Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth reconstruction is often used to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.
This is reconstructing mouths that have been worn down through years of clenching, grinding, and other processes. This wear and tear is addressed and the mouth is rebuilt.
Benefits of full mouth rehabilitation
- Restore impaired teeth function
- Maintain healthy gingival conditions
- Eliminate pain and discomfort of teeth and surrounding structures.
- Gap closures
- Tooth build ups
- Metal free crowns and bridges
- Tooth jewellery
- Teeth Whitening
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of pharmacological agents to calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental appointment. Most dental procedures are carried out under local anesthesia but for people who are extremely nervous about visiting the dentist, sedation or sleep dentistry may be recommended. Most of the times children can become anxious when they see the dentist. As a result, they may not be able to relax or sit still long enough to receive treatment.

The laser light application as an adjunct to soft-tissue management in dentistry has seen an improvement in recent years.
A laser is a photo-thermal device that produces a monochromatic, coherent, and collimated light with a specific wavelength. It does not have the specific lock-and-key chemical target. It acts directly on cellular structures, destroying cell walls, altering DNA, modifying metabolic processes, and ungluing the polysaccharide structure of the biofilm.2 Some have reported reduction of subgingival bacterial flora in vitro. 3 Others have examined the in vivo bactericidal effect of certain lasers, which could significantly reduce the levels of some subgingival periodontal pathogens.4,5 In contrast, still other reports have questioned the benefit of subgingival laser therapy compared to that of conventional scaling and root planing.
