More often than not, dental treatment involves taking care of a handful of teeth at a time. A crown here, a filling or two there, and the mouth is restored.
However, in some cases, almost every tooth in the mouth is affected, broken down by wear, decay, or external trauma. In these cases, addressing only one tooth at a time is like putting a band-aid over a wound that really needs stitches. Instead, the full dentition needs to be rebuilt to restore proper function and a natural, healthy, beautiful smile.
The Consequences of a Worn-Down Mouth
Teeth are in our mouths for multiple reasons. The obvious one is to help us chew food. However, they are also crucial in maintaining the position of our jaw and providing vertical support and balance for our joints.
When teeth are worn down or lost, this equilibrium is thrown off. The bite collapses and the jaw loses its stability. This in turn can cause a number of neck, shoulder, and back issues, as well as migraines and sleep apnea. The teeth themselves also become more sensitive and have a worn, yellowish look to them.
Every patient is different, and each case requires a combination of various treatments to achieve the ideal result. However, the end goal is the same for everyone: rebuild the smile and restore a healthy, functional joint.
Benefits of Getting a Full Mouth Rehabilitation Treatment
Getting a full mouth rehabilitation treatment can benefit you in numerous ways. Here are some of them mentioned below.
- Curing Headaches and Migraines
Sustained headaches or migraines can significantly impact someone’s quality of life. In most cases, they may be caused by bruxism (clenching or grinding teeth) or the result of TMJ. A full mouth rehabilitation can treat this effectively and also alleviate headaches.
- Treating Gum Diseases
Gum diseases are common among most dental patients and can be addressed by full mouth rehabilitation to ensure a healthy foundation of reconstructed teeth. Full Mouth Rehabilitation associated with scaling, root planing, and bone grafts can help in building gums and underlying jawbones.
- Stronger Dental Structure
As we grow older, our teeth become weak and more likely to suffer from extensive damage. This may have a long-lasting impact on your dental structure and the integrity of teeth, leading to serious issues with your dental health.
