What is Full Mouth Restoration?

added on: November 15, 2023

Full mouth restoration may be for you if you have multiple missing, broken, or otherwise damaged teeth. This functional smile makeover enables a patient to renew both the functionality and aesthetics of their smile. A full restoration process can include addressing the underlying gum tissue, bone loss, and creating a natural-looking smile that you’re excited to show off.

Embarking on a full mouth restoration is a significant commitment and one that we understand isn’t made lightly. That’s why we invite our patients in for a consultation, where they can get to know our team and Dr. Graff can discuss what your personalized treatment plan may look like.

Full Mouth Restoration Versus Smile Makeover

When we think of a smile makeover, this is often in terms of addressing issues with specific teeth for aesthetic purposes. This could involve teeth whitening or using Invisalign to gradually shift teeth into a straighter position. Restoration can tackle the functionality of the teeth and provide the patient with a better quality of life. Missing teeth or damaged tooth structure can not only lead to self-consciousness, but they can also affect one’s ability to enjoy their favorite foods by making chewing a difficult task.

Full mouth restorative treatments will of course improve the aesthetics of your smile, especially if you’ve been missing teeth or suffering from a misaligned bite. We find that our patients are more confident showing off their smiles after a restoration or a makeover — which releases dopamine and serotonin and can improve overall quality of life.

Full Mouth Restoration Treatments 

Full mouth restorations can include a range of procedures, from filling cavities to replacing missing teeth. Your doctor will sit down with you to discuss the end goal and the most effective path to reach this goal.

Steps in the restoration process may include:

  • Treating periodontal disease
  • Balancing bite issues
  • Repairing chipped teeth
  • Aligning crooked teeth
  • Replacing teeth

Restorative care takes many shapes and forms. Residents of Bend like to live active lifestyles, which can lead to a multitude of accidents. Whether you’ve found yourself on the wrong end of your bike’s handlebars or you took a tumble on the ski hill, seeking restorative dentistry doesn’t have to be scary.

Ponderosa Dental Center provides fillings, same-day crowns, and a range of oral surgeries. Full mouth restorations aren’t complete in a single visit or procedure, so we want you to feel comfortable and relaxed when you visit us. Dr. Graff doesn’t believe in dictating care to you. Instead, take the reins and help us help you.
