Full Mouth Rehabilitation
What’s full-mouth rehabilitation?
Full-mouth rehabilitation, also known as full-mouth reconstruction, uses a series of carefully planned restorative procedures and cosmetic treatments to reestablish optimal oral function and appearance to a patient who has extensive dental needs.
As a comprehensive solution to a wide range of dental concerns, full-mouth rehabilitation is often the best approach for men and women who find themselves dealing with several serious dental problems at once, such as:
- Multiple missing or severely decayed teeth
- Multiple cracked, worn, or weak teeth
- Teeth loosened by advanced gum disease
- Bite problems caused by jaw misalignment
The overriding goal of full-mouth rehabilitation is to recreate a beautiful smile while restoring optimal health and function to your teeth, gums, and bite.
Which restorative treatments may be included?
Much of the groundwork that’s required in full-mouth rehabilitation involves replacing lost teeth or restoring full function and appearance to damaged teeth. Depending on your personal dental needs, the team at Arbor Dental Group may suggest one or more of the following prosthetic solutions:
Implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible titanium. After they’re surgically set in your jawbone, they’re capped off with a custom-fitted artificial tooth, or porcelain crown, that’s designed to match your natural teeth.
Fixed dental bridges
A fixed dental bridge is a simple prosthetic restoration designed to fill the gaps created by one or more missing teeth. Because it’s cemented into place using your natural teeth on either side for support, a bridge is an ideal solution for patients who can’t receive implants.
Full or partial dentures
This removable dental appliance may be the best option for patients who’ve lost most or all of their teeth. Complete dentures replace a full set of top or bottom teeth, while partial dentures replace a few missing teeth.
Which cosmetic treatments may be included?
In addition to replacing missing teeth, full-mouth rehabilitation may also include a variety of cosmetic dental procedures to restore damaged teeth and improve dental aesthetics. The team at Arbor Dental Group may recommend:
- Same-day porcelain crowns
- Custom porcelain veneers
- Inlay or onlay restorations
- Gum tissue recontouring
- Complete orthodontic care
Full-mouth rehabilitation can also address underlying maxillofacial issues that affect your oral health. This may include deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) to treat advanced gum disease, or bone grafting to correct insufficient jawbone structure.
