What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

If you are suffering from a severely damaged smile – whether it is due to decay, periodontitis or an injury to the mouth – you can have your smile restored with a full mouth reconstruction at Corne Smith Claremont Cape Town Dentistry. At Corne Smith Dentistry, we offer our patients a full mouth reconstruction procedure that allows patients to take advantage of our expertise, by combining two or more restorative dental services.

A full mouth reconstruction is a customised treatment plan that targets several dental health issues at once, helping patients achieve a vastly improved smile. Each full mouth reconstruction is individualised and will be determined based on the patient’s needs, goals, and budget. If you decide that a full mouth reconstruction procedure is right for you, some of the treatment options you might choose, include:

Dental crowns – Crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that fully cover damaged teeth down to the gumline. They can be used to strengthen a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy, protect cracked and damaged teeth, and cover large fillings.

Dental bridges – Bridges close the gap between missing teeth with custom-made prosthetic teeth.

Orthodontics – If you have crooked or overly crowded teeth, or if your bite is not aligned properly, you may benefit from orthodontic appliances – such as Invisalign or braces – which straightens teeth by pushing them into an aligned position.

Dental implants – A dental implant is a biocompatible post that is embedded in the jaw bone, creating a stable base for a restoration like a dental crown or denture.

Dentures – If you are missing all or most of your teeth, traditional and implant-supported dentures are a great solution. Dentures provided by Corne Smith Dentistry look and feel incredibly natural.

Periodontal Therapy –If you suffer from gum disease, Dr Corne Smith will need to treat this condition before beginning any restorative work. A variety of treatment options are available, including deep cleaning, which physically eradicates bacteria from the gums.
