When a patient comes to us with complex, often painful dental problems or the desire for a dramatic smile makeover, it may take a combination of dental treatments and procedures to achieve the desired result. Dr. Brent Engelberg and Dr. Jennifer Mullarkey , both highly trained and experienced cosmetic and restorative dentists in Arlington Heights, can restore your dental health, the appearance of your smile and your confidence with a full mouth reconstruction.
A full mouth reconstruction is a personalized plan of treatment designed to replace or repair damaged teeth, soft tissue, or bone. Also known as a full mouth restoration, this comprehensive process will address all aspects of your oral health.
You may need to consider a full mouth restoration for the following reasons:
One or more lost teeth due to injury or disease
Severely worn teeth as a result of a temporomandibular disorder such as TMJ, teeth grinding or other concerns
Significant bite problems causing pain and discomfort
Dr. Engelberg or Dr. Mullarkey will combine cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry skill, carefully analyzing each individual case to determine the best course of action. In addition to repairing and replacing teeth, periodontal therapy or even gum surgery may be recommended to ensure healthy support for your restored smile.
A full-mouth reconstruction is a life-changing experience for many patients at our office, enabling them to regain their quality of life and sense of self confidence. In many cases, this process can help patients to keep as many of their natural teeth as possible, avoiding the need for full dentures.

Full Mouth Reconstruction What to Expect
The process will begin with a consultation to evaluate your dental health and discuss your personal concerns and goals to be considered in treatment planning. The amount of treatments or procedures that will need to be incorporated into your treatment will depend on your unique dental problems and desired result.
The next step will be a diagnostic visit to take digital x-rays, scans and impressions to be used in your treatment. If periodontal disease is an issue, this may be addressed first to restore health and create a stable environment for dental restorations.
Dr. Engelberg will work with you to create a suitable treatment plan and schedule for any necessary procedures, which may include:
Gum lifting or periodontal treatments
Short term orthodontics
When necessary, Dr. Engelberg will refer you to local specialists for procedures, including gum surgery and the surgical phase of dental implants.
