"Dr. Abraham and his staff are great! Not only have they seen me, but our three kids (ages 8,8 & 9, yes twins) and our grandma. We've all seen dentists that are highly recommended, from Corona Del Mar to San Jose as we use to live in Silicon Valley, but I can honestly say that Sr.Abraham and his staff (from dental hygienists, front office staff to the Doc himself) are the best I've seen. They are obviously a for profit business, but they go out of their way to make sure you get more value than what you would ever expect. Dr.Kareem is above all, concerned with the overall health of our entire family. He does things like screen his patients for different issues, as a precaution and doesn't charge extra, just to make sure he has a good overall picture of your health and that you're well informed. I think the biggest thing though is everyone in our family likes going to the dentist because it's always a good experience. The doc is wonderful with our kids and they really like him. They've never complained of anything and that's great! I just recently found out that Dr.Kareem was listed as OC's top 10 doctors in Orange Coast magazine and he didn't pay them a dime, it was a total surprise to him."- S.B. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2019

You may require full-mouth reconstruction if you've lost some teeth or have many teeth with large fillings that need replacement. You might also have teeth with widespread decay or teeth that are cracked, broken, or become 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 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 ideal number of teeth are in place.
What To Expect
Following a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and jaw, Dr. Abraham might suggest full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment program will be generated depending on the condition of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, facial muscles, and dental bite. Dr. Abraham will discuss your therapy and sedation alternatives and his own recommendations in your appointment to make sure your treatment strategy fits your wants and goals. As soon as your treatment program is made, he will discuss exactly what to expect in your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your procedures. Generally, a full-mouth reconstruction will require a few visits to LifeTime Smiles of OC. Dr. Abraham will schedule your treatments with breaks in between to let you recover until the next step is started.
After every procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, Dr. Abraham will describe what to expect and how to look after your mouth. He can write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine that needs to be filled prior to your treatment. You might experience some swelling or discomfort following certain processes, such as implant placement that will make it hard to eat so a soft or liquid food diet could be best for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is finished, you must maintain your oral health at home with good flossing and brushing. Yearly dental examinations and twice-yearly cleanings at LifeTime Smiles of OC will also be helpful. Throughout your examinations, Dr. Abraham can track the health of your own restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jaw.
In your initial consultation, Dr. Abraham can make your personalized treatment strategy according to your objectives, needs, and budget. He will provide you with various choices to make certain that your full-mouth reconstruction is able to fit your budget. LifeTime Smiles of OC takes multiple payments, such as low-interest financing. If you have dental insurance, then we will contact your supplier to validate your coverage and calculate your personal costs.
