Candidacy for Full Mouth Reconstruction
Any patient with multiple oral health issues can qualify for full mouth reconstruction. This treatment can address:
Damaged or Decayed Teeth
Whether you have cavities, broken or worn teeth, or dental damage due to trauma, we can restore your smile and your oral health with a variety of restorations, including fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. Plaque on the teeth can irritate the gums, leading to gingivitis. If left untreated, periodontitis develops, which damages the tissues around the tooth roots.

Commonly Combined Procedures for
Full Mouth Reconstruction
There are several different procedures that can be included in a treatment plan for full mouth reconstruction. Here are just a few that are offered at our Beaufort, SC practice:
Bridges are a traditional solution for one to three consecutively missing teeth. These restorations consist of two dental crowns, which are bonded to the natural teeth on either side of the space, and artificial teeth that “bridge” the gap to restore health, function, and aesthetics. Like crowns, bridges can be made from a variety of materials.
A crown is recommended when a tooth has moderate to severe decay or damage. This tooth-shaped cap fits over the entire structure, offering added strength and protection. Crowns can be placed on front or back teeth, and can be fabricated from a variety of cosmetic materials, including ceramic, zirconia, and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). Crowns can also be attached to dental implants to replace a single missing tooth.
Patients who are missing one or more teeth can be considered for dental implants. These threaded titanium posts are placed into the jaw during a surgical appointment. Implants can be restored with crowns, bridges, and even dentures. When maintained properly, dental implants can last decades, and often the rest of your life.
Mild to moderate tooth decay can be addressed with a dental filling. During this procedure, your dentist removes any decayed or damaged portions of the tooth and fills the void with a tooth-colored composite resin material. Composite fillings blend in with your smile, offering cosmetic advantages over silver amalgam restorations.
Even though we prefer to save natural teeth whenever possible, sometimes tooth removal is necessary. We use gentle, advanced techniques to extract the affected tooth and clean out any associated infection. If you are considering a dental implant in the future, a bone graft may also be placed to preserve the bone ridge.
Full-Arch Teeth Replacement
MANY OPTIONS AT David P. Babb DMD
Traditional dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for centuries. Modern prostheses can be crafted from a variety of high-quality materials, including acrylic, nylon, metal, and even ceramic. While partial dentures replace several missing teeth in sporadic locations, full dentures replace an entire arch.
Many denture wearers complain that their appliances shift and slip over time. This is due to changes in the underlying bone that can result in a loose-fitting prosthesis. While traditional dentures rest atop the gums, their implant-supported counterparts can be attached to dental implants, offering maximum stability and security.
Some individuals do not qualify for standard dental implants due to bone loss in the jaw. During All-on-4® treatment, your dentist places four implants strategically, two vertically at the front of the jaw, and two at an angle near the back of the jaw. A fixed full-arch restoration is then attached, offering permanent, lifelike results.
