If you have significant issues with your teeth and/or gums, then full mouth reconstruction in Charlotte, NC might be an option. Before you decide the right procedure or procedures for your situation, it is important to know what it is, and what type of dental procedures might be included in your treatment plan. Dr. Layton at Layton Dentistry strives to educate patients about treatment options, so they can make a more informed decision for their treatment.

For Whom Is This Procedure Suitable?

Patients with significant issues that have led to problems with many of their teeth are generally candidates for full mouth reconstruction. Problems might include: Multiple missing teeth

  • Several teeth with decay
  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Ground down teeth

Some patients might also have congenital diseases, such as Ectodermal Dysplasia, Dentinogenesis Imperfecta or Amerliogenesis that also ultimately require complete restoration or reconstruction. Certain oral cancers might also require reconstruction.

What Does It Include?

This procedure does as its name implies: it replaces and rebuilds the entire mouth. It incorporates several aspects of restorative dentistry to create a healthy, strong mouth that improves the function and beauty. Patients generally undergo one or more of the following dental procedures:

  • Crowns
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Onlays
  • Orthodontics
  • Contouring of gum tissue
  • Bone or soft tissue grafting

Which procedures you get depend on the underlying issues and what needs to be restored. Your dentist will evaluate your teeth and see what needs to be done.

Is It the Same As a Smile Makeover?

You might have heard of procedures that create a smile makeover. Although some of the treatments are the same, total reconstruction is typically necessary for the health of the patient rather than a cosmetic or aesthetic procedure. This means that you might have insurance coverage, depending on your policy.

Contact our office in Charlotte, NC today at (980) 322-0815 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Layton to start the process for a full mouth reconstruction or just one or two dental implants.
