Full mouth reconstruction

The purpose of a full mouth reconstruction is to restore function of the teeth and mouth.  With that said, it also usually involves some cosmetic procedures.  Many times, patient’s that normally would not come in for cosmetic procedures end up getting them as part of their full mouth reconstruction.  The main difference between full mouth reconstructions and smile makeovers, is that a full mouth reconstruction is done with the purpose of treating and fixing dental pathologies of the teeth, and not just cosmetic concerns as in a cosmetic smile makeover.

Sometimes, one dental procedure is not enough. A full mouth reconstruction combines multiple dental procedures together in order to resolve any present pathologies as well as achieve that perfect smile.  A full mouth reconstruction is not a one-size-fits-all solution, or a specific procedure.  It is custom tailored to every patient’s individual needs and desires.  We take into consideration many variables when deciding on what procedures to include in a full mouth reconstruction.  The results of a full mouth reconstruction can be dramatic.  A full mouth reconstruction can permanently resolve any present pathologies and also give anyone that perfect Hollywood smile.  We love doing full mouth reconstructions as they let us express our artistic side, while we solve many dental pathologies.  No two full mouth reconstructions are exactly alike.

Our expert dentists at Sachar Dental NYC we will perform a detailed evaluation of your dental problems as well as their underlying causes.  These will all be addressed as we determine a treatment plan for what may  be your full mouth reconstruction. Virtually anyone that is experiencing multiple dental pathologies may be a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction.  A full mouth reconstruction may be indicated for anyone that wants to solve their dental problems while also improving the appearance of their smile.

A full mouth reconstruction very often results in a drastic improvement cosmetically as well as solving dental problems. It is amazing how a full mouth reconstruction can really improve your overall dental health, dental function, and dental appearance, and even reverse the signs of aging.  Throughout the years, we have had so many patients express that their full mouth reconstruction performed at Sachar Dental NYC has truly been a life changing event, and that they both look better, and feel better.  Patients often express so much gratitude and tell us that by improving their dental health and the appearance of their smile, it has increased their confidence and self-esteem.  A full mouth reconstruction can give you the look that you have always wanted, or restore the look you had when you were younger, while also solving all of your dental problems.

At Sachar Dental NYC, our general and cosmetic dentists will always take into consideration your appearance, while addressing your dental problems.  We combined our skills as general dentists and cosmetic dentists when determining a unique treatment plan for your full mouth reconstruction.  Every treatment plan takes into consideration your dental health, and all of your cosmetic concerns.  We start with a plan that will resolve all dental pathologies, and secondarily adjust the plan in order to produce a beautiful cosmetic result.

Cosmetic dentistry is an art form, and a full mouth reconstruction combines many of the general dental procedures and cosmetic dental procedure alternatives that we have.  With our extensive experience and training, we design a comprehensive plan for your full mouth reconstruction. 

There are various factors that we consider when planning your treatments.  We consider the condition of our patient’s teeth, as well as their overall health in general.  This includes any underlying medical conditions as well as dental pathologies.  We listen to our patients and also consider their psychological concerns and desires.  We evaluate and consider their bite and the load on individual teeth. We take into account your overall appearance, including your height and build, the shape of your face, and the existing appearance of your natural mouth and tooth structure.  And finally, we also take into account your financial considerations.

What is a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction is a general term used to describe any number of general dental and cosmetic dental procedures that are combined together, in order to achieve the goal of solving dental pathologies and problems, as well as producing an improved looking smile.  This goal is unique to each patient.  Some patients come in with specific complaints or pathologies that they know about.  Other patients come in for a general checkup where we determine what pathologies are present.  When it comes to cosmetics, some patients come in knowing exactly how they would like to look, and other patients ask for our expert opinion, and most end up with a combination of these two things. With multiple general and cosmetic dental procedures, we are able to address any number of concerns that one has with their dental health and smile.

At Sachar Dental NYC, many of the full mouth reconstructions that we do come from patients that are second opinions for a full mouth reconstruction.  This is not a coincidence, and there are many reasons for this.  Many patients are referrals from other physicians and dental specialists.  Our referring physicians know that we are ethical, and do not over charge our patients.  They also know that we are experts in the designing of a full mouth reconstruction, and possess the manual dexterity to make them come out great.  Many patients that come in for a second opinion for a full mouth reconstruction are amazed how we are able to use more conservative methods which allows us to charge less money as well as need less invasive procedures.  The cost of a full mouth reconstruction depends on how many procedures are done.  Our philosophy at Sachar Dental NYC has always been to perform the least amount of procedures, and the invasive procedures in order to achieve our goals.  This definitely applies to a full mouth reconstruction where many procedures are often necessary. 

