Full mouth rehabilitation, often referred to as full mouth reconstruction or restoration is a transformative and holistic approach to address various dental issues comprehensively. It involves the systematic restoration of all teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. This procedure goes beyond mere cosmetic enhancements, aiming to restore both the functionality and aesthetics of the entire oral cavity.
How do you identify if you need a full mouth rehabilitation?
Several factors may indicate the need for a full mouth rehabilitation:
– Severe tooth decay or cavities
– Extensive gum disease affecting multiple teeth
– Trauma resulting in significant dental damage
– Congenital disorders affecting oral health
– Long-term neglect leading to multiple dental issues
– Multiple missing teeth
– Cracked, broken, or excessively worn teeth
– Old fillings, crowns, or other dental work that is failing
– Genetic conditions such as Ectodermal Dysplasia, Amelogenesis, or Dentinogenesis Imperfecta
What are the steps involved in the treatment process?
A thorough diagnostic assessment will be taken first. This typically includes comprehensive dental examination through X-rays and CBCT scans to make impressions for models to analyze bite and alignment.
Based on the diagnostic findings, a personalized treatment plan is devised. This plan may involve a combination of restorative, cosmetic, and surgical procedures.
After undergoing a transformative full mouth rehabilitation, diligent post-care is essential. Maintain regular dental check-ups, adhere to recommended oral hygiene practices, and follow any specific instructions your dentist provides. Consistent care and a commitment to lifestyle adjustments ensure the longevity and radiance of your revitalized oral health.
