Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive dental treatment plan that involves restoring or replacing all teeth in the upper and lower jaws using dental implants, which are artificial tooth roots surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth.
The process begins with a thorough examination of the patient's teeth, gums, and jaw structure, including x-rays, dental impressions, and other diagnostic tests. The specific treatments involved can vary, but commonly include extracting damaged or decayed teeth, placing dental implants, abutments, crowns, or bridges, and performing gum or bone grafting procedures.
