Full Mouth Reconstruction in Sherman, TX

A full mouth reconstruction combines esthetics with the science behind restorative dentistry to improve the function, health and beauty of the mouth. A full mouth reconstruction involves rebuilding and restoring advanced dental issues in both the upper and lower jaws using a combination of different procedures. At Dr. Sam's Premier Dentistry in Sherman, TX, we offer a variety of cosmetic and restorative treatments that can reverse your dental damage.

Are You A Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Dr. Sam might suggest a full mouth reconstruction as a treatment plan for patients with:
  • Teeth which have been lost or require extraction due to extensive decay or trauma.
  • Teeth which have been damaged as a result of an accident or injury.
  • Teeth which have become extensively eroded as a result of long-term tooth grinding or acid erosion.
  • Chronic jaw, ear, muscle and head pain, which usually stems from a misaligned bite.

Developing a Treatment Plan

To determine if a full mouth reconstruction is right for you, Dr. Sam and our experienced team will assess and examine your mouth, as well as take X-rays of the damage.

Imaging helps us understand the extent of your dental problems and identify which treatments will be the most successful in restoring the function, health and beauty of your teeth.

During your consultation, some of the key elements that we will look at include:

Periodontal Health

Our gums provide a firm foundation for our teeth, keeping them securely in place. However, for any reconstructive procedures to be successful, the strength and health of the patients’ gums should first be addressed. Gum disease is an extremely common oral complaint and one that can be treated with relative ease provided it is dealt with promptly.

Dental Health

Unsurprisingly, your teeth will be a large focus of your reconstruction examinations. Their condition will help Dr. Sam and the team to determine the extent of work that will need to be carried out, such as crowns, bridges, fillings and implants.

Jaw Alignment

The way that teeth fit together can have a substantial effect on the health of your teeth and the way in which wear and tear occurs. Dr. Sam will perform a careful assessment of your bite, jaw and TMJ to establish if any of them require professional intervention. If so, any orthodontic work will almost certainly need to be performed ahead of making cosmetic improvements.

Cosmetic Dental Condition

A full mouth reconstruction can also transform the appearance of your teeth, creating a smile that is straight, balanced and beautifully natural.

Common Full Mouth Restoration Treatments

Every reconstruction is different and based on the unique needs of each patient. This means that Dr. Sam may recommend one or a combination of the procedures listed below:
  • Bone and/or soft tissue grafting to create a secure foundation for your dental work.
  • Gum contouring, to create an equal and esthetically pleasing gum level.
  • Crown lengthening to create a healthy structure for crowns or bridges.
  • Dental implants.
  • Orthodontic treatments such as traditional braces or Invisalign®. These treatments can correct crooked, twisted, gapped or otherwise misaligned teeth and orthodontic braces can also improve bite problems.
  • Periodontal care.
  • Placement of temporary restorations, while final versions are being prepared.
  • Placement of the permanent reconstructive features including crowns, bridges, veneers and more.
  • Preparation of your natural teeth, ready to accept crowns, implants, bridges, orthodontic braces and more.
  • Teeth cleaning and aftercare.
