Full Mouth Reconstruction

What is Full mouth rehabilitation?

A full mouth rehabilitation could perhaps be considered one of the more challenging procedures in dentistry. It is a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental services which can give you a new look with a set of pearly whites.

Why does one need them?

Over time, there is consistent wear and tear on the teeth. There are three primary reasons dentists have outlined: abrasion, erosion, and attrition. Abrasion is the loss of the hard tooth surface, which might be the result of incorrect brushing. Decay happens primarily when certain foods wear away at the tooth, and attrition occurs when tooth-to-tooth wear and tear are caused. Any one of these or all of these can warrant the need for full mouth rehabilitation. 

What do they do?

In case you are thinking about a full mouth rehabilitation or considering it, the first step would be to visit our dental office for a consultation with one of our trained specialists. Because of the comprehensive scope of this procedure, it would require detailed planning, and our uniquely qualified team will accompany you in each stage of your treatment. Our sophisticated technology will be able to track jaw movement with remarkable accuracy, which precisely enables us to lay the foundation for truly customized treatment.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation Procedure

This is a highly individualized and customized treatment. The main aim of a complete mouth reconstruction plan is to enhance the health of the entire mouth, which includes the teeth, the gums, and the bite. Many cases may involve a necessity to replace or even restore some or all teeth in the mouth using different combinations of dental services such as:

Dental bridges
Dental crowns
Dental implants
Inlays or Onlays
Porcelain veneers
Professional-grade teeth whitening
Tooth-colored composite or traditional metal fillings
Are you a suitable candidate for a Full Mouth Rehabilitation candidate?

An ideal candidate for full mouth rehabilitation would need to be in good general health but have multiple missing or severely damaged teeth. There could be an instance when many full-mouth rehabilitation patients may also require the replacement of already existing dental restorations that may have worn over time. Since a full-mouth rehabilitation requires extensive work that is spread out over multiple appointments, the result is a fully functioning mouth with excellent oral health that can last for decades.
