The Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction at Dental Works
Save Your Remaining Teeth
If you have lost a tooth to significant decay, infection, or disease, those problems can also affect remaining teeth. Even if you lost a tooth in an accident, the resulting gap will cause jawbone recession. Addressing missing or damaged teeth is essential to maintaining your oral health.

A full mouth reconstruction is uniquely designed for each patient. When you come in for a consultation at our Scottsdale, AZ, office serving greater Phoenix, we will assess your smile and recommend a treatment plan that can best address your specific needs.

Why Do I Need Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Perhaps you know your smile isn't Hollywood-level, and you've made peace with that. But when it comes to a smile compromised by a combination of conditions such as broken, decayed, or missing teeth, it's time to take action. This is because an unhealthy mouth can lead to other health problems, including:
Compromised Overall Health
Gum disease can increase your risk of heart disease and other serious health conditions. Meanwhile, missing teeth cause the jaw to atrophy and change shape. Addressing these issues through this comprehensive procedure has far-reaching health benefits.
When patients live with missing or broken teeth, chewing can be painful, which leads to the neglect of a healthy diet. Restoring your damaged teeth can enable you to eat the variety of healthy foods that your body needs.
Headaches are often caused by an imbalanced bite or strained jaw joints. These can be addressed through full mouth reconstruction.

The Treatments Involved
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots. Implants support crowns, bridges, and dentures while preventing the bone atrophy that occurs after tooth loss.
Traditional crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover a decayed or damaged tooth. Crowns can protect the tooth from further damage while strengthening the bite and restoring the appearance of your smile. Implant-supported crowns can be a restoration option for a single missing tooth.
Dentures can be custom-designed to restore multiple missing teeth. Dentures restore your ability to eat comfortably and speak clearly, and they can now be secured to dental implants for secure support.
Periodontal therapy involves treating the health of the gums. Healthy gums are necessary for a healthy mouth, and periodontal therapy can address gum disease before it becomes too serious.
Fillings repair cavities. Cavities should be treated before the decay spreads from the outside of the tooth to the inside of the tooth. Fillings restore strength to the tooth, and tooth-colored fillings can serve that purpose while appearing natural.
Porcelain veneers can address cosmetic issues such as cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. Veneers are thin shells that attach to the front of a tooth, obscuring the tooth's imperfections and appearing totally natural.
Depending on your personal needs, any number of these procedures can be incorporated into your treatment plan.
A Common Issue
If you need restorative treatment, you are far from alone:
Factors to Consider When Preparing for Treatment
Smoking leads to numerous oral and overall health issues. If you want to restore health to your gums and smile, you should quit smoking several months ahead of treatment and plan on ending the habit permanently.
No one is too old for full mouth reconstruction, but older patients may have issues such as dry mouth that may require special ongoing care after this procedure. Some senior patients suffer from arthritis, which may require deep sedation in order to maintain comfort during each phase of this treatment. The dentists at Dental Works will take these factors into consideration to make your experience the best it can be.
Before undergoing any procedure, you must disclose to your dentist any medications you are taking so that he or she can make certain all risks are minimized and that there are no contraindications that could compromise your safety.
Patients with special needs require specific accommodations that we are happy to provide. Special needs patients of any age can qualify for full mouth reconstruction. The compassionate dentists at our Scottsdale practice have extensive experience working with special needs patients.

The Initial Consultation
Because every full mouth reconstruction is unique and customized to the patient, some questions can only be answered by our dentists after a consultation. During this first appointment, our team will examine your mouth, collect information on your medical history, and ask about your dental goals. Once they have a fuller picture of your situation, they will be able to recommend the treatments that will restore your smile, and they will be able to answer questions about:
Costs can vary significantly depending on which restorative procedures are chosen. For example, fillings, bridges, dentures, and crowns are almost always covered in at least some part by insurance, while dental implants usually are not. Dental Works offers a variety of payment options to help patients afford treatment, and we offer financing through CareCredit.
Length of Treatment
Treatment time will vary depending on the extent of your need and the number and complexity of procedures agreed upon between you and your dentist. Multiple procedures with less complexity can be performed in a single visit. In contrast, more in-depth treatments can take as long as nine months to a year to complete. Dr. Work can phase treatment according to your needs, schedule, and other factors.
The risks of your treatment will depend on the procedures involved in your plan. Potential risks for some of the treatments involved in full mouth reconstruction include infection, damaged nerves, or prosthetics becoming unstable after being improperly secured. Most of the risks potentially involved in treatment are minimal, and the risks are further minimized when working with the experienced doctors at Dental Works.
