- You are looking for a streamlined and comprehensive way to get your oral health and function back on track (as opposed to getting just a few treatments to address the worst of your dental health issues).
- You want to enjoy an improved quality of life. Full mouth reconstruction has the potential to improve your emotional and physical well-being!
The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process
The full mouth reconstruction process starts with a consultation. Your dentist will examine your mouth, ask you about your goals for treatment, and start planning your treatments. Our offices feature Digital Smile Design software, so we will be able to give you a realistic preview of your results before you commit to anything.
Once your treatment plan is confirmed, we will get to work on renewing your smile. We may perform any of the following services as part of your full mouth reconstruction:
- Dental implants or other forms of tooth replacement to fill in empty spaces in your dental arches.
- Gum disease therapy to rid your mouth of harmful infections.
- Crowns, fillings, or other restorations to repair and fortify damaged teeth.
- Cosmetic services to help your smile look and feel its best.
Understanding the Cost of Full Mouth Reconstruction
The cost of full mouth reconstruction varies from case to case. It depends largely on which services you undergo, as well as the extent and complexity of those services.

Although full mouth reconstruction can seem pricey at first, it is a smart investment in your oral health that will provide many years of benefits!
Our team will do what we can to help you afford your care. For example, we accept many insurance policies. We are also partnered with CareCredit, a third-party lender that offers low-interest financing for dental services.

How Long Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Take?
The length of your treatment will be directly based on several factors. These can generally include the type of services you’ll require, the severity of your dental problems, and the number of issues you need to address. For many patients, this treatment option can take several months to even a year or more to complete, especially if you’re rebuilding missing teeth with dental implants or you have an oral infection to address. When mapping out your full mouth reconstruction plan, our team will be sure to streamline every step so we can accomplish your desired results as efficiently as possible.
Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Hurt?
One of our main priorities is to ensure you remain safe and comfortable throughout your treatment process. To do this, our team will be sure to administer local anesthetics to numb your mouth whenever necessary. This will typically be reserved for extensive treatments like fillings or dental crowns. For more complex procedures like dental implant placement or root canal therapy, we might even provide you with sedation dentistry to further minimize discomfort and boost your level of relaxation. This is also a good option for patients who usually feel anxious or uncomfortable while sitting in the examination chair.
What Will My Smile Look Like After Full Mouth Reconstruction?
It can be difficult to imagine how your smile will appear after full mouth reconstruction, especially if you’ve been struggling with poor oral health and/or decayed teeth for so long. The good news is, with our advanced technology, we can provide you with an accurate depiction of your new and improved smile before you’ve even undergone any procedures. Our team will take high-resolution images of your smile and edit them based on your preferred treatment options using our special software. This means you’ll be able to see how your smile will look in the end ahead of time, that way you can feel confident about the process.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Since full mouth reconstruction often involves restoration treatments, you can expect dental insurance companies to offer some level of coverage. If you’re receiving restoring damaged or missing teeth, or you need to undergo a minor procedure, then you may have 50-80% of the total cost covered. That said, every policy is different, and you may have deductibles and maximums to consider. Make sure to double-check with your provider about your policy. You can also speak with our team so we can help you navigate your plan and maximize your benefits.
