The term, “full-mouth rehabilitation,” can seem like a complex procedure, but the truth is that everyone’s treatment plan is different. Depending on your needs, rehabilitating your smile can be as simple as treating a cavity, or as comprehensive as replacing lost teeth and their roots. The goal of full-mouth rehabilitation is to return your smile to an optimal state of health, function, and beauty. Therefore, designing your full-mouth rehabilitation is a personal process where you and your dentist work together to determine the best course of treatment.
The first step to any dental treatment is to perform a comprehensive examination so your dentist can provide an accurate and precise diagnosis of your oral health concerns. For the best results, we utilize advanced dental imaging technology, such as digital X-rays and 3D imaging, when necessary. Using the highly detailed images and a keen eye for dental health issues, your dentist will point out the specifics of your oral health needs, and which treatments can help you conservatively correct them.
Your smile is unique, and so are the issues that affect it. For instance, even though about 90% of adults are affected by cavities, each cavity varies in location and severity. If you have a cavity, then treating it will require assessing the cavity’s nature and extent, then recommend the most appropriate treatment for you. Other issues that are often resolved with full-mouth rehabilitation include:
- Extreme tooth wear, such as from bruxism
- Bite imbalances that over-stress your jaw joints
- Misaligned teeth that throw your bite off balance
- One or more lost teeth that lead to a host of worsening dental issues
- Gum recession due to gingivitis/gum disease
- And more
