The Full Mouth Rehabilitation Process

If you have been told that you may possibly need a full mouth restoration or full mouth reconstruction, call Implant Dentistry and Periodontics for a consultation. We will do a full consultation and exam to find out what procedures would give you the best results. We will also recommend solutions that we feel will help your body health as a whole and treatments that are long lasting, so any issues do not return. The team at Implant Dentistry and Periodontics will expertly examine the following to determine whether you indeed need full mouth reconstruction dental treatment:

  • Teeth: The first step is to do a full examination of your teeth. We will be looking for any cracks, teeth wear and tear, cavities, and more imperfections. We might discuss other dental procedures during this time such as dental bridges, crowns, veneers, or other restorative treatment.
  • Periodontal Disease: We must examine your mouth to determine if you have any gum disease or bacterial infections in your mouth. If so, we might recommend a treatment such as scaling, or root planing to treat periodontal disease first. We need to find any deep pockets with the gums or weaknesses in the bone structure before doing any kind of full mouth rehabilitation treatment.
  • Your Bite: When you bite down on any food or basically just in general, it should not cause you any pain or discomfort. Any occlusal changes in your bite need to be addressed first before receiving restoration treatments. In some cases, Implant Dentistry and Periodontics may recommend orthodontics or a simple night guard first to correct the occlusion before any restorative procedures can be performed.
  • Aesthetics: We will do a full exam on how your mouth, teeth, and jaws look aesthetically. We will be looking for any irregularities, sizes and proportions of your teeth, front, and side profiles of your face, as well as any loss in bone that might be causing sagging or drooping.

Are You a Candidate for a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

There are several reasons people need full mouth reconstruction and rehabilitation and a few of those reasons are:

  • Loss of teeth through infection of the gums, bacterial decay, or unfortunate trauma.
  • Your teeth have become cracked, chipped, fractured, or injured to the point that they are unrecoverable.
  • The excessive wearing down of the enamel. This can be a result of too much acid erosion from drinking soda or eating acidic foods such as citrus fruit and others. Tooth grinding during both the day or in your sleep at night is also a factor in the erosion of your natural enamel.
  • Severe pain associated from TMJ and your natural ability to bite correctly, or misalignment.
