"I was in an emergency situation and needed immediate care. Had a painful infection in an important tooth holding my bridge in place. I have rheumatoid arthritis and was facing an infusion of a powerful biological medication the next day which lowers the immune system. I had never seen Dr Canesi before though my husband happily had been his patient for years. The doctor took me in, eased the pain and gave me a referral for needed Endodontist to complete the job and hopefully save my tooth. I love this dental practice and the compassion and professionalism of Dr Canesi and his entire staff. Thank you for calming my fears and taking such good care of of me.

"This practice is wonderful. I've never seen a hygienist who wasn't friendly, component and concerned with my comfort. The Dentists are conscientious and considerate and best of all collaborative. If my schedule doesn't mesh with my primary (Dr. Kitsos -DMD extraordinaire) one of the other partners step in and handle with ease. When specialty services were needed (endodontic surgeon) they were quick with an exceptional reference. Overall, a great place to get your dental care."- S.S. / Google / Sep 28, 2021

Can I Get a Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
You might benefit from a full reconstruction of your mouth if you've lost some teeth, have teeth with big fillings that need to be replaced, teeth with significant decay, or cracked, chipped, broken, or worn-down teeth. If you suffer from bruxism (grinding or clenching your teeth at night), have dental conditions or a genetic disorder, such as ectodermal dysplasia (teeth absent since birth), amelogenesis imperfecta (very small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth), you may also benefit from a full-mouth restoration. You may also just want to replace older crowns, or just want to improve your mouth for better comfort or health. In more complex cases, degraded teeth and gums may have caused a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction can revive the whole face once the correct amount of teeth are in place.
The Process of Getting Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Following an extensive exam of your gums, teeth, and jaw, we might suggest full-mouth reconstruction. We will create a personalized treatment plan, depending on the condition of your own teeth, gum tissue, temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, facial muscles, and bite. We will go over your treatment and sedation choices, as well as our own recommendations to ensure your treatment plan fits your wants and goals. Once your treatment program is created, we will discuss exactly what to expect during and from your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your appointments. Generally speaking, a full-mouth reconstruction will require several visits to Downtown Dental Partners – Boston, MA, with time in between to let your mouth heal until the next step is started.
Following Your Full-Mouth Reconstruction
After every treatment in your full-mouth restoration treatment program, someone from our team will explain what to expect and how to care for your mouth. We may write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication that you should fill prior to your procedure and take as directed. You will experience some swelling and/or discomfort after certain procedures, such as implant placement, that may make it tough to eat so a liquid or soft food diet may be most suitable for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, it is important to maintain your restored oral health with good brushing and flossing in your home. Yearly dental examinations and twice-yearly cleanings at Downtown Dental Partners – Boston, MA, will also be very important in maintaining your revamped mouth. During your exams, we will monitor the health of your restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jawbone to ensure your results last as long as possible.
Insurance Coverage for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
During your consultation, we will produce your customized treatment strategy based on your goals, needs, and budget. We can give you different choices to make sure your full-mouth reconstruction is easy to afford. If you have dental insurance, we will contact your supplier to verify your coverage and determine your out-of-pocket costs. Downtown Dental Partners – Boston, MA, takes several payment methods, such as medical financing.
