Considerations for Full Mouth Rehabilitation
- Teeth – All of your teeth will be inspected to look for signs of decay, wear and damage. We will also consider the aesthetics of your teeth. Are they too long/short? Discolored? There are many procedures we can perform to improve the health and beauty of teeth including porcelain veneers, dental crowns, dental fillings, dental bridges and dental implants.
- Gums – The health of your gums is very important to the health of teeth and of the mouth overall. We will look for signs of gum disease and perform a through dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from around the gums.
- TMJ and Occlusion (bite) – A unbalanced bite can cause teeth to wear, lead to headaches and more. We will examine how the teeth come together to determine if any changes should be made. Using Invisalign, we can reposition the teeth so that they are straighter. Mouth guards or splints may also be used as TMJ therapy to prevent teeth grinding.
