Not all dental problems are considered severe. But delaying treatment or if a single problem worsens, that’s another story.
It’s important to stay ahead. Preventive dentistry is an oral health essential and when combined with restorative and cosmetic dentistry solutions you have a winning combination.
Full mouth rehabilitation or restoration involves the combined benefits of a variety of dental procedures. The outcome can restore your health and appearance while saving you time and long term costs.
It starts somewhere
One missing tooth, damage to a single tooth, or misaligned teeth can start the degenerative process in your mouth. Pain, inability to chew or eat, tooth wear, and gum and bone tissue erosion are among the symptoms.
Be aware of common issues that can cause risks to your oral health:
- Missing teeth
- Chipped, broken, misaligned, or worn teeth
- Chronic pain in your head, neck, or jaw
These problems and others are motivation to schedule an examination. Again, delay can worsen your symptoms and cause further damage or disease.
When more is better
Most full mouth restorations involve restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Combining treatments can restore the health and appearance of your teeth and gums.
Your full mouth rehabilitation will be unique to your dental issues. An oral examination and treatment plan will provide you detailed information and how to prioritize your restorative and/or cosmetic treatment.
Full mouth rehabilitation or restoration can involve a variety of procedures including:
- Dental crowns, dental fillings, and inlays and onlays to treat decay
- Root canal treatment to save your tooth and remove infection
- Orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth and align your bite
- Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening for improving your smile appearance
- Dental implants, a dental bridge, or dentures to replace your missing or damaged teeth
Your full mouth treatment will require phases to complete. The condition of your teeth, gums, and treatment priority will determine the pace of your procedures.
