Restore Health, Function, and Beauty to Your Smile with Full Mouth Reconstruction
Dr. Michael McCartney offers full mouth reconstruction for our Adel, GA, patients to comprehensively address multiple dental issues. Also known as full mouth rehabilitation, this treatment plan may include dental implants, periodontal treatment, dental crowns, and other procedures to dramatically improve your oral health, dental function, and appearance. Because treatment is so customized, Dr. McCartney will work closely with you to meet your individual needs and goals. Dr. McCartney has extensive experience in this type of treatment planning, as well as in the restorative and cosmetic procedures typically included in a full mouth reconstruction. We are passionate about renewing patients’ smiles, and we offer comfortable, modern techniques, such as sedation dentistry, to help ensure a safe, relaxed, and positive experience.
Reasons for Full Mouth Reconstruction
Patients typically seek, or are recommended for, full mouth reconstruction when they are experiencing pain and other complications from dental problems that have not yet been addressed. Contributing factors typically include ground-down or worn teeth, misaligned bite, and teeth that are missing or out of position. Correcting these problems is often critical to restoring the patient’s oral health and preventing more problems from occurring. Many patients have been suffering with oral health issues over a long period of time, and they like the idea of having a clear plan to return their smile back to the way it was meant to be.
The most important component of full mouth reconstruction is achieving a fully functional, healthy, and comfortable bite.
The first step in the reconstruction process is to meet with Dr. McCartney. He will ask you a variety of questions to gain an understanding of your dental concerns. He will also conduct a complete examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw. This may include x-rays, photographs, and other types of imaging or tests. Upon completing his evaluation, he will explain your potential treatment options. It is important to understand that Dr. McCartney has your best interests in mind. While he knows that patients may have time and/or budget constraints, any treatment compromises based on time and cost break the effectiveness of combining procedures. That said, he will work with you to develop a workable treatment plan that will give you the most benefit. Our practice offers financial options for any treatments that fall outside of your insurance coverage, including CareCredit℠ and our own in-house insurance. Our knowledgeable staff would be happy to discuss these with you as part of your consultation.
Treatments and Timeline
Since full mouth reconstruction is intended to be a comprehensive approach to addressing dental dysfunction, your treatments will likely be phased over a period of time. While Dr. McCartney can combine certain procedures into a single visit, other procedures will require healing time, resulting in multiple visits.
Based on your individual needs, your full mouth reconstruction may include a combination of any of the following:
- Dental implants
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Dental crowns
- Gum grafting
- Traditional or implant-supported bridges
- Periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing
Depending on your goals, Dr. McCartney may recommend combining your restorative treatments with one or more cosmetic procedures, such as porcelain veneers, to achieve your desired results. He will ensure that you fully understand your treatments, timeline, and cost before he begins any work.
Long-term Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
The most important component of full mouth reconstruction is achieving a fully functional, healthy, and comfortable bite. In addition to restoring health and functionality, Dr. McCartney will use high-quality restorative materials so you can also enjoy a beautiful smile. Full mouth reconstruction can improve your self-confidence and renew your outlook. Many patients feel relieved to finally address long-standing or serious dental problems, and it frees them to focus on other important things in their lives.
