Full Mouth Rehabilitation
The need for full mouth rehabilitation may result from teeth that:
- Were lost due to trauma or decay.
- Were fractured or injured.
- Have been severely eroded from bruxism (teeth grinding) or long-term acidic erosion (from acid reflux, food or beverage).
With full mouth rehabilitation, for site restoration, a bone grafting procedure is done to restore the jawbone to its previous shape. Restoring your facial bone structure is important for function and looks. Dental implants require the bone to be as close to its original measurements and position as possible. The jaw and facial bones support surrounding muscle and skin and without the support of that underlying bone, your face can look prematurely aged.
