Full-mouth reconstruction basically is rehabilitating an individual back to normal. You're going to see normal form and function. Usually, the folks that require full-mouth reconstruction are those that are missing numerous teeth. And also, they have damaged teeth. They may have periodontal conditions, they may have infections such like that. So those teeth are removed, implants are placed, teeth that are going to be maintained will be salvaged. And we should do a full mouth with the crown and bridge treatment. And here again, it takes someone that has been feeling bad about themselves. You improve their health and also improve their appearance and self-esteem and improve their quality of life. Full-mouth reconstruction pretty much pulls in many disciplines in dentistry, whether it be gum treatment, periodontics, endodontics, dental implants, crown and bridge. It pulls all these together to make the person's mouth whole again and improves their overall oral health, their physical appearance, the way they function and their self-esteem. Full-mouth reconstruction is absolutely a life-changing experience.
