Candidates for Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Candidates for a full mouth rehabilitation typically have multiple oral health concerns, often combined with one or more cosmetic concerns. Common dental issues exhibited by full mouth rehabilitation candidates include:
- Severe tooth decay
- Broken, worn, or damaged teeth
- One or more missing teeth
- Advanced periodontal (gum) disease
- Minor cracks or chips
- Stains or discoloration
- Mild to severe tooth misalignment
Depending upon the number of cosmetic concerns and your personal goals, Dr. Farber may also recommend a smile makeover to focus on improving the aesthetics of your smile.
Possible Components of a Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Some of the procedures that can potentially be involved in a full mouth rehabilitation might include:
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are designed to replace a missing tooth with a natural-looking restoration. This restorative procedure provides excellent stability and beautiful results.
- Porcelain Crowns: Porcelain crowns can provide support for a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged. These durable restorations can be especially well-suited for teeth at the back of your mouth.
- Anchored Dentures (Implant-Supported): Implant-supported dentures can restore lost function to the mouth, improving your ability to chew and speak. This solution for missing teeth can be ideal for patients who do not have enough bone density for a full set of dental implants but want more stability than traditional dentures can offer.
- Periodontal Care: Scaling, root planing, and laser dentistry techniques can alleviate the symptoms of gum disease, including swollen, red, irritated, or bleeding gums.
- Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are designed to cover minor tooth imperfections with a thin porcelain shell. This cosmetic dentistry technique can achieve beautiful, natural-looking results with minimal preparation.
- Tooth-Colored Fillings: Tooth colored fillings allow Dr. Farber to seal a cavity and protect a tooth against further decay with materials that are inconspicuous and blend with the natural tooth color.
