Full Mouth Rehab? What is that?
Drs. Pinedo and Cheng love an opportunity to really unleash their skills and completely rebuild a mouth. Some patients suffer with severe problems affecting nearly all of their teeth and the thought of something as drastic as wearing loose dentures is not appealing to them.
Developed as an alternative to dentures, the Full Mouth Rehab, is available to patients who have missing or broken down teeth. The patient must still have good bone around the remaining teeth and enough tooth structure to work with. The Pinedo team is serious when they say that they always prefer to save as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.
In Full Mouth Rehab cases, every tooth in the mouth might need to be restored with a crown or implant crown. In some severe cases the bite may have to be rebuilt and opened up because it has collapsed. Entire sections of the mouth are then restored separately until eventually the whole mouth is completely and beautifully rebuilt.
This is a lot of work over multiple visits and requires a highly motivated patient, but the payoff is a return to a normal lifestyle. No more difficulty eating or awkwardly hiding your teeth. You’ll be able to smile proudly again, just like you used to.
