The Role of Dental Implants in Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is a complex and comprehensive dental treatment that aims to restore the functionality, aesthetics, and health of a patient’s entire mouth.

What does Full Mouth Reconstruction Involve?

Full mouth reconstruction involves a combination of dental procedures, such as crowns, bridges, veneers, fillings, and dental implants, amongst others. Among these procedures, dental implants play a crucial role in full mouth reconstruction.

How Are Dental Implants Used?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from titanium. These implants are then surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a strong and stable foundation for artificial teeth, bridges, or dentures to be attached to. Dental implants have become a popular choice for patients who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or disease, as they provide a natural-looking and long-lasting solution to tooth loss.

In full mouth reconstruction, dental implants are used to replace missing teeth or to support a full set of dentures. They are especially useful when several teeth are missing or damaged beyond repair. Dental implants are placed strategically in the jawbone to support a fixed or removable prosthesis, depending on the patient’s needs.

What are the advantages of Dental Implants in full mouth reconstruction?

Dental implants offer several advantages in full mouth reconstruction, including:

Stability: Dental implants provide a stable and secure foundation for artificial teeth, bridges, or dentures to be attached to. This allows patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, without worrying about their prosthesis slipping or falling out.

Durability: Dental implants are designed to last for decades with proper care and maintenance. They are made of biocompatible materials that integrate with the jawbone, providing a long-lasting and natural-looking solution to tooth loss.

Improved oral health: Dental implants prevent bone loss and gum recession that can occur when teeth are missing. They also help to preserve the remaining natural teeth, as they do not require the removal of healthy tooth structures, unlike traditional bridges or dentures.

Aesthetics: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, improving the aesthetics of a patient’s smile and facial appearance.

Convenience: Dental implants eliminate the need for messy adhesives or daily removal, as with traditional dentures. Patients can care for their dental implants just like their natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing.

What is the process for a full mouth reconstruction?

Typically, when a patient attends requesting implant treatment, there’s a disease process present. This may be a broken tooth, infection or the presence of gum disease. Whilst it is possible to extract these teeth and place an implant directly into the socket this increases risk factors and the chance for an implant not to integrate.   

For most cases, it’s advised that the failing teeth are removed and a temporary denture provided to allow for any infection to clear. This also allows for new healthy bone to fill the socket.  

The goals and expectations of the patient will be discussed, and if this is the right treatment, a customised treatment plan will be developed that meets their specific needs.
