Full Mouth Reconstruction with Dental Implants
If you ask any dentist why they chose dentistry as a profession, the answer will be very similar: “Oral health is an integral part of overall health. By doing good dentistry, we help patients to maintain proper oral hygiene, eliminate any dental pathologies that may lead to systemic issues and affect overall health. 3-6 month recall is a good way to bypass any serious dental problems. We are always happy to get another 5-star review from a long-standing patient. After completing another successful 209 NYC full mouth reconstruction, there is a greater sense of accomplishment. A patient with severe dental & possibly systemic problems regains full function, a beautiful smile, and self-confidence.”
Full mouth rehabilitation is the time when all the years of schooling, residency & decades of practice are put to the test. The dentist must create and deliver a proper full mouth reconstruction plan that restores full function to the mouth. To do this successfully many factors have to be considered by the clinicians and patients alike.
What is full mouth reconstruction with dental implants?
Full mouth rehabilitation, also known as full mouth reconstruction or restorations, is a process of restoring one’s mouth with severely compromised teeth, gums, and missing teeth. The goal of the reconstruction is to return full function to the mouth, i.e., being able to eat well. And of course, dentistry is always about giving patients a beautiful smile. A smile is what everyone notices first. Whether it is a209 NYC delivers full rehabilitation or a smile makeover, our goal is always to finish with a beautiful smile or a “Celebrity Smile,”( if that’s what you want)!
What kind of full mouth rehabilitation procedure is performed during treatment?
Depending on the issues we are addressing, full mouth rehabilitation can include just about any dental treatment or a combination of several dental procedures. Some of the most common procedures performed in reconstruction process include:
- Dental implants, implant crowns, and implant bridges to restore missing teeth
- Dental implants and implant supported dentures, all-on-4 or all-on-8 to restore edentulous mouth
Full mouth reconstruction for missing teeth with dental implant
The treatment options vary based on the number of missing teeth needing replacement. Below we will give a quick overview of each option; you can find detail explanation for each procedure on the designated service pages.
Full mouth rehabilitation with implants & implant supported crowns
This option is suitable for patients who have few missing teeth. Without causing unnecessary damage to healthy teeth, dental implants and implant crowns are an excellent restoration option. However, if neighboring teeth have large fillings or extensive decay restoring teeth with a traditional dental bridge may be a valid alternative.
Full mouth rehabilitation with implants & implant supported bridge
Full mouth reconstruction of multiple missing teeth can be achieved with dental implants and implant bridges. By placing just a few implants, an expert implant specialist, like Dr. Wang, can provide support for a large implant bridge. Also, if a whole span of front teeth are replaced, the patient will have an opportunity to choose the exact shade of the porcelain.
Full mouth rehabilitation with implants & implant supported dentures
If a patient is edentulous, in the past the only option for a full mouth reconstruction was full removable denture. It is still an inexpensive alternative to restore teeth in the arch. Unlike implant supported dentures, removable dentures have a significant number of drawbacks, like poor retention and need for adhesive, inability to eat well; it promotes progressive bone loss.
Implant supported dentures or all-on-4 present patients with an option of complete rehab with a long-lasting restoration that is a s beautiful, as it is functional. In the last two decades, this technique has been mastered and proven to be conclusively the most cost-effective treatment. As we discuss in the Dental Implants, the biggest issue missing teeth cause is a progressive bone loss. Dental implants placed correctly help maintain healthy bone levels. The implant supported denture provides incredible retention, so eating and talking is no longer an issue. With a well-made implant denture, we will return your youthful smile, as in the before and after photos. To find out more, please read the case study about the patient above.
Full mouth rehabilitation with implant denture case study
A female patient, missing all her upper teeth presented to our office for a consultation looking for a more reliable way to replace her full removable denture. Over ten years ago we had restored her lower teeth with implants and implant supported bridge.
Not only she wanted a beautiful smile; she desired to have HER smile back. She brought a photo of her younger self to show us as an example. In the photo, she looked like a celebrity, and she had a gorgeous “Hollywood smile.”
Under the coordinated care of Dr. Jin Wang, our expert implant specialist, and Dr. Steven Kafko, top-rated prosthodontic-restorative dentist, the patient had four implants placed in her upper jaw. She also received a full removable denture modeled after her photo. This denture was used as a temporary prototype of her permanent implant denture. She had enough time to test the look and feel of the new teeth and when she was sure and satisfied her final implant denture was fabricated. Upon completion of the treatment, she left the office beaming with joy and had an extra denture, in case of an emergency. We stayed in the office gratified by the opportunity to have another super satisfied patient. Below you can see the photos and x-rays described in the treatment.

What are the causes for needing full mouth dental implants?
Peter Dawson is a renowned educator in dentistry and author of several renowned books on dental disease wrote: “patients lose their teeth in two ways: either the teeth break down, or the other supporting structures break down.”
Reasons for a full mouth rehabilitation with dental implants vary:
- Tooth loss to decay or periodontal disease
- Fractured teeth due to accidental trauma, like a fall
If you have experienced any of these, please come in for an extensive complimentary initial evaluation. Dr. Kafko will help you decide if a full mouth restoration is the best course of action.
Are you a good candidate for full mouth dental implants?

How long does full mouth reconstruction take?
The length of full mouth reconstruction depends on what is necessary for treatment. Some cases can last 12 months or more, while others may take less time. During the initial evaluation 209 NYC dentists will determine total time required to restore teeth based on dental necessities and desires of each patient.

What are full mouth reconstruction steps?
First and most important is proper diagnosis & treatment plan. After the health of the gums and jawbone is evaluated our implant specialist and cosmetic dentists create a comprehensive treatment plan to replace all missing teeth, restore teeth, and establish proper teeth bite.
The next step is the treatment. Dr. Wang completes all needed oral surgery procedures, extractions, bone grafts, and sinus lifts. In some instances when the jawbone is not compromised immediate dental implants are placed during the extraction visit. However, if it is not the case, healing is required before implant placement. After the dental implants achieve osseointegration (when implant integrates with the bone) the patient is then treated by a restorative dentist.

How much does NYC full mouth reconstruction cost with insurance?
If you have a dental PPO insurance, the fee for each procedure will be determined by your insurance. Part of the treatment, up to your insurance maximum, may be covered since the treatment is medically and dentally necessary and is not considered cosmetic. However, due to small annual maximum, the total cost of NYC full mouth reconstruction might be higher than your dental benefits. If it is medically sound, we may break up the treatment in two years to help you utilize your dental benefits.

If NYC full mouth reconstruction is needed as a result of an accidental trauma, like a car accident or a fall; or a disease, like diabetes or cancer, the mouth reconstruction occasionally may be partially reimbursed by medical insurance, if there are out-of-network benefits. Under this circumstances, our staff biller will reach out to your health insurance carrier for further details.
