What Does Full Mouth Rehabilitation Mean?
Full mouth rehabilitation is the process of re-establishing the occlusion with a new set of teeth, either implant/tooth supported or a complete denture. It might sound like a complicated procedure, but full mouth rehabilitation merely means combining restorative dental treatments to fix or rebuild your smile. Our goal is to not only help you enjoy smiling again, but also to strengthen and fortify your healthy oral tissues and tooth structures, as well. The exact treatments that make up your full mouth reconstruction will depend on the specific issues that affect your smile. During your consultation, we will thoroughly discuss your dental issues, and what combination of treatments can rebuild your smile in a conservative, minimally-invasive way.
The Reason for Restoration Dentistry
Dental restoration is not just an option; it’s a necessity, since your teeth cannot recover from damage or infection on their own. A chipped edge, a cracked surface, or even a minor cavity will pose a significant threat to your oral health if allowed to grow worse through lack of treatment.
In many cases, a tooth filling or dental crown may be able to restore a single afflicted tooth. However, many patients exhibit a number of problems with more than one tooth, and/or the gum tissues around them. Restorative dentistry is designed to restore your smile’s good health; when that requires more than a single procedure, full mouth reconstruction may be the answer.
Designing Your Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Whether your teeth are damaged, infected, or lost, or your gums are diseased and need periodontal treatment, we offer a variety of services to address your unique needs. Depending on your condition, your full mouth reconstruction can include;
- Dental crowns that cover, protect, and restore teeth.
