Did you know that your teeth were created to last only about 40-50 years? It’s not as crazy as it sounds, because it wasn’t very long ago that the mortality rate was above 50 years. Today, the average mortality rate surpasses your tooth’s life span by decades!
As you age, you start having to deal with more – and more comprehensive – dental problems from root canals to tooth replacements and bite problems.
Prosthodontic reconstruction of most or all of the teeth. Replacement of missing teeth, or a jaw alignment problem. These can be solved with a combination of techniques such as crowns, and fixed bridges, removable partial dentures, full dentures and implant-supported dentures and sometimes orthodontic treatment (braces) in conjunction with these procedures.. Combining the science of Neuromuscular Dentistry with the art of Cosmetic Dentistry, luckily, a full mouth rehab allows each of these obstacles to be corrected to create a smile that is functional, comfortable and beautiful.
A dental practitioner will not promise to improve your dental health in one appointment. There are various procedures that are a part of a full mouth rehabilitation. This is how the procedure normally works:
First, your dentist will investigate your present jaw and dental health. X-rays and lab diagnostics will help determine where what needs to be treated, and how every tooth is currently set in your mouth.
This will most likely take one full appointment, and it may be a couple of days or a week before your doctor shares with you the best course of action for your full mouth restoration.
Depending on your dental issues, your dental practitioner may come up with a suitable treatment plan for you and help to re frame your bite. However, if they discover that your mouth can be restored through individual tooth restoration alone, your dental specialist will begin those procedures on your second visit.
All of the current Crowns, bridges and other dental work will be removed so the Dentist has a clean slate to treat your full smiles with new restorations. Either a full mouth scan will be taken or in some cases impressions will be made with the goal that every individual tooth can get the work that it needs. If required, you may be given temporary restorations while the scan / impressions will be used to make your permanent restorations.
Once your basic health of teeth has been restored, the new restorations will be put in, using specific dental procedures based on what is best for your mouth.
Full mouth rehabilitation is a comparatively quick way to fix your entire mouth and enjoy a healthy smile for many years to come. It’s important to consider these aspects, before you make your appointment:
Cost: A Full mouth rehabilitation involves a lot of individual restorations, and each of those restorations will add up. Though full mouth rehabilitation can be expensive, it would really increase the life span of your present natural dentition and you would enjoy eating with your natural teeth for really long time. Also if you have multiple teeth problems then you might eventually loose you natural teeth and probably pay the same amount of money or even more for artificial teeth.
The Costs also differ as per the requirements of the patient. We, at Creative Smiles, will work with you to help you understand the costs of various procedures and fit them with your budget. There are a lot of varieties of treatment options available with us, so that we can design a specific treatment plan to suit your needs as well as your budget.

Each case is unique and requires a comprehensive plan. Not all dentists can undertake a full mouth rehab, so make sure to do your homework and find the right dentist for your specific needs. A Full mouth rehabilitation may involve
If you have more than four decayed / bad teeth or multiple missing teeth, full mouth rehabilitation may seem like the best option. However, differing from person to person it may vary. Full mouth rehabilitation works best to conserve your natural dentition. Also lot of options available to get completely fixed teeth in case you have no natural teeth left in your mouth and you dont wish to go for removable dentures.
On the other hand, if only a few scattered teeth are affecting your bite, it may be easier to isolate those few teeth and get implants or bridges. To put it simply, a complete overhaul may not be necessary if most of your teeth are healthy and strong.

