Full mouth rehabilitation refers to optimising the health of the entire mouth and/or a full month reconstruction including the teeth, gums and bite for a patient. Most of the time, a combination of dental procedures are required to restore the function and health of all the teeth.
When is a Full Mouth Rehabilitation required?
Patients who are born with conditions such as Ectodermal Dysplasia, Ameliogenesis, or Dentinogenisis Imperfecta may need a full mouth rehabilitation.
Patients who have multiple missing teeth, badly decayed teeth with large cavities, cracked or broken teeth or teeth damaged by bruxism (teeth grinding) or other poor dental habits may also require a full mouth rehabilitation.
Patients who suffers from oral cancer may also require a unique type of full mouth rehabilitation that involves restoration of the missing bone structures of the oral cavity.
Dental Treatments in a Full Mouth Rehabilitation
A combination of dental procedures may be included in a full mouth rehabilitation. These include crowns and bridges, orthodontics, veneers, dental implants or dentures which will restore the dental health, aesthetics as well as improve the bite for the patient.
