Full mouth reconstruction is a tooth loss solution that can help patients restore their smile. Restorative and cosmetic dental techniques are used for this procedure to rebuild and replace the teeth, while creating a foundation for your new teeth that is durable, long-lasting, and secure. The goal of full mouth reconstruction is to achieve optimal oral health while restoring your smile by replacing damaged, missing, or decaying teeth. This procedure can also be conducted to fill gaps and voids in a patient’s bite, and provide patients with improved oral health, more confidence in their overall appearance, and a natural-looking smile.
Full mouth reconstruction can replace all the missing teeth from the upper or lower jaw by using full mouth dental implants to rebuild the entire arch, while improving overall functionality. Full mouth dental implants require any remaining damaged teeth to be removed prior to your reconstructive surgery. To perform full mouth reconstruction, an entirely new set of teeth is necessary to replace the teeth of the upper and/or lower jaws.
Full mouth dental implants are placed into the jawbone and temporary teeth will be placed on your implants during the healing process. The healing process for the dental implants to fuse to the jawbone and gumline is called osseointegration. This process can take between 3 to 5 months as a stable foundation for your new teeth is created. Once the healing process is completed, your permanent teeth are placed during your next visit to our NYC oral surgery office.
Full mouth reconstruction provides a long-lasting solution to restoring your smile. With full mouth reconstruction, oral surgeons can place dental implants that replicate the look, feel and functionality of natural teeth, replacing any missing or damaged teeth from the upper or lower jaw. Full mouth reconstruction enhances the aesthetic appearance of your smile, resulting in an increase in self-confidence for patients who may have felt embarrassed by their smile previously. Full mouth dental implants offered include All-On-4®, All-On-6®, and All-On-X® dental implants. In addition, full mouth reconstruction improves overall oral health, like reducing discomfort from oral diseases or conditions, such as periodontal disease.

The best candidates to receive full mouth reconstruction are patients who have experienced significant tooth loss or damage, which resulted in the majority of the teeth from the upper or lower jaw needing to be replaced. There are many factors that may lead to tooth loss such as dental decay due to infections or diseases, oral diseases such as gum disease, which can result in loosing multiple teeth, or oral trauma, such as extensive cracks, chips, tooth grinding, and more, which can significantly impact the proper functions of the teeth. Patients who are interested in aesthetic improvement are also candidates for full mouth reconstruction, as discoloration, minor cracks and chips, worn teeth, and more can be improved with full mouth reconstruction.
