Get your smile and confidence back with full mouth reconstruction in Los Angeles
Full mouth reconstruction goes way beyond cosmetic dentistry or smile makeovers. The entire process combines a series of advanced restorative and cosmetic procedures that will reconstruct the smile and the face. At the office of Dr. Paul O’Malley DDS, one of our greatest joys is working with a patient to give them back their smile and their self-esteem through full mouth reconstruction.
Why you should consider full mouth reconstruction
Deciding to undergo full dental reconstruction is hard. The process can be lengthy, expensive, and at times, painful, but the alternative is often complete loss of teeth and facial structure. So, how does a patient decide if full mouth reconstruction is right for them? First, let’s look at the issues full mouth reconstruction addresses:
- Advanced erosion or wear of the teeth
- Severe misalignment
- Advanced tooth decay or gum disease
- TMJ issues
Patients who undergo full mouth reconstruction are typically suffering from several of the above conditions. The good news is with time, patience, and commitment, a healthy and beautiful smile is within reach.
What to expect from full mouth reconstruction
Every full mouth reconstruction begins with a lengthy consultation process to come up with a plan for treatment. Dr. O’Malley and the rest of the team will take the time to get to know you and create a plan to restore your smile.
From there, the first step is always to restore oral health. This will involve treating any gum disease and decay that are impacting the health and putting the patient at risk for further issues.
The next step will be to work on the reconstruction which can require periodontics, orthodontics, and in some cases, oral surgery. In all, the multiple phases can often take up to a year to complete.
If you have lost teeth or the natural bite due to decay, injury, or wear, there is hope with dental reconstruction. Call us today to learn more about how we can recreate your perfect smile.
