When several dental issues occur together, they can impair the overall functionality, health, and appearance of the smile. This can also affect the patient's self-confidence and overall health as well. At Prosthodontics Atlanta, we offer a customized full mouth reconstruction treatment plan that restores damaged teeth, rehabilitates oral health, and addresses several dental issues at once to help patients have a rejuvenated smile.
Full-mouth rehabilitation is a term that describes the process of restoring or replacing all of the teeth in a patient's mouth. Often, patients have multiple restorative or reconstructive treatments performed during full-mouth rehabilitation. These treatments can include dental fillings, onlays and inlays, dental crowns and bridges, dental implants, and periodontal therapies.
If you have several of the following concerns, you can benefit from a full-mouth rehabilitation process:
A full mouth rehabilitation can include any combination of the following procedures:
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are a cosmetic treatment that can mask a number of dental flaws.
A dental crown is a dental restoration that completely covers a tooth to hide imperfections and add strength to the damaged or weakened tooth.
The bridge is an artificial tooth supported by a dental crown on either side. This artificial tooth will replace one or more missing teeth. The dental crowns are cemented to the natural teeth adjacent to the gap. They are designed to mimic natural tooth structure and blend in with your smile.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that acts as an artificial tooth root. The implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone and left to heal. Once fully healed, the implant fuses with the jawbone, forming a solid foundation for artificial teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of teeth.
Invisalign is a type of invisible orthodontic treatment that is worn over the teeth to straighten them comfortably.
Gum surgery is performed on patients with gum disease, which is one of the most common oral health problems. Gum disease results from bacteria in the mouth, which cause inflammation in the gums. Gum disease can lead to serious damage to teeth and gums.
One common component of full-mouth restoration is tooth whitening. Teeth whitening can help patients get a brighter, whiter smile that's better able to complement their new teeth.
Full-mouth rehabilitation involves rebuilding and restoring your entire mouth. Full-mouth rehabilitation can correct both functional and aesthetic problems that cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile. It can also improve your overall oral health by addressing problems like tooth decay, gum disease, and bite alignment issues.
A full-mouth rehabilitation uses a combination of restorative dentistry treatments to improve the entire mouth. This treatment can address dental issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. It can also correct cosmetic problems like misshapen or discolored teeth. The entire process is usually performed over the course of a few appointments and may involve a consultation with a dentist.
