Who is a Candidate?
Candidates for full mouth rehabilitation include those who have problems with all or many of their teeth. Good candidates are also those individuals who are prepared for what can be a lengthy process, sometimes requiring multiple procedures over several months or even years.
Some of the problems that full mouth rehabilitation addresses include:
- Missing teeth
- Cracked, chipped, decayed or otherwise damaged teeth
- Jaw or TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems
- Severely worn teeth due to grinding or a misaligned bite
- Extensive erosion of tooth enamel
- Issues resulting from traumatic injury
If you think you may be a good candidate for full mouth rehabilitation, the first step is to contact our Meridian practice to schedule a consultation with Dr Kooyman.
Your Personalized Consultation
Don’t be embarrassed about the condition of your smile. With more than 12 years of experience as a dentist, there is little that Dr. Kooyman hasn’t seen. During your personalized full mouth rehabilitation consultation, he will perform a comprehensive examination of your mouth and speak with you about your goals. He will also explain what is involved in the process, making sure that you understand how much time it can take and how many procedures are involved to achieve the optimal outcome.
After the initial consultation and examination, Dr. Kooyman will prepare several treatment plans for you to choose from.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation Procedures
Full mouth rehabilitation may include any of the general, cosmetic, or restorative dentistry procedures offered at Signature Dental. Some of the most common treatment options included in full mouth rehabilitation include:
- Dental implants to replace missing teeth.
- Porcelain veneers and/or crowns to conceal flaws and add strength to teeth.
- Teeth cleaning and periodontal treatment to restore dental health.
- Invisalign® orthodontics to correct gaps and misalignments.
- Treatment for TMJ disorder to relieve discomfort and prevent tooth damage that can be caused by clenching and grinding.
Full mouth rehabilitation patients can also take advantage of the sedation dentistry options available at Signature Dental, including oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide. Both sedation options will allow you to remain conscious during your procedures while helping you remain relaxed and comfortable.
Recovery from Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Recovery time will depend on your personalized treatment plan. Full mouth rehabilitation is often an ongoing process, requiring several procedures over the course of months or years to achieve optimal results. Although procedures can sometimes be combined, as they are with a smile makeover, doing so can have less than ideal results with full mouth rehabilitation. Since the procedures are often very complex and may involve the entire mouth, it is important to allow adequate healing time before proceeding to the next procedure. You may be anxious to have your smile restored as quickly as possible; however, Dr. Kooyman prefers to take extra time to make sure each procedure is done right and produces the desired results before moving on to the next step.
