For patients suffering from multiple oral health problems, Dr. Randall Prince can help plan a comprehensive full mouth reconstruction. From fillings to dental implants, our Dyersburg, TN, dental practice is equipped to handle every phase of treatment without referring you out to specialists. Dr. Prince will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs, whether you suffer from decay, crooked teeth, or tooth loss.
Benefits of a Comprehensive Treatment Plan
A full mouth reconstruction combines multiple restorative procedures in order to more comprehensively restore the function, health, and appearance of your smile. This approach to treatment offers patients many benefits, including:
- Restored dental function
- Ability to enjoy a more complete and well-rounded diet
- More cohesive care in fewer visits
- Elimination of pain, infection, and other threats to long-term oral health
- Improved confidence
- Foundation for a more aesthetic smile
These treatment plans are usually recommended to patients whose teeth are affected by a number of different health problems. Issues such as misaligned bites, tooth decay, and periodontal disease often go hand in hand. Consequently, creating a treatment plan that targets all of these problems at once rather than addressing them individually can make care more effective. Furthermore, these restorative procedures can also lay the foundation for cosmetic services such as Invisalign® or teeth whitening.
The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process
The exact length of treatment will vary from case to case, depending on the combination and order of your procedures. However, the process is typically broken up into discreet phases:
Treatment begins with a consultation at Dr. Prince's office. During this meeting, he will ask about your medical history, goals for treatment, and budget. He can then conduct a thorough examination of your smile, which may include x-rays and other diagnostic tests. Based on his findings, he can recommend potential treatments and will work with you to determine which procedures are best suited to your needs. These may include:
- Dental implants
- Traditional or implant-supported crowns, bridges, or dentures
- Dental fillings
- Periodontal treatments
- Root canal therapy
- Tooth extraction
In order to make the procedures you need as affordable as possible, we offer in-house financing options as well as CareCredit. Once the plan is finalized, Dr. Prince and his team can set the next appointment to begin your treatment.
The length of this phase will depend on the specifics of your plan. Some patients may need only one or two quick appointments while others may need to come in multiple times over the next several months. When possible, Dr. Prince can try to combine multiple treatments into a single appointment. For more extensive, involved procedures such as dental implant surgery, we can provide you with oral conscious sedation to minimize potential discomfort.
A full mouth reconstruction can return a crooked, broken, or unhealthy smile back to its full strength.
The length of recovery will also depend on the procedure in question. While most patients recover from root canal therapy within a few days to a week of their appointment, dental implants often require several months to fully heal.
