What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is an extensive treatment that involves repairing several or all of the teeth in a patient's mouth. This type of treatment and procedure is typically performed when a patient has severe damage to their teeth. Full mouth reconstruction can be helpful when teeth have deteriorated due to decay or injury, and a smile cannot be restored with cosmetic procedures.
