Have you had adequate bone mass? To give the best support and securely hold the dental implants in place, you should have sufficient bone volume. If you’ve had an extensive periodontal disease or have been missing teeth for a significant amount of time, you might not be a good candidate for a complete mouth reconstruction using dental implants.
  • Do you have osteoporosis? Getting dental implants may be impossible when you have osteoporosis. Any bone abnormalities you may have should be disclosed to your dentist so they can determine if you would be a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction with dental implants.
  • Do you smoke a lot? Smoking promotes postoperative infections and complications.
  • Do you suffer from an untreated systemic illness? You may not have dental implants if you have diabetes, hypertension, or bleeding issues.

You must first receive your implant surgeon’s approval to use dental implants for a full mouth reconstruction. Let your dentist know If you have systemic conditions that prohibit you from receiving a full mouth reconstruction.

How Long Will Full Mouth Rehabilitation Take?

The patient’s particular demands will determine the extent of the full mouth rehabilitation. Depending on the procedures involved, a smile makeover can often take anywhere from a few months to more than two years.

What are the Types of Full Mouth Restorations?

A full Mouth reconstruction breaks down into two types.

Restore Existing Teeth

To preserve the original teeth as much as possible, the dentist will employ a range of treatments. Utilizing these is required for this.

  • Fillings to repair cavities and decay.
  • Crowns on (almost) every tooth.
  • Dental bridges or implants can replace all lost teeth or only a few individual teeth.
  • Root canal therapy prevents the further deterioration of severely decayed teeth.

Full Mouth Implant Restoration

The teeth are extracted by the dentist and replaced with full mouth teeth implants. To learn more about the various full mouth dental implant kinds, continue reading.

  • All-on-4 that uses 4 implants on each jaw.
  • Fixed bridge implants with 4-8 implants per jaw.
  • Overdentures with 4-6 implants per jaw.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation Cost

Dental implants generally cost between $7,000 and $90,000 for complete mouth rehabilitation. The typical price is $34,000. On the other hand, a full mouth reconstruction with crowns might differ based on the material utilized and your insurance coverage. A crown might cost anywhere from $500 and $2,500 in total.

Should I choose Fixed Teeth or Removable Teeth?

Your selection will determine whether you get fixed or removable teeth. Each kind has benefits and drawbacks. Permanent teeth are ideal if you don’t like to be seen without teeth.  Removable teeth are an excellent option if you value convenience.

What procedures might be needed to restore multiple teeth?

Snap-On Full Mouth Implants

Overdentures often referred to as snap-on full mouth dental implants, are dental prostheses that may be removed by the wearer and are attached to the implants with a snap.

Pros of Snap-On Full Mouth Dental Implants

  • Cheaper than fixed options
  • Lighter materials provide a cushion and don’t contribute as much to bone loss.
  • Easier maintenance

Cons of Snap-On Full Mouth Dental Implants

  • You can only taste foods well if the components are thicker.
  • Compared to fixed choices, the materials could be more durable.

Fixed Bridge Restorations

For the upper and lower jaws, fixed bridge restorations are fixed to 4–8 implants permanently. The fixed hybrid bridge, fixed zirconia bridge, and All-on-4 are examples of fixed bridge restorations.

Pros of Fixed Bridge Restorations

  • The support is sturdier when eating.
  • The flavor is enhanced since the materials are thinner.
  • The materials are longer-lasting.

Cons of Fixed Bridge Restorations

  • The cost of fixed bridge restorations is higher than other restorative procedures.
  • Fixed bridge restorations are hard to clean.

Teeth Shape, size, and color considerations

Shape and Size

Would you want to have longer or shorter teeth than you now have? Do you like teeth that are square or rounded? Because you’ll wear them for the rest of your life, give some thought to the size and form of your teeth. Ensure that the appearance of your smile is precisely what you desire. Your dentist will provide a suggestion, but it is ultimately your call.  Bring a reference picture when you want to keep your current teeth or believe someone else’s teeth would look well on you. You provide them with a starting point, and your dentist will provide the greatest outcomes.


Most people seldom give the color of their teeth during full mouth restoration any thought. They don’t have to maintain their current tooth color. They have the option to forego getting unnaturally white teeth. You may select the precise shade of white you desire for your teeth when you receive a smile makeover.

