Full Mouth Reconstruction for Restored, Healthy Teeth and Gums
This treatment approach restores optimal health, function, and form to your teeth, gums and bite. By addressing dental problems and deficiencies at the source, Dr. Konig's full mouth rejuvenation treatments not only improve the appearance of your smile but also improve any existing dental health problems and functional issues.
Your full mouth reconstruction is designed to address your individual needs and goals, but the scope of the procedure typically includes:
- Repairing damaged or broken teeth
- Replacing missing teeth
- Replacing old or damaged dental work and restorations
- Making sure the jaw joints are in an optimal position for comfort and function
- Correcting misalignment of the bite
Dr. Konig will recommend the combination of dental treatments and dental restorations that will work best for what you want to achieve. These procedures are then combined into the rejuvenation process, which could take only one appointment or several months to complete, depending on which treatments are chosen. During your initial consultation at our Houston office, Dr. Konig will carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw to determine which procedures will be necessary, enabling him to provide you with an upfront estimate of the time required to perfect your smile.
One of the goals of full mouth rejuvenation is to make your smile look great so that you can enjoy improved confidence and self-esteem. Feeling good about your smile is an important part of your self-image. But full mouth rejuvenation is much more comprehensive than aesthetic improvement alone. These treatments also correct functional and health-related issues related to restore complete comfort and beauty to your smile.
Addressing Jaw and Bite Issues
A common underlying cause of dental problems is occlusal disease originating from a misaligned bite. When your bite is misaligned, it means your upper and lower arches of teeth do not meet in an ideal position. As a result, the teeth begin to wear down and damage each other, which can lead to pain, discomfort, broken teeth, and poor tooth appearance.
Occlusal disease also affects the bones supporting your teeth and the jaw muscles. You may experience symptoms of TMJ disorder if your teeth are straining the temporomandibular joints. Full mouth rejuvenation by Dr. Konig can correct these problems by restoring a proper bite and TMJ relationship.
Issues impacting the jaw and bite that are commonly addressed during full mouth reconstruction include:
- Overbite and Underbite
- Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD)
- Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMD)
Depending on the specifics of your case, treatment options for these issues may include orthodontic options such as Controlled Arch Orthodontics™, myofunctional therapy, or an anterior growth guidance appliance. These treatments can, by turns, improve facial structure, eliminate TMJ symptoms including headache and difficulties chewing, and improve tongue positioning. In some cases, these treatments are used in combination to address multiple issues at once, though this is not always needed.

Functional Cosmetic Dentistry
Correcting Dental Problems at Their Source with Functional Cosmetic Dentistry
Functional cosmetic dentistry seeks to address both the appearance and health of the smile. This comprehensive approach is ideal for full mouth reconstruction because it allows Dr. Konig to address common cosmetic dental problems along with general dentistry issues that can impact the appearance and function of the teeth and gums.
Cosmetic options such as dental veneers and tooth bonding can be used in conjunction with other treatments for instant orthodontics, while porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays, and tooth-colored fillings can protect teeth weakened by decay or infection while honoring the natural coloring of your smile.
For patients with missing teeth, dental implants can be used to replace the missing root, working to prevent structural changes to the jaw. Implants can be restored with dental bridges, porcelain crowns, or properly fitted dentures, in many cases producing a more lifted appearance and serving as a non-surgical facelift for patients who may have experienced changes to facial symmetry and fullness following tooth loss.
Each patient is entirely unique, making each full mouth reconstruction unique as well. During your initial consultation, Dr. Konig will listen to all of your concerns, carefully examine your entire mouth, and provide you with honest information about your best treatment options. During this visit, we can also discuss financing options that can help make procedures affordable for every budget, along with a treatment plan designed to meet your individual needs and goals. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you, please call us today to learn more.
