What Procedures Are Involved in Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
As a first step, the dentist will perform a complete exam on your mouth. This helps them decide on your teeth's present condition and what measures are necessary to correct the defects. However, several standard procedures are involved in full mouth rehabilitation, such as:
Cosmetic procedures are common with teeth restoration efforts. Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and gum recontouring may be recommended. This will ensure the good health of your teeth and gums together with a beautiful smile.
Orthodontics may be suggested for patients with misaligned teeth. This may include treatments such as traditional metal braces or Invisalign or expanders, spacers, and retainers.
Periodontal treatments are also a part of full mouth rehabilitation. Gum surgery, root planing, scaling, and gum recontouring are standard procedures.
These treatments are advised to help patients who struggle with teeth grinding and related symptoms.
In case of missing teeth, your dentist may recommend implants. An implant will imitate your original tooth from root to crown, thus giving your smile a natural appearance.
