Rehabilitation of the whole mouth may enhance the health, appearance, and function of your gums, teeth, and jaw for better chewing, biting, and speech, along with a more attractive smile. This procedure at City of Oaks Dental can contain (but is not limited to) inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges, veneers, dental implants, and dentures. Certain reconstruction procedures may also require a gum or bone graft. Dr. Vivian Throop performs full-mouth rehabilitation at her practice in Raleigh, NC, which may help to improve both the health of your mouth and the appearance of your smile. She will listen to all of your concerns before designing your personal treatment program.

What Are the Benefits of Full-Mouth Rehabilitation?

At City of Oaks Dental, full-mouth rehabilitation is an in-depth approach to oral healthcare with myriad advantages for individuals in Raleigh, NC and the surrounding areas. These advantages include:

  • Boosting dental health
  • Upgrading cosmetic appearance
  • Fixing chipped teeth
  • Added comfort when chewing or talking
  • Lessening tooth pain or soreness
  • Preventing additional dental problems
  • Strengthening self-confidence
  • Long-lasting dental solutions

Full-mouth reconstruction might be needed if you've lost some teeth or have several teeth with large fillings that are ready for replacement. You might also have teeth with significant decay or teeth that are broken, cracked, or badly worn down due to bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). You might have dental conditions or even a hereditary disorder like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (translucent or discolored teeth), which require extensive restoration. You might want to replace older dental crowns or just want to improve your mouth for better health or comfort. In more complex cases, your degraded teeth and gums might have created sunken cheeks or another visible facial deformity. Full-mouth reconstruction can revive the entire face when the ideal number of teeth are in your mouth.

Following a complete examination of your teeth, gums, and bite, Dr. Throop might recommend full-mouth rehabilitation. Your unique treatment program will be generated, depending on the condition of your teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, facial muscles, and dental bite. Dr. Throop will review your treatment and sedation options and her own recommendations in your appointment to ensure your treatment plan fits your wants and goals. As soon as your treatment program is ready, she will discuss exactly what to expect in your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your appointments. Generally, full-mouth rehabilitation may require a few visits to City of Oaks Dental. Dr. Throop will plan your treatments with time in between to allow your mouth to recover before the next step is taken.

After every treatment in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, Dr. Throop will explain what to expect and how to look after your mouth. She can prescribe antibiotics or pain medicine that needs to be filled prior to your process and taken as directed. You may feel some discomfort or swelling after certain processes, like implant placement that may make it tough to eat, so a soft or liquid food diet could be right for you. Once your full-mouth reconstruction is done, you should maintain your oral health with proper flossing and brushing at home. Yearly dental examinations and bi-annual cleanings at City of Oaks Dental will also be helpful. During your exams, Dr. Throop can track the health of your restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jawbone.

If you are searching for a dental solution to your complex dental issues, full-mouth rehabilitation may be the answer. Schedule a consultation at City of Oaks Dental in Raleigh, NC. Dr. Throop can make your distinctive treatment plan to fit your needs and goals. She will help improve your mouth so you can enjoy a gorgeous, healthy smile.
