What is Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Full mouth rehabilitation or full mouth reconstruction is a multi-step treatment process designed to repair all the teeth in the mouth. This is often recommended for patients who have lost or damaged their teeth after severe trauma or decay. Full mouth rehabilitation involves a variety of procedures customized to each patient’s needs.
Benefits of Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitation restores a beautiful smile and has medical benefits. Some of these cosmetic and medical benefits include:
Restoring your mouth to health also creates a beautiful smile which adds to the patient’s overall appearance. This enhanced smile also improves people’s self-confidence since many are embarrassed about their missing or damaged teeth. Confidence is a key part of attractiveness and overall happiness!
Better Oral Health
Missing teeth can cause toothaches and pains in the surrounding teeth that shift to accommodate for the gaps. Decaying teeth can also cause infection in the surrounding areas, creating a compound effect that may result in the loss of all the patient’s teeth. Full mouth reconstruction repairs the damaged teeth and protects the surrounding ones to improve and maintain great oral health.
The teeth can become damaged or decayed due to bacteria, improper cleaning, or simply aging. As we age, the teeth weaken and are more easily damaged. Rehabilitating the mouth with veneers, crowns, or other appliances will help support the weakening teeth so that the mouth can continue to function properly when eating, speaking, and more.
Cure TMJ-Related Migraines
TMJ or teeth clenching (bruxism) can cause significant tooth and jaw pain that may extend to the rest of the head. Continuous pressure placed on the jaw from teeth clenching often leads to frequent or prolonged migraines and headaches. Full mouth rehabilitation can treat TMJ to relieve these debilitating headaches.
Reduce Chronic Pain
Crowded teeth, a misaligned jaw, gum disease, and/or teeth decay can worsen over time and as these problems worsen, so will pain in the jaw and mouth. This pain can make it difficult to eat, speak, and move, which has a significant impact on people’s quality of life. Chronic tooth, gum, and jaw pain can be relieved with a full-mouth rehabilitation procedure.
