Full mouth rehabilitation is an umbrella term used to describe the process of rebuilding the smile. At Spera Dental, full mouth rehabilitation can encompass several procedures, from replacing missing teeth with dental implants and dental crowns to treating TMJ disorders and improving tooth discoloration with whitening or porcelain veneers. Full mouth rehabilitation can treat any number of smile flaws, to improve overall dental health and function.
Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Full-Mouth Rehabilitation?
Full mouth rehabilitation is suitable for anyone experiencing several oral health issues, such as numerous cavities, gum disease, or teeth that are missing or poorly positioned. If a patient has these conditions, full mouth rehabilitation can correct the problem by rebuilding or restoring the teeth.
What Is Involved in Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
A full mouth rehabilitation is ideal for patients who want to treat multiple dental problems at once. It can also be a great option for patients who would like to change the appearance of their smile. A full-mouth rehabilitation plan typically involves several phases of care. Bite problems are typically addressed first. This includes repairing or replacing any damaged or missing teeth that compromise your bite. If the patient has worn teeth, those teeth can be restored with dental crowns to protect and strengthen them. Once bite problems have been addressed, the teeth can be examined for cosmetic imperfections.
The Benefits of a Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Multiple Tooth Loss
When multiple teeth are missing, the remaining teeth tend to shift, which can affect the alignment of your bite. Full mouth rehabilitation can help restore proper bite alignment.
If your jaw pain is accompanied by headaches, earaches, or neck pain, then you may be suffering from TMD. TMD is often caused by jaw misalignment and bite problems. Full mouth rehabilitation can correct the problem.
If your teeth and chewing muscles are misaligned, you may have a hard time chewing food properly. It can cause your jaw muscles to overwork, leading to TMJ disorder. It can also cause your jaw joints to wear down and affect your bite. Full mouth rehabilitation treatments can restore your chewing function and let you get back to eating the foods you love.
General Health Problems
Full mouth rehabilitation improves every dental and oral health. It corrects problems such as bite misalignment, tooth loss, and oral diseases. It can also improve the patient’s overall health. Full mouth rehabilitation can also improve the patient’s social life, confidence, and self-esteem.
