Full Mouth Rehabilitation
San Francisco Full Mouth Rehabilitation
For patients who have extensive decay or damage, full mouth rehabilitation may be necessary. As the name implies, this procedure may entail repairs to every tooth in your mouth. Dr. Itani performs the procedure in a hospital, and you will be under general anesthesia during the entire restoration. Depending on your needs, the full mouth rehabilitation may include fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, veneers, onlays, or a combination of these options. While full mouth Rehabilitation is a major dental procedure, Itani Dental makes it as easy and painless as possible—you go to sleep with painful, broken, and worn-down teeth, and you wake up with the smile you’ve always wanted.
Depending on the case, full mouth rehabilitation typically takes two to three weeks. It’s usually a three-step process:
First Visit: We will perform an examination and take x-rays, and then we’ll go over your options and costs. A recommended treatment plan and options are then developed that reflects your needs, desires, and financial abilities.
Second Visit: We assemble a team of specialists as necessary to complete all significant dental work in one visit. We will gather the team at a hospital, and a trained anesthesiologist will administer the sedative. The team—which may include periodontists, endodontists, and oral surgeons, depending on your particular needs—will work together to perform the preparatory reconstruction. We will eliminate damage and decay, and then fit you with a temporary appliance to satisfy cosmetic and functional needs until your final appliance is delivered.
Third Visit: The completed restorations are installed.
Full mouth Rehabilitation is a serious dental operation that often requires specialists to perform tricky procedures. Prior to your reconstruction, we will go over all the risks with you.
In just a few weeks, you’ll go from having painful, decaying teeth that you try to hide to having a healthy, beautiful, and comfortable smile that you’ll want to show to the whole world. Our full mouth rehabilitation patients often tell us that the procedure forever changed their lives for the better.
