Full Mouth Reconstruction Q & A

What is full-mouth reconstruction?

Full-mouth reconstruction at My Time Dental Centers uses cutting-edge technology to produce a full set of beautiful teeth. Dr. Schmelter and his team personalize each treatment to improve the appearance and function of your smile with little to no downtime.

Is full-mouth reconstruction right for me?

Dr. Schmelter and his team review your medical and dental history, and examine your mouth to determine if you’re a good candidate for full-mouth reconstruction. They also take dental X-rays and discuss your desired outcome. The procedure might be right for you if you have:

  • Tooth damage
  • Extensive tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Crooked teeth
  • Tooth loss
  • Tooth or mouth trauma
  • Damaged dental restorations
  • Severe tooth wear and tear
  • A bad bite
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders 

The My Time Dental Centers team determines optimal jaw alignment and tailors each treatment to your unique needs. They use temporary restorations to test bite alignment and rule out occlusion. Dr. Schmelter takes impressions for wax up trials and makes adjustments when necessary.

What happens during mouth reconstruction?

Prior to treatment, Dr. Schmelter uses local anesthetic and offers sedation dentistry to relieve dental anxiety if you experience it. He might use one or more of the following dental restoration procedures to repair or replace your teeth:

  • White fillings
  • Inlays
  • Onlays
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Invisalign®

Multiple appointments are often needed to perfect your smile during full-mouth reconstruction. For example, Dr. Schmelter must surgically place dental implants and allow them to heal prior to getting implant-supported crowns, bridges, or dentures.

What should I expect after treatment?

After full-mouth reconstruction at My Time Dental Centers, care for your new smile by brushing twice daily, flossing every day, and not chewing on hard objects. If you grind your teeth or play contact sports, Dr. Schmelter might recommend you wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth and smile.

Call My Time Dental Centers if a restoration becomes loose or damaged, and see Dr. Schmelter and his team every six months for routine dental cleanings and exams.
