Are you living with a decayed, worn-out smile that is hindering your ability to live life the way you want to? We can help. Dr. Gary Silva and his team are experienced in treating full-mouth cases like yours and helping patients get back to living their lives. If you are wondering what a full-mouth reconstruction consists of, read on to better understand what the process might entail.
Step One: Scheduling Your Appointment
The very first step in the full-mouth reconstruction process is to schedule your appointment. Before we can begin treatment, we need to examine your mouth to determine what work is necessary. We can only do that in our office with specialized tools and equipment.
A member of our staff will be happy to help you schedule a date and time that is right for you. We love helping patients achieve the smiles they deserve. Scheduling your consultation means making the first move toward a healthy, more beautiful smile.
Step Two: Having Your Consultation
After you schedule your consultation, the next step is to show up! If you are new to our office, you can find new patient information here. This consultation will help us determine the specific route we need to take to help you achieve the results you want. During this appointment, you will meet our staff and undergo a series of exams. We will take digital X-rays and other images, and then visually inspect your mouth. Our team, along with Dr. Silva, will help determine what work is necessary to give you a happy, comfortable smile.
Your first appointment will last only about an hour and will give you the opportunity to discuss a treatment plan with Dr. Silva. You will be able to ask any questions you may have and Dr. Silva will talk you through any procedures he may suggest. We will help you design a plan of action and begin to schedule the necessary procedures.
Step Three: Undergoing Procedures
The next step in the process is to undergo any procedure necessary to make the repairs. A full-mouth reconstruction often entails multiple procedures. We offer a variety of restorative services that allow us to completely rebuild your mouth. We will work with you to help determine which of these procedures are necessary.
Many of our full-mouth cases require repairing every single tooth in the mouth. Sometimes, the entire mouth can be damaged by disease and decay, but oftentimes teeth are simply worn down. For a variety of reasons, teeth can wear down over time, bringing your upper and lower jaw closer together than what is comfortable. Your teeth may also begin to hurt due to the worn enamel. We can add structure to each of your teeth to restore their integrity as well as to bring your jaws back to a comfortable position.
We offer CEREC same-day dental crowns and bridges, dental implants, dentures, and more. We will work to determine which of these restorative options is right for you. We want to help you achieve functionality and comfort in your new smile with our same-day CEREC restorations and more. We also offer oral sedation medication to help you feel comfortable throughout the procedure. This part of the full-mouth reconstruction process should be the simplest part for you – just lie back, relax, and let us do the work.
Step Four: Living Your Life
After the procedures, you will be free to return to your normal life. A full-mouth restoration could be exactly what you need to achieve a comfortable, healthy, beautiful smile. You will be able to eat, talk, and smile without worry. We can help you find a solution to your dental problems.
