Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Transforming Your Mouth With Full Mouth Rehabilitation
This type of dental treatment is very individualized and comprehensive, which is why it yields such dramatic results. Full mouth rehabilitation aims to improve the overall health of the entire mouth and teeth. This is different from an elective or a cosmetic procedure because full mouth restoration will prioritize the long-term health of your teeth and mouth over aesthetic adjustments.
Full mouth rehabilitation involves rebuilding or restoring all of the teeth in the upper and lower jaws, sometimes at the same time. Some of the common reasons why a patient could need full mouth rehabilitation include tooth loss from a traumatic accident, multiple injured or fractured teeth, long-term tooth decay, damage from excessive tooth grinding or chronic pain in the jaw or mouth from a misaligned bite.
Some of the typical elements of full mouth restoration include:
- • Implants
- • Crowns
- • Bridges
- • Veneers
- • Dentures
Because of the extensive nature of full mouth rehabilitation procedures, your individual treatment may require multiple procedures over a span of several visits to the dentist. Each individual case is different, so an experienced dentist will be able to answer more specific questions about whether full mouth restoration is required for your mouth and teeth and what the procedures will entail.
Is Full Mouth Rehabilitation Right for Me?
Only your dentist can determine whether you require full mouth rehabilitation. This will depend on the overall condition of your teeth and mouth. Your dentist will examine the state of your teeth, check for periodontal gum disease and the alignment of your bite and jaw. This typically involves an exam and X-rays.
