What is Full Mouth Restoration?

  • Full mouth restoration is a series of planned treatments for various diseases or problems in a patient’s mouth. It aims to re-establish a healthy environment in the oral cavity.
  • Any problems ranging from tooth decay to missing teeth are taken care of under this treatment.
  • The craniofacial region of the body (the head and neck) functions as one unit. The slightest disturbance in any part of this complex can result in problems. For example, an anomaly in the bite of a patient may lead to the deviation of the jaw. Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain may occur due to this, which radiates to the head and ear.
  • The procedure aims at maintaining a balance among the various structures involved.
  • The oral cavity (mouth) plays a massive part in this balance. Therefore, it is critical to address any problems in the mouth at the earliest.

Full-Mouth-Implant-Restoration-Steps

The various steps that the dentists perform are:

STEP 1: EXAMINATION

The dental surgeon examines the various structures, including:

  • Teeth for cavities and decays.
  • TMJ and adjoining muscles for abnormalities of the joint and the muscles attached to it, e.g., clicking, deviation, and pain.
  • Gums for swelling, recession, and overgrowth.
  • Color, size, and shape of the teeth to determine the relationship with the surrounding muscles, and with the opposing teeth.

The examination requires photographs, X-rays, and impressions of upper and lower teeth.

STEP 2: ASSESSMENT

The impressions so obtained are then used as molds in which suitable material is poured and casts replicating the patient’s mouth are prepared.

The assessment of these casts will tell the experts a lot more about the aberrations and inconsistencies in the mouth. They can help measure the bone height precisely and check the irregularity in the arch.

STEP 3: PROCEDURE

Multiple treatment options are available for different kinds of problems. The treatment also depends upon the condition of the patient’s mouth.

The treatment options for damaged teeth are listed below:

1. Loss of teeth

Single Dental Implants

An implant is a screw-like object made of titanium, which is drilled into the jawbone. The number of implants depends on the number of missing teeth and their positions.

Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or multiple implants can be used. Various systems of multiple implants are available. These are explained below:

Multiple or Full Mouth Dental Implants

All-on-4 Implants

Here, four implants are placed in the jawbone. The unique thing about them is the two anterior, or front implants are placed vertically whereas the two posterior or back implants are placed at an angle of 45 degrees.

This drastically increases the support provided by the back implants. See more on All on 4 Implants in Mexico here.

All-on-6/8 Implants

These resemble All-on-4, but instead of 4 implants, 6 or 8 implants are placed. The treatment option will depend on the quality and quantity of the bone left in the jaw.

These implants are topped with dentures. All of the teeth in an arch are replaced in one go

2. Superficial damage:

Cavity filling: A simple filling is done with a suitable material which is the same color as the tooth.

3. Damage extending into the pulp:

Root Canal Treatment: In this dental procedure the dentist removes the pulp and infection, and fills the canal with a suitable material

Crown: Placing a crown on top of a tooth which has undergone RCT is essential so that the weakened tooth structure doesn’t break down.

4. Extensive damage beyond repair:

Extraction: The offending teeth are extracted under proper anesthetic cover.

Dental Implants: They can be single or multiple. Multiple implant systems include all-on-4 and all-on-6/8, which are suitable for a patient who has lost many teeth.

(A crown is placed after implants also. It goes over the abutment of the implant. This is done to restore the function and aesthetics of a natural tooth.)

Bridge: It is a way to replace missing teeth where the two teeth adjacent to the space are used for support. They are trimmed, and crowns are placed on them to which the actual pontic or replacement tooth is attached.

5. Superficial discoloration:

Veneers: The surface is trimmed slightly, and a tooth-colored thin sheet of pre-shaped porcelain is cemented in place.

STEP 4: MAINTENANCE

  • The instructions given by the dentist just after the procedure are crucial. These need to be followed exactly as they tell you to.
  • The dentist will also prescribe certain medications which will make it easier for you to recover from the trauma of the surgery. These may include painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications. Antibiotics may also be prescribed to avoid development of any infection, post-op.
  • Pain and swelling of a less degree are quite common for a few days after the procedure. Warm saline rinses starting 24 hours after the surgery are usually recommended to help this swelling subside.
  • Regular cleaning of the operated site is imperative to avoid infections. Cleaning can be done using a finger or a very soft bristled toothbrush. Undue force can damage the tissues, so use only minimal force.
  • Any other habits like smoking or tobacco chewing are strictly prohibited. Smoking is one of the leading factors of dental implant failure.
  • If you feel anything out of the ordinary, be sure to contact your dentist and clear your doubts.

