Sometimes one treatment just isn’t enough to help a patient get the healthy, beautiful smile they deserve. Whether due to neglect or an accident, we see many patients who have problems that affect most or even all of their teeth, and they usually have large gaps as well. For people in this situation, Dr. Patel can offer hope and a proven solution in the form of a full mouth reconstruction.
Dr. Patel typically recommends a full mouth reconstruction for patients who have several missing, decayed, or broken teeth as well as bite alignment problems, aesthetic concerns, and unmanaged periodontal disease (gum disease). In these instances, addressing one problem at a time would be quite ineffective, so it’s best to tackle them all at once. The treatment is designed to not only restore the smile functionally, but improve its appearance as well.
Every full mouth reconstruction is different and designed based on the needs of the patient. However, they all begin the same way—with a consultation. During this, Dr. Patel will ask the patient about their dental history and goals, take some X-rays, and examine their mouth. Based on his findings, he’ll discuss what combination of services should make up someone’s full mouth reconstruction. It may include things like dental implants, veneers, crowns, and more.
Once a treatment plan has been agreed upon, the patient will visit Dr. Patel multiple times over the coming months. Depending on a patient’s situation, the entire process may take just a few months or might be closer to a year. But, in the end, the smile will look and feel brand new.
Because each full mouth reconstruction is different, this is reflected in the cost as well. The final price will be completely dependent on the number and complexity of procedures a patient ultimately needs. Thankfully, many services can be partially covered by dental insurance. And, for those who need more help with their out-of-pocket costs, we offer low-to-no-interest financing through CareCredit as well. We’ll give you an estimate of what you’ll be expected to pay at your consultation so you’ll know exactly what to expect from the very beginning.
