FULL-MOUTH REHABILITATION

IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE SPEAKING OR CHEWING, OR YOU ARE EXPERIENCING JAW PAIN, YOU MAY NEED A FULL-MOUTH REHABILITATION

What are the Reasons for a Full Mouth Rehabilitation?

You may need a full mouth reconstruction in Salt Lake City if you have a long-term history of teeth grinding, stress, and misaligned bites. These can wear your teeth down over time to the point that it becomes a cosmetic and functional issue. Other conditions that may need a full mouth reconstruction are ectodermal dysplasia, amelogenesis imperfecta, or dentinogenesis imperfecta. 

Ectodermal dysplasia is a genetic condition that occurs as a fetus while developing. The ectoderm, or the outer layer of tissue, is affected and causes abnormalities in the skin, sweat glands, teeth, nails, and hair. 

Amelogenesis imperfecta typically results in smaller, discolored, grooved, and weaker teeth. Amelogenesis refers to the development of the outer layer of the tooth, the enamel. At the same time, dentinogenesis refers to a concern with the development of the middle layer, the dentin. 

Patients with dentinogenesis imperfecta typically have tooth discoloration, sometimes, blue-gray, yellow-brown, or translucent appearance, and generally are weaker.

 

What Concerns Do Patients Have Who Need a Full Mouth Restoration?

Patients that are good candidates for a full-mouth restoration in Salt Lake City can face a wide range of dental concerns. Some everyday speech issues are difficulty with saying “t,” “f,” and “s” sounds. Dr. Zurcher has extensive training in performing rehabilitations that are beautiful and functional. Patients’ teeth may also be weaker and break easier because the tooth’s enamel or dentin has not developed correctly. Some patients are also concerned about the cosmetic appearance because these conditions may cause tooth discoloration. 

 

Who are Good Candidates for Full Mouth Restorations?

You don’t have to have a genetic condition to be a good candidate for a full-mouth restoration. Some patients with multiple dental fillings or missing teeth may be a good candidate for a full-mouth restoration in Salt Lake City. The need for a full-mouth restoration may be caused by a severe accident or oral health habits and conditions. Patients who have poor oral health habits or are on many medications may be more likely to have dental concerns. Many medicines can cause mouth dryness, leading to dental decay and gum disease. 

 

How are Full Mouth Restorations Performed? 

Our dentists at Salt Lake Family Dental will tailor your dental treatment to the type of dental concerns you have. Many patients that benefit from full mouth restorations in Salt Lake City use dental implants in their treatment process. Dental implants can replace one or more missing teeth. A dental implant is supported by a titanium post with three primary attachments. 

We can also use a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture (supported by a dental implant) to restore your smile. If you miss many teeth in a row, your dentist may recommend a dental implant-supported bridge or denture. Dental implants improve your quality of life because you can wear and use them like natural teeth. 

 

At Salt Lake City Dental, we help you with your complete mouth restoration. Some patients need full mouth restorations due to dental genetic concerns while may benefit if they have had lifestyle concerns. We can help you with your repair, no matter the cause. We have several treatments such as dental implants, dental crowns, dental bridges, and more to restore your smile. Our full mouth restorations in Salt Lake City focus on improving your overall oral health look and feel.
