For some people, enjoying a full set of functioning teeth takes more than one or two simple dental procedures. This is particularly true for those who have suffered from some type of disease that has affected their oral health, or some sort of traumatic injury. These circumstances that result in extensive damage to the patient’s teeth and gums can have devastating effects on quality of life. That’s why Dr. Rawcliffe is pleased to offer full mouth reconstruction services to his patients from throughout the Round Rock, TX, area.
What’s Involved in Full Mouth Reconstruction
The exact procedures that are involved in a full mouth reconstruction will vary greatly depending on what each patient needs. A full mouth reconstruction is a plan that is developed by Dr. Rawcliffe and based on the procedures that will be necessary to restore the patient to a fully functioning set of teeth and good overall oral health. The first step involves meeting with Dr. Rawcliffe for an oral exam, then discussing with him what your ultimate goals are with respect to your oral health. Based on the current condition of your teeth and gums, and what goals you have for the future, Dr. Rawcliffe will develop a recommended set of procedures designed to achieve those goals.
Full mouth reconstructions most typically involve a combination of restorative and cosmetic procedures. If you are missing teeth, for example, Dr. Rawcliffe may recommend a dental bridge or implants to replace those teeth. If you have teeth that have been damaged but are still salvageable, he may suggest porcelain veneers or dental bonding to restore and protect those teeth. Whatever procedures are involved in your full mouth reconstruction, it’s important to remember that the entire plan typically takes many visits to our office to complete. Although full mouth reconstructions take time, patients would agree that it’s well worth the effort since the end result is a complete set of fully functioning teeth and good oral health!
