What is meant by “full-mouth rehabilitation?”
In short, full-mouth rehabilitation (or sometimes called reconstruction or rejuvenation) is the individual recreation of each tooth in a mouth. Full-mouth reconstruction is needed when the teeth are worn down, broken or missing, causing problems in both the bite and appearance of the mouth. The Medical Center Dental Group can totally rejuvenate your mouth, creating a healthy, beautiful smile in as few as two visits. This process is so successful that others cannot distinguish the real teeth from the restored teeth.
How do I know whether I am a candidate
for full-mouth rehabilitation?
If your teeth appear short and worn, or completely overlap your bottom teeth, or if you experience pain in the jaw joint, headaches, back pain, muscle tenderness or clicking or popping of the jaw, then you should consider this procedure. Having a beautiful smile is important and this procedure will give you that, along with alleviating the cause of the problem.
What happens during the office visits?
Full-mouth rehabilitation involves a preparation appointment and a seating appointment. During the preparation appointment, the doctor will remove all of your old restorations and any decay that has occurred. Then, impressions of the underlying healthy tooth structure are made and temporary teeth are made. These temporaries are worn until the final appointment, about three weeks later. At the seating appointment, your temporaries are removed and the final restorations are placed, creating the gorgeous, rehabilitated smile you never thought you could have!