Each dentist has several color swatches on hand. Please look at the color samples to choose the hue you like. The ideal way to view color is in neutral lighting since artificial lighting can hide the real hue, which may lead to surprising results.

What issues does Full Mouth Reconstruction take care of?

  • Amelogenesis – This is an uncommon condition that can lead to tooth decay and damaged enamel. A missing or non-functioning enamel is the primary sign. Patients who have this illness may also have gum disease, broken teeth, and rapid tooth decay. One of the greatest methods to manage this disease’s problems is with a full mouth reconstruction.
  • Dentogenesis imperfecta – This condition can cause the teeth to seem discolored, frequently turning blue-gray or yellow-brown.
  • Ectodermal dysplasia – This entails the abnormal growth of teeth, skin, or hair. Some people with this illness may suffer tooth loss or damaged tooth enamel. People can treat some of the problems associated with this disease with full mouth reconstruction.
  • Malocclusion – The misalignment of the jaws, or malocclusion, can cause discomfort. Dental implants and bone grafting will be used in full mouth rehabilitation to strengthen jaws and relieve discomfort.
  • Oral Cancer – A cancer cell not treated may spread to other body parts and become lethal. Symptoms of oral cancer include lumps or sores in the mouth. An oncologist must treat oral cancer; however, when the cancerous cell has been eliminated, a full mouth reconstruction can aid in regaining the mouth’s full health.

What is the recovery process for Full Mouth Rehabilitation?

After the surgery is over, you must rest before receiving more care. Your dentist may recommend antibiotics or painkillers to speed up your recovery. It is usually advised to have soft foods or meals to sip until you feel completely better. Following a full mouth reconstruction, maintaining good oral hygiene, including twice-daily tooth brushing and frequent flossing, is crucial. Additionally crucial are routine dental cleanings and examinations.

What are the Risks associated with Complete mouth rehabilitation?

Each technique carries some risk. The dangers of multiple separate treatments might apply to a surgery as sophisticated as complete mouth reconstruction.

Risks of Full Mouth Crown Restorations

  • Gum recession
  • Crowns can fail or crack.
  • Crowns could not be adequately sealed, which could lead to rot beneath.
  • Root canal therapy may be necessary for some of your teeth.
  • When fitting crowns, your dentist could have done a better job, which could lead to an unbalanced bite. This may result in TMJ issues, a higher risk of gum disease, and bruxism.

Risks of Full Mouth Implant Restorations

  • Short-term loss of dental implants
  • Long-term loss of teeth implants
  • Damage to the nerves within the jawbone.
  • Possible infection from surgery
  • Sinus perforation of the tooth implants
  • When one implant fails in an all-on-four procedure, the remaining implants must be replaced.
  • Incorrect bite after placing the artificial teeth.

Find a dentist that provides a brief guarantee on their services if you want the greatest outcomes. Regularly check your dentist, and be honest with them about the hazards.

What are the Alternatives to a Complete Mouth Reconstruction?

  • Dentures – Dentures can treat patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. The procedure comprises customized prosthetic gums and teeth matching the patient’s mouth. With dentures problems like speaking and eating can be remedied with dentures. They also improve the appearance of a patient’s smile.
  • Bridges – A dental bridge is a suitable alternative for people who have numerous consecutively missing teeth. A tooth bridge repairs the gap using prosthetic teeth affixed to the adjoining teeth. This restoration aids in the patient’s bite adjustment and inhibits tooth movement.
  • Veneers – Dental veneers are small, tooth-colored shells affixed to the tooth’s surface using a bonding agent. Extreme tooth discoloration and chipped, gapped, and crooked teeth can all be corrected using dental veneers. The grin will appear nicer with the aid of this operation since it will be whiter and more straight.
  • Inlays and Onlays – Inlays and onlays are two restorative treatments used when a tooth is too extensively damaged for a conventional filling but does not require a crown. Inlays fill the area between the tooth’s cusps, whereas onlays cover the cusp. Both treatments assist in preserving the bulk of the native tooth by preventing shrinkage and loosening as conventional fillings may.
