Do you have so many dental issues that you don’t know which one you should get fixed first? Are you constantly having to work around your missing, broken, and decayed teeth and the confidence issues they cause? If so, know that it isn’t too late for your smile, and getting the care you need won’t break the bank either! With a full mouth reconstruction in Plano from Dr. Antoon, he can give your smile new life while making sure the process is as smooth as possible.

Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for Me?

Dr. Antoon typically recommends a full mouth reconstruction for patients whose teeth are mostly missing or have some type of damage, and this is leading to instability in their bite. While the primary focus is to get someone’s oral health to an acceptable level, this treatment can also help a patient restore their appearance so they feel better about themselves in social situations.

The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process

Every full mouth reconstruction starts with a conversation between the patient and Dr. Antoon. At this consultation, you’ll have a chance to talk about your situation, your concerns, and your goals. Based on your input and an oral exam, Dr. Antoon might suggest a full mouth reconstruction. If you both agree that it is the best way to go, the process will unfold like this:

  • You’ll attend several appointments over the course of a few months or close to a year for more complicated cases.
  • The individual steps that make up the reconstruction will vary based on your needs but may include procedures like crowns, fillings, extractions, implants, veneers, and more.
  • Your mouth may need time to rest between procedures.
  • Adjustments can be made to the plan as needed based on how things are going.
  • If you ever have a question, you’ll always have easy access to our team through phone or email.

Understanding the Cost of a Full Mouth Reconstruction

No two full mouth reconstructions are the same, so the cost will always be different from patient to patient. The financial details will be discussed fully during your initial consultation so that there are no surprises along the way. Often, dental insurance can be used to offset the cost of many treatments, and our practice is thankfully in-network with several PPO plans.

Patients also have the option of breaking up their costs into smaller installments with low-to-no-interest financing from CareCredit, and we even offer our own in-house discount plan. You simply sign up, pay a flat fee, and you’ll gain access to several discounts that rival or even exceed traditional insurance while spending less out-of-pocket.

Full Mouth Reconstruction FAQs

There is a lot to think about when you commit to having a full mouth reconstruction done, and in many cases, you may feel like you don’t have all the information you need. If there’s something you don’t know, speak to one of our helpful team members so that they can answer your inquiries and put any concerns you might have to rest. The following FAQs address a few of the questions that we’ve often heard from patients preparing to undergo a full mouth reconstruction.

How Long Will My Full Mouth Reconstruction Results Last?

Answering this question can be tricky simply because there are so many different treatments that could potentially make up your full mouth reconstruction plan. The longevity of the results can vary depending on the procedures used. However, you will generally be able to enjoy your new smile for a longer period of time if:

  • You brush and floss your teeth every day.
  • You don’t bite down on hard foods that could chip your teeth.
  • You don’t overindulge on beverages that are known to leave stains on teeth.
  • You don’t smoke.
  • You don’t use your teeth as tools to open packages.
  • You call our dental office immediately if you notice oral pain or any other unusual symptoms.

Does Getting a Full Mouth Reconstruction Hurt?

No matter what kind of treatment you need, we want to make sure that your full mouth reconstruction involves as little stress and discomfort as possible. We may numb your mouth before certain procedures; on top of that, sedation dentistry can provide further pain relief while also helping you stay calm throughout your visit.

After your treatment, we may give you some aftercare instructions. Be sure to follow them carefully if you want to keep your soreness and discomfort under control during your recovery.

Will People Be Able to Tell That I Have Had a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

We can personalize your full mouth reconstruction treatment so that the results are as lifelike as possible. But how noticeable will the change ultimately be? The answer can vary from patient to patient. For example, if you only need to have a few decayed teeth repaired, people may not notice as much of a difference; on the other hand, more extensive changes tend to result in a more dramatic smile transformation. Whether you want your changes to be noticeable or subtle is something you should let our team know during your initial consultation.

I’ve Had a Full Mouth Reconstruction – Is There Anything I Can’t Eat?

After certain procedures, you may need to switch to a soft food diet while your mouth is healing. Yogurt, scrambled eggs, and mashed potatoes are all examples of soft foods that are worth stocking up on before your full mouth reconstruction. You should be able to return to your normal diet after your mouth has fully recovered. Once the process is complete, your bite should be strong enough to handle all kinds of foods. However, you should still limit your exposure to sugary treats that can lead to cavities.
