FAQ

What is Smile makeover?

Also called full mouth restoration or rejuvenation, full mouth reconstruction involves a treatment plan for completely restoring oral health, comfortable oral function, and, in some cases, esthetics. Treatment can include restorative, cosmetic, prosthetic, periodontal, and TMJ procedures, as well as specialized care, such as root canals, orthodontics, oral surgery, and implant placement. Each full mouth restoration treatment plan is unique, because it's based upon the patient's needs and desired outcome.

Who requires Smile makeover?

Dr.Vijay Deshmukh evaluates patient’s overall health and oral condition before suggesting restorations.This procedure is generally recommended for people with extensive damage such as
The need for Smile makeover may result from:

  • Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
  • Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
  • Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding.
  • Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite (occlusion).

How long does full mouth reconstruction take?

Treatment time depends upon the scope of the treatment plan, patient compliance, and how quickly a patient recovers after procedures. After a thorough oral evaluation and discussion, your dentist should be able to provide a treatment timeframe. If you need treatment completed in a particular amount of time, be sure to let us know your expectations at your consultation.

Am I too old for full mouth reconstruction?

No one is "too old" for good oral health and comfortable oral function. Age can, however, be an important factor in treatment planning, because elderly patients often have health issues that must be considered in a full mouth reconstruction plan. For instance, if the doctor determines that a patient may not do well undergoing surgery, he or she may recommend mini dental implants, instead of traditional implants, for denture retention. Don't allow age to keep you from a healthy mouth and comfortable oral function. A competent dentist will be able to work with you to develop an appropriate, effective treatment plan, regardless of your age.

Does full mouth reconstruction hurt?

With modern dental anesthetics and sedation, no dental procedure has to hurt. Your dentist will recommend the appropriate level of medication for your comfort. Some patients experience short-term oral discomfort following a procedure. Your dentist may suggest over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers to take after treatment, for your comfort.

How long will full mouth reconstruction last?

The longevity of treatment results will depend greatly upon your oral health, overall health, oral hygiene, and compliance with doctor's instructions. Dental materials are also a factor. Porcelain veneers, for instance, may last two decades or more; dental bonding to correct the same issue may only last five to ten years.

Will full mouth restoration address my jaw pain and stop my headaches?

If you suffer from chronic migraines, headaches, pain in the jaw, head, neck, shoulders, or back, tell your dentist. He or she can assess your occlusion and jaw joints to determine whether TMJ disorder (TMD) is causing your symptoms. Other common symptoms of TMJ disorder include: popping or clicking jaw joints, inability to open and close the mouth completely, tingling fingers and toes, chronic teeth grinding (bruxism), and unexplained tooth wear.

Do kids ever need full mouth reconstruction?

Children can require full mouth reconstruction. Common causes are baby bottle mouth (decay across front teeth) and injury. A child who needs full mouth reconstruction should see a pedodontist (children's dentist).

Do dentists use laser surgery during full mouth reconstruction?

For minimally invasive dental and periodontal procedures. A soft tissue laser can treat periodontitis, reduce gum tissue for cosmetic purposes, and perform biopsies. Hard tissue lasers can prepare teeth for restorations, clean a tooth's root canal, and trim bone tissue. Patients tend to heal promptly following laser surgery, and lasers offer an unparalleled level of precision.

What Procedures Are Needed for Full Mouth Restoration?

Dr.Vijay Deshmukh and the team of specialists working on your full mouth reconstruction can determine what procedures are needed for your specific case. All possible procedures that might be required for your case and under what circumstances will be explained to you.

Initial Discussion

Your first appointment with a dentist should involve a discussion,examination, x-rays,diagnosis and treatment plan.

Exam and Diagnosis

We record cases by taking digital photographs of a patient's full face, as well as a close up of the patient's smile. These pictures can be compared, after treatment, with photos of results for a before-and-after presentation.

Records and Models

X-rays will be captured, a panoramic x-ray and 2D or 3D x-ray will also be taken.For 3D x-ray a patient if required,will be referred to a radiography center. Impressions will be recorded for study models for treatment planning and preliminary fittings of restorations and prosthetics.

Creating a Treatment plan

Once study of your case is done, including your personal preferences and needs, dental and health records, images, and models, we present you a treatment plan. You will probably have options for various treatments.

Working with Specialists

As Smilex is a team of specialists, the patient's treatment plan is created and the pertinent portions are submitted to a specialist. Under the guidance of the full mouth reconstruction plan, the specialist will perform his or her part of treatment.

Phased Treatment Plans

As it sounds, phased treatment involves breaking up a treatment plan into smaller parts. Full mouth reconstruction might be divided into two to five parts, or more. Phased treatment can provide the patient with recovery periods between phases.

Results for Smile Makeover

Before starting your full mouth reconstruction plan, a goal of achieving certain results will be determined. Your compliance with the treatment schedule, home care, and recovery requirements will have an effect on treatment outcome. If you follow the dentist's instructions and treatment progresses as expected, full mouth reconstruction should achieve the results you desired.
