At Dentists In Annerley, we’re dedicated to not just treating dental issues, but also enhancing your overall wellbeing and confidence through expert full mouth rehabilitation.
Full mouth rehabilitation, also known as full mouth reconstruction, involves a comprehensive series of dental procedures designed to restore the health, function, and appearance of the entire mouth. This extensive treatment can include a combination of procedures like crowns, bridges, veneers, implants, and sometimes orthodontics and periodontal therapy. It’s typically recommended for patients with extensive dental issues, including severe wear, multiple missing teeth, and significant functional or aesthetic concerns.
Patients who might need full mouth rehabilitation include those with multiple broken or worn teeth, extensive tooth decay, severely eroded enamel, advanced periodontal disease, and those who have experienced traumatic dental injuries. It can also benefit individuals with congenital conditions affecting their teeth.
The benefits include improved oral health, enhanced functionality for biting and chewing, relief from discomfort or pain, and a significant improvement in the appearance of the smile. It can also help address issues like headaches or jaw pain associated with bite misalignment.
The duration of full mouth rehabilitation varies greatly depending on the complexity of individual cases and the specific procedures involved. It can range from several months to over a year, with multiple appointments and phases of treatment.
While the procedures involved in full mouth rehabilitation can be extensive, modern dentistry techniques and anaesthesia options make the process as comfortable as possible. Post-treatment discomfort varies but is usually manageable with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication.
Procedures can include dental implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures, root canal therapy, gum disease treatment, orthodontics, bone or soft tissue grafting, and tooth extractions, depending on individual needs.
The cost of full mouth rehabilitation varies widely depending on the extent of treatment required and the specific procedures involved. It’s considered a significant investment in oral health, with costs potentially running into the tens of thousands. Many dental practices offer financing plans to help manage the expense.
