If you are discussing options with your dentist, it might come up that you could benefit from a full mouth reconstruction. Initially, the full mouth reconstruction may seem like it’s the most expensive option. But it can actually save you money.
An Efficient Procedure
One of the benefits of a full mouth reconstruction is that it’s can be done efficiently. Because we’re planning for restoring the entire mouth, we can maximize our effectiveness while minimizing our efforts. For example, if you have several teeth that are failing, we can design a single dental bridge that replaces them all with fewer dental implants than if we replaced each tooth individually.
You’ll also spend less time in our office. Designing a full mouth reconstruction allows us to minimize your number of office visits. That not only saves you money, it saves you time, which is worth even more.
Head off Additional Damage
We only recommend a full mouth reconstruction if your bite is in a condition where you are going to face additional procedures in the future. Whether the issue is tooth decay, gum infection, or excessive wear from bruxism or TMJ, your teeth are being damaged and their condition is worsening.
By performing full mouth reconstruction now, we can stop some damage that will be done in the future. This may mean saving teeth that would otherwise be lost. You can save costs by getting a dental crown on a natural tooth rather than an implant to replace it.
It can even prevent damage to new restorations. When we restore damage to your teeth piecemeal, there is an increased risk that individual restorations may be damaged by problems in other teeth. If your teeth don’t fit together properly, it can damage new restorations. Infections elsewhere in the mouth can put dental implants at risk.
These effects can be prevented by designing a healthy, balanced full mouth reconstruction.
Reduce Medical Costs
If you are a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction, the odds are good that your oral health is having impacts far beyond your mouth. If you have gum disease, for example, it can contribute to other health problems, such as heart disease and diabetes complications. Treating your gum disease can save you thousands of dollars a year in treating these conditions.
Bite problems can also be costing you money. If you are getting treatment for neck pain, back pain, and other related conditions, a full mouth reconstruction can reduce your need for those treatments.
Don’t Forget the Benefits
It would be foolish to only consider the cost of the full mouth reconstruction and not talk about its benefits. Investing in a full mouth reconstruction will give you the beautiful smile you’ve dreamed of. You’ll get better cosmetic results because the procedures will all be designed to fit together and will use matching restorations.
Your full mouth reconstruction will be comfortable, saving you from the discomfort of your current bite. You’ll be able to eat with confidence, smile with confidence, and kiss with confidence.
And you won’t be worrying about what’s going to go wrong next: you’ll be able to relax and focus on the more important things in life.
Financing Can Help Bridge the Gap
We understand that even if it will save you money in the long run, it can be hard to pay for your full mouth reconstruction up front. That’s where financing comes in. We offer several financing options that will allow you to fit the full mouth reconstruction into your budget now. No-interest plans and other favorable terms can preserve the cost savings of full mouth reconstruction.
