Dental treatments help with dental problems as they happen. But sometimes, tooth breakage, erosion, and general wear are so extensive that the best treatment is a full mouth rehabilitation.
Dr. Chakka takes a holistic approach to full mouth rehabilitation. He creates an individualized treatment program that addresses oral health and the alignment of your teeth. It also treats each tooth to restore tooth function, improve your bite, and lessen the risk of further tooth wear.
Among the most common reasons for needing a full mouth rehabilitation is an occlusal disease, a condition caused by a poorly aligned bite.
Most people don’t think much about the position of their teeth when they bite into something. But when your teeth are misaligned, it affects how your teeth come together as you chew. Misaligned teeth cause tooth wear, stress, and damage.
Symptoms of occlusal disease include loose or dislodged teeth, jaw pain, and severe or recurring headaches. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, schedule an examination with Dr. Chakka.
