Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitation is a process that can completely restore and rebuild a severely damaged smile. Following a custom designed treatment plan that can combine a variety of restorative, cosmetic, and/or periodontal procedures, our dentist Jeff Blackburn, DDS, can treat traumatic injuries, decay, gum disease, missing teeth, and other conditions and reconstruct a full smile. Any number of causes can be at the root of complex and widespread dental issues, but no matter how severe your dental problems are, Dr. Blackburn can help guide you to the healthy, beautiful smile you desire. His advanced training and over 30 years of experience performing quality dentistry make Dr. Blackburn a reliable choice for transforming your smile.
The first step toward full mouth rehabilitation is a consultation, during which Dr. Blackburn can evaluate your needs, discuss your goals, and review a treatment plan. It is never too late to undergo the dental treatment you need, and if you are considering full mouth restoration, we encourage you to contact our practice to schedule a consultation.
Benefits of Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Restoring your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile can have a significant positive impact on your overall health, comfort, and confidence. Advantages of reconstructing your smile with full mouth rehabilitation can include:
- Elimination of harmful infection, bacteria, and other disease, which can affect not only your dental health, but the health of your body as well.
- Reduction in oral pain and discomfort.
- Improvement in form and function of your teeth and bite.
- Replacement of missing or irreparably damaged teeth.
- Reduction in jaw pain.
- Restoration of a more balanced, youthful facial structure.
- Dramatic improvement in the appearance of your teeth, gums, and overall smile.
In every case, Dr. Blackburn customizes treatment to meet the specific health, structural, and aesthetic needs of each patient with the goal of achieving optimal results.
The Full Mouth Rehabilitation Process
Full mouth rehabilitation begins with a thorough evaluation of your dental health, which includes an extensive oral examination and a full series of x-rays. During this process, Dr. Blackburn can identify areas of the mouth needing treatment. He then formulates a carefully phased treatment plan that prioritizes the most urgent issues to be resolved first. Every full mouth restoration is different and can include the following treatments and procedures:
- Periodontal care
- Preventative care
- Tooth extractions
- Bone grafts
- Dental implants
- CEREC® restorations
- Secure dentures
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
Regardless of which treatments and restorations you require to achieve your goals, you can expect Dr. Blackburn to deliver the highest level of care using advanced dental technology, innovative techniques, and quality materials. The length of your treatment will depend upon the extent of rehabilitation your mouth requires; however, Dr. Blackburn can provide you with an estimated treatment timeline during your consultation.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation Results
The results achieved after the completion of a full mouth rehabilitation treatment are, in many cases, life-changing. At the start of treatment, many patients are typically suffering from several serious dental complications that can be both physically and emotionally uncomfortable. When Dr. Blackburn finishes the necessary treatments and procedures, the result is often a dramatically transformed smile that can meet the highest standards of oral health and dental aesthetics. With regular checkups, cleanings, maintenance, and proper daily hygiene, the results of full mouth rehabilitation can last long into the future.
