Full & Partial Mouth Reconstruction
If your teeth are stained, decayed, damaged, or missing, our dentists can transform your smile with full and partial mouth reconstruction. By combining two or more dental procedures, we can restore your entire mouth including your teeth, gums, and bite.
Our full and partial mouth reconstruction treatment includes several procedures ranging from restorative to cosmetic: dentures, dental implants, TMJ therapy, and cosmetic dentistry.
It Starts With Your Free Consultation
If you’re looking for the best way to replace your missing teeth, dental implants could be right for you. The implant process begins with your free consultation with Dr. Burneson. He’ll examine your smile using cone beam imaging technology. He’ll also ask you some questions about your treatment goals so we can find the solution that’s right for you.
If you decide to restore your smile with dental implants, it only takes a few more steps to complete the process:
- Dr. Burneson will surgically attach the implant fixture. This is a minor procedure that we perform right here in our office. The titanium fixture is the section of the implant that works like the root of a natural tooth to hold the implant in place.
- Through a process known as osseointegration, the bones in your jaw will develop a secure bond with the fixture, creating a strong foundation for your new tooth. This process takes about three to five months to complete.
- As soon as your body is completely acclimated to the implant fixture, you’ll return to our office and Dr. Burneson will attach your attractive porcelain crown. Your new restoration is completely unnoticeable because it’s custom-made to match the natural shape and color of your surrounding teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many teeth can be replaced with dental implants?
You can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a whole arch of missing teeth with dental implants. You don’t even need one implant for every missing tooth. For example, as few as four implants can be used to provide a full, permanent set of upper or lower teeth.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
You won’t feel any pain during your procedure because you’ll be provided with an anesthetic and dental sedation is also an option. There will be some swelling and discomfort following the procedure, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen. Ice packs are also helpful.
Are dental implants expensive?
Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing your teeth, so it’s not surprising that the initial cost of implants is higher than restorations such as dentures or bridges. But they last years longer than the alternatives and they also enhance your oral health. When viewed as a long-term investment in your health, comfort, and well-being, the cost of dental implants is competitive with alternative treatments.
How do you care for dental implants?
Implants require the same type of care as natural teeth: daily brushing and flossing, along with regular dental checkups and professional cleanings. Although implants are resistant to decay, the gum tissues around them can become inflamed or infected in the absence of good oral hygiene. With proper care, dental implants should last a lifetime.
Can my body reject a dental implant?
Overall, implants have a success rate between 90 and 95 percent. Furthermore, implants can’t be rejected because they contain no living cells or genetically coded material. Implants can fail to take hold, but it’s very rare. The titanium fixture that holds your implant in place is completely biocompatible and allergies are highly uncommon.
