Full-Mouth Reconstruction Overview
A full-mouth reconstruction can improve the health, function, and appearance of your teeth, gums, and jaw for more efficient chewing, biting, speech, and a better-looking smile. Full-mouth reconstruction at Bass River Dental can include (but is not limited to) onlays, inlays, crowns, bridges, veneers, implants, and dentures. Some full-mouth reconstruction procedures may also expect a bone or gum graft. As a skilled dentist Dr. Peter Russo performs full-mouth restoration at our office in South Yarmouth, MA that can help to rejuvenate both the health of your mouth and the appearance of your smile. We will listen to your concerns and needs before creating your unique full-mouth restoration treatment plan.

Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Full-mouth reconstruction may be needed if you have lost a few teeth or have several teeth with big fillings that are ready for replacement. You may also have teeth with significant decay or teeth that are broken, cracked, or severely worn down due to bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). You might have dental conditions or a genetic disorder such as ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (very small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (translucent or discolored teeth), which all require extensive restoration. You may want to replace old dental crowns, or just want to improve your mouth for better health or comfort. In more advanced cases, your degraded teeth and gums may have created sunken cheeks or another visible facial deformity. A full-mouth reconstruction can rejuvenate the entire face when the appropriate amount of teeth are in your mouth.
What To Expect with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and bite, full-mouth reconstruction may be recommended. Your unique treatment plan will be created based on the state of your teeth, gum tissue, temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, jaw muscles, and bite. We will go over your treatment and sedation options, and other recommendations during your consultation to ensure your treatment plan fits your needs and goals. Once your treatment plan is created, we will go over what to expect during your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your appointments. In general, a full-mouth reconstruction will take several visits to Bass River Dental. We will plan your procedures with time in between to allow your mouth to heal before the next step is taken.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
After each procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan, a member of our dental team will explain what to expect and how to care for your mouth. We may prescribe antibiotics or pain medication that should be filled before your procedure and taken as directed. You may experience some discomfort or swelling after certain procedures, like implant placement that may make it difficult to chew, so a liquid or soft food diet may be best for you. Once your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, you should maintain your restored oral health with proper brushing and flossing at home. Annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings at Bass River Dental are also important. During your exams, we can monitor the health of your restorations, natural teeth, gums, and jawbone.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Insurance Coverage
During your consultation, your treatment plan will be created based on your goals, needs, and budget. We will give you different options to help make sure your full-mouth reconstruction is affordable. Bass River Dental accepts several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing. If you have dental insurance, we will contact your provider to confirm your benefits and estimate your out-of-pocket costs.
