What Is Full Mouth Rehabilitation?

Full mouth rehabilitation is a comprehensive procedure for restoring the health, function, and beauty of your smile. It’s a custom procedure, specifically designed for the current state of your mouth.

Common reasons for full mouth reconstruction.

Common Reasons for
Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Full-mouth rehabilitation helps people with widespread damage to their mouth. Here are some of the more common reasons why people might want this procedure.

Mismatched Restorations

If you’ve had a lifetime of dental problems, you might have a mouth full of prosthetics that aren’t working well together. Perhaps that’s because they were placed by general dentists who might not have had the expertise to do a great job. Perhaps you didn’t realize how important it might be to match your restorations. Or perhaps over time, the different materials, fit, and design of restorations have become clear.

As a result, you might experience poor function, an uncomfortable bite, poor oral health, and frequent restoration failures. Our prosthodontists can design a comprehensive solution for replacing all your restorations so that your new restorations look and work great together.

Dental Trauma

Falls, car accidents, sporting accidents, and violence are all common causes of extensive dental trauma. No matter how badly your teeth and jaw might be damaged, full mouth rehabilitation can restore a beautiful, healthy, and functional mouth.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss among American adults. In addition to tooth loss, gum disease can lead to bone loss, and treatment may require additional extractions and the surgical removal of infected or damaged bone.

In this case, full-mouth rehabilitation is often a partnership between prosthodontists and periodontists.

Oral Cancer

Cancer can be highly destructive, and sometimes the treatment has to be equally destructive. Treatments like surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy can lead to a loss of teeth and bone. Full mouth rehabilitation can restore what you’ve lost to give you back your functional bite and attractive smile.

Birth or Developmental Defects

Defects from birth or during childhood may require extensive rehabilitation to allow an individual to achieve a healthy and functional bite and an attractive smile. Full mouth rehabilitation can also help with speech, swallowing, and other functions. Our specialists can provide maxillofacial prosthetics in the oral cavity and beyond.

Your Full Mouth Rehabilitation Consultation

Since every full mouth rehabilitation is custom-designed for a patient, it must start with a detailed consultation to help us plan your procedure.

For the first step in the consultation, your dentist may want to listen to your description of your current condition and what you hope to achieve. It’s important to be honest. If you’re looking for a simple, functional restoration, say so, but if having a beautiful smile is equally important, let us know. Often, it’s easy to achieve both functional and aesthetic goals together. It’s also important to let us know how you feel now and how you want to feel. Your emotional outcome matters as much to us as the functional and cosmetic ones.

Before your appointment, your dentist will review documentation, x-rays, and other imaging sent by your general dentist or referring physician. They may ask you some questions about the documentation and imaging they reviewed. Next, they will perform an exam. If they don’t have enough information, they might request additional imagery or try to schedule a consultation with your general dentist or physician.

They will discuss treatment options with you if they have enough information. Often, there are multiple approaches to achieving your desired goals. Your dentist will explain the options, including their advantages and disadvantages. They may recommend one particular option, but deciding if, how, and when to proceed is always yours.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation Is a Team Effort

Often, full mouth rehabilitation depends on the work of multiple dentists and doctors. At South Bay Prosthodontics, we have extensive experience working as part of a reconstructive dentistry team. We are prepared to lead your full mouth rehabilitation and can put together a top-notch team. We can assemble the team or simply refer you to specialists you might want on your team.

We also know how to participate in a team led by another dentist or physician. We know how to follow your team’s leader, providing our prosthodontic expertise as they direct. We’ll make sure you get the best results from your prosthetics.
