 It’s Never too Late to Straighten Your Smile

Braces as an adult? No way. At least, that was what I thought when my dentist told me that I was going to have to see an orthodontist about my crooked teeth. But my teeth were so misaligned that they were causing me pain when I chewed, so I decided to at least look into it. Turns out braces today are nothing like the ones my friends had when I was a kid. Mine were practically invisible, and I didn't need to wear them that long. I started this blog to encourage other people like me who are nervous about the prospect of wearing braces as an adult. My straight smile is so worth the trips to the orthodontist, and wearing braces was nowhere near as bad as I thought. Read on to find out more about how you can straighten your smile.

Understanding Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures

by Jacqueline Byrd

A full mouth reconstruction is a dental procedure that aims to restore the function, aesthetics, and health of your mouth. It is a comprehensive treatment that involves several dental procedures tailored to your specific needs. If you have extensive dental problems, such as missing or broken teeth, gum disease, or jaw pain, a full mouth reconstruction may be the best treatment for you. This blog will explore what happens during a full mouth reconstruction, the types of procedures involved, and what you can expect during and after the treatment.

Evaluation and Diagnosis:

Before starting a full mouth reconstruction, your dentist will perform a thorough evaluation of your mouth to determine the extent of the damage and devise a customized treatment plan. They will examine your teeth, gums, jaw, and the joints that control jaw movement to identify any underlying dental issues that may be causing your problems.


A full mouth reconstruction may involve a variety of dental procedures depending on your unique dental needs. Some of the common procedures involved include dental implants, dental crowns, bridges, veneers, and dentures. These procedures are used to replace missing or damaged teeth, enhance the look and functionality of your teeth, and address issues with the jawbone or gum tissues. Depending on your treatment plan, some of these procedures may be done over several weeks or months.


Before undergoing a full mouth reconstruction, your dentist will prepare your mouth to ensure that it is healthy enough to receive the treatment. This may involve dental cleaning, scaling, and root planing to remove any plaque or tartar buildup. In some cases, your dentist may recommend other procedures, such as periodontal therapy or bone grafting, to correct any issues with your gums or jawbone.


After undergoing a full mouth reconstruction, you will need to take some time to recover before returning to your daily activities. You may experience some pain and discomfort after the procedures, but your dentist will provide you with pain medication to manage the pain. Additionally, you may need to avoid certain foods and drinks for a while and adopt good oral hygiene practices to promote healing and prevent further damage.

A full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive dental treatment that can improve the health, function, and beauty of your smile. If you have dental issues, such as missing or damaged teeth, jaw pain, or gum disease, a full mouth reconstruction may be the best way to address these problems.
