What Is Full-Mouth Rehabilitation?
Full-mouth rehabilitation uses a series of dental procedures to help rebuild and replace many or all of your teeth. Our practice understands that the health of your smile is important for your overall well-being and is committed to supporting you throughout the process. Our restorations can provide significant functional and aesthetic benefits, including helping you eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Our practice is proud to also offer implant-supported restorations alongside our traditional options. Some of the reasons why you may need full-mouth rehabilitation include:
- Multiple damaged or lost teeth due to dental trauma
- Extensive tooth decay or gum disease, which can result in tooth loss
- Severe tooth wear caused by grinding or acid erosion
- Genetic conditions that result in poorly developed teeth
Because full-mouth rehabilitation is usually for those who have extensive dental issues, it typically requires several appointments to transform and repair your smile. We will work closely with you to determine your needs and establish treatment goals.
Dr. Kuban considers your dental and medical history and uses detailed imaging tools, like intraoral cameras, to evaluate your smile and craft a custom treatment plan. We can work at your pace to restore your smile so you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the process, including between appointments. You can expect us to also prioritize your convenience and do multiple treatments on the same day when possible.
Protecting Your Smile With Crowns
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration used to cover a compromised tooth. Significantly decayed or damaged teeth can be painful and sensitive, impacting your daily life, the function of your bite, and the aesthetic appearance of your smile. These custom-made prosthetics are designed to fully encase the tooth, restoring its function and protecting it from further damage.
Crowns are a versatile treatment that works on nearly any tooth, from incisors to molars. We customize our crowns to look and feel as natural as possible, seamlessly blending in with the rest of your smile. Our dentist begins by examining, cleaning, and shaping the problem tooth. Then, we take a detailed impression of your smile and send it to a trusted local dental lab. We will fit a temporary crown to help protect your tooth. Once your crown has arrived, we will invite you back to our office to place the final restoration.
Replacing Missing Teeth with Bridges
Bridges are a restoration made to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. These prosthetic teeth are attached to your natural teeth using crowns that anchor the bridge on either side of the gap in your smile. Dental bridges can also be supported with dental implants. Crafting your custom bridge begins with cleaning and shaping the anchor teeth to prepare them for crowns. We place a temporary bridge while a local lab creates your restoration. Then, we invite you back for a second appointment to place your final bridge.
Some of the main benefits of dental bridges include:
- Restoring your ability to chew and speak properly
- Preventing teeth from shifting, helping maintain alignment
- Being durable enough to withstand daily use
- Distributing bite forces, preventing excessive strain on individual teeth
Reliable Full and Partial Dentures
When you've lost a significant number of teeth, Dr. Kuban will likely recommend dentures to help renew your smile. Dentures are prosthetic teeth designed to resemble your teeth and gums. They can be either fixed or removable and are durable enough for day-to-day use. Typically, they are made with a pink acrylic base for the gums and natural-looking, durable materials for the teeth. The main options for dentures are:
- Full dentures can replace the entire upper and lower arch. They are an ideal solution if you are missing all your teeth or need them all removed.
- Partial dentures are a good choice if you have some remaining healthy teeth. They can take the pressure off your remaining teeth as well as prevent them from shifting.
