4 Things You Need to Do Before You Have a Full Mouth Restoration

A full mouth restoration (FMR) is what your mouth needs when it has lost its natural form or function because of disease or injury. Without this level of rehabilitation, your mouth would never be the same.

An FMR is a project that’s made up of several different procedures. It can seem a bit overwhelming to plan. How do you know which treatment you need and where to get started?

  1. Design a Plan with Your Dentist

The first step is having your smile assessed. A dental expert will help you determine which procedures are necessary to completing your smile. Together, you’ll prioritize the list of treatment and the dentist will begin assembling the team of professionals.

  1. Talk with Your Doctor

An FMR could require extensive surgical treatment. From implants to grafting to facial reconstruction, you’re going to need the help of your general physician. Your doctor will ensure that your medications list is up-to-date and that you are cleared for surgical procedures.

  1. Boost Your Immune System

Your body won’t recover well when it’s low on fuel. Work to lower stress, eat well, and get lots of sleep before you have invasive treatment done. A healthy body promotes healing.

  1. Make Financial Preparations

Depending on the nature and extent of treatment you need, it could be the biggest investment you make at a single time. Don’t let surprise expenses make you give up partway through treatment! Be prepared to finish what you start. Plan ahead by communicating with your insurance company. Get treatment estimates and ask about payment plans, financing, and loans.

Contact your local dentist for more details on planning an FMR.
