Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full Mouth Rehabilitation is the recreation of every tooth in the mouth. This can include broken, chipped and excessively worn teeth.
How it works:
This procedure is usually completed in at least two to three appointments. At the first session, our prosthodontist will remove existing tooth decay and dental restoration. We then take an impression of your mouth for our in-house dental ceramists to create a customised set of teeth for you. During this appointment, you will also be fitted with a temporary set of teeth. On your second visit to T32 Dental Centre, our dental surgeon will remove the temporary teeth and replace them with a new set of permanent teeth. Due to the complexity of the case, sometimes more appointments are needed to complete the full mouth rehabilitation.
Practising good dental habits such as brushing twice and regular flossing is important, as are regular visits to the dentists and not chewing on hard objects such as ice. Our dental hygienist regularly performs six monthly cleaning and check-up for our patients.
The T32 Advantage:
T32 Dental Centre's prosthodontists work hand-in-hand with our in-house dental ceramists who will craft each set of teeth for every patient at T32's on-site dental laboratory using only the highest quality materials. This ensures excellent fit, more natural looking teeth and greater satisfaction levels among our patients.
In addition, our clinic’s on-site advanced facilities and technology gives us the edge in accurate diagnosis and design of customised solutions for every patient in the fastest possible time. Our top-of-the-range equipment include the Picasso Master for full CT scan capabilities and the Nobel Biocare Procera® Forte scanner, which uses a special computer-aided design system to create customised solutions for each patient.
Frequently Asked Questions on Full Mouth Rehabilitation
- Why is full mouth rehabilitation necessary?
Missing, broken and cracked teeth or teeth that are uneven and excessively worn down cannot function properly, which can make it difficult to speak clearly and chew food each time you eat. What's more, a set of teeth in extremely poor condition often causes pain and discomfort in muscles and joints around the jaw, back ache and other problems. By restoring your teeth to a good working condition, you can enjoy life without the burden of daily aches and pains. It also boosts self-confidence and self-esteem.
- How do I know if I need full mouth rehabilitation?
You are likely to need this procedure if you have teeth that are in very poor condition or that are excessively worn down, resulting in teeth that appear to be shorter in length than normal. Our specialist prosthodontic surgeon will be able to assess your case and advise on treatment.
- What is a prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are trained to manage the most complex dental restoration. They have the special skills needed to restore smiles to the best they can be. Prosthodontists can improve the appearance of teeth through the utilisation of ceramic crowns, porcelain veneers, bonding technology, or bleaching teeth to brighten a smile. They are able to provide comprehensive treatment options to restore missing teeth and restore function using conventional fixed prosthodontics or advanced implant dentistry.
- What about hygiene standards at T32 Dental Centre?
We understand the concern for personal safety. T32 Dental Centre uses autoclave sterilisation and disposable/non-contamination techniques to ensure the highest hygiene standards are met.
- Does this procedure hurt?
Local anaesthesia is used to numb the gum before we start work on the area. This should minimise painful sensations.
- How much does this procedure cost?
At T32 our approach is to customise treatments for each individual person. We believe that, by doing this, we are able to ensure maximum value for patients as they are charged only for the treatments they need and not for general dental packages, that may include treatments or services not needed. So the cost will very much depend on each specific patient's programme.
