Full Mouth Rehabilitation
At Revive Dental and Implant Center, we aim to give you the highest standard of expertise and options when it comes to you and your child’s health. Daily, we help people in treating many different tooth injuries, jaw realignment concerns, and other dental needs. Even when the damage is most severe, like when you need a full mouth rehabilitation, we can help you rebuild in a way that is most effective and comfortable for you and your specific needs. Through this procedure it is possible to restore every single tooth in both the upper and lower jaws.
What Circumstances Recommend Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
While this treatment may sound extreme, sometimes events over the course of your life make it necessary and recommended. Some of our patients have more intense and recurrent dental problems throughout their mouth and, when it comes to those of our patients with conditions like Ameliogenesis, Dentinogenesis Imperfecta, or Ectodermal Dysplasia, extensive restoration of all the teeth is often required. If you have suffered routinely from widespread missing teeth, decaying teeth, fillings that are failing, or unusually bad bruxism (teeth grinding), you might also be a good candidate for full mouth rehabilitation. Lastly, we have found that full mouth rehabilitation can be an effective way to help counteract some of the effects of oral cancer.
How Can I Know If I Need Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
To determine if the full mouth rehabilitation procedure is right for you, our first step is to have you come into our office for a comprehensive examination. We will look closely at your mouth to inspect your current dental problems and talk about the various treatment options that could help overcome them. We use x-rays, photographs, models of your teeth, and every tool at our disposal to craft a treatment plan that is best suited to you and your unique needs. To give you the most thorough help possible, we may also refer you to specialists such as prosthodontists, oral surgeons, or orthodontists for a consultation so we can gather additional information.
What Can I Expect From The Full Mouth Rehabilitation Procedure?
Because a full mouth rehabilitation is so all-encompassing and can take up to a year or more to complete, there are many possible procedures that can take place during that time that are catered to meet your needs. Orthognathic surgery may be needed to shift your jaw into a better position. We may prepare or reduce your existing tooth structure so that veneers, crowns, or bridges can be placed safely and firmly in your mouth. Through bone grafting, we can provide additional stability for your implants, teeth, or other possible restorations. Our priority is to give you a detailed and extensive treatment that ensures your long-term health after the full mouth rehabilitation is completed.
