Full Mouth Reconstruction Process
We begin with a comprehensive examination in which Dr. Santos makes an in-depth evaluation of your mouth, including a complete assessment of your oral health with x-rays and impressions of your teeth and a physical examination. We examine the anatomy of your teeth, lips, jaw, and other facial features, so we can design your perfect smile. After the evaluation, we create a treatment plan for your full mouth reconstruction. It’s typical for full mouth reconstruction to require multiple visits and sufficient healing time. We partner with other specialists, such as periodontists (specializing in gums), oral surgeons, orthodontists, and endodontists (specializing in root canals), to ensure you receive the most comprehensive care possible.
