Full Mouth Rehabilitation corrects imperfections in bite position and enhances the appearance of the smile. Anyone with short, worn teeth or those that are chipped and broken throughout the mouth would be an excellent candidate.
What Is Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Tooth can become damaged due to trauma and diseases, lost due to injury or fracture, severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion or tooth grinding, muscle and headache pain or any other reasons. Full mouth rehabilitation, reconstruction or restoration is the work of art that is used to rebuild the tooth and restore the beauty, health and function of mouth in a more cost-effective way.
Usually, the full mouth rehabilitation process may include various cosmic processes including root canal, microscopic dentistry, correction of gummy smile, gum recession, bleeding gums, treatment of bad breath and periodontal pockets, orthodontics, artificial teeth replacement using dental implants or dental crowns and bridges, cast partial dentures, treatment of fractures, oral cancer surgery, corrective jaw surgery, tooth colored fillings, smile designing, teeth whitening, dental bonding and others. Hence, the full mouth rehabilitation procedure required multiple appointments.
What is its Treatment?
Well, if it’s an extra tooth, you want to eventually get it out of there. I usually wait till I see if it is interfering with the normal eruption of the permanent incisors, or shows some other sign that there is trouble. If it’s not causing an immediate problem, you can wait a while, usually till the child is 6 to 8 years old to deal with it so long as you are monitoring the situation. If it will erupt on its own, then we can just extract it like a normal tooth (doesn’t happen very often). If it does not or you can just tell that it’s going nowhere, it needs to be surgical removed, hopefully “timed” correctly. I don’t like to do it too soon as I don’t want there to be any damage to the developing tooth buds from the surgical procedure. Eventually, you do need to have them removed. Once it is removed it is likely the new teeth will erupt in a fairly normal pattern.
