By combining a number of restorative dentistry procedures, Dr. Rink can help rejuvenate your smile and restore your oral health.
What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment plan that combines a number of restorative dentistry procedures. Each of these procedures serves to rehabilitate dental function and aesthetics in patients suffering from multiple oral health issues. Dr. Rink customizes each treatment plan to meet every one of our patients' unique needs. Therefore, no two full mouth reconstructions are alike. Depending on your individual needs and goals, your treatment plan may include restorative solutions such as:
- Dental fillings or inlays or onlays to address cavities and minor damage
- Crowns for teeth with moderate to severe decay or damage
- Dental bridges to replace one to three missing teeth
- Dental implants and implant-supported restorations to replace one, several, or an entire row of missing teeth
- Extraction of badly decayed or damaged teeth
- Root canal therapy to eliminate infection from one or more teeth
- Periodontal treatments to address and manage gum disease
Dr. Rink uses quality, lifelike materials for all the restorations he places to ensure the end result is not only a strong and healthy smile but a beautiful one as well.

What Benefits Does it Offer?
Full mouth reconstructions offer several benefits. First, it allows Dr. Rink to address your smile as a whole, instead of individual pieces. As a result, he can restore your health and function in fewer appointments by using more effective and versatile treatments. Furthermore, these treatment plans are entirely personalized to meet your needs and achieve your cosmetic goals. No two smiles are alike, so no two full mouth reconstructions are alike, either.
Addressing oral health complications can give you a stronger and healthier smile. Replacing missing teeth and repairing those with damage or decay can eliminate discomfort and improve your overall bite. It can also reduce your risk of further tooth loss and other complications. Of course, the most obvious benefit is the aesthetic effect a full mouth reconstruction can have on your smile. At the conclusion of your treatment, you could enjoy a fuller, whiter, straighter smile.
What is the Treatment Process Like?
You will begin by meeting with Dr. Rink for a personal consultation. During this appointment, he will discuss your concerns and goals, and then perform a thorough examination. This may include various x-rays and other imaging scans to evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Then, he will make his recommendations regarding the specific procedure combinations from which you could most benefit.
Once you have approved your treatment plan, Dr. Rink can begin planning your procedures, which will likely take place in stages and require multiple appointments. He can then review an estimated timeline with you and schedule your first procedure. Treatment timelines vary significantly from patient to patient, depending on the procedures included. To enhance patient comfort during lengthy procedures, Dr. Rink offers sedation options.
