WHAT IS Full-Mouth Rehabilitation?
Regardless of why your teeth and oral health have deteriorated, Dr. Forbes can give you a strong, healthy, vibrant smile again through full-mouth reconstruction. At your visit, the doctor may take radiographs, examine your teeth, review your existing dental work, check occlusion (how upper and lower teeth fit together), and learn about your overall oral health. This information will allow Dr. Forbes to understand your situation and how to help you.
Esthetics are also an important consideration in planning a full-mouth reconstruction. Dr. Forbes will look at the shape, size, color, and proportion of your teeth, and take into account your gums, mouth, lips, and face.
These are some procedures that may be involved in a full-mouth restoration:
Prophylactic teeth cleaning and gum care
Preparation of your natural tooth structure before veneers, crowns, or bridges can be placed
Crown lengthening to render healthy tooth structure available for possible bridges or crowns
Positioning of temporary restorations with the purpose of getting comfortable with your new teeth and the feel of your new occlusion or mouth
Installing permanent restorations, such as inlays/onlays, crowns, bridges, or veneers
Shaping of the gum tissue to produce harmony and balance in your smile
Braces that will help shift your teeth into the best possible position for reconstruction
Replacement of missing teeth with dental implants and restoration
Grafting of bone or soft tissue to improve the stability of your teeth, planned implants, and/or other restorations
