Benefits and Risks of Full Mouth Reconstruction
When dental problems arise, oral health can sometimes be restored with the assistance of a single dental treatment. However, it is not uncommon for multiple issues to be present at once, and for patients to require several restorative dentistry treatments. At his dental practice, which serves Brookline, MA, Boston, MA, and surrounding areas, Dr. Daniel Whiteman offers full mouth reconstruction to improve the health and appearance of the smile.
Full mouth reconstruction combines multiple dental procedures to address each patient’s unique needs. Prior to undergoing treatment, patients should consider the benefits and risks of full mouth reconstruction. Here, we provide an overview of the advantages of full mouth reconstruction, as well as the potential drawbacks.
Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction effectively treats a wide range of structural and cosmetic concerns. The procedure is recommended to patients with multiple dental issues because of the many benefits it provides. Some of the most notable benefits of full mouth reconstruction include:
- Customized care - Full mouth reconstruction is not a “one size fits all” type of treatment. Each treatment plan is created with the patient’s oral and cosmetic needs in mind. Any combination of dental treatments can be included in full mouth reconstruction, as is necessary to restore the health and beauty of the smile.
- Convenience - When multiple dental treatments are necessary, the thought of returning for numerous dental treatments can be daunting. Full mouth reconstruction stages dental treatments in a way that is most convenient, to minimize dental visits, recovery time, and costs.
- Safe and comfortable treatment - At our Brookline dental practice, we utilize the most advanced dental technology to make full mouth reconstruction as safe and effective as possible for our patients. We also offer multiple sedation options to allow patients to undergo treatment in complete comfort and ease.
- Effective treatment results - Perhaps most important of all, full mouth reconstruction is effective. The procedure eliminates oral health concerns to restore oral function and prevent further dental complications, while also addressing cosmetic concerns to enhance the appearance of the smile.
Risks of Full Mouth Reconstruction
The risks of full mouth reconstruction are minimal, and are far outweighed by the benefits of treatment. Because we use the latest dental techniques and technologies, patients can expect treatment to be safe, comfortable, and effective. While minor side effects are likely, it is extremely rare for patients to experience any complications following treatment.
Depending on the exact procedures included in full mouth reconstruction, risks may include infection, treatment failure (for example, dental implants may fail to fuse with the jawbone), or nerve damage. Fortunately, the risk of these types of issues is very low, especially since we perform a thorough consultation to ensure that patients are good candidates for treatment. As long as patients carefully follow all post-care instructions, they should recover from full mouth reconstruction without any issues.
