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 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 on the status of your mouth, he’ll make a complete plan for treating your entire mouth, giving it a full, newer, healthier look. Through step-by-step procedures, your teeth, gums, and mouth can look and feel better than they have in years.
