Full Mouth Reconstruction


Dental x-ray of a full mouth at Victor Nitu DDS in Peoria, AZWe use the phrase full mouth reconstruction in references to planning and executing multiple dental treatments to get the desired result. This may include replacing missing teeth, treating disease, rebuilding gum tissue, applying crowns or veneers and more. Depending on the situation, you may need multiple procedures. We sometimes refer to this as a complete overhaul. As prosthodontic specialists, our team at Victor Nitu DDS are uniquely qualified to plan and perform the necessary treatment to restore your oral health.

A full mouth reconstruction is not a specific treatment, rather the collection of multiple possible oral treatments to restore the function of the mouth. It often involves the replacement of missing teeth, which may be due to gum disease meaning that the bacterial infection needs to be dealt with and bone needs to be rebuilt, and the list can go on.

Who Needs A Full Mouth Reconstruction?


Most patients do not walk into a consultation knowing they need a full mouth reconstruction. They may simply be aware of an issue. Our team at Victor Nitu DDS will review your oral health status and then walk you through what we see and what treatment, or multiple treatments, need to be done to restore your appearance, function and oral health. Your comprehensive consultation may include digital x-rays, intraoral camera, and a review of your medical and dental histories. Depending on some of the details we see, we may utilize CBCT scanning technology to produce a 3D representation of your teeth, periodontal tissues, and maxillofacial bones.

Full mouth reconstruction is a step by step process for patients with multiple oral health complications that affect both their function and aesthetic. Some steps may be completed in a short time period, and some may take years to complete. In general, we may recommend a full mouth reconstruction to correct some of the following:
•  Restoring Teeth: A patient may be missing one, multiple or even all of their teeth. There are multiple techniques we can apply to rebuild and restore missing teeth. This may include a dental bridge, denture, dental implants and implant retained prosthesis such as a crown, bridge or denture.
•  Strengthening Teeth: When we can save the natural structure and strengthen the tooth, that is always our first option. This can be done with the use of a full dental crown, or a partial crown known as a dental inlay or onlay.
•  Restoring Tissue: Besides restoring teeth, oftentimes the patient requires the reconstruction of soft and hard tissue. Gum reconstruction or contouring can help you have healthy gum tissue grow. Additionally, patients may need bone to be rebuilt and bulked up to restore it’s normal robustness, improving your facial shape and allowing us to embed dental implants.
•  Improving Alignment: Patients may have a bad bite due to the natural growth of their teeth, or the loss of a tooth allowing room for teeth to roam, impacted teeth pushing teeth out of alignment, a traumatic impact to the jaw, and more. We have a variety of options to help your specific needs. It may include an orthodontic device, it may include surgery, we will discuss treatment specific to you.
•  Active Plan to Battle Gum Disease: Chronic periodontitis can be highly destructive to your soft and hard tissues. We can create a plan of treatment to help. In most cases this includes a deep cleaning through scaling and root planing, and we may ask to see you for repeat treatment more frequently. Additionally, we will review the course for battling this disease going forward and what repair options are needed.
