Full-Mouth Reconstruction Waterbury Trusts
If you’ve sustained extensive damage to your teeth, gums, or jaw, you may need multiple dental procedures over several months to return your smile to its natural beauty. The task may seem daunting and unappealing, but the important thing to keep in mind is that, with personalized attention from the team at Waterbury Smiles, patients are able to fully repair even the most severe damage.
What is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Technically, a full-mouth reconstruction is the repair or replacement of all the teeth. However, full-mouth reconstruction, restoration, or rehabilitation are terms frequently used to refer to any combination of restorative dental treatments to repair a smile. Full-mouth reconstruction is the systematic restoration, replacement, or repair of teeth due to damage from traumatic injury, severe wearing due to erosion or bruxism (teeth grinding/clenching), or oral cancer and cancer treatments. Depending on what restorative dentistry services are necessary, we may partner with trusted peers in orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, or other dental specialties. Even if we need to utilize specialist treatments, Waterbury Smiles will be with you every step of the way to ensure you understand each treatment, and are always comfortable with the care they receive.
What Procedures Are Involved?
The great thing about full-mouth reconstruction from the outstanding dental team at Waterbury Smiles is that we personally develop and plan every aspect of your treatment to maximize oral health benefits and minimize time, financial strain, stress, and discomfort. For this reason, no two patients receive the same full-mouth reconstruction plan, but every full-mouth rehabilitation begins with a thorough dental evaluation. This includes x-rays and evaluation of individual teeth, periodontal (gum) and other soft tissues, temporomandibular joint, jawbone, and cosmetic appearance. Some of the most commonly recommended reconstructive dental services include:
- Scaling and root planing and other periodontal therapy to treat gum disease
- Crowns, inlays, onlays, or porcelain veneers to repair damaged teeth
- Root canal therapy to remove infected tissue inside the tooth
- Crown and bridge, partial or full dentures, and dental implant-retained replacement teeth
- Bone or tissue grafting
- Repositioning of the jaw
- Orthodontic services to realign the jaw or teeth

Like full-mouth reconstruction, smile makeovers involve a combination of cosmetic and restorative treatments personally planned to correct and conceal any imperfections in your smile.
