Which types of treatment are included in a full mouth reconstruction plan?

- Root canal therapy
- Invisalign or Six Month Smiles
- Tooth extractions
- Gum disease treatment
Are there sedation options available if I must sit in the dentist’s chair for a prolonged period of time?
Yes! Because some of these treatments do require hours spent in the dentist’s chair, we are pleased to offer patients three types of sedation: oral conscious, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation. Depending on your individual needs as well as your oral and overall health, our team will discuss which solution will be the safest and most effective to ensure your comfort during your appointment.
What makes a person a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction?
You will need to schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist in Gainesville to learn if you are a qualified candidate for full mouth reconstruction. During this visit, you can expect us to evaluate your oral and overall health. Most patients recommended for this type of care have multiple damaged (i.e., cracks, chips, breaks), decayed, or missing teeth. Also, if your gums are in poor health or your bite is misaligned, you may be eligible for full mouth reconstruction.
Will dental insurance pay for full mouth reconstruction?
Dental insurance will agree to pay for treatments that are designated as “medically necessary.” Because full mouth reconstruction can often include cosmetic services, these (i.e., veneers) will typically not be covered by insurance. Our dental team will work with your insurance carrier to determine what is eligible for coverage and how much you can expect to pay out-of-pocket for your treatment. If you are unable to pay upfront for any services not covered by insurance, you can apply for flexible financing through CareCredit or Lending Club. By enrolling in a low or zero interest plan, you can break up the cost of your treatments into manageable monthly installments that make it easy for you to stay well within your budget while pursuing a happier, healthier smile.
