Full Mouth Reconstruction
As the name implies, full mouth reconstruction refers to rebuilding and replacing all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth.
Full mouth reconstructions combine esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function, and beauty of the mouth.
Who Requires a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Several people have dental problems throughout their mouths that must be treated comprehensively with a vision of a final result that improves both function and esthetics.
These patients may exhibit multiple missing teeth, many teeth with large fillings that are failing or showing decay, cracked or broken teeth, or badly worn teeth due to bruxism (teeth grinding) or other habits.
There is also a group of patients who were born with conditions such as Ectodermal Dysplasia, Ameliogenesis, or Dentinogenesis Imperfecta that will need extensive restoration of their teeth. These patients may be candidates for a full mouth reconstruction.
Treatment Options for a Full Reconstruction
In general, any dental treatment that affects all teeth in the mouth is called full mouth reconstruction or full mouth rehabilitation.
Some treatment options for trauma or oral cancer may require the patient to undergo a unique type of full mouth reconstruction that not only involves the replacement of missing teeth but potentially restoration of missing structures of the oral cavity.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ), when not functioning properly, can cause a tremendous amount of pain. The tissues behind the joint (retrodiscal tissues) have many nerves that run through them. Once they become inflamed, any slight pressure will cause pain and perpetuate the problem.
Treatment for TMJ
Treatment involves unloading these tissues to allow them to recover and try to avoid allowing the problem to recur.
Depending on your history and symptoms, your prosthodontist may recommend a stabilization/Occlusal Splint or deprogrammer (bite guard) to treat your pain.
This custom-made plastic device fits over the upper or lower teeth and is used to control the interaction between the top and bottom teeth and maintains the joint in a healthy position. Stabilization splints are the most common treatments for TMJ disorders, including facial pain. Facial or jaw pain in the chewing muscles or jaw joint is a common symptom of temporomandibular joint disorders.
Botox for TMJ Pain
For patients struggling with facial pain, getting effective therapy and treatment is challenging. Facial pain is a problem plaguing many patients, but few know how to ask for help and treatment. Dr. Paredes has received multiple levels of training through the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, utilizing botulinum toxin as an adjunct treatment for TMJ pain. This therapy may work on patients who suffer from TMJ syndrome, headaches, and orofacial pain.
What is next?
Once the TMJ pain has been resolved, the patient will have the option of fixing the problem that caused the pain, if this option is present.
The patient will go through a new evaluation, and Dr. Paredes will present a treatment plan.
