Full Mouth Restoration

Full mouth restoration is a rehabilitative procedure with multiple steps. Dr. Lebedoff will work in tandem with any other necessary specialists (such as an oral surgeon, orthodontist, or prosthodontist) to create a treatment plan and decide on the steps to be taken to restore your smile. Some trips to other dental offices may be required if a specialist is required for one or more steps of the process.

What is involved in Full Mouth Restoration?

Cosmetic dental reconstruction can involve any or all of the following:

Dr. Lebedoff will explain your course of treatment fully to you before it starts, and give you estimates on number of visits, skills of specialists involved, and total time needed for all procedures and recovery.

After Your Full Mouth Restoration

It can take time to get used to the feel of a new bite. Whenever your bite is altered or the position of the teeth is changed, it takes several days for the brain to recognize the new position of your teeth or to accept their thickness as normal.

It is normal to experience some hot and cold sensitivity. The teeth require some time to heal after removal of tooth structure, and will be sensitive in the interim. Your gums may also be sore for a few days. Don't be concerned if your speech is affected for a few days — you will adapt quickly and be back to normal in about a week.

You can use simple, effective measures to minimize discomfort after procedures. Warm salt water rinses (a teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water) three times a day will reduce pain and swelling. A mild pain medication (one tablet of Tylenol or Ibuprofen (Motrin) every 3-4 hours) should ease any residual discomfort. If extensive oral surgery is completed, your dentist will prescribe any additional required pain medication.

Maintain your New Smile

Instituting a strict at home brushing and flossing regimen and keeping all follow-up appointments is the best way to ensure your new smile will last.

Avoid foods and substances that can easily crack, chip or damage your new teeth (such as beer nuts, peanut brittle, ice, fingernails, or pencils) and don't chew sticky candies. Smoking will stain your new teeth, as will coffee, red wine, tea and berries.

If you are involved with sports, or if you find that you grind your teeth at night, ask us about protective mouthguards or nightguards.

If you continue to detect any high spots or problems with your bite after a week or two have passed, or if you experience pain, call our office at (918) 492-3003 so we can schedule an adjustment appointment.
