"I love this dentist office!!! I recently moved out to Rhome and was in search of a new dentist. I found one extremely close, which I should have realized that close does not mean better. I used to be so comfortable I could fall asleep while having my teeth cleaned. The other place was painful, tense, unprofessional, an unexpected bill (when I was told everything was covered), and worst of all it hurt for 3 days even brushing my teeth.Radiant Dental changed my mind forever. I was hesitant at first because of my last experience at the other place. The staff and hygenist are nothing but extraordinary. Dr. Shattuck made sure I was comfortable and welcomed any questions before having a filling done. He was the least painful dentist I have EVER been to when it comes to fillings. Thanks everyone for such a welcome and professional visit that I no longer have anxiety and can fall asleep in the chair while having my teeth cleaned once again."- I.E. / Google / Jan 28, 2020
"The best dentist and dental office ever. I went in for a consult about a tooth that had been pulled by another dentist and after the doctors diving into my dental history about my TMJ and he offered treatment not a bandaid. I am so happy to be doing Invisalign to straighten my teeth and fix my cross bite causing the TMJ issues. I am now more pain free and lessened headaches. I followed all his instructions and recommendations and what was supposed to take 18-24 months is only been 12 months and soon will be over and into retainers and mouth guard. I am so happy i found Radiant Dental. Without him i would be hooked on muscles relaxers that really did not help and may have needed surgery to correct my TMJ. Yes thank you and the staff is amazing. They help me and offered suggestions and advise with any questions i had from Invisalign to billing questions and concerns. This is the best place ever and I know that my husband who recommended them to me and he hates dentists but loves this place! So if your looking for a great dental office then this is where you need to stop looking and come to Radiant Dental."- A.B. / Google / Jan 07, 2020

Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
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 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 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 with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Following a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and jaw, Dr. Shattuck 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. Shattuck will discuss your therapy and sedation alternatives, as well as his own recommendations, at 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.
A full-mouth reconstruction will require a few visits to Radiant Dental Care. Typically, Dr. Shattuck will first take impressions of your upper and lower jaws to use in creating your new bite with temporary materials. After he places the temporary new elements of your bite in your mouth, you will have them for about six months, visiting Dr. Shattuck every two months for minor adjustments. At that point, he will begin strategically replacing the temporary elements with long-lasting, bonded, porcelain restorations until your bite is completely restored. Dr. Shattuck will schedule your treatments with breaks in between to let you recover until the next step is started.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
After every treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, Dr. Shattuck will describe what to expect and how to look after your mouth. He can write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine, which might need to be filled prior to your treatment. You will feel 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 most suitable for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is finished, you must maintain your oral health with good flossing and brushing in your home. Yearly dental examinations and twice-yearly cleanings at Radiant Dental Care will also be helpful. Throughout your examinations, Dr. Shattuck can track the health of your restorations and natural gums, teeth, and jaw.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Insurance Coverage
In your initial consultation, Dr. Shattuck can create your personal treatment strategy according to your objectives, needs, and budget. He will offer you various choices to ensure that your full-mouth reconstruction is easy to afford. Radiant Dental Care takes multiple payment types and offers many payment plans. If you've got dental insurance, we will contact your supplier to validate your coverage and calculate your personal costs.
