FAQ:  Full Mouth Reconstruction

  • On 9/02 I consulted a dentist for dentures and as in the past I was persuaded to do restorative except this time a complete oral reconstruction. On 5/03 it was completed and after approximately 1 month, veneers broke about one a month. Those were replaced with caps at tha dentist's expense. On 9/03 after complaining of pain since 4/03 an RCT was done through a crowned molar, finishing in 11/03. On 2/4/04 a corner of crown broke from weakening due to RCT. This molar had gum surgery and special prep prior to the first crown. I also have continuing problems with splint and suggested a neuromuscular dentist but my dentist said they are basically charletons. This 2 and 1/2 months is the longest I have gone without something falling out. Shouldn't I be stablized by now? How patient should I be? The dentist seems a bit testy, getting that attitude that doctors get when they wish you'd go away and seems bothered by my need for reassurance. I have approximately $20,000.00 invested so far. How much replacement work am I responsible for? ... Visitor from IL     (answer)

  • Full mouth restoration for ameliogenesis imperfecta: My son, who is now 16, was born with ameliogenesis imperfecta. He has veneers on his front teeth for cosmetic improvement in his appearance, and has had numerous gold crowns placed on root-canaled molars. The teeth below the crowns are decaying, and we are now having to have the old crowns cut off and new ones put back on. Before I go to all this expense, and pain on his part, would implants with dentures be a better alternative for this kid who brushes his teeth more than anyone on the planet? None of the dentists I took him to when we first found out he had this condition even knew what ameliogenesis imperfecta was. ... Visitor from WV     (answer)
