It is normal to have questions when it pertains to full mouth reconstruction in Doylestown. The process, timeframe, expectations, and post-operative care are all vital components to understanding and preparing for a new smile. This is why Dr. Kandov and our team are committed to transparent communication with our patients. Below, you will find a list of frequently asked questions for you to review.
There is no set timeline, as your treatment plan is fully customized based on your needs. From start to finish, it can take as little as one day or as long as one year. Many factors must be considered, including the severity of your oral health problems, how many teeth must be treated, and what your desired smile goals include. Also, based on the recommended services, you may or may not undergo consecutive treatments (i.e., root canal followed by a dental crown).
It is always the goal of Dr. Kandov and our team to ensure that every patient remains comfortable and stress-free. This is why you can expect more complex dental care to include local anesthesia to numb the area before surgery. Also, sedation dentistry is an option should you feel anxious about your upcoming treatment.
While it is natural to feel some soreness and discomfort following any dental procedure, you can rest assured we will give you tips to follow at home to help manage your pain (i.e., avoiding hot or cold beverages, consuming soft foods, and getting plenty of rest).
You’ll likely need to eat softer foods immediately following your full mouth reconstruction. Eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, mashed potatoes, and warm soups will help your mouth to heal quickly because there is no additional pressure being placed on your jaw joints, teeth, and gums.
Once your mouth is fully healed, you’ll notice a dramatic difference in how you’re able to eat all your favorite foods. Even with customized restorations (i.e., dental crowns, bridges, veneers, etc.), you will have a fully functional smile and a stronger bite. It is important, however, that you limit your consumption of sugars and starches to prevent cavities and reduce your risk of gum disease.
No matter the type of treatment you received, you should be sure that you maintain optimal oral hygiene following your full mouth reconstruction. This includes brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and using ADA-approved mouthwash regularly. You’ll also need to keep your regular six-month dental checkups and cleanings with your cosmetic dentist in Doylestown. This will allow Dr. Kandov to review your restorations, check for any signs of decay, infection, or damage, and keep your smile moving on the right track.
You’ll find it helpful to give up bad lifestyle habits, such as using your teeth to open packages, eating ice, biting your fingernails, smoking, and even chewing on inanimate objects.
