5 Reasons to Consider Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Though more and more people are taking better care of their teeth, millions of Americans still suffer from tooth decay, tooth loss, and gum disease. These dental issues not only affect your oral health, but also your self-esteem and self-confidence.

You may feel all hope is lost when you’re suffering from so many dental problems, but with advances in dental care and treatments you have options. Here at Comfort Dental Spa in Farmington HIlls, Michigan, our team of dental experts can fix your dental problems and your smile with a full mouth rehabilitation

A full mouth rehabilitation may sound like a daunting endeavor, but there are many reasons why you should consider the comprehensive solution to your dental problem. 

1. Restore your worn-down teeth

Your teeth are made from the strongest material in your body. Over time, you wear away the tough enamel that surrounds and protects your teeth. This may change the shape and color of your teeth and make them more sensitive. 

Though eating certainly takes its toll on your teeth, consuming more acidic foods (orange juice, carbonated beverages) may accelerate the process. Teeth grinding, which you may not even realize you’re doing, also wears away the biting surface of your teeth.

With a full mouth rehabilitation, we create a plan that can restore your worn-down teeth and keep them strong and healthy. 

2. Alleviate a source of chronic pain

Chronic pain may affect any part of your body, including your jaw and mouth. In fact, your bite may be the root cause of your jaw pain or headaches. How your upper and lower teeth meet — occlusion — when you bite down affects oral function, chewing, and aesthetics. 

Misalignment of your teeth affects your bite and places additional stress on certain teeth (increasing the rate of wearing) and jaw muscles. It also affects your chewing and speech, and may lead to other dental problems like cavities and tooth loss. 

To alleviate your pain and fix your misalignment we may include orthodontics or Invisalign® in your full mouth rehabilitation.  

3. Complete your smile

Are you missing teeth? You’re not alone. About 120 million people in the United States are missing at least one tooth, and 36 million are missing all of their teeth, according to the American College of Prosthodontists.

With advances in dental technology and treatment, you have several options for replacing absent teeth and completing your smile. Whether it's an implant, partial denture, or bridge. 

Dental implants are durable, last a lifetime and make an excellent choice for your full mouth rehabilitation.  

4. Fix fractured, chipped, or damaged teeth

Life is unpredictable, and you can damage your teeth and mouth in many ways. 

Maybe you chipped a tooth after a slip and fall or knocked out your tooth playing ice hockey.  Whatever the cause or problem, we can repair or replace your damaged tooth with a porcelain cap, porcelain veneers, or a dental implant. 

There’s no need to live with a smile you’re ashamed of!

5. Treat gum disease

Like tooth loss, gum disease, or periodontal disease, affects millions of adults in the US. When left untreated, gum disease increases your risk of tooth loss.

We offer a number of periodontal services to treat gum disease, improve oral health, and reduce your risk of more serious dental issues. These include antibiotic treatment, periodontal scaling and root planing, and pocket reduction surgery, just to name a few. 

With our full mouth rehabilitation, we aim to improve oral health and the look of your smile. Whatever dental concern you have, we have a treatment that can fix it. Contact our office by phone or book a consultation online today.
