What is a Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Full mouth rehabilitation, sometimes known as full mouth reconstruction, is a holistic application of multidisciplinary treatments to correct a combination of dental issues. These can include collapsed bite, decay, general wear, misalignment, missing teeth, and others. Full mouth reconstruction is about developing a program tailored to improve a specific set of concerns, restore lost or damaged tissue, and achieve peak oral health and function. A few phases may be necessary to reach the result. These procedures typically involve anything from dental bridges, dental crowns, dental implants, fillings, tooth extractions, veneers and much more.
For the first phase of full mouth rehabilitation, we often use digital smile imaging to plan your treatment. Our patients usually have several different options available to them for treatment and our smile imaging processes allow them to see simulated results of the various available procedures. This way, they can make a more informed decision about the treatment that’s right for them.
The Importance of Gum Health
If you experience sore, bleeding, or swollen gums or abscesses in your mouth, you may have some degree of gum disease and would first need periodontal treatment to control the disease before beginning your full mouth rehabilitation. This will ensure the health of your teeth and gums. These treatments may include scaling and root planing or laser therapy. Once we have successfully treated your gum disease, you will then be able to proceed with any other necessary dental procedures to enjoy the best in whole-mouth health.
What Dental Treatments are Used in Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Dental treatments commonly used in full mouth reconstruction include dental implants, porcelain veneers and crowns, Invisalign, partial and complete dentures, and transitional bonding. Additionally, you may wish to have any metal fillings exchanged for tooth-coloured composite, or you may need dental crowns or bridges.
The primary difference between full mouth reconstruction and a smile makeover is a small one: reconstruction is dedicated overall to function, and a makeover is dedicated to cosmetics. However, there is no reason why you cannot choose to mix and match treatments to suit your needs.
