Full Mouth Rehabilitations
When a person needs all of their teeth in their mouth restored, the process is called a full mouth restoration. Full mouth restorations may include crowns, bridges, and veneers, as well as gum treatment, tooth movement and re-positioning, and fixing the tooth pulp.
A person may need a full mouth restoration to correct:
- Missing teeth due to trauma or decay
- Teeth that have broken or otherwise been injured
- Teeth with long-term erosion problems
- Bites that need adjusting (occlusions)
Do You Need a Dental Reconstruction?
You and your dentist can decide if you need a full mouth rehabilitation. Dr. Cohen will provide you with a comprehensive examination of your mouth and pay particular attention to:
- The condition of your teeth
- The health of your gums – You may need to have your gums scaled and planed to correct any periodontal disease you have.
- Temporomandibular joints – Dr. Cohen will take a close look at the condition of your jaw muscles and joints to ensure that you can chew correctly and without pain.
- Aesthetics – A part of the therapeutic consultation includes an assessment of the way your mouth and teeth look. Dr. Cohen observes the color, shape, and size of your teeth.
Once your dentist has done a comprehensive consultation to review the status of your mouth, he’ll make a complete plan for treating your entire mouth, giving your teeth a fuller, newer, healthier look. Through step-by-step procedures, your teeth, gums, and mouth can look and feel better than they have in years.
