Full Mouth Rehabilitation Q & A
What is a full-mouth rehabilitation?
A full-mouth rehabilitation is designed to restore both form and function to your teeth and gums through the use of prosthodontics, which are replacement teeth. The goal of a full-mouth restoration is to restore function, comfort, and appearance when you lose teeth or if you have teeth that are severely worn or damaged. In addition, a full-mouth rehabilitation can also help with alignment issues that affect how your oral function.
What options are included in a full-mouth rehabilitation?
Kelly Miller Specialty Dentistry offers a wide range of services that can rehabilitate your teeth, and your smile, including:
- Dental implants
- Dentures — both full and partial
- Implant-supported dentures
To determine which options will benefit you most, Dr. Kelly takes the time to understand your issues so that she can devise an individualized treatment plan that restores your dental health. For example, if tooth decay, gum disease, or serious wear and tear have wreaked havoc on your existing teeth, your full-mouth rehabilitation may be quite extensive as Dr. Kelly removes your damaged teeth and sets you up with suitable replacements.
In other cases, you may have only minor issues that can be easily covered up by veneers and crowns, leaving your existing teeth mostly intact.
How long does a full-mouth rehabilitation take?
The answer to this depends upon what you and Dr. Kelly decide is the best course of action. A full-mouth rehabilitation does take time, especially if Dr. Kelly has to prepare your mouth before adding any prosthodontics. You may also need to allow time for your prosthodontics to be custom manufactured to meet your unique needs and goals.
But your patience is rewarded as Dr. Kelly restores both form and function to your mouth, giving you every reason to smile.
And rest assured, Dr. Kelly finds the path of least resistance when it comes to a full-mouth rehabilitation so that you can flash your new smile as quickly as possible.