Full Mouth Restoration vs. Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is done to improve or change the aesthetics of the patient’s smile. Hence, it is an elective procedure. Get information on smile makeover in Mexico here.

Full mouth restoration, however, is not only concerned with aesthetics, but also with the dental problems the patient faces. These include decayed, missing, misaligned, discolored teeth, jaw augmentation, and implants.

The demand for full mouth restoration is growing across the world. Dental tourism in Mexico can help you say about 40-70% less than in the US.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. Who is a good candidate for full mouth restoration?

Generally, people who have multiple dental health problems are good candidates for complete mouth rehabilitation.

The dentist deals with various issues one by one and gives appropriate treatment over a period of a few months.

Full mouth reconstruction aims to bring the health and anatomy of your mouth back to normal.

2. What problems can it take care?

It can help eliminate tooth decay and gum disease as well as restore and replace damaged and lost teeth.

It can also address jaw misalignments and issues with the TMJ, which can cause the patient much discomfort and soreness.

When this treatment is over, there is not only a benefit to the oral health of a patient but also to the mental and physical health.

Dental procedures have shown to turn people’s lives around completely. They carry themselves with a renewed sense of self-confidence.

3. Am I too old for full mouth restoration?

No. Dental treatment mostly has nothing to do with age. Other factors, however, like blood pressure problems, diabetes, and osteoporosis might hinder the dental surgery in one way or the other.

These need to be controlled enough to perform the surgery and to let the tissues heal after the surgery.

This can be done by taking the proper medication prescribed by the dental surgeon and making the necessary lifestyle changes.

4. Does it hurt to get mouth restoration done?

Not at all! Full mouth restoration is not one procedure, but a series of treatments done for various problems in the mouth.

For each procedure, you will be given an adequate dose of anesthesia to numb the area in your mouth where the dentist needs to work.

This will prevent any pain or pressure from being inflicted, and before you know it, the appointment will be over.

5. How long do the results last?

If you take proper care and follow the instructions of your dentist, it is quite likely that your treatment could last indefinitely.

However, this again depends on the procedures you had. For example, implants can last the patient a lifetime, if maintained properly.

The most crucial thing to remember here is that your oral hygiene standards need to be very good. Other habits like smoking may also lead to a failure of treatment. The life of your dental treatment is in your hands.

6. How long before I can get back to work after full mouth implants?

In case of major procedures, like implants or periodontal surgeries, a few days need to given to the body to regain its strength. The exact amount of time varies from patient to patient.

The precise information can only be given to you by your dentist. On an average, three days to one week of rest is recommended after any major surgery.

7. Will the shade of the crown or veneer change after some time?

The material of the crown or veneer is highly resistant to discoloration. Over time, your natural teeth might get stained if you don’t take care of your eating and drinking habits.

There are some situations where the prosthesis might stain, but that is mostly due to mechanical damage, causing the removal of the glaze layer on its surface making it non-resistant to attack by foods and drinks which stain.

8. Is full mouth restoration different from full mouth implants?

Full mouth restoration refers to a series of treatments which are done in the patient’s mouth when they have many dental problems at the same time.

This will include all kinds of treatments like fillings, RCT, implant procedures, etc. The condition of the patient is evaluated, and the necessary treatment is performed.

On the other hand, full mouth implants refer to a situation where the patient has lost many teeth. Here, all the existing teeth in the patient’s arch are extracted, and 4,6 or 8 implants are placed. The implants are topped with a full arch denture.

So, the latter option essentially replaces all the teeth, whereas, in the former, the dentist will treat each tooth and supporting tissue with the desired dental work.

9. Will I get a guarantee on the dental work?

Yes. Our network clinics in Mexico offer guarantees for their dental work. The period of this guarantee will vary according to the treatment given.

The patient’s habits like smoking might also affect the guarantee. To know more, please contact your case manager.

10. Will my speech improve after getting full mouth dental implants?

Speech (or phonetics) has a direct correlation to the upper and lower teeth, the tongue, the lips and their relations with one another. Phonetics are one of the main concerns when it comes to fabricating a prosthesis.

Many patients can’t correctly pronounce certain words, for example, those beginning with ‘s’, ‘f’, and ‘v’. The reason for this could be that your front teeth have worn down due to disease or grinding or that you have been wearing a poorly designed prosthesis.

So if you’re getting a new prosthesis made, your dentist will measure the proper vertical dimension of your mouth and work according to that.
