Full mouth rehabilitation to Oral Cancer
Full mouth rehabilitation means the process of rebuilding or restoring all of the teeth in your mouth. Several specialists can become involved in this procedure including:
" General or Cosmetic Dentists- doing crowns, implants, veneers or bridges
" Orthodontists- moving teeth into the proper position
" Periodontists- treating gum disease
The Full Mouth Reconstruction Examination
The first step in this process is to see your dentist and receive a comprehensive full mouth rehabilitation examination. During the exam, your dentist will closely review the state of your teeth, gums, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and esthetics.
Teeth- Your dentist will examine any veneers, crowns, teeth wear, implants, and root canals and assess your teeth strength
Implants require two surgeries to permanently replace individual teeth. In the first surgery, the dentist makes gum incisions and drills titanium rods into your jawbone where you are missing teeth. Any openings are sealed with stitches, and often a temporary bridge or denture is placed over the gaps. After several months, your bone will fuse with the metal rods, and then your dentist can attach prosthetic teeth. The implant process typically costs anywhere from $2,000-$4,000 per tooth without a discount plan.
Bridges replace missing teeth by attaching crowns to the teeth on either side of the gap, connected by a false tooth in the center. Bridges can be made from ceramic, metal or plastic.
Crowns attach to damaged teeth to restore their shape and protect them from further harm. Parts of your original tooth may be removed to better accommodate the crown. The most common varieties are made of ceramic, metal or a mixture of the two. Some people find that they get a better discount with the inexpensive metal version. Crowns often cost $600-$1,000 each.
oral cancer ! is one of the most curable diseases when it is caught early, but it is difficult to diagnose in the early stages. By the time it is visible to your dentist or health professional, it is usually more advanced, often at Stage 3. Catching it earlier can limit the disfigurement due to surgeries and increase the survival rate to 95%!
ViziLite Plus helps dentists detect cancer cells at an early stage. It is easy, painless, and 99% effective. The technology is similar to what is used for mammograms, Pap smears and PSA. With ViziLite Plus, you simply rinse with a special solution and then the Hygienist or Dentist examines the oral tissue with the ViziLite luminescent light. If there are any areas of concern, they can be checked further with a special stain that adheres to abnormal cells. Oral cancer exams are recommended yearly, and may be repeated more often for people at higher risk of developing this dangerous disease.
