Full Dental Rehabilitation Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a full mouth rehab cost?
The price range is considerable because there are so many options. The price of a full mouth of upper and lower dental implants is higher than dental bridges and crowns. The only way to know what to expect is to meet with Dr. Gardner. He will perform a complete oral exam, take digital 3D images to determine which options are best for you, and review pricing at an initial consultation.
What is the difference between a smile makeover and full mouth reconstruction?
Both procedures can utilize a wide range of dental treatments, including implants, crowns, bridges, gum grafting, veneers, and more. However, a full mouth restoration focuses on whole-mouth help and improved function. It is considered essential for restoring function and improving your health. A smile makeover is a cosmetic procedure focusing on improving the appearance of your smile and is an elective procedure.
Is full mouth rehabilitation covered by insurance?
You may qualify for full or partial coverage for full mouth reconstruction depending on your coverage limits and whether your insurer considers the procedure medically necessary. Your insurer may cover some types of restoration but limit material choice, such as paying for dentures but not implants. Our office will work with you and your insurance company to ensure maximum coverage.
How long does full mouth reconstruction take?
Any full reconstruction is time-consuming, but the results are dramatic and worth the time investment. Implants take several months because of the healing time required, but dentures take only a few weeks. You may have to stagger some treatments while others can be done all at once. It is impossible to predict how long reconstruction will take without an evaluation and consultation to discuss what results you are seeking.
