"It's difficult to know where to begin! Our family of 4, plus my mother, have all been cared for by Dr. Toms and his staff for over 20 years. From my children's dental needs (wisdom teeth, too!) to my elderly mother's care, Dr. Toms has always helped us sort through all options and guided us all the way. His skill and sensitivity put both of my children at ease and they now are adults who are comfortable with dental visits. Dr. Toms has been a great friend to our family! Very highly recommended."- J.M. / Google / Mar 22, 2022

"I recently moved to GA and had not established care with a dentist yet. While I was eating, a crown from a previous root canal came off. So, I needed to find a dentist ASAP! I have pretty significant dental-related anxiety and previously sought out a dentist certified in sedation dentistry for this reason. I found several several recommendations for Dr. Toms online and was pleasantly surprised and relieved to learn that he is certified and proficient in both oral and IV sedation. I called his office to schedule an appointment and did not expect a next-day appointment! The staff was so friendly on the phone, and even more welcoming in person! They made me feel like a long time regular patient from the first moment I met them! I filled out all of my paperwork online before my appointment and just had to sign them once I arrived., The check-in process was smooth and quick, and I waited less than 10 minutes to see Dr.,Toms., They even scheduled my cleaning 2 days later! Highly recommend!"- J.M. / Google / May 23, 2021
Full-mouth reconstruction may be needed if you've lost some teeth or have many teeth with large fillings that need replacement. You may also have teeth with widespread decay or teeth that are cracked, broken or badly worn down because of bruxism (persistent teeth grinding). You may have dental ailments or even a hereditary disorder like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth), which all require extensive treatment. You might choose to replace older crowns, or just want to enhance your mouth for better comfort or health. In more complex cases, your degraded gums and teeth might have caused a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction may revive the whole face once the appropriate treatments take place.
What To Expect
Following a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and bite, Dr. Toms might suggest full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment program will be created depending on the condition of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, facial muscles, and bite. Dr. Toms will discuss your therapy and sedation options.
As soon as your treatment program is made, he will discuss exactly what to expect in your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your appointments. In general, a full-mouth reconstruction will require a few visits to Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D. Many of our full-mouth reconstruction patients have a series of treatments performed at one time. Since there are usually many teeth to treat, your full-mouth reconstruction may take place over months as some areas need to heal before the next step can begin.
After every treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, Dr. Toms will describe what to expect and how to care for your mouth. He can write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine that needs to be filled prior to your procedure. You may experience some swelling or discomfort following certain processes, such as implant placement that will make it difficult to eat, so a soft or liquid food diet may be best for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is complete, you must keep your restored oral health with good flossing and brushing in your home. Yearly dental examinations and twice-yearly cleanings in our office will also be helpful. Throughout your exams, Dr. Toms can track the health of your own restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jaw.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Toms can create your own treatment strategy according to your objectives, needs, and budget. He will provide you various choices to make certain that your full-mouth reconstruction is easy to afford. Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D. takes multiple payments, such as low-interest medical financing.
