You deserve a beautiful smile, even if damage, decay, and gum disease have affected your natural teeth. That’s where full mouth rehabilitation comes in. At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we want you to establish a strong bite pattern and enjoy smiling again. We can address your dental health concerns all at once with a full mouth reconstruction that treats and restores every tooth to its original state. Wear and tear as you age causes staining, chipping, crowding, and wear. We can solve painful problems with jaw alignment or bite pattern clashes with just a few simple procedures.
Replacing teeth is just one part of the larger full mouth rehabilitation process. Dental reconstruction can include many procedures aimed to address all the issues affecting your bite pattern, your chewing ability, and the appearance of your smile. A thorough consultation allows us to explore what your smile might look and function like after the restoration work. Then we can begin to work together and develop the most appropriate treatment plan.
The extent of repair and enhancements needed will determine the final full mouth rehabilitation cost. Treatments will begin with jaw and gum health improvements, then repair work to replace missing teeth and deal with any dental reconstruction needed for damaged crowns or filings. Once your oral health is in better condition overall, we can focus on cosmetic improvements to complete the process.
Patients in good general health and without a smoking habit will see the best results from rehabilitation. Even if you have advanced periodontal disease, we can get that issue under control and repair the gum and jaw tissue before completing the other full mouth rehabilitation steps.
Depending on the restorative and cosmetic procedures you choose, you can expect most of the repair work to last for years before needing repairs. Dental implants are considered permanent tooth restoration work and may only need minor maintenance after a decade or two. Dental bridges, crowns, and veneers can last over a decade, depending on how well you care for them. Long-lasting restoration ensures you’ll get years out of your new smile with only minimal work needed in the future to keep it looking great.
Patients may need to quit smoking or improve their general health before committing to this kind of combination treatment. Once the dentist has approved you as healthy enough for the procedures, there’s little else you need to do but keep your appointments. Every rejuvenation process is different, so the dentist may recommend stopping certain medications before the procedures to increase success rates. You may also need to plan for a recovery period after some oral surgeries that play a role in this process. We’ll guide you in exactly how to prepare and recover.
