Our goal is to rehabilitate the function and appearance of the smile, so each patient is confident in the outcome.

- Deep cleaning
What Qualifies a Patient for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is considered for patients who have dental problems throughout their mouth, including multiple missing teeth, numerous teeth with failing or decaying fillings, or cracked, broken, or damaged teeth.
Causes for dental issues that warrant a full mouth reconstruction may include:
- Gum disease
- Severe teeth grinding
- Severe acid reflux
- Loss of bone density
Some patients who qualify for this process are born with dental disorders and oral health conditions. Health and dental conditions that may constitute the need for full mouth restoration include:
- Dentinogenesis Imperfecta: This is a disorder of tooth development causing teeth to be translucent or discolored, combined with tooth weakness.
- Amelogenesis Imperfecta: With this disorder, teeth are unusually small, discolored, pitted, and break easily.
- Ectodermal Dysplasia: This is a group of disorders wherein 2 or more ectodermal-derived structures develop abnormally. These structures include teeth, skin, sweat glands, hair, nails, and mucous membranes. It manifests dentally with conical or peg-like teeth, hypodontia, complete anodontia, and delayed breakthrough of permanent teeth. In addition, the disorder may include decreased saliva causing dry mouth, which can lead to tooth decay.
