Excessive wear and tear or a general inability to visit the dentist over the years can leave you with reduced function, pain in the teeth and gums, and a damaged smile. Dr. George Tsangaroulis understands that life circumstances and even dental phobia can keep patients from getting the regular care they need to keep their smile in clean, healthy condition. Our compassionate and highly skilled cosmetic dentist can develop an effective full mouth reconstruction plan to gently eliminate any bacteria or disease affecting your mouth and help you reclaim the luminous smile you’ve always dreamed of. With full mouth reconstruction, you can address several different issues and concerns at once to help you achieve your goals faster, more efficiently, and within one all-encompassing treatment plan.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Candidates Full Mouth Reconstruction Options Full Mouth Reconstruction Process What is Full Mouth Reconstruction? Full mouth reconstruction is a combined dental plan consisting of multiple treatments chosen according to your unique concerns, giving you a completely personalized experience. Depending on the specific issues impacting your smile and dental health, full mouth reconstruction can repair damage, restore function, and sanitize the mouth of bacteria and disease — all with the goal of making your dream smile a reality. The timeline for full mouth reconstruction varies from patient to patient, and depends on the extent of your concerns. Missing and severely damaged teeth can take relatively longer to address, while replacing broken fillings and securing dental crowns may be completed in one or two office visits. Dr. Tsangaroulis can give you a better understanding of what to expect after evaluating your needs in a consultation. He also uses sophisticated smile imaging technology to give you a digital “preview” or simulation of what your results can look like after treatment! Who is a Good Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction? Full mouth reconstruction is usually most successful for individuals who have multiple issues related to the health or function of their teeth and gums. People who can benefit from full mouth reconstruction usually experience one or more of the following concerns: Multiple missing or severely damaged teeth Numerous teeth with decayed/failing fillings Signs of infection and/or periodontal disease Pain in the mouth or when chewing Malocclusion (bad bite) or loose/shifting teeth Cracked, broken, or badly worn teeth If you have several issues you would like to improve that are more cosmetic in nature — such as gaps, crooked teeth, discoloration, or chips — Dr. Tsangaroulis may recommend a Smile Makeover, which similarly combines multiple treatments, but addresses more aesthetic dental concerns. What are My Full Mouth Reconstruction Options? Dr. Tsangaroulis offers many services and high-quality restorations at his Greenwich practice that can help repair your smile. He often utilizes digital smile design (DSD) software to create a smile simulation of the potential results, allowing you to make changes to your treatment plan as needed and truly work with Dr. Tsangaroulis to achieve your desired results. Services included in full mouth reconstruction typically involve some combination of: Dental Implants Dental Bridges Dental Crowns Implant-Supported Dentures Porcelain Veneers Gum Disease Treatment Tooth Extraction What Can I Expect During the Treatment Process for Full Mouth Reconstruction? To conduct a full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Tsangaroulis will first perform an extensive exam with state-of-the-art digital screening technology, allowing him to identify all dental concerns—both seen and unseen to the naked eye—with optimal precision. Next, he will utilize advanced software to customize a treatment plan based on your unique needs and goals, enabling you to view 3D models of how your final results will look. Using these digital simulations, he will also create a physical diagnostic wax-up that not only provides further visualization of your new smile, but also serves as a blueprint for the creation of your final restorations. Once the exact treatment plan has been agreed upon, Dr. Tsangaroulis will send impressions and other case-specific information to a dental lab to have a custom PreNew® PreView mold created. When the mold is ready, you will be able to literally try on your new smile to get the most accurate sense of how you will ultimately look. If you are pleased and ready to proceed, Dr. Tsangaroulis will move forward with the creation and eventual placement of your restorations. The entire full mouth reconstruction process is typically completed over the course of multiple visits, with the exact number depending on the specific procedures employed. Throughout this time, Dr. Tsangaroulis and our team will do everything in our power to ensure you are comfortable, fully informed, and completely satisfied. Once all is said and done, you can expect a beautiful, healthy smile that looks natural and functions properly with long-lasting results. Full mouth reconstruction from Dr. Tsangaroulis can completely restore the function and appearance of your smile with stunning results.
