Benefits of full mouth rejuvenation

A full mouth makeover is not only done for cosmetic reasons, but it is also done to restore the proper function of all the damaged teeth. These treatments are often done to address dental issues like:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Broken, damaged or chipped teeth
  • Cavities
  • Alignment issues

Common treatments used during full mouth makeovers

1. Implants

Implants are dental prosthetics that are used to replace missing teeth. They replace the entire tooth and its roots. This makes implants the preferred option when it comes to dealing with missing teeth since it keeps the jawbone properly stimulated.

Implants are typically made from metals like titanium. Other nonmetals like zirconium are sometimes used as well. The device is surgically placed in the patient's jawbone, and it is given about 7 months to fuse with the surrounding bone tissue properly. A crown is then placed on the external-facing end of the implant.

2. Braces

Braces are sometimes used during full mouth makeover. There are used to treat orthodontic issues like misaligned teeth or bad bites. Traditional metal braces have been the norm for over a century, but there are less visible options available nowadays.

Ceramic and clear braces can be used to address a variety of dental issues. Unlike traditional braces, these devices blend in with the wearer's teeth.

Most orthodontic devices work using the same principle. The gradually push the wearer's teeth into the proper position by applying constant pressure on them. The severity of the alignment issues often dictates the length of time the patients have to wear braces.
