Q: What is full mouth rehabilitation?

Full mouth rehabilitation is a term used to describe a combination of treatments performed to correct extensive dental damage and create a healthy, functional smile. In the hands of a skilled professional, full mouth rehabilitation also creates an appealing smile. 


This approach is also sometimes referred to as full mouth reconstruction or smile rehabilitation. It requires advanced training and the ability to assess a patient’s bone structure and determine which treatments best align with their specific set of needs. 


The planning process is arguably the most important step in full mouth rehabilitation. At Aesthetic Smiles Dentistry, you begin by sitting down with your dentist to discuss what you hope to achieve through your treatment. 


Your practitioner explains what to expect regarding the treatments, timeline, and expense. 


Q: What kinds of issues bring people in for full mouth rehabilitation?

People come in for full mouth rehabilitation for several different reasons. A traumatic experience like a car accident or sports injury sometimes creates severe dental injuries. 


Other people require full mouth rehabilitation after years of dental decay, often due to limited access to high-quality dental care during childhood. Sadly, criminal acts often lead to dental damage, including domestic violence. 


For some, full mouth rehabilitation is a well-deserved reward after navigating addiction recovery. These cases are especially rewarding to the team at Aesthetic Smiles Dentistry and serve to prepare individuals for a new approach to life. 

Q: What treatments are included in full mouth rehabilitation?

Your full mouth rehabilitation journey is unique and shaped to accommodate your specific set of dental health needs. Most people benefit from a combination of restorative treatments, in some cases followed by cosmetic treatment. 


Some of the treatments often included in full mouth rehabilitation include:

  • Dental crowns
  • Bridges
  • Full or partial dentures
  • Extractions
  • Fillings
  • Root canals
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Dental implants
  • Porcelain veneers

Full mouth rehabilitation takes time, as many treatments require a period of healing in between each of the steps. You may need to have some teeth extracted before moving on to the following procedure. Be patient, and rest assured you have the full support of your dental care team as you move closer to your goal.
