Full Mouth Rehabilitation is a process of rebuilding or restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. At Koski DePaul Dental Group, this usually involves a combination of restorative dental treatments, cosmetic treatments, and orthodontic treatments. This procedure may be necessary to restore functionality and appearance and prevent the side effects of missing teeth. Some common effects of missing teeth include shifting the remaining teeth, difficulty eating and speaking, and a collapsed bite.
A full mouth reconstruction can improve a person’s quality of life by preventing discomfort and pain caused by missing or damaged teeth. The benefits of a full mouth reconstruction are many. When a person has undergone this procedure, they can rest assured that their oral health has been restored to its maximum potential. This means they can enjoy better chewing and digestion abilities, an improved smile aesthetic, and better overall health. Because missing teeth can lead to an increased risk of gum disease and infection, it is much more critical to correct dental issues as soon as possible.
Who Are Candidates for Full-Mouth Rehabilitation?
A full mouth restoration is often called a full mouth reconstruction because it rebuilds a patient’s smile. However, it’s also sometimes called a smile makeover or complete mouth rejuvenation because that’s generally what it accomplishes. A patient that suffers from numerous oral health issues that require significant restorative procedures will likely need this type of treatment. If you’ve lost all of your teeth or have severe tooth decay that requires multiple fillings and crowns, this is probably a good course of action for you to take as well. Patients with oral conditions like TMJ disorder, missing or damaged teeth, poor gum health, and severe bite alignment problems should also consider this treatment.
The Benefits of Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitation refers to procedures that are designed to treat multiple problems at the same time in a single visit. Some patients who suffer from several oral health concerns at once can benefit from full mouth rehabilitation, as it prevents them from undergoing multiple treatments over an extended period. A general dentist specializing in restorative dentistry can provide patients with full mouth rehabilitation, including treatments for decaying or damaged teeth, lost or missing teeth, and misaligned teeth.
Patients receiving treatment for more than one issue at a time may experience improved results, such as better comfort, shorter treatment times, and reduced recovery times. Many patients who receive full mouth rehabilitation will also experience improvements in their self-esteem and quality of life due to having a functional and attractive smile.
