What is full mouth rehabilitation?
Full mouth rehabilitation means when 80% of teeth need to be reconstructed. This involves reconstructing bite, chewing function, talking function, and getting everything back to normal.
Why should someone consider getting full mouth rehabilitation?
Right now, they are having difficulty because of many missing teeth or broken down teeth. Speech is becoming a bit slurry. They might also have issues such as joint pain because joints are over closing. After all, they don’t have enough stops.
How is a full mouth rehabilitation done?
It is recreating bite and teeth for longevity. It usually entails a combination of all facets of dentistry together. We have to make sure that gums are healthy. We have to save the teeth, which can be saved by root canals, crowns, or fillings. Then we try to replace the missing teeth with different options such as an implant, a bridge, dentures, or even a combination therapy.
Why would someone wait until such a stage?
It can be many reasons. Sometimes people don’t have finances, have phobias, the time involved, or not paying attention and neglecting it to find one day that it has gone too far.
