Full Mouth Restoration And Rehabilitation

Posted on: 25 June 2018

If you have a lot of problems with your teeth, the dentist may have told you that you need full mouth construction. If this is the case, you may be able to go with veneers. If you still have teeth in your mouth, then this may be an option, and it would be a good one. Veneers can be a bit pricey, but they allow you to have your mouth reconstructed in a less-invasive way where you will have teeth that look, feel and act as natural teeth. Here is information on what you can expect if you have full mouth reconstruction done with veneers and what full mouth rehabilitation will be like. 

Your dental sessions – You will need at least two appointments when you decide to go with veneers and possibly more depending on things which may come up, such as a hold up at the lab which allows only some of your veneers to arrive at your dentist's office first, scheduling times, finances, etc. Your first appointment will be for the dentist to prepare your teeth and to make an imprint of your mouth that will become the model the lab will use to make the veneers, so they fit just right. Your teeth will be prepared by the dentist using dental tools to grind them down just enough to make room for the veneers to fit on them.

The process – When you are having your teeth prepared, you shouldn't feel pain or discomfort, unless the dentist must take down a tooth that's sensitive a bit. You will need to bite on the impression tray with the mold material in it. This can be uncomfortable since these trays are quite large. When you go in to have the veneers put on, the dentist will clean your teeth to remove plaque and bacteria, so it doesn't get trapped under the veneers. Then, the dentist will check to make sure all the veneers fit. They will put a bonding material on your teeth and then permanently push the veneers on your teeth. These steps will not hurt you at all.

The recovery – Another great thing about going with veneers is there really is no recovery. When you leave the dentist's office, you may find that your jaw is a bit sore from holding your mouth open wide for so long, but you shouldn't find yourself in much more discomfort than this. It may take you a little bit to learn how to chew comfortably in your new teeth, so be sure you chew slowly to avoid biting your tongue or cheeks. You want to begin caring for your teeth the proper way right away, brushing and flossing them as you normally would.
