"My husband and I have both been seeing Dr. Weller and Dr. Sultan for over a year since a recent move to Chicago. The office is well run, always on time, staff is super friendly, and the doctors are both exceedingly professional and do excellent work. We've both been seen now for basic preventative care and cosmetic work and are more than happy with the results of both. I was at the tail end of my invisalign treatment with another provider and wanted a second opinion about my results, and Dr. Weller spent way more time than needed examining my teeth and my records to talk me through my options and provide his opinion at no cost. This office cares about their patients and it shows - we highly recommend them."- S.C. / Google / Jan 13, 2023

Am I a Candidate for full-mouth reconstruction?
If severe dental problems, due to an accident, a medical condition, a habitual circumstance or dental neglect, are causing you discomfort and/or embarrassment, you may be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction. Sometimes referred to as reconstruction or rehabilitation dentistry, rejuvenation treatment may be necessary, not only to restore the aesthetic appearance of the smile but also to reconstruct the teeth and occlusion (bite) for functional and medical reasons.
If your teeth are worn down, broken or missing, functional problems related to the occlusion, jawbone, and other teeth can occur. Through a comprehensive evaluation including Digital Dental Radiographs, Digital Diagnostic Photos, and Diagnostic Models, Dr. Weller can provide a recommendation for treatment. A combination of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures may be included in the treatment plan.
In addition, you may have dental ailments or even a hereditary disorder like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth), which require extensive treatment. Dr. Weller might choose to replace older crowns, or just want to enhance your mouth for better comfort or health. In more complex cases, your degraded gums and teeth might have caused a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction may revive the whole face once the correct quantity of teeth are in place.
What can I expect after full-mouth reconstruction?
Following a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and jawbone, Dr. Weller might advocate full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment program will be made depending on the condition of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, facial muscles, and dental bite. Dr. Weller will discuss your therapy and sedation choices, and his own recommendations during your appointment to make sure your treatment strategy fits your wants and goals. As soon as your treatment program is made, he will discuss exactly what to expect during your full-mouth renovation and schedule your visits for treatment. Most often, a full-mouth reconstruction will require a few visits to Weller Dental. Dr. Weller will schedule your treatments with breaks in between to let you recover until the next step is started.
How long is recovery after full-mouth reconstruction?
After every treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction therapy program, Dr. Weller will describe what to expect and explain to you how to take care of your mouth. He may write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine that needs to be filled prior to your process. You might have some swelling or discomfort following certain processes, such as implant placement that can make it tough to eat, so a soft or liquid food diet might be most appropriate for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is done, you must keep your oral health with good flossing and brushing at home. Dr. Weller will also suggest dental examinations and cleanings to help maintain your oral health. Throughout your examinations, Dr. Weller can track the health of your own restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jaw.
does Insurance cover full-mouth reconstructions?
At your initial consultation, Dr. Weller can produce your own treatment strategy according to your objectives, needs, and budget. He will provide you various choices to make certain that your full-mouth renovation is easy to afford. Weller Dental takes multiple payments, such as medical financing. If you have dental insurance, we will contact your supplier to verify your policy benefits and determine your personal costs.
