About full mouth reconstructions

Choosing to undergo a full mouth reconstruction is a big step. While undergoing this type of dental treatment is necessary for many people so they can experience good oral health, it is necessary for them to set aside the time. When it comes to how much time one will need to set aside, it simply depends on the reconstruction procedures that they will need to undergo. A shortlist of procedures include dental implants, dental crowns, dental bridges, dentures, periodontal treatment, inlays, onlays and dental veneers.

Recovering from a full mouth reconstruction

The information below includes beneficial tips that will help dental patients when they are recovering from a full reconstruction of their mouths. It is important for dental patients to understand that they must carefully follow all their dentist's instructions in order to experience a successful recovery.

Make wise food choices

Dental patients who have undergone multiple dental treatments in order to improve the overall health of their mouths will need to be careful when it comes to the foods and drinks they consume following their treatment. Most aftercare instructions require patients to only eat soft foods for up to seven days, as these do not damage any of the reconstructions now in the patient's mouth.

Try not to touch anything

While many dental patients will be tempted to touch the areas in their mouth that have undergone reconstruction treatment, this is to be avoided. When they touch these treated areas, it can cause problems, including infections. It is going to take time for the areas treated to fully heal. Touching the restorations can get in the way of one's ability to heal in a timely manner.

Do not try to do too much, too soon

It is important for full mouth reconstruction patients to be mindful of their activities after undergoing the reconstruction process. Even for those who start to feel better, it is important to refrain from engaging in any strenuous activities. The last thing that a dental patient wants is to experience any dental-related problems because they did not rest as much as they should have and/or engaged in strenuous activities too soon after undergoing treatment.

Bottom line

The above recovery tips will be beneficial for those who have chosen to undergo this type of dental treatment, as it is important for patients to experience a successful recovery. For those who have questions, asking them at their next consultation appointment is recommended.
