When dental problems begin to accumulate, the overall function, health, and aesthetics of the smile can become severely impacted. Often, patients with multiple dental concerns can begin to feel a lack of confidence in their smile and the effects of declining dental health. With a custom-tailored full mouth rehabilitation treatment plan, our prosthodontists can address all of your dental issues, and completely rebuild and rejuvenate your smile. Using the latest cosmetic and restorative dentistry techniques, our team at Schweitzer & Schweitzer, PC is uniquely qualified to restore damaged tooth structures, rehabilitate oral health, and achieve results that look exceptionally natural.
Candidates for Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Our prosthodontists typically recommend full mouth rehabilitation for patients who have several oral health problems in addition to cosmetic imperfections. A comprehensive full mouth rehabilitation treatment plan can address common concerns such as:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Worn down or broken teeth
- Unevenly spaced or crooked teeth
- Stains or discoloration
- Severe tooth decay
- Misaligned teeth
- Missing teeth
- Traumatic dental injuries
During your initial consultation, your prosthodontist will perform a thorough oral exam, discuss your personal goals, and design a custom treatment plan that can restore the form, function, and beautiful appearance of your teeth.
Common Components of a Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitation typically consists of a combination of several reconstructive, restorative, and/or cosmetic dentistry procedures that may include:
- Porcelain Crowns: These restorations are designed to replace damaged parts of a tooth and provide renewed strength and structure. Typically, crowns are used to restore teeth that have been severely (but not entirely) compromised by injury or decay. Porcelain crowns are custom-crafted for long-lasting durability and optimal aesthetics.
- Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are made from thin layers of porcelain material and can conceal a wide variety of common imperfections. These restorations require minimal tooth preparation, can achieve beautiful results, and are most frequently used to restore teeth that are visible when patients smile.
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are an innovative solution for missing teeth that can create a full smile, while offering stability and superior aesthetics that are on par with a natural healthy tooth. A titanium post is implanted to provide the new tooth’s root. With proper healing, it eventually fuses to the jawbone to become a permanent part of the mouth. Since each dental implant is structured and functions much like a natural tooth, no extra daily hygiene or maintenance is required.
- Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are an alternative to traditional dentures that can eliminate many common denture inconveniences including adhesives, slippage, and gingival irritation. Some patients who are not good candidates for a full set of single-tooth implants due to diminished jawbone density may be able to opt for implant-supported dentures. The right strategy for you will depend on your unique needs and goals.
