What is oral rehabilitation?

Oral rehabilitation is an area of dentistry that focuses on restoring function, esthetics and oral health to patients who have suffered tooth loss, dental decay or other complex oral conditions.

How is oral rehabilitation performed?

The first step is a thorough evaluation of the patient’s oral health, which may include clinical examinations, x-rays and advanced diagnostic studies. We then proceed to prepare the patient’s oral cavity.

Based on the initial evaluation, a customized treatment plan is developed that addresses the patient's specific needs. This may include restoration of damaged teeth, replacement of missing teeth, treatment of periodontal disease, among others.

If necessary, preliminary procedures such as extraction of damaged teeth, root canal treatment, periodontal surgery, etc. are performed.

If it is necessary to replace missing teeth, dental implants can be placed as a base for future prosthetic restorations.

In the case of dental restorations such as crowns or bridges, existing teeth are prepared and impressions are taken to fabricate custom-made prostheses.

Dental prostheses, such as crowns, bridges, partial or complete dentures, are fabricated in a dental laboratory using the appropriate materials and techniques to ensure a precise fit and natural appearance.

Once fabricated, dentures are placed in the patient's mouth and fine adjustments are made to ensure a comfortable fit and proper function, we proceed to the final adjustments.

What does oral rehabilitation involve?

This comprehensive process combines various dental specialties, such as restorative dentistry, periodontics, endodontics and implant dentistry, to develop a customized treatment plan. Oral rehabilitation may include dentures, implants, bone grafting, gum treatment and other procedures aimed at restoring chewing function, improving esthetics and restoring the patient’s oral health.

Prostheses used in oral rehabilitation

Advances in science and technology have transformed the field of dentistry, making possible the use of regenerative techniques and esthetic safe materials. Today, dental prostheses are individually designed for each patient, ensuring a natural appearance and optimal function.

These prostheses can take various forms, such as single crowns, fixed or removable, partial or total prostheses, and can even be placed on implants. The fundamental purpose is to restore both function and esthetics to the mouth, contributing significantly to the patient’s oral and overall health. This individually tailored approach guarantees excellent results and patient satisfaction.

Frequently asked questions about oral rehabilitation

To determine if you need oral rehabilitation requires evaluating several aspects of your oral health, among the signs that may indicate the need for this type of treatment include:

  • Tooth loss.
  • Chronic pain or discomfort in the mouth.
  • Difficulty biting or chewing food.
  • Bruxism or other disorders that may require oral rehabilitation.
  • Unsatisfactory dental esthetics.
  • Chronic oral health problems.

The duration of an oral rehabilitation treatment varies depending on the specific needs of each patient. Some treatments can be completed in a few weeks, while other more complex treatments may require more time to achieve optimal results. Factors such as the type and extent of treatment, the patient's previous oral health and ability to recover may influence the time required to complete the process.

The degree of discomfort during an oral rehabilitation process varies depending on the type of treatment and the individual patient's sensitivity. However, advances in modern anesthetic techniques and medications have significantly improved the patient experience, minimizing the pain and discomfort associated with dental procedures. MDE Care allied professionals are trained to provide a comfortable and soothing environment throughout the oral rehabilitation process.

The cost of oral rehabilitation is determined by taking into account several factors, such as the complexity of the treatment, the materials used and the duration of the process. Each patient has specific needs, which means that the cost can vary considerably from case to case. It is important to have an initial evaluation to discuss your treatment goals and receive a detailed estimate that takes into account all relevant aspects of your oral rehabilitation.

During and after oral rehabilitation, some temporary dietary restrictions may be recommended to promote optimal recovery and protect any recent dental restorations. For example, it may be advised to avoid hard, sticky or crunchy foods that may damage dentures or interfere with gum healing. In addition, it is important to maintain a balanced diet and avoid excessive consumption of sugars and acids that may increase the risk of tooth decay or other complications.

The duration of oral rehabilitation results can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of treatment, the patient's previous oral health and oral care habits. To maintain long-term results, it is important to follow good oral hygiene, brush and floss regularly, avoid harmful habits such as smoking or biting on hard objects, and attend regular dental exams to detect and treat any problems in a timely manner.

Orthodontic Testimonials in MDE Care

My daughter has received excellent care from Dr. Juan Nicolas. It was very important to have a pediatric dentist from the early years to reduce the natural fears that children have to dentistry and to generate in my daughter a confidence in her doctor. Also that as parents we can be informed every step of the way
Juan David Mejía
“Our deepest thanks to Dr. Nicolás, who returned (literally) the smile to our daughter Violeta. In summary: our daughter had teeth (especially the upper ones) with cavities, from 4 years old they began to depigment and gradually turned black until they almost seemed toothless. We went to many places but none of them gave us a solution, they just said that it was necessary to operate. As a last option, friends whom we hold in high regard recommended Dr. Nicolás, and we decided to start treatment with him. He was always honest with us. Treatment and commitment were needed, but thanks to this, today my daughter, who is now 7 years old, can smile without shame, feels good, and is with her teeth very healthy. We truly thank the doctor and recommend him 1000% 🥰”
