Full-mouth rehabilitation at Islay Hill

A healthy smile is what allows us to make a great first impression and put our best faces forward each day. What many people don’t realize, however, is that the quality of one’s smile has an effect on a lot more than just one’s outward appearance. The correlation between good oral health and overall health is more substantial than most people may be aware of.

If your oral health is affecting your ability to chew certain foods then you may be depleting your body of essential vitamins and nutrients, which can have negative effects on your overall health. There are many factors that can lead to broken, damaged and worn teeth, resulting in the inability for the teeth and jaws to function together properly and thus maintain a healthy diet. Full mouth rehabilitation is a procedure that allows Dr. Walters to redesign your bite and rebuild your teeth to their proper contours allowing you to chew comfortably again.

What can I expect during my full mouth rehabilitation treatment? 

Dr. Walters uses detailed photos and digital records to design your new smile. Most patients will start by wearing a custom-fitted retainer for two weeks, called a deprogrammer,  which allows your jaw muscles to relax during that time. A record of your bite is then made to base your new proposed jaw position on. Dr. Walters conservatively shapes your teeth at the next appointment, to allow for a temporary “trial smile” to be placed. This trial is the same size and shape as the proposed new smile, only made from a temporary acrylic material.

The material is worn and tested for a few weeks to ensure that the proposed new smile meets all of Dr. Walters standards with respect to function, speech, and overall aesthetics. Once approved, Dr. Walters will send final impressions of your teeth to our expert lab ceramist to make your new smile. The new smile is permanently delivered shortly thereafter. In most cases a full mouth rehabilitation is made up of a combination of crowns and veneers, using porcelain materials that are specifically chosen based on your unique needs.
