Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Has it been awhile since your last dental visit?
Some patients come in needing a completely new smile – and we can provide that at our office in Pembroke Pines. Whether you’re missing teeth or have severe gum disease or another condition, Dr. Darlene Hart will consider all of your symptoms while designing a personal treatment plan that works specifically for you. Discover how our full mouth rehabilitation can change your life for the better at Sweet Hart Dental.
Every Patient Has Different Needs
When patients require multiple treatments to recover the look and function of their smile, Dr. Hart will determine which procedures are optimal as well as the order they should be performed. Every patient that walks through the door has different needs, and this is especially true for our full mouth rehabilitation patients. Let us take all of your concerns into account as we correct your dental issues and restore a smile you’ll love.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Full Mouth Rehabilitation?
Full mouth reconstruction is a deeply involved dental procedure which combines various treatments to give you the smile you deserve – but it’s not appropriate for every patient. Peruse the conditions that are most likely to require full mouth rehabilitation:
Trauma has caused a patient’s teeth to become damaged or lost.
An injury has fractured some of a patient’s teeth.
Severe bruxism has caused permanent damage to the teeth.
The patient experiences TMJ pain, including pain in the neck and shoulders.
Misalignment of a patient’s bite is causing severe discomfort.
Dr. Hart’s Four Main Focuses in Full Mouth Rehabilitation
By focusing on these four critical aspects of oral health and quality of life, Dr. Hart can provide the best possible care for her patients.
Your dental condition will determine the type and amount of restorative work that needs to be done. Dr. Hart will take into account any cracks, root canal issues, tooth decay, and missing teeth while designing your individualized treatment plan.
It’s not enough that your smile is healthy – we want it to be as beautiful as it can possibly be as well. This means making the extra effort to ensure that the shape, color, size, and proportions of your teeth are perfectly aligned to maximize your appearance.
Periodontal Condition (The Health of Your Gums)
It takes more than strong teeth to make a complete, healthy smile. If your gums are infected, it could jeopardize any restorative procedures we do, so it’s imperative that we ensure your gums are in excellent condition before beginning other treatments. Depending on the severity of periodontal problems, treatments such as gum grafts and scaling and root planing may be used.
Temporomandibular Joints (TMJ)
The TMJ is the joint that connects the jaw to your head, and problems with the TMJ can be painful for your neck, shoulders, and other nearby areas. TMJ problems are often caused by a misaligned bite, a condition which typically requires orthodontic treatments. Dr. Hart will ensure that your bite is well-aligned and that no TMJ issues are present.
