"I Am So Pleased with the Outcome." Read Our 5-Star Reviews
I have been undergoing significant dental reconstruction over the last two years. The end is almost in sight, but I can say I am so pleased with the outcome. Dr. Butera and his associate Shawna are highly skilled in their profession and also warm and caring people want the best for their patients. I highly recommend them.View On Facebook
I have been a patient of Dr. Malament's since 1991-2. That, in and of itself, tells the story but I am also very fond of the staff that has been constant all these years too. Denise and Marybeth feel like family and the hygienist, Diane is superb. Dr. Malament is not just a first rate dentist but an artist.View On Google

What Is Included in a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
The purpose of a full mouth reconstruction plan is to optimize the health of the entire mouth, including the teeth, the gums, and the bite. In many cases, it is necessary to replace or restore every tooth in the mouth using a combination of dental services. In other cases, you may require treatment on just a few teeth.
A full mouth rehabilitation is a highly individualized treatment, so no two treatment plans are the same. Our team of prosthodontists designs personalized plans to meet your specific goals. Full mouth reconstruction can include a range of restorative treatments.
Cavities are one of the most common oral health issues. Mild areas of decay can be treated with dental fillings. Our dentists use tooth-colored composite fillings that blend in with your smile.
Larger areas of decay may need to be restored with an inlay or onlay instead. These custom restorations fit like puzzle pieces into your natural tooth structure to provide reinforcement.
In some cases, severe decay must be treated with a dental crown. These tooth-shaped caps fit over the natural tooth structure, adding stability and strength to broken or weak teeth.
Patients who have a gap in their smile due to missing teeth can opt for a bridge. Designed to replace one to three teeth in a row, bridges are supported by crowns that are attached to the adjacent teeth.
Our Boston, MA, prosthodontists create custom full and partial dentures. These appliances can be supported by the bone ridge or by dental implants to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. Once they fuse with the jawbone, they can be restored with crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants are the only treatment that can prevent bone loss—a consequence of tooth loss.
Jawbone atrophy is a common side effect of tooth loss. When this occurs, bone grafting can be performed to restore bone volume and density. Bone grafting can improve your eligibility for dental implants even if you have suffered from bone recession.
The upper molars rest just below the maxillary sinus. If these teeth are missing, the sinus cavity can collapse over time and the bone in the upper jaw can recede. A sinus lift can restore the bone tissue in the upper jaw in preparation for implants.
Patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth can choose from many different replacement options. In addition to traditional removable dentures, we also offer fixed restorations for optimal stability and oral health.
When the jaw joints are damaged or misaligned, it can lead to a host of other dental issues, including bruxism and tooth erosion. Our prosthodontists can create a custom oral appliance to realign your jaw, ease discomfort, and protect your smile.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Combining Procedures for the Best Possible Results
Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for Me?
Virtually anyone who wishes to address multiple dental health issues at once can benefit from full mouth reconstruction. Here are just a few of the dental issues that can be addressed by this treatment:
Damaged or Missing Teeth
Teeth can become damaged or fall out for a number of reasons, including disease and trauma. Most patients seeking a full mouth rehabilitation have multiple missing or badly damaged teeth.
Old Dental Work
Many full mouth rehabilitation patients also require the replacement of existing dental restorations that have worn over time. These include old metal fillings, discolored crowns, and excessively worn veneers.
Other Dental Concerns
In addition to providing full mouth rehabilitation, Boston Prosthodontics Dental Group can meet your family’s needs for superior general dentistry services. We can treat cavities, gum disease, jawbone loss, and TMJ disorders on-site as part of your custom treatment plan.
Can I Undergo Cosmetic Treatments?
Everyone wants a gorgeous, fully functioning smile. Many individuals ask us if they can include cosmetic procedures as part of their treatment. In most cases, we can enhance your results with whitening, veneers, and other cosmetic dentistry treatments as long as you are free from serious dental issues. Our prosthodontists can treat preexisting dental issues on-site to give you a healthy foundation for cosmetic treatments. If you are interested in enhancing your smile in addition to rehabilitating its health, talk to one of our dentists.
