What is Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Full mouth rehabilitation may also be called full mouth restoration and both terms are used to describe a combination of treatments to help restore or rebuild missing or damaged teeth. This may be necessary if teeth have become fractured or damaged, or have been lost completely due to decay, infection or trauma. Full mouth rehabilitation can address problems caused by worn down teeth, where some structure may have been lost as a result of acid erosion or teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism).
Which Treatments May Be Used During Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Treatment can include repairing teeth with crowns that completely cover up a damaged tooth to protect it, or replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge. Other procedures such as inlays and onlays can all be used to repair large cavities in teeth which are unsuitable for conventional composite fillings. Sometimes orthodontics can be useful to correct misaligned teeth and malocclusion (bad bite).
