Full mouth reconstruction is the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.
The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:
1. Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
2. Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
3. Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding.
4. Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite.
Working on the full mouth at the same time allows the prosthodontist to fabricate new restorations simultaneously giving a precise and intricate bite and function.
Dr. Yi fabricates immediate prosthesis at the same day to accommodate his patients who are flying in to see him from across the world. You are treated to a full day of pampering while Dr. Yi works on all of your implants in the same day. You go home with a dazzling new smile. He makes custom provisional restorations that are used as a prototype for you to evaluate and critique. Dr. Yi will then work with your suggestions to modify the provisional restorations allowing you to have a hand in what your final restorations will look like.
A smile makeover is something that you elect to have performed, while a full mouth reconstruction is something that you need.
