What's Involved in Full Mouth Rehabilitation

A smile that is crooked, gapped, discolored, and is left with teeth meeting unevenly can be both cosmetically unattractive and functionally painful. If any of this describes your smile, full mouth rehabilitation could be right for you.

At Comfort Dental Spa, our team of compassionate staff and providers deliver a full range of functional and cosmetic dental services to give you the smile you want, need, and deserve. 

Full mouth rehabilitation basics

A full mouth rehabilitation is a process that’s unique to each patient. Your dentist will examine your entire mouth, teeth, jaws, and gums to identify all issues that are keeping you from fully enjoying your smile. Then we’ll work to create a model of what the ideal smile for you looks like and list the procedures we can do to help achieve that ideal.

Many procedures may go into a full mouth rehabilitation:

There might only be a few procedures needed, or you could need a wide range of procedures. Your rehabilitative dentistry could take a few months to a few years to complete. If you’re nervous about dental work, don’t worry. We can use sedation dentistry to make you more comfortable during your visits, and we’ll always make sure you have appropriate pain relief. 

The rehabilitation process varies

You might have genetics that caused teeth to come in crooked, malformed, or discolored. In such cases, most of the work to be done may be orthodontic or cosmetic procedures. We can straighten, whiten, and improve the appearance of your teeth with a variety of different treatments or even cover unsightly tooth issues using veneers.

If you’ve had trauma to the face, you might need oral and maxillofacial surgery to help reconstruct your jaw. Bone grafts can restore strength and structure, and dental implants will replace original teeth for a brilliant, even, and functional smile.

If tooth decay and gum disease have wreaked havoc on your smile, we’ll focus first on restoring health to your gums, and then we’ll shift to planning restorative work to recreate your grin and make it better than ever. 

If you have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, we can work on realigning your jaw to relieve pain and prevent your jaw from “locking,” aligning your bite so you can speak, chew, and smile without throwing it out of alignment.

If you are tired of having to refrain from smiling in pictures or have been living with constant pain from a damaged or malfunctioning smile, now is the time to take action. Call Comfort Dental Spa at 248-306-8753, or schedule an appointment online any time.
