What Full Mouth Rehabilitation Can Do for You

May 17, 2021 Jeffrey T. Baker, DDS PC

What is it? Is it for me?

Full mouth rehabilitation is an umbrella term that refers to using multiple kinds of dentistry and dental procedures to restore the appearance, function, and overall health of one’s mouth.

While you might not need work done in all of these areas, full mouth rehabilitation consists of cosmetic dentistry, tooth repair/replacement, and bite correction/alignment. 

Restoring the function of your mouth is a top priority because that will increase its health and prevent further health problems if not taken care of. We also want you to be happy and proud of your smile because what’s the use of having a healthy smile if you don’t like to show it off! This is why we offer a number of cosmetic procedures to do just that.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

There’s a number of reasons why you may need full mouth rehabilitation. If you had little to no dental/orthodontic treatment when you were a kid and into your teenage years, or if you recently had a serious injury to your jaw and/or teeth you may need multiple procedures to restore your oral health and wellbeing.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is the field of improving the appearance of your teeth when you smile and talk. Whether you choose porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or ClearCorrect, our goal is to help you have a smile you love.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells adhered to the front of your front teeth to cover chipped, cracked, short, or discolored teeth. Minimally invasive compared to crowns and stain-resistant, porcelain veneers help you have more confidence in your smile and peace of mind.

Professional teeth whitening options are superior to over-the-counter methods, and here’s why:

  • A lot of over-the-counter products actually damage your teeth
    • -They’re also less effective at whitening
  • Our expert dentists know how to get results without hurting your teeth
  • Our top-grade products can lift stains in as little as one appointment

Bite Correction/Alignment

ClearCorrect is a great alternative to traditional metal braces for people who want straighter teeth. When you wear the custom-made aligner trays for 22 hours a day for a matter of months, with proper care, you will see results.

Straight teeth aren’t just a cosmetic fix. Crooked teeth are more likely to develop cavities and gum disease because they’re harder to properly clean by missing leaving more harmful bacteria.

Tooth Repair & Replacement

Fillings/Crowns are both ways to repair damaged teeth so we grouped them together but they do have multiple differences. It mainly comes down to how damaged your tooth is. A filling is more likely the less damaged the tooth is; whereas, the more damaged it is the more likely a crown is. Crowns cover the whole visible portion of the tooth while fillings, not surprisingly, “fill” the cavity/decayed area.

Dental bridges are a way to replace a missing tooth by anchoring a prosthetic tooth in between two healthy teeth by using crowns on both of them. Dental implants are also tooth replacements, but consist of a crown attached to a titanium root that is bonded into the jaw making it more secure than a dental bridge.
