Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth reconstruction, rehabilitation and restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in one or both the upper and lower jaws.
The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:
- Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
- Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
- Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid
erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding.
- Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring
adjustments to the bite (occlusion).
The full mouth restoration process typically begins with an initial exam and evaluation of the generalized health of the teeth and the mouth. This will determine the length and course of treatment. Once treatment begins it is usually separated into multiple visits and can include the use of long term provisional crowns. Every case is different and time frame varies.
