What is full mouth rehabilitation? 

Dental traumas and mix and match dentistry happen to many patients, but the effects don’t have to be permanent. Dr. Vartanian regularly performs full mouth restorations, helping patients achieve a dental rebirth. Our full mouth rehabilitation in Newport Beach consists of various specialties, and occurs over months or even a year in some cases.  Dr. Vartanian takes his time to meticulously build the patient's ideal smile. A full mouth reconstruction offers patients a solution for those who have had a variety of dental traumas — from those who grind their teeth (bruxism) to those who have had extensive dental disease looking for a fresh start. 

Because no two full mouth restorations are alike, this procedure is completely customized to meet your specific needs and can rely on a wide variety of sub-specialty procedures.

The goal of a full mouth restoration is to improve the health and function of your mouth, teeth, and gums. Because of this, the procedures required vary for each individual. Typically, dental implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, and fillings are part of the process.

Consultation process 

Dr. Vartanian believes that the best patient experience occurs when the patient is fully informed and knowledgeable about their dental situation. During the consultation process, everything is explained in simple terms with the help of diagrams, photos, and models. Dr. Vartanian devotes as much time as needed to answer all the patient questions and ensure that each patient can confidently make decisions about their care.

What are some issues a full mouth rehabilitation can address?

Tooth grinding & bite issues

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a very common problem that can erode and wear teeth, as well as cause headaches and chronic facial pain. Teeth grinding can also lead to TMJ, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction, which can result in discomfort while eating and cause the jaw to make clicking sounds. Splint therapy and BOTOX can provide profound relief. Dr. Vartanian is one of only a handful of dentists who successfully uses BOTOX to remedy this problem.

Dental & gum disease

Gums recede as people age, but aggressive brushing and poor dental hygiene can also cause gum recession. Exposed tooth roots can be painful and sensitive. They can also be unsightly, and increase the chances of tooth loss. Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation is a simple procedure that repositions gums to a healthy level. Cavities and tooth decay can be remedied with fillings, inlays, and onlays, depending on severity.

Dental trauma 

Chipped, worn, or broken teeth are unattractive and can be painful if nerves are exposed. Dr. Vartanian may suggest the use of either dental implants, crowns, bridges, Bio-Clear bonding, or porcelain veneers to restore healthy function and give you back your  beautiful smile.

What is the process of full mouth rehabilitation like?

No two dental restorations are alike, and our full mouth rehabilitation in Newport Beach is completely customized. A full dental restoration improves the health and look of gums and teeth through treatments like dental implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, fillings, and more. During your extensive consultation, Dr. Vartanian will carefully listen to your needs, examine your mouth, and determine which procedures are necessary to help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.

How long does a full mouth restoration take?

The timeline to complete a full mouth rehabilitation varies from patient to patient, and it generally takes longer if extensive treatment is needed. Most patients will visit Dr. Vartanian multiple times over the course of several months, each time getting closer and closer to achieving their perfect smile. 

While waiting for permanent teeth, temporaries will be placed. Temporaries are used as an opportunity for the patient and Dr. Vartanian to evaluate if the size, shape and contour of the proposed teeth are suitable. If needed, temporaries are adjusted and reshaped to meet the ideal requirements of fit, function, and esthetics.

What results can you expect?

At the end of the dental rehabilitation process, your teeth will be free of cosmetic imperfections like chipped, worn, or broken teeth. Cavities and tooth decay will be remedied. Any issues you have with a misaligned bite or TMJ will be resolved. Your smile will look great, and you can look forward to comfort, ideal dental function, and beautiful teeth for the rest of your life.

Who is eligible for a full mouth restoration?

Because a full mouth restoration is quite involved, it’s important that the patient be in good overall health. Being healthy will make healing and recovery easier, and will also ensure the best results possible. Commitment to improving one’s dental hygiene is also a necessity.
