Who could Benefit from Full Mouth Rehabilitation

When it comes to maintaining your dental health, prevention is key. Having problems treated as early as possible, even before they start manifesting visible symptoms, can be so important. If you opt to delay a particular treatment, it can create a cascading effect that compromises your oral health. Maybe you’ve gotten lax about keeping up your regular schedule of check-ups. Perhaps scheduling conflicts or finances have kept you from getting a procedure done. If you are unhappy with your smile, or don’t smile because you feel embarrassed, Miami Designer Smiles is here to help by offering full mouth rehabilitation.

What is full mouth rehabilitation?  

Full mouth rehabilitation combines several dental procedures: be they general, restorative, or cosmetic. By doing so, a well-trained and experienced dentist can restore your oral health and the appearance of your smile.

How can you tell if you need full mouth rehabilitation?

The problem can start from a small thing—a single missing tooth, a slightly misaligned bite, or damage to a tooth. Many of the symptoms typically reported by patients who undergo a full mouth rehabilitation include pain, difficulty chewing or eating, excessive tooth wear, gum disease, deterioration of the supporting bone structure in the mouth, missing teeth, misaligned teeth, chipped or broken teeth, or mysterious chronic pain emanating from the head, neck, and/or jaw. If you’re experiencing any of these issues, you should schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Otherwise, your problems only are going to get worse.

What can you expect from full mouth rehabilitation?

Every patient is unique, presenting their own smile goals. No two smiles are the same. However, typical full mouth rehabilitation entails combining restorative dental procedures with cosmetic treatments. 

For example, your dentists at Miami Designer Smiles may treat tooth decay by placing fillings, inlay/onlays, or crowns, in cases of significant decay. A root canal can be performed to prevent tooth loss or treat an infected tooth. We can use Invisalign to straighten crooked teeth or correct a misaligned bite. To improve aesthetic issues, Dr. Raul Garcia or Dr. Conchi Sanchez-Garcia can perform a bonding treatment, a teeth whitening treatment, or install porcelain veneers. In a case of missing teeth or teeth that have been deemed “hopeless,” Miami Designer Smiles can replace those teeth with dentures or a dental bridge. We also offer various dental implant options so that you can have new, permanent teeth!

Full mouth rehabilitation takes time. You’ll need to be patient while the different phases of the process are completed. The pace of the procedures also may be influenced by the condition of your teeth and gums, or which treatments are deemed to be of the highest priorities. That’s why at Miami Designer Smiles we sit down with a consultation with any patient who is preparing for full mouth rehabilitation.
