We see countless patients every year who walk into our office with several dental problems, and they don’t know which one of them should be fixed first. Of course, Dr. Long and our team always like to share that we can address them all with a full mouth reconstruction in West Lake Hills. Combining restorative and cosmetic procedures into a cohesive treatment plan, this approach allows us to achieve amazing results while helping a patient save time on the journey toward their ideal smile.
Dr. Long typically recommends a full mouth reconstruction for patients who have several decayed, broken, or missing teeth as well as bite problems. Often, these issues are connected and influence each other, so rather than fixing each during separate visits, a full mouth reconstruction offers a more holistic method that considers the big picture as well as the finer details.
While every full mouth reconstruction and the particular procedures that go into it are different, they all start in the same way—a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Long.
This will give her a chance to examine a patient’s mouth, take various scans and images, and start coming up with a treatment plan. This may include crowns, bridges, dentures, veneers, dental implants, and any number of the services we offer. Each step will be laid out so the patient knows what to expect, and with their approval, our team can begin.
The procedures will be performed over the course of multiple appointments that will take anywhere from a few to several months to complete. The timeline will vary from person to person, but this will be laid out at the initial consultation so everyone is on the same page.
Because a full mouth reconstruction needs to be tailored to each individual patient, there is no set price that we can quote. It will be directly influenced by the procedures needed as well as other factors like insurance coverage and the necessity of outside specialists. Speaking of which, we are happy to work with several PPO plans to help offset the out-of-pocket costs, plus we offer low-to-no interest financing through CareCredit as well.
While a full mouth reconstruction can be quite an investment, the improvements it can make to a patient’s long-term health and confidence are simply priceless, which is why we will do everything we can to ensure your treatment is affordable.
