The mouth has 32 teeth out of which 28 have an active masticating function. Any dental treatment that involves work for more than 20 of these 28 teeth is considered a full mouth reconstruction. This will address not only dental or periodontal problems but also cosmetic considerations. Decay, fractures, misalignment, wear or missing teeth are frequent in full mouth cases. Patients who also have important difficulties to eat due to their dental problems are also candidates for these restorations. Even it if entails considerable work, the results are incredible. After the restoration, you´ll have teeth that look and feel better than ever before.
There are three types of reconstructive procedures. In situations where most teeth, although damaged, are salvageable, we can restore them with crowns, bridges, fillings, implants, root canals, veneers, partials, and periodontal treatments. Each case is unique and each plan is personalized accordingly. After a full-mouth restoration, your smile will be radiant and beautiful.
The second type of complete restoration is recommended when most teeth are in an unsalvageable condition and must be extracted. In these cases, an implant-supported denture, also known as All-on-4, can be used to permanently restore your smile.
The third type of full mouth reconstruction occurs when the patient is mainly interested in aesthetics and their oral health is in good condition. In order to have a radiant and aligned smile, we offer porcelain crowns and veneers. Our dentists are extensively trained in cosmetic dentistry and our patient testimonials avow our experience in this type of restoration. You will not want to stop smiling.
Treatments of this sort typically require seven days at our dental clinic. If they include dental implants, you can expect to come to our beautiful country Costa Rica twice. During the first visit, we can work on the surgical procedures and once the implants are integrated five months later work on the final restoration.
In order to know what type of reconstruction will be needed in your case, our team of dentists will examine you thoroughly and with the aid of x-rays, 3-D scans, pictures, experience, and considerable talent, we will create a treatment plan with all possible options. The full mouth restoration by definition entails work on all or most of your teeth, and will address function, health, and beauty factors. You can have all you need at our dental facility.
