Full Mouth Reconstruction
Suffering from multiple oral health issues at once can impact your ability to eat and speak properly.
Full mouth reconstruction is a combination of treatments that can transform the look and function of your smile.
The experienced dentists at Lakeview Dental in Lakeville, NY, can customize a treatment plan to give you natural-looking results.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
If you're looking to treat multiple dental health issues at once, full mouth reconstruction may be right for you. Full mouth reconstruction is a customized treatment plan that combines restorative dentistry procedures to rehabilitate smiles in any state of disrepair. You'll work with Dr. Brian Hirschfield or Dr. Brenda Sousa to create a plan that repairs the health and function of your smile while preventing further health issues from developing.
While full mouth reconstruction will inevitably improve the aesthetics of your smile, the goal of treatment is purely restorative. If you're looking to address multiple cosmetic dental issues, a smile makeover may be better for you. This treatment plan may include veneers, gum contouring, or teeth whitening. We proudly offer both of these comprehensive treatment options to patients in Lakeville, NY, and throughout Upstate New York.
Your Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatment Options
Our Lakeville, NY, practice, serving patients throughout Upstate New York, provides traditional and implant-supported bridges to replace one or more missing teeth. A traditional bridge fills in the gap resulting from missing teeth and consists of crowns on either side of the gap that support an artificial tooth or teeth called pontics. An implant-supported bridge is secured onto dental implants, which are anchored into the jawbone to replace natural tooth roots.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that covers a chipped, cracked, or severely damaged existing tooth. This type of restoration can be used for restorative reasons, such as protecting a tooth after a root canal, or for cosmetic reasons, like concealing dental discoloration. Many patients find that crowns are just as effective as veneers for cosmetic results. A traditional crown provides strength to a damaged tooth and looks just like your natural teeth. A dental crown supported by a dental implant can be used in place of a missing tooth.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw to replace missing tooth roots. Implants are the only restorative dentistry treatment that can stop or prevent bone degeneration that occurs when the jaw bone does not have the stimulation of tooth roots. Implants can be used in combination with bridges, crowns, and dentures.
Bone grafting is performed to treat the bone loss that typically occurs when teeth have been missing for some time. A bone graft fosters bone regeneration and prevents further jawbone atrophy. Receiving a bone graft can vastly improve your candidacy for dental implants.
Dentures can be used to replace or all of the teeth along one or both dental arches. We craft full and partial dentures, as well as traditional and implant-supported dentures. Traditional dentures use denture adhesive to stay in place, while implant-supported dentures are anchored directly to the jawbone.
Periodontal treatment, such as scaling and root planing, can treat gingivitis and more severe periodontitis to improve your oral health. It can also help prevent further issues, like infection and tooth decay. Healthy gums are vital to a healthy mouth, and gum disease must be resolved before moving forward with further restorations.
Dental bonding conceals imperfections such as chips, stains, and gaps using tooth-colored bonding materials like resin. Your dentist will carefully apply thin layers of the material to your tooth, and it will be hardened using a UV light.
Tooth-colored fillings are used to restore teeth after treating mild to moderate decay. Your filling will be matched to the color of the surrounding tooth structure, resulting in a natural-looking smile.
For teeth that are beyond repair, our dentists can perform a tooth extraction. This prevents further damage and infections. If you require an extraction, our practice can replace the missing tooth or teeth with an implant supported crown, bridge, or dentures.

A Closer Look at Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments
Feeling Anxious About Your Treatment? Sedation Is Available to Keep You Comfortable
Many of the restorative dentistry procedures that can be included in full mouth reconstruction are relatively painless, including implant placement and root canal therapy. However, we understand that local anesthesia may not be enough to keep you comfortable if you have dental anxiety or difficulty sitting through longer procedures. If this sounds like you, consider including sedation as part of your treatment plan.
During your appointment, we can bring in a New York State-certified anesthesiologist to expertly administer sedation and ensure you have the most relaxing experience possible.

How Much does full mouth reconstruction cost?
Because we tailor full mouth reconstruction to a patient's unique dental needs, it is impossible to give an accurate cost estimate without a full examination. During your initial consultation, your dentist will examine your smile and discuss your needs and goals to develop a custom treatment plan that addresses your concerns.
Since most of the treatments performed with full mouth reconstruction are restorative, dental insurance may cover all or portions of your treatment. This varies by provider and healthcare plan. Once we develop a treatment plan, we can verify what your insurance may cover as well as any out-of-pocket costs.
At Lakeview Dental in Lakeville, NY, we accept Compassionate Finance™ to help with financing out-of-pocket costs.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
The length of time for full mouth reconstruction depends on the amount of work that needs to be completed. For simpler cases, the timeframe may only be one or two visits. Other patients may have their work completed in a few months, whereas patients who want implants, for instance, may not be finished for over a year.
During your consultation, the dentist will fully explain the timeframe for your treatment and ensure that you are informed about the entire process.
