Whats the procedure?

The full mouth rehabilitation procedure varies for each patient depending on individual dental health and the restorative treatments required. Generally, the treatment stages are as follows:

1. Full dental examination

Your dentist will thoroughly examine your dental health, and take X-rays, impressions and photographs to help determine the best treatment for you.

2. Cleaning

Before your treatment can begin, your teeth will be cleaned to eradicate harmful bacteria. Healthy teeth are cleaned first followed by the damaged tooth or teeth. If gum disease is present, it will be treated before your restorative treatment can begin.

3. Restorative treatments

  • Dental implants
    Small titanium screws are placed in the jawbone where they become a permanent part of the mouth. Dental crowns are then attached to the implants to restore one, several, or a full arch of missing teeth.
  • Dental crowns
    Injured or infected teeth are restored back to full form and function with dental crowns. Exceptionally durable, crowns are placed over the unhealthy teeth to prevent further infection.
  • Porcelain veneers
    Made of wafer-thin layers of porcelain, veneers are used to mask dental imperfections. They instantly transform chipped, crooked, and gappy teeth, resulting in a whiter, fuller smile.

How long does treatment take?

Treatment time varies for each patient depending on the specific treatments required. Severe cases need greater work and will extend the treatment time, while mild damage can be quickly rectified. In particular, dental implants require a longer treatment time involving a four to six month healing period. You can ask your dentist about the estimated timescale for you treatment.
