A full mouth rehabilitation typically replaces or rebuilds all the teeth in your mouth. It’s commonly recommended if you’re struggling with severely worn or decayed teeth, or if you have missing teeth. A full mouth rehabilitation is a completely individualized service that may require several different dental treatments to address your dental concerns.
If you opt for full mouth rehabilitation, your dentist uses cosmetic and restorative treatments to improve the appearance and function of your teeth.
Some of the most common full mouth rehabilitation treatments available at Manhasset Dental Arts include:
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit perfectly over your damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, and color. They are available in a wide array of materials, including ceramic, metal, and porcelain-fused-to-metal.
Dental bridges replace missing teeth by using your surrounding teeth for support. Your dentist places crowns on the teeth surrounding your socket — the empty space left behind by your missing tooth — and places a pontic, or false tooth, in the middle.
A veneer is a custom-made composite resin or porcelain restoration that fits over your tooth to hide imperfections. Veneers can help improve your smile if you have chipped teeth, severe tooth discoloration, or misshapen teeth.
A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces your tooth root if you have a missing tooth. Once placed, dental implants permanently bond to your jaw and hold your prosthetic teeth — dentures or dental crowns — securely in place.
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that allow you to smile, speak, and chew after losing your natural teeth. If you only have a few missing teeth in your mouth, you can opt for partial dentures.
The full mouth rehabilitation process takes several visits to Manhasset Dental Arts to achieve your desired results. Because it’s completely individualized, there’s no standard time frame for a full mouth rehabilitation.
The first step in creating your plan is taking X-rays and scans of your entire mouth. Manhasset Dental Arts is fully equipped with digital scanners and dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) scanners to create the most accurate map of your mouth possible. This helps your dentist determine exactly which treatments you need to restore your smile.
