Restoring Dental Function and Aesthetics
Are you dealing with a wide range of dental issues that affect your smile and oral health? Do you struggle to eat, speak or feel confident in social situations? If so, a smile makeover or full mouth rehabilitation might be the solution you need.
What is Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Full mouth rehabilitation, also known as full mouth reconstruction, are comprehensive dental treatments that involves rebuilding or restoring all of the teeth in the upper and lower jaw. The aim is to improve dental function, aesthetics, and oral health by addressing multiple dental problems at once.
Who Needs Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Full mouth rehabilitation is often recommended for individuals who have experienced extensive dental damage, wear and tear, or trauma. This could include people with:
- Severe tooth decay
- Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth
- Misaligned or maloccluded bite
- Gum disease
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
- Missing teeth
What Does Full Mouth Rehabilitation Involve?
Full mouth rehabilitation is a complex process that requires a comprehensive dental evaluation and treatment plan. The exact procedures involved will depend on the specific needs of each patient, but typically, full mouth rehabilitation includes a combination of restorative, cosmetic, and orthodontic treatments.
Some of the most common procedures involved in full mouth rehabilitation include:
- Dental implants or bridges to replace missing teeth
- Porcelain veneers, crowns, or bonding to restore damaged teeth
- Clear aligners or braces to correct bite misalignments
- Gum grafting or other periodontal treatments to address gum disease
- Root canal therapy or extractions to treat infected or damaged teeth
How Long Does Full Mouth Rehabilitation Take?
The duration of full mouth rehabilitation will depend on the complexity of the case and the number of procedures involved. Some patients may be able to complete their full mouth rehabilitation within a few months, while others may require more than a year of treatment. Your dentist will provide you with an estimate of the time required based on your specific situation.
