Dr. Lugakingira Talks About Full Mouth Reconstruction
Are there several areas of your mouth that need treatment, including a gummy smile, missing or decayed teeth, gum disease, or ongoing jaw pain or headaches? If these problems have diminished your quality of life and left you in poor oral health or embarrassed to smile, you may be a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. Like the name suggests, a full mouth reconstruction takes the functional aspects of your teeth, jaw, and gums into consideration to comprehensively treat multiple dental issues and restore your healthy smile. As experienced oral surgeons, Drs. Mulokozi Lugakingira and Franklin Awah are specialized in treating issues related to the hard and soft tissues of the face and perform procedure involved in full mouth reconstruction on a regular basis.
Customized Treatment Planning
A full mouth reconstruction does create a beautiful, working smile, but our doctors first look at the functionality of your teeth, gums, and jaw as a whole. This ensures that not only your visible smile is cosmetically improved, but underlying issues like bit misalignment and gum disease that can harm your overall health are eliminated, too. During your consultation, we will complete a comprehensive evaluation of your mouth, take digital x-rays, and communicate openly about all aspects of your treatment options, including discussing relaxing sedation options.

- Tooth extraction
