Full mouth reconstruction at Creekwood Dental Arts in Waco, TX is a procedure that might sound more intimidating that it actually is. Reconstructive surgery has both cosmetic and physical benefits that can improve the look of your smile as well as your quality of life. If you have decided that a smile makeover is the best option for you, but are still wondering what to expect, there are a few things you should know.

It Is a Completely Customized Procedure

Every person’s mouth is completely unique, so reconstructive surgery is not one-size-fits-all. In fact, it’s one of the most customized procedures you can have done. It is a multi-step process that can entail any or all of the following aspects:

  • Placement of fillings, crowns or bridges
  • Implant placement for missing teeth
  • Oral surgery procedures such as root canals
  • Cosmetic applications such as veneers and whitening

In some cases, these steps are combined and completed in the same appointment, but sometimes multiple appointments are required. No matter what timeline your procedure follows, each step will build on prior work to build a beautiful smile.

Preparation and Aftercare

Preparing for a full mouth reconstruction and taking care of your smile after the procedure are the most important steps you can take to ensure the work you have done is effective and long-lasting. We will handle most of the preparation required for the surgery, but it is up to you to handle aftercare. Your prescribed regimen will depend on which procedures your reconstruction entails, but in general, you will need to be very gentle with your mouth while it is recovering. If you do this and maintain good dental habits, you can expect to heal with healthier teeth and a beautiful smile to show for it.
