Are you a candidate for FMR?
Here are some signs that might indicate that you might need Full mouth Rehabilitation:
1. You have teeth that are worn down.
Everyone’s teeth wear down with age. Your teeth are strong, but they are not indestructible. Years of daily chewing will eventually take a toll. But it is not normal to have teeth that are excessively worn or painful. Several factors can cause premature wearing of your teeth, including bruxism (or teeth grinding), eating or crunching hard foods; and, dental pathologies.
2. You have certain types of chronic pain
Do you notice frequent jaw soreness or fatigue in your jaw muscles? If so, you may be experiencing temporomandibular disorder (TMD) or jaw joints (TMJs). Your TMJs can become inflamed, irritated, or even arthritic from many causes, such as teeth grinding or congenital problems. TMD is more than just painful. This condition can negatively affect your bite alignment, as well as your ability to freely move your jaw.
3.You are missing teeth.
Many end up missing one or more of their natural teeth. Whether due to injury or to disease, you do not have to live with absent teeth. Modern dental treatments give you several options for tooth replacement.
4.You have experienced dental trauma.
Life is unpredictable, and an accident, sports injury, or other traumatic events can leave you with damage to your teeth. Whether your tooth has been knocked out, chipped, or pushed out of proper alignment, full-mouth rehabilitation can help.
5.You have severe gum disease.
Many patients are unaware that they are suffering from the condition. Advanced gum disease contributes to tooth loss and oral infections. If you experience sore, bleeding, or swollen gums or abscesses in your mouth, you likely have some degree of gum disease. If so, then your full-mouth rehabilitation will first need to include periodontal treatment to control the disease and to ensure the health of your teeth and gums.
