Some patients have so many damaged, decayed, or worn-down teeth that they’ve forgotten what their smiles originally looked like. When there are so many dental issues to contend with at once, oftentimes it just isn’t possible to address them all with just one treatment. But even in such dire situations, it’s never too late to pursue a healthy, brilliant smile. Dr. Cobb is happy to use full mouth reconstruction in Odessa to restore all kinds of grins no matter how “broken” they are in the beginning. Call our office today to learn more about the process and how it works. 

Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for Me?

The purpose of a full mouth reconstruction is to repair all the teeth in the mouth to improve their function, restore oral health, and enhance appearance. The procedures used to carry out this process will vary from patient to patients since the exact issues will be different in every case. You may be a potential candidate for a full mouth reconstruction if your smile has sustained any sort of severe damage or decay that affects multiple parts of your mouth. Not only is this highly recommended for oral health reasons, but you may also improve your confidence once all of your cosmetic and structural dental issues have been dealt with. In order to maintain the results of a full mouth reconstruction, you must be ready and able to commit to a strict oral healthcare routine once the treatment is complete.

The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process

All full mouth reconstructions start the same way: with a consultation. After we’ve examined your teeth, taken the necessary X-rays, and considered any conditions such as gum disease that will need to be addressed before treatment can begin, we will provide you with a list of procedures that can be used to fix your mouth. This may include the placement of dental bridges or implants in order to replace missing teeth; we also might recommend cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers and dental bonding to correct any cosmetic imperfections. Naturally, the timeline of the entire process and the exact steps you’ll need to take all depend on the procedures involved. Be sure to ask any questions that are on your mind during the initial consultation so that you’re fully informed from the outset.

You can consider the full mouth reconstruction process to be highly customizable. Naturally, that means the price is subject to change as well. You can count on us to be transparent regarding how much you’ll have to pay for each step of the procedure; cost and payment options will be discussed at length during your very first appointment so as to avoid unwelcome surprises later down the line. Dental insurance and financing can be used to help pay for the individual procedures making up the reconstruction process. You can reach out to our team at any time if there’s anything you want to clarify.

Full Mouth Reconstruction FAQs

When considering full mouth reconstruction in Odessa, Dr. Cobb and our team want you to feel completely confident in your decision. We know this is a big step, but it will have you seeing and embracing a healthier, more beautiful appearance. As a worthwhile investment, you’ll be able to freely showcase your smile to others without any fear or hesitation. But to help calm any worries or nerves, we are here to answer your questions. Below, you’ll find a list of inquiries posed by our patients over the years. If you do not see yours listed, please contact us to schedule an appointment.

Do I need full mouth reconstruction?

The only way to know if you need full mouth reconstruction is to schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Odessa. It is during this visit that he will evaluate your smile and determine the severity of the problems as well as the different services that will be beneficial to restoring your appearance.

If you’re unhappy with your smile and its ability to function properly, there’s a good chance you’ll be considered a good candidate for treatment, especially if you need extensive restorative and cosmetic care.

Does getting full mouth reconstruction hurt?

Dr. Cobb’s goal is to always ensure your safety and comfort, which is why you do not need to worry about pain during your procedure(s). Should you require complex treatment such as the placement of dental implants, you can rest assured that local anesthesia will first be administered to numb the appropriate areas of your mouth. Should you feel anxious about your treatment, Dr. Cobb does offer nitrous oxide to help you feel more at ease.

You can expect, however, there to be some mild soreness and discomfort following your procedures, as your mouth will need time to heal. The good news is that you’ll receive an extensive list of post-operative instructions. This will explain what to take to curb the pain as well as which foods to eat and avoid, and the type of oral hygiene routine you will need to adopt.

How long does a full mouth reconstruction procedure take?

Each case is different, as many factors can determine the timeline for treatment. From how many teeth must be treated to which services will help you achieve your smile goals, there are several variables Dr. Cobb must consider. He must also determine if the procedures can be completed at the same time or if they must be done consecutively.

If you have an upcoming event or big celebration that you want your smile to be ready for, make sure to mention this to Dr. Cobb during your consultation. This information will help draft the treatment plan in a way that meets your deadline.

I’ve had a full mouth reconstruction – Is there anything I can’t eat?

Immediately following surgery, you’ll need to stick to a soft food diet. This includes items like yogurt and eggs. However, once your mouth is fully healed, you can return to eating all your favorite foods. You’ll be able to enjoy a durable bite thanks to your customized dental crowns, veneers, or any other restoration you received. The only thing you need to be mindful of is consuming too much sugar and starch (as these can cause cavities) as well as biting down on things that are extremely hard and crunchy (i.e., hard candies), as they can damage your smile.
