SERVICES PROVIDED FOR REHABILITATION
Damaged, worn, missing, or misaligned teeth are more than just unattractive; they can cause pain, difficulty chewing, digestive upset, TMJ issues, headaches, and distorted facial contours. Full mouth rehabilitation involves restoring all (or nearly all) of the teeth in both the upper and lower arches. Typically, the process will involve a combination of two or more of the following treatments:
- Invisalign can correct issues such as crossbite, overbite, underbite, open bite, gapped teeth, crowded teeth, and turned teeth. This treatment involves the use of clear aligner trays to move teeth without the need for traditional metal brackets and wires.
- Dental Implants finished with a crown can replace missing teeth with the same stability, function, and beauty as that of a natural tooth. These restorations, made of titanium, may also be used along with dental bridges or full dentures to replace more than one tooth as needed and offer a permanent solution.
- Porcelain veneers can be used to alter the appearance of the size, shape, or color of the teeth. These ceramic restorations act as facings that are bonded onto the teeth near the front of the mouth to achieve results.
- Composite bonding is a tooth colored resin that can be used to fill gaps between teeth, reshape a tooth, cover flaws in the enamel, or as a virtually invisible filling. This restoration is often chosen as an alternative to porcelain veneers as it is more affordable and faster.
- Dental crowns protect and strengthen teeth weakened by decay or trauma. These restorations are often referred to as “caps” as they cover the entire visible portion of the tooth and are bonded into place. Dental crowns can last many years with proper care.
- Teeth whitening can remove years of stains and discoloration. Our practice offers high quality, professional bleaching solutions including our in-office power whitening with laser treatment and our take-home whitening kits and trays. Patients can choose the whitening treatment they desire based on the timeframe they want to see their results.
- Periodontal treatment can restore the health of your mouth and appearance of the gums. This is incredibly important as periodontal disease can affect one’s systemic health due to the oral systemic connection. Also known as gum disease, this condition results as an infection due to poor oral health habits and is completely preventable with the help of dental guidance and at-home dental care.
HOW DO I PROTECT MY SMILE AFTER IT HAS BEEN REHABILITATED?
Rehabilitation of the smile is a wonderful way to make the smile function its best and look great. It is also a wonderful investment that patients will want to protect. Patients can protect their smile after it has been transformed by taking several steps. Patients should take great care of their teeth at home with regular brushing and flossing, and maintain their routine appointments with their dentist, at least twice a year, for an evaluation and cleaning. Additionally, patients with conditions such as bruxism (clenching and grinding) may benefit from wearing a mouth guard at night to keep from breaking their natural teeth and restorations.
THE FIRST STEP
The team at Smiles4OC will conduct a comprehensive examination, review your unique situation, and devise a treatment plan that can address your concerns and meet your goals. The doctors have the training, technology, skills, and wisdom to restore your oral health while creating a beautiful, comfortable smile. Once our team of professionals have developed a treatment plan, patients have the option to have their rehabilitation and repair done all in one appointment or have them spaced out over time. This is a personal decision that can only be made by patients based on what they would like to achieve and in what time frame. We respect the decision of patients and work with individuals to make their dream smile a reality!
