Full mouth reconstruction is the rebuilding and/or replacing of all of the teeth in a person’s mouth. Dr. Rex Baumgartner typically recommends this service to those with functional mouth and/or teeth issues like cracked, broken, decayed or missing teeth. He and his dental care team are experts at reestablishing a functional bite, restoring missing teeth and fixing the overall jaw structure.
Full mouth reconstruction combines esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function and beauty of your entire mouth.
Providing comprehensive services for full mouth reconstruction
Here are procedures commonly used during full mouth reconstruction:
- Bone grafting
This procedure is used to enhance the strength of your jawbone so it can support a dental implant.
Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. They can whiten, reshape, resize and close gaps as well as correct stained, chipped or worn teeth.
- Dental implants
Dental implants are used to not only replace a missing or extracted tooth, but to also avoid jawbone issues in the future. Missing teeth can weaken the jawbone and lead to fracture or additional tooth loss because it can no longer support the remaining teeth.
Dental crowns are used to strengthen a cracked tooth or tooth that has been root-canaled. They can also be used to cover a natural tooth that is discolored or needs reshaped because it was cracked or chipped.
Treating our youths with cleft lip and cleft palate
Cleft lip and palate repair surgery helps to restore function to the lips and mouth. The required procedures for each patient depend on the severity and placement of the deformity.
In addition to treating his own patients, Dr. Baumgartner travels to Mexico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic each year to treat young children with facial deformities. He works tirelessly to reconstruct the normal anatomy and function of the lip and nasal passage. These procedures also repair the floor of the nose and properly align the maxillary segments (gum line).
