With the right dental treatment, most oral health concerns can be addressed more conveniently than many people expect. For many people, however, their smiles are impacted by more than just one problem, and restoring their smiles can require addressing multiple issues of different natures and extents. To fully restore your oral health and bite function while minimizing the overall extent of your treatment, you may benefit from a custom-designed, full-mouth rehabilitation plan.
What is full-mouth rehabilitation?
Full-mouth rehabilitation isn’t a single dental treatment, but rather a process of helping you regain the good health of your natural teeth, oral tissues and structures, and more. This can require one or more specific types of dental treatments, depending on the unique concerns that affect your smile. For example, if you have a tooth that’s decaying, then it may need a tooth filling or root canal treatment. Another tooth with a chipped edge may need cosmetic or restorative treatment to improve its appearance and repair the damage. No matter what your specific treatment involves, the goal will be to optimize the results of your treatment plan while keeping the process as streamlined as possible.
Why your treatment takes a whole-smile approach
The reason full-mouth rehabilitation isn’t defined by any single treatment is because the approach of the treatment plan is to take your smile and oral health as a whole. Rather than repairing one or several teeth, or addressing one or several specific concerns, the ultimate goals are to improve your smile’s appearance, restore the health and integrity of your teeth, protect your smile’s foundation, and more. Taking a whole-smile approach means each treatment will be designed to offer maximum results for your entire smile.
Designing your smile’s restoration plan
Because of the unique nature of most people’s smile concerns, a full-mouth rehabilitation has to be personalized to meet each patient’s unique needs. In some cases, multiple concerns may be addressed with a single treatment, such as porcelain veneers, to help further streamline your smile’s restoration. Minimizing your treatment can also help you preserve a greater amount of your healthy, natural tooth structure, which can have significant benefits to the long-term health and integrity of your teeth.
