Full Mouth RehabilitationMerritt Island, FL
Your mouth does a lot for you every day. It allows you to eat a wide variety of foods, speak with your friends and co-workers, and give wide, confident smiles. The mouth consists of several components that enable it to perform these essential functions, including the teeth, your gums, and your jawbone. There are numerous issues that can affect the health of these components, the health of your mouth, and the ability of your mouth to perform critical functions. At Florida Prosthodontics, we can restore the health of your mouth, its ability to perform crucial functions, and the appearance of your smile, with full mouth rehabilitation.
What Is a Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
A full mouth rehabilitation is a customized treatment performed to rebuild and restore your mouth following oral health issues. It is similar to a smile makeover, which focuses on restoring the appearance of your smile, except that a full mouth rehabilitation also focuses on restoring your oral health. Because your needs are unique to you, we can customize a treatment plan to provide you with the best results possible.
What Procedures May Be Performed?
There are several different procedures that can be used to treat oral health and aesthetic issues in your mouth. Common procedures involved in a full mouth rehabilitation include:
|•||Tooth restorations such as porcelain veneers, ceramic crowns, and tooth-colored fillings.|
|•||Gum disease treatments.|
Is a Full Mouth Rehabilitation Right for Me?
If you are experiencing oral health issues that are affecting the health, appearance, and functions of your mouth, you may be a candidate for a full mouth rehabilitation. You may be a candidate if you have suffered issues such as tooth damage, advanced stages of gum disease, facial trauma, or other issues. To determine if a full mouth rehabilitation is the best course of action for you, we perform a thorough oral exam to determine the exact issues that are affecting your mouth. The exam consists of:
|•||A visual exam. We look at the visible structures of your teeth, including your teeth and your gums, checking for tooth damage, tooth decay, and gum disease. We also take a look at the alignment of your teeth and your jaw.|
|•||X-rays. With x-rays, we can see the hidden areas of your mouth, including between your teeth and under your gums. We can check for decay between the teeth, check for damage to your tooth roots, and assess the condition of your jawbone, including bone loss and fractures.|
Getting Your Full Mouth Rehabilitation
After we have fully assessed the condition of your mouth, we can create a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs. Most full mouth rehabilitations take 2 to 3 appointments to complete. Your exact recovery period will depend on the procedures you are having done. Some procedures have no downtime while others may require several months for a full recovery. After your treatment is complete, we schedule you for follow-ups to make sure that you are healing properly and your mouth is fully restored.
With a full mouth rehabilitation, we can help you regain the functions of your mouth, its health, and your smile. Call Florida Prosthodontics today at (321) 635-1175 to schedule your consultation and find out if a full mouth rehabilitation is right for you.
