Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitation, restoration or reconstruction are the terms used for the process of rebuilding all the teeth of upper and lower jaws.
Full mouth reconstruction involves several disciplines of dentistry, like a prosthodontist, periodontist, orthodontist and an endodontist. Since Dr. Kakkar specializes in both periodontics and prosthodontics, he is in a unique position to perform complex dental reconstruction treatments.
One needs a full mouth rehabilitation when:
- There is tooth loss because of trauma or decay, or fractured teeth.
- Loss of tooth structure from grinding or clenching. Other factors like long-term acidic erosion from foods, drinks or acid reflux.
- Chronic jaw and muscle pain due to worn teeth and clenching and grinding may indicate the need for rebuilding ones teeth to improve the bite.
What is Involved in Full Mouth Rehabilitation
In order to determine the extent of the dental problems and treatment options, the doctors will perform a comprehensive examination of your mouth. This will involve but not limited to detailed medical and dental history, radiographs, study models, condition of existing teeth, existing restorations, decay, root canal issues, periodontal health, TMJ problems. A healthy foundation is important for this or any other dental treatment.
