Oral rehabilitation procedure when performed by an expertee team, patients get the best possible outcome in terms of comfort, function and appearance.
Our dentist will first treat the issues requiring immediate attention (pain, infection, broken teeth, etc).
1. After that he will perform comprehensive examination and work-up (consult with specialists as required).
2. Then the diagnostic wax-up (we bill patient the cost of the wax-up) will be fabricated.
3. The case along with the wax-up pattern is presented to the patient.Once the patient approves the treatment plan & wax-up .then the treatment begins
4. Teeth with a poor prognosis are then extracted
5. Prepare teeth as treatment planned and fabricate temporary crowns using templates made from wax-up (alternative is to have laboratory fabricate provisionals).
6. Periodontal treatment/surgery can then be carried out (while the patient is in provisionals that can be removed for access).
7. Following healing from any periodontal treatment, reassess the teeth and supporting structures and modify treatment plan if necessary. 8. Final tooth preparations and impressions are then taken. Second set of temporary crowns are fabricated if required
9. Carefully evaluate temporary crowns for esthetics, function, comfort, and stability. Make sure joints and supporting structures are also stable and comfortable. Work the case out on temporary crowns!
10. Photographs and model of the temporary crowns are sent to the laboratory to use as a guide in fabrication of final crowns.
11. Try-in appointments are then scheduled depending on the specific nature of the case. Final crowns are then placed once it is approved by both patient and dentist.
While there are many different schools of thought on how to sequence a full-mouth reconstruction, we like to first determine where the lower incisal edges should be. The incisal edge position of the lower anterior teeth helps determine the lingual contours of the upper anterior teeth. We then like to then set up an “ideal” lower incisal and occlusal plane and match the upper to this. It is extremely important to have properly positioned and contoured lower incisal edges and a correct incisal and occlusal plane established. Almost all ours full-mouth cases are built in centric relation.Our prosthodontists are specially trained for this!!
Full mouth rehabilitation seeks to rebuild every tooth in the mouth and requires highly educated and qualified dentists. Although the process can be extensive, the results are amazing.
Comprehensive oral rehabilitation is the elimination of dental disease and the reconstruction of damaged teeth. Treatment includes a complete examination, full mouth x-rays, cleaning, fluoride application, amalgam and composite restorations (fillings), limited endodontics, periodontal scaling and root planning, minor periodontal surgery, extractions and many other services.HOW MANY VISITS ARE NEEDED TO COMPLETE TREATMENT?
Each patient is scheduled for at least two appointments. The first visit is a consultation to review health history, determine the need for general anesthesia and to order the appropriate pre-operative tests. The second visit is for comprehensive oral rehabilitation. Additional visits may be needed if the patient requires a significant amount of dentistry.
