What Is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Full-mouth reconstruction is a treatment approach performed to address a range of dental needs and rehabilitate oral health for improved chewing, speaking, and a more attractive smile. Often comprised of two or more procedures, full-mouth restoration at Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics may include inlays, onlays, bridges, crowns, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and dentures, among other services. Some reconstruction treatment plans may also entail bone grafting or other advanced procedures. Our team of experienced general dentists is pleased to offer full-mouth reconstruction services to Wyomissing and Reading, PA patients that can help rejuvenate oral health, function, and appearance. If you have dental concerns that affect several areas of your mouth, talk to our caring team today to learn more about full-mouth reconstruction.

Best Candidates for Care
You may be a good candidate for full-mouth reconstruction if you have missing teeth, large fillings that need replacement, widespread decay, or teeth that are broken, cracked, or badly worn down due to bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). Dental conditions or hereditary disorders, like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (very small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (translucent or discolored teeth), may also be best treated with a full-mouth restoration approach. You may wish to replace old crowns or simply want to improve your mouth for better health or comfort. In more advanced cases, bone loss in the jaw might have caused changes in your appearance, like sunken cheeks, or may be insufficient to support tooth replacement with dental implants or other options. Full-mouth reconstruction may rejuvenate your facial appearance, improve your ability to bite and chew and allow you to speak and laugh with confidence once again.
The Full-Mouth Reconstruction Process
After a complete examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw, our team of dental experts might recommend full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment plan will be generated, depending on the condition of your teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, jawbone health, and dental bite. We will talk with you about your treatment options, sedation choices, and incorporate your own concerns to ensure your treatment strategy fits your wants and goals. Once your treatment plan is made, our clinical team will go over what to expect in your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your appointments. Generally, a full-mouth reconstruction will take a few visits to Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics and may be performed over the course of a couple of weeks to several months. Your procedures may be scheduled with breaks in between to let your mouth recover before the next step begins.
Recovery Following Care
After every treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan, our dentists will describe what to expect and how to take care of your mouth. Depending on your unique needs, you may find it beneficial to eat a soft food diet as your mouth heals. Once your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, it is important to maintain your oral health with proper brushing and flossing at home. Regularly scheduled dental checkups and cleanings at Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics are also essential to keeping your smile happy and healthy from year to year. During your exams, our dentists will monitor the health of your own restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jaw.
Insurance Coverage for Treatments
During your consultation, we will design your treatment plan based on your goals, needs, and budget. Our treatment coordinator will then review your dental insurance benefits and let you know of anticipated coverage amounts and estimated out-of-pocket expenses. To make full-mouth reconstruction treatment as affordable as possible, Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics accepts several payment methods, including interest-free financing plans.
