Dr. Devlin and our team would be pleased to help you reap the benefits of full mouth reconstruction in State College. Before you schedule a consultation, however, you may want to learn more about the journey in front of you. That is completely understandable, and it is why we have put together the following list of FAQs about this service. If you do not see the information you were hoping for, give us a call. We look forward to speaking with you!

How Long Does the Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedure Take?

The timeline for full mouth reconstruction varies from patient to patient. It depends on which procedures you are undergoing, as well as the extent of those procedures. Some treatments, such as fillings and dental bonding, require just a single appointment, while others, like dental implants, take place over the course of several months. We will do our best to plan your care in an efficient way, and we will make an effort to perform multiple treatments concurrently when possible.

What Are the Full Mouth Reconstruction Steps?

The first step is a consultation with Dr. Devlin, an experienced restorative and cosmetic dentist in State College. Our team will learn about your needs, examine your mouth, and begin planning your treatment. We may recommend that you undergo a variety of procedures, perhaps including fillings, crowns, tooth replacement, and cosmetic services.

Once you get started with treatment, we will do our best to make sure you are comfortable as you travel on your journey toward a renewed smile.

How Long Will My Full Mouth Reconstruction Results Last?

How long your results last depend on which treatments you undergo and how well you care for your mouth. Dental implants may last a lifetime with proper care, while veneers and crowns have the potential to endure for 15 years or longer. Other treatments, such as fillings and bonding, may last for around 5 years or so. Teeth whitening can keep your teeth looking bright and radiant for anywhere from a few months to a few years.

Our team will coach you on what you can do to make sure your new smile stays as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Hurt?

Thanks to modern dental techniques, you can expect your procedures to be as comfortable as possible. For example, we may numb your mouth during certain treatments. In some cases, sedation may also be used.

Certain services can cause some soreness after they are completed. Sensitivity, swelling, and possibly even some bleeding may occur. Our team will give you instructions to help you enjoy a relatively easy and smooth recovery. For example, you may need to take pain medications, get plenty of rest, and adjust your eating habits.
