Restoring your smile from start to finish can seem overwhelming, expensive, and leave you not knowing where to start – but it doesn’t have to be. With full mouth rehabilitation, your dentist can help you make a plan that guides you step-by-step to a stronger, healthier smile.
The first part of a full mouth rehabilitation plan involves a comprehensive exam. During this appointment it’s important to share your desires, goals, and needs about your oral health. Your dentist will then suggest certain types of treatments to help you rebuild your smile one visit at a time. Although in some cases you may only need one type of treatment, other people find that a combination of treatments works best.
For instance, one patient may elect to have all of their teeth removed and a full mouth denture made. Someone else may decide that periodontal therapy, selective extractions, and permanent dental implants are best for them. Your dentist will help you weigh the pros and cons to each treatment option and give you the information you need to select the choices that are best for you. Rebuilding your natural teeth is the biggest goal, when at all possible. Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants is the most reliable decision, but it isn’t always an option for some people.
Creating a game plan is important. Talk to your dentist about how quickly you would like your smile repaired and what your budgetary concerns may be. Your dentist will help you utilize all of your existing insurance coverage and may be able to offer financing options as well. There’s no excuse good enough for not having a healthy smile!