Our expert dentists at Sachar Dental NYC we will perform a detailed evaluation of your dental problems as well as the underlying causes.  These will all be addressed as we determine a treatment plan for your full mouth reconstruction.

Choosing which procedures to perform during your full mouth reconstruction is truly an art.  The expert general and cosmetic dentists at Sachar Dental NYC are able to visualize the end result of your full mouth reconstruction before it even begins.  This allows them to choose what combination of general dental and cosmetic dental procedures would best suit your unique circumstances.

The first thing that we will do is listen to our patients concerns about their symptoms, what they are dissatisfied with, and what they would like to change.  This is an individual and unique situation for every patient.  A full mouth reconstruction starts with the goal of restoring function to the mouth such as being able to eat and speak and not experienced dental pain.  It also considers prevention of dental problems and stopping the progression of existing dental problems.  At the same time, we also address the goal of a perfect looking smile as well.  Most of all, we listen to our patients and align our goals with theirs.

What is the difference between a “smile makeover” and a “full mouth reconstruction”?

The terms “smile makeover” and “full mouth reconstruction” are both very vague.  The difference in using these two terms when discussing dentistry, is that they depend on different situations and different goals.  A smile makeover addresses cosmetic concerns, while a full mouth reconstruction may be medically necessary to address dental pathologies of the teeth, mouth or gums.  In a full mouth reconstruction, we also address cosmetic concerns while we solve your dental pathologies. Both a smile makeover and a full mouth reconstruction result in an improved appearance and function of the teeth.

What are the benefits of a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction can have many benefits, both emotional and physical. A full mouth reconstruction can resolve all of your dental problems as well as reverse the signs of aging, and improve your overall appearance.  We have many patients that express their gratitude that they look and feel younger and better, and have significantly increased self-confidence after their full mouth reconstruction.  It is amazing how one’s self-esteem can be improved through a full mouth reconstruction, while also restoring their dental health.

Besides the emotional benefits of a full mouth reconstruction, there are also many physical benefits.  Prior to addressing any cosmetic concerns, the first thing that we do is to eliminate any dental pathologies that may exist.  Every patient gets a thorough clinical examination and x-rays prior to the performance of any dental procedures to ensure that their dental health is optimized first.

Physical benefits of a full mouth reconstruction and problems that may be solved:

How long does a full mouth reconstruction take?

Because a full mouth reconstruction has so many variables, it is not possible to estimate the exact time it will take for a full mouth reconstruction.  A full mouth reconstruction can be done in a few weeks, or may take many months.  It depends on what procedures are included in your full mouth reconstruction. At Sachar Dental NYC, we always allot enough time for every patients’ appointments so that they never feel rushed.  We always work with our patients until they are completely satisfied and happy with the end results.

What are the different procedures that may be included during a full mouth reconstruction?

What are the steps of a full mouth reconstruction?

The first step in a full mouth reconstruction is your initial dental consultation.  During our initial visit, we will discuss all of the dental pathologies present as well as the things that you are dissatisfied with, and your desired goals.  We then start your “complete dental workup”. This includes a thorough clinical examination, x-rays and complete photographs of your teeth, smile, face and profile.  We take a mold of your teeth so that we can study them in three dimensions when planning our procedures.  We take a full set of x-rays in order to evaluate your tooth structure and determine any pathologies that are present.

At Sachar Dental NYC, we combine both a scientific and artistic approach when designing a full mouth reconstruction.  Once we have a mold of your teeth and photographs, we thoroughly evaluate your dental pathologies, and existing structures and anatomy in order to plan for your new smile.  We then use our training, expertise and experience to visualize the smile that we want to create.  We will then take the mold of your teeth, and using wax, we create a three-dimensional model of the smile that we desire.  Once this is done, we figure out which general dental procedures and cosmetic dental procedures will be needed in order to achieve this goal.  Often, we can get started right away.  When you come in for your next visit, we will show you this model, and discuss with you the procedures that we recommend in order to achieve that perfect smile.

Can any general dentist perform a full mouth reconstruction?

Unfortunately, not every general dentist is qualified to perform a full mouth reconstruction.  The ability to perform a full mouth reconstruction depends on the dentist experience and training.  Oftentimes, General dentists work with specialists including prosthodontist, implants all just and periodontists in order to collaborate to do a full mouth reconstruction.  Additionally, advanced training is often necessary. At Sachar Dental NYC, all of our general and cosmetic dentists have undergone extensive general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry training at Spear Education for Advanced Dentistry in Scottsdale, Arizona.
