Restore Full Oral Function
Patients who suffer from multiple oral health problems may benefit from combining several restorative procedures into a single full mouth reconstruction. The customizable treatment restores function and comfort to your smile, while saving you considerable time and money, as well. Dr. Kenneth Bagby and Dr. Erica Stokke offer this comprehensive treatment for patients who live in and around Billings, MT.
Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
Due to the comprehensive nature of full mouth reconstruction, the treatment can deliver unique oral health benefits. First and foremost, this treatment allows our doctors to treat your dental problems on a reduced timeline. Rather than having to undergo several separate procedures at several separate appointments with potentially lengthy recovery times, patients can benefit from a shorter treatment timeline by undergoing multiple or even all of their restorative treatments at once. Full mouth reconstruction allows us to work more efficiently while still delivering the same high-quality results that our patients have come to expect.
Many of our patients describe the results as life-changing.
Full mouth reconstruction also makes it possible for patients to gain optimal oral health and relief from oral pain associated with tooth decay, infections, and other dental problems. While full mouth reconstruction is not cosmetic in nature, patients often find that they are much happier with the way their smiles look after treatment, as well.
Am I a Candidate?
Many of our patients seek this procedure due to the potential savings in time and cost. Our doctors may recommend full mouth reconstruction if you have:
- Tooth loss
- Advanced dental decay
- Dental infection
- Gum disease
- Worn-out prosthetics
- Dental trauma
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Multiple tooth extractions planned
Your consultation and exam at our dental practice may include a review of your medical history, a visual inspection of your teeth, x-rays, and a discussion about your oral health goals and past experiences at the dentist. If full mouth reconstruction seems appropriate, we can begin planning your treatment immediately.
A Look at the Timeline
How long your treatment takes will depend on which procedures you opt for. Depending on your oral health needs, Dr. Bagby or Dr. Stokke may recommend any of the following treatments:
- Dental implants
- Dental crowns
- Periodontal care
- Tooth extraction
- Dental fillings
- Treatment for malocclusion
Some of these treatments can be completed together during a single appointment, such as placing a dental filling or crown. Others, however, must be performed over the course of several months, such as dental implants and treatment for dental malocclusion. During your initial consultation, the doctor will recommend which is best suited to your needs.
After each treatment is completed, you will be provided with recovery guidelines. Full recovery will take anywhere from a few days to several months, depending on the number and type of procedures performed.
