You may have heard of a smile makeover, which is where a patient in need of multiple cosmetic dental procedures picks and chooses the work they need to have a smile that looks the way they want it to look. Full-mouth rehabilitation is similar in a lot of ways, but focuses on the functionality of your teeth as opposed to the way they look. Rochester dentist, Dr. Janet Calcagno, will tell you more about full-mouth rehabilitation.
Why Full-Mouth Rehabilitation?
Consider yourself lucky if you were born with a set of fully functioning teeth, and you were taught ample oral hygiene habits. There are dozens of reasons as to why someone might have issues with their teeth. Genetics can play a big role. Tooth decay that isn’t halted, or dental injuries (fractures and chips) that have not been repaired, can lead to a downward spiral of further issues with your teeth. Imagine trying to eat and speak with teeth that are not complete, and are literally rotting away in your mouth. The focus becomes getting your teeth in good working order. Your smile might end up looking cosmetically more attractive, but the end goal is restoration.
Is Full-Mouth Rehabilitation for Me?
If you have pain in the jawbone, overlapping teeth, worn, cracked, or chipped teeth, or any general facial or mouth pain as a result of teeth that are not in the best shape, a consultation for full-mouth rehabilitation would be prudent. Feeling proud of your smile can improve your quality of life. Properly functioning teeth that don’t cause discomfort should be a given. Taking the next step is up to you, but you’re unlikely to have regrets when you opt for full-mouth rehabilitation to get your teeth back in good working order, and possibly looking and feeling better than they ever have.
