Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitation refers to the process of completely restoring all of the teeth in your mouth. Full mouth reconstruction, unlike a “smile makeover,” is a necessary series of procedures, rather than elective surgery.
Full mouth rehabilitation is needed when:
- Teeth have been lost
- Teeth have been injured or fractured
- Teeth have become worn as a result of acid-erosion
- Jaw pain is present due to bite problems
Procedures Involved in Full Mouth Reconstruction
Every patient at Smileboston receives individualized treatment and procedures based upon need. However, full mouth reconstruction requires multiple office visits and a considerable amount of healing time. Working together, the professionals at Smileboston will determine which procedure or combination of procedures is necessary to restore and rebuild a healthy and beautiful smile.
Full Mouth Rehab Procedures May Include:
- Teeth cleaning (prophylaxis)
- Crown lengthening to prepare tooth structure for possible crowns or bridges
- Surgery to reposition the jaw (orthognathic surgery)
- Contouring of the gum tissue
- Reduction of natural tooth structure to prepare for crowns, bridges, and veneers
- Placement of temporary restorations to get you used to your new teeth or bite adjustment
- Placement of permanent restorations such as crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, or bridges
- Braces to move teeth into the ideal position for reconstruction
- Bone or soft tissue grafting to increase the stability of teeth or implants.
