Dr. Benjamin De Graff at Ponderosa Dental Center in Bend, Oregon wants to do everything he can to improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Some people think of dentists as the people who fill an occasional cavity or two. Dr. De Graff is that and much more! He can give you a full mouth restoration to fix all your dental issues, improve your oral health to the max, and give you the confidence to smile wide.

What is a Full Mouth Restoration?

A full mouth restoration puts together several dental procedures to enhance your oral health and the appearance of your teeth. It addresses every problem that your teeth currently face, from cavities to bite issues to stained surfaces. Dr. De Graff puts together a customized treatment plan that will be carried out over a specific amount of time. When the plan is completed, your teeth and mouth will look and feel great, plus you’ll enjoy better oral health.

Who Can Get a Full Mouth Restoration?

Any person with extensive dental issues can benefit from a full mouth restoration. People who make good candidates for this type of treatment plan include those with the following conditions:

  • Multiple cavities, some of which may be severe and require extensive restoration
  • Bone loss due to various dental issues, including missing teeth
  • Teeth that are missing, or need extraction
  • Gum disease that has led to other dental health issues
  • TMJ disorders
  • Irregular bite, requiring orthodontics
  • Misshapen teeth 
  • Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Badly stained or discolored teeth
  • A combination of any of the above

What Types of Procedures are Used in a Full Mouth Restoration?

Dr. De Graff will use whatever dental procedures are necessary to fix your dental issues and restore your mouth to a healthy and attractive condition. Full mouth restorations are personalized to each individual mouth, so each one will be different. Examples of dental procedures that may be included in a full mouth restoration plan include:

Every full mouth restoration begins with a comprehensive examination, during which Dr. De Graff will diagnose your needs. He will then put together a treatment plan that may involve several phases of treatments over time. By the end of the treatment, you will have a healthier, more beautiful mouth!

Do I Have a Say Over What Goes on the Treatment Plan?

Of course you do! Dr. De Graff includes you in every step. If you ever have questions about any part of the treatment plan, all you have to do is ask, and he will do his best to explain the reason for the treatment and what it will be like. You can always say that you don’t want a certain treatment, or you’d prefer it to be completed sometime later.

The entire staff at Ponderosa Dental Center will work closely with you throughout the entirety of your full mouth restoration. This includes telling you the exact costs of the procedures, and ensuring you know which of your costs will be covered by your dental insurance and which will need to be paid in full. We can work out a dental savings plan for you, too, if that will help you afford your treatments.
