What is Oral rehabilitation?
The term rehabilitation refers to returning something to its original state and rebuilding or replacing it. Post-operative cancer care may require oral rehabilitation as an essential procedure. However, the need for oral rehabilitation may arise due to common oral and dental dysfunctionalities. The whole mouth rehabilitation technique, as the name implies, involves restoring and/or replacing all of the teeth in the patient’s mouth. It mixes aesthetics with conservative and cosmetic dentistry to improve the mouth’s health, function, and attractiveness.
The goals of full-mouth rehabilitation:
The primary goal of full-mouth rehabilitation treatment is to restore and maintain oral tissue health. Because of lifestyle changes and our love for cola and sweet meals, the dysfunction and under-relationship of the oral mechanism have worsened. Occlusal rehabilitation can assist with:
- Maintaining the periodontal tissue/gums.
- Correcting the position and function of the temporomandibular joint.
- Replacement of missing teeth or teeth, and worn teeth.
- Replacement or refill of the old restorations, if required.
- Obtaining an esthetically sound smile.
- Restore impaired occlusion.
- Preserving longevity of remaining teeth.
- Removing pain and discomfort of hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity.

The treatment begins with a simple visit to your local top dentist. The prosthodontist will be on the lookout for
Your medical background
- Dental background.

The treatment plan will be determined by the complexity of your condition. Prior to beginning treatment, a treatment plan must be formed; counseling and communication are critical components of successful dental therapy. It is broken down into three stages:
- The pre-prosthetic and diagnostic phases.
- The prosthetic stage
Full mouth rehabilitation techniques comprise the following therapy methods:
Scaling and polishing: The initial phase involves cleaning and polishing, as well as basic teeth whitening for discolored teeth and good dental care. This will clean your teeth of tartar, dirt, and plaque.
Dental implant: This treatment option is advised when one or more teeth are missing. Implants are surgically inserted in the jawbone to replace the tooth’s root. This technique is performed using local anesthesia. Following the placement of the root, the abutment, crown, and prosthesis are used to replicate the natural tooth. It takes three to four months for the implant to recover because the bone in the jaw grows and fuses with the implant. The entire dental implant procedure necessitates three to four visits to the dentist.
Crown: For cracked, worn-out, or decaying teeth, this procedure is essential. These crowns or caps are composed of various materials such as porcelain, ceramic, zirconium, metal, composite resin, or a mix of these. The following factors influence material selection:
- The location of the teeth, for example, if your front teeth need to be replaced, you may want to choose a ceramic or composite resin crown that matches the natural tooth color.
- The state of your gum tissues, i.e., are your gums robust enough? Is there any inflammation or other disease?
- The condition of the remaining natural tooth/teeth, i.e. if it is robust enough to support the crown.
- The procedure for creating and placing crowns may need numerous visits. Good dental hygiene is vital for crown maintenance.
Dental Bridges: Bridges are utilized to bridge the space between two or more missing teeth. Bridges can be made of a variety of materials, including gold, silver, porcelain, and porcelain fuse metals. It might be an implant-supported bridge or a tooth-supported bridge. The decision will be influenced by the state of your existing teeth and gums.
Dentures: Dentures are artificially made gum and teeth that fit comfortably in the mouth and replace lost natural teeth. It might be a complete or partial denture. Porcelain and acrylic resin are used to make dentures. Porcelain ones appear natural and blend in with the rest of the teeth.
Removable dentures: A dentist will help you pick the best alternative for removable dentures, and you will receive a custom-made denture that will fit your mouth correctly. They are simple to remove and clean, and by removing them while sleeping, you relieve pressure on your gums.
Fixed dentures: They are dentures that are permanently fastened into the jawbone and within the gums. It looks more like genuine teeth. Aids in the prevention of bone loss.
Implant-supported dentures: Implant-supported dentures are fixed dentures that are permanently placed in the live bone tissues of the gum. There is no risk of an accidental slide, and it also inhibits bone loss.
Implant-supported dentures are available in two styles: fixed and semi-fixed.
Overdentures: These are either partially or entirely removable dentures. These are especially beneficial for the elderly or those who have lost some of their teeth. It is a simple and inexpensive method of whole-mouth rehabilitation.
Full mouth rehabilitation also includes aesthetic improvements to the form and size of the teeth and gums. Our comprehensive dental care approach includes a variety of cosmetic dentistry plans to ensure that your smile complements the rest of your face.
