What are the advantages of undergoing full mouth rehabilitation?
Patients who have many missing teeth or severe deterioration of most teeth, may require a full mouth reconstruction using a combination of restorations, veneers, crowns, bridges, dental implants or partial dentures. The oral cavity is a dynamic environment where changes constantly occur, sometimes quickly but more often slowly over time. Changes can be due to a traumatic accident, periodontal disease, shifting teeth, a lifetime of neglect, a destructive habit such as grinding, or a lifetime of dentistry focusing on one tooth at a time and leaving the mouth resembling a patchwork quilt.
Full-mouth reconstruction, by its very nature can be extremely complex. Dental techniques and technologies have come a long way in the past 30 years and patients are often surprised by what can be done. Correct diagnosis and analysis is important to identify and address the causes of the problems in the treatment plan. Treatment is often a non-surgical, comprehensive approach to getting the upper and lower jaws in proper alignment, removing all decay, repairing all chipped, weakened, and broken teeth, and ultimately, creating a healthy, attractive smile that will last for many years.
Our patient here chose a non-surgical option for personal reasons. The patient presented with inadequately fitting upper partial denture and an incorrectly instituted treatment plan resulting over a period of time: multiple loss of teeth that resulted in loss of jaw bone and facial height resulting in an accelerated ageing appearance. We solved the problem by improving the facial height (raising the bite), improving the upper smile line using a combination of porcelain veneers, upper and lower precision milled, highly aesthetic and firm partial dentures to restore the following:
