Full mouth reconstruction, often referred to as full mouth restoration, encompasses a thorough treatment plan tailored to rehabilitate the structure, functionality, health, and aesthetics of the teeth and gums. This involves an assortment of procedures such as implants, crowns, teeth whitening, veneers, and more, which may be performed by restorative dentists or specialists like periodontists, endodontists, oral surgeons, and orthodontists.

6 Tips for Dental Restoration Cases

To ensure that your patients leave with a healthy and radiant smile they can take pride in, follow these tips on enhancing full-mouth dental restoration cases.

1. Establishing a Clear Timeline

A full mouth reconstruction might necessitate phased treatment plans, which could stretch over several months to a year. While phased treatment allows your patients some recovery time, it might also lead to scheduling and payment complications. It's essential to devise a specific treatment timeline in advance to avoid unexpected hurdles, such as a patient moving away or changes in insurance.

2. Tackling Potential Risks

Older patients or those with heart conditions, autoimmune diseases, or other medical considerations may face elevated risks during dental procedures. Addressing these issues during the initial consultation will facilitate the development of a treatment plan best suited to the individual’s condition. It is also imperative to communicate with patients who smoke or consume alcohol about how these habits can jeopardize the outcomes of a full mouth restoration.

3. Comprehensive Evaluation and Bite Optimization

The full mouth restoration process initiates with an exhaustive evaluation of the patient’s dental health, medical history, and treatment objectives. This is followed by a thorough examination and diagnostic imaging of the mouth. During this phase, it is crucial to take an accurate impression and ascertain the correct bite. Aligning the patient’s facial midline with the dental midline, and employing the bite stick technique to determine the cant and horizontal incisal edge position of the central incisors is vital. A well-defined bite is the cornerstone of any full mouth reconstruction.

4. Selecting the Right Dental Lab

The dental laboratory you collaborate with is pivotal in delivering top-tier restorations for your patients. It is vital to have a dental laboratory that can skillfully create each restoration to your specifications with minimal adjustments required. Consistency in case results is paramount and should commence with a dental laboratory that adheres to the 10 fundamentals of excellence.

5. Optimal Materials for Restorations

Materials used for designing restorations and prosthetics will usually be dictated by your practice. For unparalleled aesthetics, tooth-colored ceramics or Zirconia are recommended. In PRO-Craft's experience, these three Zirconia products deliver both remarkable strength and aesthetics:

  • All Z Monolithic Zirconia: PRO-Craft manages the tinting and color with a unique system that results in a more translucent and natural-looking product.

  • All Z Plus High Translucent Solid Zirconia: A multi-layered material that incorporates aesthetics into the incisal third of the anteriors, offering the desired incisal action with mammelons and translucent edges.

  • PRO Z Full Layered Zirconia Crowns: A fully layered system employing microair technology to achieve the best aesthetics and strength simultaneously.

In regions where teeth endure significant force, especially the posterior part of the mouth, metal or porcelain fused to metal may be needed. At PRO-Craft, our technicians are well-versed in the PK Thomas tripodization technique. We utilize various percentages of gold content, ranging from type II to type IV (semi-precious to high noble), and our traditional quality and precision is embedded in every restoration we produce.

6. Setting the Standard for Full Mouth Restoration

A full mouth restoration addresses a plethora of patient concerns including missing teeth, spacing or crowding issues, decayed teeth, failing dental restorations, gum disease, malocclusion, bruxism and more. Once these issues are resolved, a patient’s oral health and smile are significantly enhanced. Through meticulous preparation, attention to detail, and collaboration with a competent dental lab, you can ensure outstanding, long-lasting results for your full-mouth dental restoration cases.
