Some procedures are more complex than a single tooth. Full mouth rehabilitation addresses a mouthful of challenges, and is expertly provided by our restorative dentist, Dr. Dean Lodding. If you can identify with the need for significant improvement in your oral health, full mouth rehabilitation may be what you’re looking for. It can restore function and a stunning appearance, especially with less-than-perfect oral health. Not every dentist has the same skills or ability to provide full mouth rehabilitation, which is why our cosmetic dentist in Elgin, Dean Lodding, DDS, has immersed himself in the latest continuing education and technology.
Many of the patients Dr. Lodding recommends for full mouth rehabilitation have multiple dental issues to be addressed or corrected. These can often be a combination of both cosmetic and functional concerns. Common dental problems that can benefit from full mouth rehabilitation include:
In your consultation with Dr. Lodding, your concerns and goals will be reviewed. He may recommend a Smile Design Makeover if your goals focus more on the aesthetic appearance of the teeth.
The cost of full mouth rehabilitation will range based on the procedures that Dr. Lodding recommends. We will provide you with a detailed estimate at the end of your consultation. Our office staff is also available to help determine financing options and payment methods that can work to make this treatment as financially convenient as possible. Depending on your insurance coverage, your policy may cover certain treatments. Typically, cosmetic treatments will not be covered by insurance.
