If you are experiencing several dental health issues at once, a full mouth reconstruction performed at our Honolulu office by Dr. Rohinton Patel can fully restore your smile. A full mouth reconstruction combines several treatments at once to address all existing health issues and ultimately provide you with a smile that is complete, functional, balanced, and healthy. If you are suffering with a smile compromised by multiple health issues, we are here to help you. Contact us today to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Patel.
Assessing the Damage
Before a full mouth reconstruction can be planned and executed, Dr. Patel will thoroughly assess your oral health and consult with you to determine your goals and expectations. To achieve the very best possible results through your reconstruction, we will first ensure that your teeth and gums are free of infection. Tooth decay and gum disease are progressive, and if they are not treated first, your smile will lack the necessary foundation for further repair. Dr. Patel will also perform a comprehensive diagnostic exam to gauge the alignment of teeth and jaws, as well as the extent of damage sustained by other oral health tissues.

For patients suffering from multiple oral health issues, Dr. Rohinton Patel and his team at Hawaii Pacific Dental Group often recommend a smile makeover, also known as full mouth reconstruction. This treatment combines multiple procedures into a single plan. This allows us to ensure that all restorations are uniform and harmonious with your overall smile.
The Elements of a Full Mouth Reconstruction
The goal of a full mouth reconstruction is to create a well-balanced, properly proportioned, fully functional, and visibly attractive smile. The needs of every smile are different, and so are the combinations of treatments that help each patient achieve a healthy and balanced smile. Typically, the process involves:
- Cavity treatment and dental fillings
- Root canal treatment
- Gum disease treatment
- Dental crowns
- Inlays or onlays
- Partial or complete dentures
- Dental implants
- Bruxism treatment
The Benefits of Same-day Dental Restorations
Combining restorative procedures into a single treatment plan helps reduce the overall amount of time that a patient must spend in the dentist’s chair. Since many of our restorations can be designed, crafted, and placed in the same day, Dr. Patel can perform most full mouth reconstructions in less time than the patient may think. Thanks to innovative CAD/CAM imaging and our CEREC on-site ceramic milling machine, we can eliminate the waiting time required for a dental lab to fabricate and send us the finished dental restoration. Precise digital impressions of the patient's smile can be transmitted to the CEREC machine, guiding advanced milling tools in the creation of crowns, bridges, and more.
Rebuilding Smiles with Expert Precision
Even if achieving a healthy and beautiful smile seems hopeless, we have the advanced diagnostics and treatments to help you. Dr. Patel excels at identifying all oral health issues, and recommending the treatments patients need in order to once again experience a healthy state of mouth.
