Full Mouth Rehabilitation Q & A

What kinds of procedures are included in full mouth rehabilitation?

Also known as full mouth reconstruction, full mouth rehabilitation involves restoring your teeth in your upper and lower jaws. Some examples of treatments for full mouth rehabilitation include:

  • Treatment of worn-down teeth resulting from tooth grinding
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Porcelain crowns and veneers t
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental bridges and implants to replace missing teeth

At Dana Niguel Dental, treatment plans are customized to address the individual issues affecting the healthy operation and aesthetics of your mouth’s ecosystem.

Why would I need full mouth rehabilitation?

There are many different reasons you might need to consider full mouth rehabilitation as part of your oral treatment plan. Some reasons include:

  • To replace broken, weakened, cracked, or damaged teeth
  • Having lost teeth to decay or trauma
  • Severely worn teeth from long-term acid erosion or tooth grinding
  • Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite

Other than appearance and aesthetics, a healthy mouth is necessary for your overall health as well. That’s why someone getting a transplant or heart surgery needs a clean bill of dental health. The main culprit is oral bacteria, which can build up and turn into tooth decay and gum disease. If left unchecked, these infections can also affect other body systems, so full mouth rehabilitation may be an important treatment option to help avoid further complications.

What are my options for replacing missing teeth?

For many years, dentures were the only option for replacing missing teeth. Today, patients who don’t want to or can’t wear dentures have an option that’s the next best thing to your natural teeth — dental implants.

Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone and are permanent artificial teeth that look and act like natural teeth. Dr. Rezaei is expertly trained in dental implant placement.

Dr. Rezaei meets with you to discuss your goals and medical background to design the appropriate restorative treatment plan. If you have multiple, complex dental issues, Dr. Rezaei is expertly trained in developing and executing complex treatment plans for your oral health and cosmetic issues.
