Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is full mouth rehabilitation?

Full mouth rehabilitation, also called full mouth restoration or full mouth reconstruction, is a term used to describe a combination of treatments that restore optimal dental health. Just as no two smiles are ever exactly alike, full mouth rehabilitation is also a highly individualized process. 

Some of the treatments that can be part of full mouth rehabilitation include:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants or implant supported dentures
  • Root canal
  • Gum grafting
  • Bone grafting
  • Extractions
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Inlays or onlays
  • Braces or clear aligners

Some people may need several treatments, while others may require only some treatments to achieve optimal results. 

Why do people need full mouth rehabilitation?

Anything that damages your teeth, gums, and bone tissue can lead to the need for full mouth rehabilitation. In some cases, the damage has progressed gradually over time. In other instances, a sudden, unexpected event leads to extensive dental damage. 

Traumatic injury or sports injuries are a common cause of dental damage. Car accidents, biking collisions, or a blow to the face during hockey, football, or boxing can all lead to the need for extensive restoration work. 

Teeth grinding, also called bruxism, is a common cause of dental damage. Your rehabilitation process might include repairing worn down teeth while also incorporating a night guard to protect your teeth from further damage. 

In other cases, certain illnesses or treatments can cause dental problems. Some forms of chemotherapy may damage teeth or reduce immune function to the point that teeth need to be removed to avoid serious infection. 

Advanced decay can also destroy the structural integrity of teeth or damage your gum tissue. Restoration work like crowns and root canals can repair some forms of damage or infection, and revitalization and other precision therapies can sometimes save damaged teeth. In other cases, extractions and tooth replacement options may offer the best available path. 

How do I know which dental treatments are right for me?

When you come to Cisco Dental for a full mouth rehabilitation consultation, you’ll begin by discussing your goals. Then, a full dental exam gives Dr. Donald the information needed to guide you toward the treatments that best align with your needs. The goal is always to restore a stable, healthy bite, while also enhancing the appearance of your smile. 

There’s never any pressure to choose one treatment path over another. You’re welcome to ask questions about various options and express any concerns you have about the process. You’ll learn what to expect in terms of the timeline for your full mouth rehabilitation, and you can also discuss payment options.
