Why Might I Need Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Teeth that are worn down, broken or missing, or which are out of alignment can often be corrected or replaced with full mouth rehabilitation. This procedure is more complex than a smile makeover, using a combination of cosmetic dentistry, restorative and reconstructive treatments to restore appearance and function to your teeth. Often people will have a misaligned jaw that creates tension in the facial muscles, as well as the neck and shoulders and which can place additional strain on the teeth and jaw joints.
Which Type of Treatments May Be Used during Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Treatments that may be used in full mouth rehabilitation include:
- Dental implants
- Crowns and bridges
- Inlays and onlays
- Porcelain veneers
How Is Full Mouth Rehabilitation Planned?
We plan every full mouth rehabilitation extremely carefully and will need to carry out a number of diagnostic tests and conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and jaws beforehand. Each procedure will be carried out in a specific order, gradually reconstructing your smile. The aim is to ensure that your teeth will be fully functional while looking fantastic. A properly planned full mouth rehabilitation will protect your teeth and jaws, as well as your facial muscles from any further damage.
Orthodontics uses fixed or removable appliances to correct the position of teeth and jaws.
