Full mouth reconstruction is oral surgery that uses restorations, like dental implants, to replace missing teeth. It may also include other minimally invasive procedures to remove tissues at the back of the throat, which may block your airways and affect your quality of sleep.
At Plaza Dental Group, the team specializes in full mouth reconstruction. The providers have extensive training and utilize advanced techniques to produce beautiful and functional results.
You may need full mouth reconstruction if you have:
Traditional full mouth reconstruction replaces your permanent teeth if you’ve lost them to extractions, trauma, or poor oral hygiene.
During treatment, your provider inserts small titanium screws (dental implants) into your empty tooth sockets. After placing the implants, they will integrate with your jawbone, providing a secure base for crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.
If you wake up in the morning with fatigue, a dry mouth, or headache, you may have a chronic condition called sleep apnea. Sleep apnea causes you to repeatedly stop and start breathing several times during your sleep cycle. Without proper treatment, it may increase your risk of other health problems, like diabetes and heart disease.
If the team determines that you have sleep apnea, they can use special tools to surgically remove excess tissue at the back of your throat, allowing your airway to stay open for comfortable breathing during sleep.
At Plaza Dental Group, a full mouth reconstruction takes multiple visits over several months.
Your initial consultation includes X-rays, digital photos, and a comprehensive assessment of your teeth, jaws, throat, and mouth.
If you’re missing teeth, the team places your dental implants during an outpatient procedure. With sleep apnea, they may recommend oral appliance therapy or oral surgery, depending on your needs and preferences.
After a full oral exam, a complete review of your dental records, and a discussion of your treatment goals, the team at Plaza Dental Group can develop a custom treatment plan.
