Full Mouth Rehabilitation Q & A

What does ‘full-mouth rehabilitation’ mean?

Full-mouth rehabilitation is a carefully planned series of dental procedures and treatments aimed at addressing multiple issues. The purpose is to improve the appearance and functionality of your teeth, as well as address oral-health issues like decay, gum disease or other damage.

Full-mouth rehabilitation is also often performed in patients with congenital issues or damage following maxillofacial surgery or trauma. Full-mouth rehabilitation can, and often does, involve both restorative and cosmetic procedures to help each patient achieve their own unique treatment objectives.

What kinds of procedures are involved in full-mouth rehabilitation?

One of the benefits of full-mouth rehabilitation is that it can include a wide variety of procedures custom-selected for each patient's unique oral health needs and treatment goals. Any type of procedure can be a part of a full-mouth rehabilitation treatment plan, including restorative procedures like bridges, implants, and cavity treatments, as well as cosmetic procedures like veneers, teeth whitening and Invisalign® orthodontic care.

Other procedures that can be included:

  • Teeth cleaning
  • Periodontal cleaning and care
  • Crown lengthening
  • Jaw repositioning
  • Gum restoration/repair
  • Shaping and reducing of natural teeth
  • Placement of braces or other alignment devices
  • Bone grafting
  • Gum grafting

Each patient's plan of care will be carefully mapped out to address every issue in sequence for the best results possible.

How can I tell which treatments might be good for my needs?

Your full=mouth restoration treatment plan is developed during your consultation appointment. Your dentist will take a thorough history, complete a full dental exam, and take a full series of dental X-rays.

This assessment helps to identify the procedures that are best suited to your oral health needs and objectives. Full-mouth restoration involves several steps or phases and can take several months. Careful planning is important for the best outcome possible.

Often, simple, less-invasive procedures are done first, to heal infections and prepare your mouth for more complex treatments. Procedures need to be done in a certain order and need to allow your bones, teeth, gums and oral tissues to heal in between procedures.
