4 Things You Need To Know Before A Full Mouth Rehabilitation Surgery
Scientists say that human teeth are known to have a life expectancy of only around 50 years, which explains why a good number of the people in their 40s and 50s age suffer from missing, chipped and broken teeth. While the teeth suffer the effects of aging, our life expectancy has gone up by decades.
As a result, dental restorations or rehabilitations are gaining popularity as each year goes by. Both seniors, as well as younger patients, are now considering the best function and cosmetic dental treatments to improve their smile. From the crowns and fixed bridges to the best dental implants in Dubai, our dentists have always helped the people of the UAE to restore their teeth to their full glory.
Understanding Full Mouth Rehabilitation
When people have multiple missing teeth or alignment issues due to trauma, decay, injury, fracture, tooth grinding or long-term acid erosion, it leads to poor oral health and hygiene. By combining the various restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures, our dentists have developed full mouth rehabilitation services that will help restore our patients’ teeth and their overall dental health.
Techniques like crowns and fixed bridges, removable partial dentures, full dentures, dental implants and sometimes orthodontic treatments like braces or Invisalign are used to provide complete comfort, beauty, and functionality of the teeth.
So in this blog, we will discuss 4 points you need to consider before saying yes to a full mouth rehabilitation.
The duration of treatment
A full mouth rehabilitation is not a treatment that is completed in a single day. On your first appointment, our dentists will investigate your current dental health. X-rays and lab diagnostics will help determine your oral situation and help the specialist plan the next step. Over the course of the next few appointments, our dentists will share the best course of action with you to restore your dental functionality.
Unlike same-day dental implants, where a gap created by a single tooth is closed, full mouth rehabilitation requires the specialist to completely understand your oral health before determining the best techniques for restoration.
Cost of procedure
The cost of a full mouth rehabilitation is not a fixed amount like in the case of some of the cosmetic dental treatments. Once our specialists determine the procedures required to make the necessary corrections to your teeth, the expenses for each has to be considered for the final price. However, it is important to remember that unlike full dentures, dental rehabilitation helps retain healthy teeth while substituting for the ones that are missing. In short, full mouth rehabilitation promises healthy dentition that fills the role of missing natural teeth perfectly, increasing the overall lifespan of your perfect smile.
The right specialists
Full mouth rehabilitation is not a one-person job. One or more of our specialists will be involved in the restoration process to ensure that the treatment is successful. As each case is unique and has a comprehensive plan, the treatment will be provided by a team of general dentists, periodontists, endodontists, implantologists, orthodontists and cosmetic dentists.
