"Had a very fast, and great experience in Dr. Toms office. Everyone was friendly, and very helpful."- T.R. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2020
"I have extreme anxiety and fear about the dentist. I had a lower molar that had been troubling me for years but no dentist could ever get it to numb enough to fix it due to my resistance to local anesthetics. Dr. Toms used sedation dentistry techniques to correct the issues with my tooth and I can honestly say it was the best experience I have ever had with a dentist. I highly recommend his practice especially if you deal with anxiety over dentistry work. He and his staff were extremely friendly and made me feel like I was there only concern. The procedure was painless (although I must admit I dont think I was even awake for most of it) and just a few hours later I can acually chew again with a tooth I haven't been able to use for years. Thank you Dr. Toms!"- J.G. / Google / Feb 12, 2020

Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
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 with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
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.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
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.
