Full Mouth Dental Rehabilitation
Full-mouth rehabilitation is a complete restoration of every tooth in the mouth. It is typically performed on people with severely worn teeth or TMJ problems.
Full-mouth reconstruction used to mean a long protracted, disjointed series of procedures with a difficult-to-see endpoint that possibly could include extracting all the teeth and making dentures.
Age, illness, or accidents can sometimes lead to extreme tooth loss. When a patient experiences the loss of several teeth, our dentists may recommend a full-mouth rehabilitation to correct the problem. Previously, dentures were the solution to address several lost teeth; however modern technology and dental advancements offer the option of a full mouth rehab using dental implants.
Implants offer many advantages over dentures. Following is a comparative list of the disadvantages of dentures versus the advantages of a full-mouth rehab procedure with dental implants.
Disadvantages of Dentures
- Compromise integrity of facial structures
- Accelerate visible aging due to unattractive changes in facial appearance
- Cause pain, sore spots, and denture breath
- Require relining as bone melts away
- Require adhesives
- Cause an inability to eat certain foods
- Contribute to embarrassment in social situations when denture moves or falls out
Long-term Benefits of Implant-Supported Tooth Replacement
- Virtually stops bone loss/deterioration
- Maintains integrity of facial structure
- Improves facial appearance, restoring lost lip support and minimizing wrinkles
- Increases comfort
- Restores natural biting and chewing capacity