Dental braces or braces/cases are devices used in orthodontics ( a branch of dentistry that deals with diagnosis, prevention, and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws) that realign and straighten with an improvement in overall dental health. They’re usually used to treat underbites, overbites, open bites, deep, and crossbites. There are several types of dental braces like Traditional Metal Wired, Gold Plated Stainless Steel, Lingual, Titanium, Invisible(clear) Aligners.
Clear aligners or as they’re popularly known invisible aligners are transparent orthodontic devices that are used to adjust teeth.
The first offshoot of clear aligners appeared In 1945 as H.D. Kesling’s ‘tooth positioner’, made out of rubber it looked similar to a sports mouth guard. In the 1960s one-piece plastic splints were used to stabilize teeth, in the 80s Mr. Yoshii of Japan introduced elastic devices made from flexible silicone. In the 1990s, new aligner systems were introduced, ‘Invisalign’ was one of these released in the US in 1997. This was a revolutionary movement for dentistry around the world. For the first time, a computer-aided model for the desired results could be produced from a single impression of the teeth. These models were then used to manufacture a large series of aligners for a patient without the need for new impressions.
How it Works:
The dentist will first take a mold of the patient’s teeth, this mold is then used to create a digital tooth scan. The computer software will then suggest the alignment measurements and stages between the current and desired teeth positions. This leads to the creation of aligners for each stage. Each aligner can be worn up to 20 hours a day for 2 weeks. Over time the teeth will slowly move into the desired position at different stages in different time frames.
Instead of being worn on the front of your teeth, these are placed in the back of your teeth, so they’re not visible.
100% customizable to allow to follow the contour of your teeth.
The customization of the ibraces means that they require lesser adjustment than tradition braces and lesser visits to the dentist
It serves as a feel-good factor for people who have issues with the aesthetics of traditional braces.
Invisible aligners or Clear Aligners are a very welcome revolution in dentistry the world over, the future of orthodontics is going to be shaped by the further advancement of tools and techniques of invisible aligners.

“Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody’s heart.” –Anthony J. D’Angelo
Everybody wants to have a wide dazzling smile. But some beautiful smiles stay hidden because of the tooth being crooked or excessively gapped. These issues can be corrected by braces. Braces are wire-based devices which are used in orthodontics for misaligned teeth, to straighten and help position them according to a person’s bite. They are used for various purposes such as to correct crooked teeth, crowded teeth, the gap between teeth, bite problems, etc.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Some of these treatments include:
Metal Braces– Metal or traditional braces, according to one’s imagination are brackets and wires. But modern braces are less noticeable, quick and less painful than older ones. Therefore, it makes them more comfortable to use.
Clear Braces– They are worn just like the traditional metal braces and are of same size and shape. But they have clear brackets that blend with the color of the tooth, thus reducing its visibility.
Lingual Braces– Unlike traditional or clear braces, they are placed behind the teeth, making it great teeth straightening alternative without being visible.
Retainers– Mostly retainers are used in the last stage of the treatment when the braces are removed to hold teeth in position.
BRACES AND ADULTS
People of all age groups are benefitted from using braces. Braces can produce similar results for adults and kids for problems such as crowded /crooked teeth and misaligned teeth. But an adult has to wear them longer than a kid or teen. A younger person’s facial bones grow faster, making it easier to correct misaligned teeth faster.
Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional braces and use gradual force to control tooth movement without metal wires or brackets. Made up of sturdy material, they are designed to fit every individual’s mouth. A Clear aligner is worn for straight two to three weeks before changing it.
With advent of latest technology clear aligners can correct most of the malalignments of teeth. Few of these conditions include :-
Bite problems such as overbite, underbite etc.
Widely gapped teeth
Moreover, properly aligned teeth help to improve the teeth’s appearance, apart from solving speech, bite and chewing problems.
ADVANTAGES OF CLEAR ALIGNERS
Clear aligners are a great alternative for those who don’t prefer to wear traditional braces. It has many other advantages as well, such as:-
Clear aligners are removable, making it easier for one to eat, brush and floss.
They are more comfortable
They have a shorter treatment duration
They can be kept clean easily
They are less likely to irritate gums and cheeks
They are smooth and prevent the tooth from grinding
The result of its treatment is permanent when maintained with use of retainers.
How Much Time Do They take?
Duration to straighten the teeth is dependent upon how bite-off or crooked your teeth are. So on an average, the treatment takes place between 10 to 24 months, provided that one wears it for more than 20 hours every day.
More than just a joyous smile, Clear aligners helps to preserve your teeth in the long run. Stay informed and get the best treatment from renowned dentists at Creative Smiles.
