Do you have several dental issues affecting your quality of life?

A full mouth reconstruction addresses multiple concerns like tooth loss, tooth decay, and gum disease to restore your oral health. Dr. Clint Newman and Dr. Thomas Underwood can customize your plan at their Nashville, TN, office to meet your every dental need.

What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction can address issues such as:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Gum Disease
  • Damaged Teeth
  • Missing Teeth

How You Can Benefit from a Full Mouth Reconstruction

The benefits of having strong, healthy teeth are invaluable. A full mouth reconstruction allows patients to smile, talk, and chew without pain or worry. 

Patients who undergo a full mouth reconstruction can enjoy: 

Restored Function

Missing, decayed, and damaged teeth might make even biting into an apple impossible. A full mouth reconstruction can promote proper jaw movement, improve dental hygiene, and allow you to eat and speak comfortably. Our dentists can completely restore your mouth's function through a full mouth reconstruction treatment plan. 

Improved Health

Not everyone realizes just how influential our mouth is on the rest of our body’s health. Full mouth reconstruction has been linked to improvements in weight, sleep, head pain, and even heart disease. Of course, bad breath is also much easier to manage with a healthy mouth.

Enhanced Confidence

A rehabilitated smile allows patients to speak more clearly and smile without worrying about what others think. When your teeth are healthy, your smile will look better. We can also incorporate cosmetic treatments to further enhance your smile's appearance.

What Could My Treatment Plan Include? Potential Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures

Our Nashville, TN, dental office offers several dentistry options to restore oral health and function. Our dentists will listen to all of your dental concerns to determine which treatments will be best to meet your goals. Your full mouth reconstruction treatment plan could include:

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to treat cavities. Our dentists will remove the decayed portion of a tooth and fill the hole that is left. This helps protect the integrity of the tooth by preventing the decay from spreading. Our dental fillings can be tooth-colored to blend in with your surrounding teeth.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are porcelain caps used to restore a broken or decayed tooth. Our dentists will remove the damaged portion of your natural tooth, then place a crown that blends seamlessly with your surrounding teeth to give you a healthier, natural-looking smile. A dental implant can support a crown if a patient needs the entire tooth replaced.

Dentures are a restorative treatment that can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Traditional dentures sit on your gums and can easily slide out of place. Our Nashville practice offers implant-supported dentures that function just like your natural teeth.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge can replace multiple consecutive missing teeth. This lifelike restoration bridges the gap between two natural teeth and blends seamlessly with your smile. Our Nashville practice also offers bridges supported by implants for extra stability.

Determining Candidacy

A full mouth reconstruction involves an extensive set of procedures, so it is important to be as informed as possible about the risks and requirements. Generally, patients who are candidates for a full mouth reconstruction need to repair severe damage to their teeth.

Patients experiencing one or more of the below problems may be candidates for this dental procedure.

Decaying Teeth

Tooth decay can pose a serious threat to the health of your teeth. Cavities are usually just the first sign of decay. If left untreated, cavities can lead to a root canal infection and tooth loss. A full mouth reconstruction can address any tooth decay and prevent it from getting worse.

Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can affect your oral function and overall oral health. For those who qualify, implants are typically the best solution to replace any missing teeth and restore your smile.

Damaged Teeth

Severely damaged or worn teeth can create a misaligned bite and have a lasting impact on your oral health. A full mouth reconstruction can remove or replace a damaged tooth to keep your jaw in proper alignment.

One of our dentists will review the state of your teeth and gums during your consultation to determine if a full mouth reconstruction is right for you.

What To Expect During Your Consultation

The first step to a full mouth reconstruction is a consultation at our Nashville, TN, practice to speak with either Dr. Newman or Dr. Underwood about your dental concerns. During this visit, our dentists will specifically assess the condition of your:


They will assess any decay, cavities, heavy wear, or cracks to determine which dentistry treatment will be needed.


Your gums will be inspected for deep pockets and other irregularities. Unhealthy gums suffering from periodontal disease will most likely need to be treated first.


Orthodontic care may be required before additional reconstructive work if misalignment is causing you pain or wearing down your teeth.

Full Mouth Reconstruction
vs. Smile Makeover
What Is the Difference?

Though they sound similar, a full mouth reconstruction focuses on the health of your smile while a smile makeover focuses on your smile's aesthetic. 

Full Mouth Reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction is implemented for the sake of your oral health. It can include dental fillings, crowns, and implants to prevent further damage and restore your smile.


A smile makeover focuses on your smile's aesthetic appearance and is a combination of elective dental procedures like veneers, teeth whitening, and dental bonding

Once your smile is healthy, our dentists can make cosmetic upgrades. A full mouth reconstruction cannot always fix concerns that require cosmetic dentistry, like veneers to hide staining.

Frequently Asked Questions About Full Mouth Reconstruction

Q. How much does a full mouth reconstruction cost?

A. Because a full mouth reconstruction is fully customized to your unique needs, it is impossible to give an accurate quote without an initial consultation at our Nashville office. During your consultation, your dentist will craft your custom restorative treatment plan, and we will then be able to provide you with an accurate quote so you can plan and budget. 

Q. Does a full mouth reconstruction hurt?

A. No. We will ensure you are completely comfortable before any treatment begins. For dentistry treatments like crowns and fillings, the area will be thoroughly numbed. Our Nashville dentists also offer sedation dentistry options for those who need an extra level of care. 

Q. Can I also undergo cosmetic dentistry treatments like veneers or teeth whitening as part of my full mouth reconstruction?

A. This depends on your needs and whether your teeth are healthy enough to safely undergo cosmetic procedures. We want to ensure a healthy foundation before any cosmetic work. However, in many cases, restorative treatments like dental crowns can also improve the appearance of your smile. During your initial consultation, your dentist will discuss your goals and help determine if cosmetic treatments can be included as part of your custom treatment plan.
