About Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Full-mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment strategy performed to improve the function, health, and appearance of patients with multiple oral health needs. This process often combines two or more dental services to repair issues involving the teeth, gums, and jaw for improved biting, chewing, and speaking abilities and restored self-confidence. Our highly skilled general dentists offer custom full-mouth reconstruction at Advanced Dentistry of Centre County that may include dental fillings and prosthodontics, like crowns, veneers, bridges, dental implants, and dentures. Certain reconstruction procedures may also include gum or bone grafting, or root canal therapy. If you have several areas of your mouth that require dental care, we invite you to schedule a visit at our State College, PA office to learn how full-mouth reconstruction can improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
"This was our first visit to Advanced Dentistry since the new staff and Doctor have arrived and they exceeded our expectations. Our new hygienist Natalie was very professional, kind and informative. We have been a patient in this location for many years sometimes flying over 6,000 miles to get treatment and the new doctor, Dr. Kwon was personable, knowledgeable and thorough. We were very happy with our visit and will continue as patients in the future."- D.C. / Google / Jul 09, 2021

Is a Full-Mouth Approach Right for You?
Full-mouth restoration may be ideal if you have complex or multiple dental needs, or have been putting off dental care for some time. You may be an excellent candidate for full-mouth reconstruction if you have one or more of the following oral health concerns:
- Tooth loss in any amount
- Widespread tooth decay
- Broken, cracked, or badly worn teeth
- Jawbone loss or a receding gumline
- Large fillings or old restorations
- Hereditary disorders, like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (very small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth)
In more advanced cases, loss of bone in the jaw due to tooth loss or other causes might have caused sunken cheeks or changes in facial profile and appearance. Full-mouth reconstruction is customized to each individual and can restore your teeth, gums, and jaw to their former shape, size, and appeal. Whatever your comprehensive treatment needs might be, dental reconstruction can revive your appearance, function, oral health, and quality of life when performed at the skilled hands of an expert, like our dentists at Advanced Dentistry of Centre County.
What Is the Treatment Process?
After a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and jaw, our dentists will help you determine if full-mouth reconstruction is right for you. Your personalized treatment plan will be made based on the state of your own teeth, gums, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), facial muscles, and bite. Our dentists will review your options for care to make sure your treatment strategy meets your needs and goals. Once your treatment program is created, our team will go over exactly what to expect throughout your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your procedures. To enhance your comfort, sedation dentistry techniques can be paired with your visits as needed. In general, a full-mouth reconstruction may be completed over the course of a couple of weeks to several months, depending on your unique plan. We will schedule your treatments with time in between to let your mouth recover before moving forward with the next step in your plan.
After Full-Mouth Reconstruction
After every procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan, our dentists and team will describe what to expect and how to take care of your mouth. You might experience minor swelling or discomfort after certain procedures, like implant placement, that may make it tough to chew. In these instances, we may suggest eating a soft food diet and taking over-the-counter pain relievers to improve your post-treatment comfort. Keeping up with proper brushing and flossing each day and regular dental cleanings and checkups during and after your care can help you maintain your renewed oral health, function, and appearance for many years to come.
Insurance Coverage for Treatment
At your consultation, our dentists will design your personal treatment strategy according to your objectives, needs, and budget. We will then review your insurance benefits and assist you in maximizing your coverage. Advanced Dentistry is a provider for the Nittany Dental Network and a number of other plans. Our practice also accepts several payment methods, including flexible financing through CareCredit, to help make any uncovered portion of your care fit easily within your budget.
