Can a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Improve Your Quality of Life?

By: Dr. Jeffrey A. Weller


A common misconception about full-mouth reconstruction is that it is reserved for patients simply looking to enhance the appearance of their smile. While the aesthetic benefits of a full-mouth reconstruction are certainly profound, there are a number of other things to be gained as well. For many patients, in fact, a full-mouth reconstruction can be life-changing — improving everything from their comfort to their appearance to their self-confidence and beyond. At Weller Dental in Hinsdale, IL, Dr. Jeffrey A. Weller performs full-mouth reconstruction treatment to help give patients the smile they deserve — and so much more. Keep reading to get a closer look at how a full-mouth dental reconstruction can transform your smile and boost your quality of life overall.

What is a full-mouth reconstruction?

A full-mouth reconstruction is typically performed to restore both arches (upper and lower) in patients who have severely compromised teeth, whether due to trauma, decay, neglect, wear and tear, or another factor. The details of a full-mouth reconstruction will vary from patient to patient based on the nature of their dental damage, any other dental or oral condition they may be facing, their desired outcome, and more. Some of the most common treatments, procedures, and dental restorations that may be included in a full-mouth reconstruction are:

  • Inlays and onlays
  • Bridges
  • Dentures
  • Dental implants
  • Dental crowns
  • Porcelain veneers

How can a full-mouth reconstruction improve my life?

With full-mouth reconstruction, patients can regain their ability to enjoy their favorite activities and even the simplest of everyday routines more comfortably and confidently, which can dramatically improve their health, happiness, and overall quality of life. Some of the most exciting potential benefits of undergoing a full-mouth reconstruction include:

  • More comfortable to chew and eat
  • Regain ability to eat favorite foods
  • Correct misaligned bite (occlusion)
  • Confidence in smiling, laughing, talking, and taking photos
  • Boost self-esteem
  • Improved cosmetic appearance of smile
  • Restore dental and oral health
  • Preserve or restore facial/jaw structures
  • Restore and safeguard dental and oral health

By addressing your missing or damaged teeth, changes in your facial structure, periodontal issues, and other dental and/or oral conditions, a full-mouth reconstruction can transform your smile and then some.

How long does it take to get a full-mouth reconstruction?

Because each full-mouth reconstruction is customized to align with the patient’s specific needs, the details of the procedure — including how long a full-mouth restoration takes — will vary from case to case. For some patients, full-mouth reconstruction can be performed in a few weeks or months, while other patients may require up to 6 – 12 months or longer to have their procedure completed. This can depend on the nature and extent of their concerns, their overall dental and oral health, the treatments and procedures included in their full-mouth restoration, and other factors. Following your initial consultation and examination for a Hinsdale, IL, full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Weller will walk you through a treatment plan and timeline that are created just for you. While full-mouth reconstruction will require a series of appointments over time, the life-changing possibilities are considered worth the wait.
