Throughout your life as you age, your mouth and smile can take on quite a bit of wear and damage. Whether from decay, injury, accidents, just aging or wear, your smile may look differently than it used to. A full-mouth rehabilitation is a comprehensive and conservative overhaul of your smile. A full-mouth rehabilitation addresses both health concerns and cosmetic issues. To upgrade your smile, you and your dentist will first need to decide what your mouth needs, what your smile goals are, and how you want to get there. A full-mouth rehabilitation may likely include several different treatments spread across multiple consultations and appointments with your dentist.
Do I Qualify?
A candidate that qualifies for full-mouth rehabilitation is someone that has several dental issues, such as: missing multiple teeth, several damaged teeth, damaged or broken restorations that need to be repaired or replaced. To qualify, a candidate is someone who may have oral health issues, but is relatively healthy overall.
Conservative and Comprehensive
Conservative treatment when talking about dentistry means only doing as much treatment that needs to be done. Comprehensive means that any issues are addressed. A full-mouth rehabilitation is both comprehensive and conservative. You want to make sure that any important health issues are addressed, while also comprehensively addressing any cosmetic concerns. Imagine it like worrying about painting a car before you address that it needs a new transmission. When planning a full-mouth rehabilitation, your doctor will consider your basic health needs first. If you need fillings to restore decayed teeth, that may be dealt with prior to whitening your teeth. The health of your smile has the utmost importance. Along with treating your smile’s health concerns and getting it healthy, a full-mouth rehabilitation can get you that appearance of smile that you are looking for. Your smile goals can be attainable.
