Full Mouth Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Restoration

Medically Reviewed by: Thomas K. Hedge, DDS

Full mouth reconstruction, rehabilitation and restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.

Full mouth reconstruction typically involves general or restorative dentists (performing procedures like crowns, bridges and veneers), and can incorporate dental specialists like periodontists (specializing in the gums), oral surgeons, orthodontists (specializing in tooth movements and positions) and endodontists (specializing in the tooth pulp).

The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:

  • Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
  • Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
  • Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding.
  • Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite (occlusion).

How the Process Begins

Finest Dental collapse described as ‘scandal’ by former dentist

Dr Charles Lister

Dr Charles Lister used to work for Finest Dental and described its collapse as “an absolute scandal”

The collapse of a chain of cosmetic dental practices was “the worst failure of any corporate dental body the UK has ever seen”, one of its former dentists has said.

Finest Dental closed all nine of its branches suddenly in February, leaving some patients mid-treatment and thousands of pounds out of pocket.

Dr Charles Lister, who worked at one of the clinics, told the BBC the practices’ collapse was a “scandal”.

Finest Dental has apologised.

The BBC spoke to 87 of the firm’s clients who between them had paid £540,344 for dental work that was never completed.

The dental chain closed its three branches in London and others in Winchester, Wokingham, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Leicester and Brentwood overnight last month.

Healthcare | Libertarian Party

Healthcare

Libertarians believe that healthcare prices would decrease and quality and availability of healthcare would increase if providers were freed from government meddling and control.

Virtually every person wants access to quality healthcare at an affordable price. Libertarians think the best way to achieve this is by removing government interference and enabling free markets.

Government inappropriately controls our healthcare in many ways:

  • Government and a handful of insurance companies have a virtual monopoly as payers. Because of this, they make most of the decisions about what kinds of healthcare are available.
  • Government regulates where, when, and who may open new healthcare facilities.
  • Government agencies greatly slow development of and access to new medicines, devices, and technologies that may improve quality of care and reduce cost of care.

Currently, the healthcare industry is virtually monopolized by the government and a handful of insurance companies. They hold the checkbook and wield it for

Finding a great dentist you can trust is like finding the right hairstylist or romantic partner: it may take some time, but it’s totally worth it. Dishonest dentists cost insurance companies $12.5 billion each year. And if you had unpleasant experiences in the dental chair as a child or younger adult, you need to find a dentist who understands your anxiety.

Fortunately, there are a lot of competent, caring dentists out there, and it’s possible to find one you’re comfortable with. Here are some tips on how to find the best dentist near you.

Ask Around

A good first step is to put the word out that you’re searching for a new dentist. Ask friends, family members, and colleagues who they go to for dental care and how they like their dentist. Post on Facebook that you’re looking for recommendations.
