What is Oral Rehabilitation?

Most people can avoid common dental concerns with daily maintenance like brushing and flossing, as well as by visiting the dentist for routine cleanings and fluoride treatment. Failing to implement a preventative routine can lead to cavities and gum disease, which cause permanent harm and threaten your overall smile. Damaged teeth due to decay or trauma can also be painful, lower self-confidence, and affect your lifestyle.

A complex oral rehabilitation is a restorative treatment that repairs damaged teeth and gums to stop pain and embarrassment and improve overall functionality. Thanks to Dr. Morgan’s experience, our dental treatments will give you a healthy, attractive smile.

Who Needs Oral Rehabilitation?

Any patient with functional dental issues is a good candidate for complex rehabilitation. We typically offer restorative services for the following conditions:

  • Tooth decay
  • Damaged teeth
  • Yellow, discolored teeth
  • Severe toothaches and abscesses
  • Gum disease
  • Missing teeth

Common Oral Rehabilitation Treatments

Our restorative treatments start with an evaluation by Dr. Morgan. He may suggest one or more of the following treatments based on his findings and your goals.

Dental Fillings

Everyone is susceptible to cavities no matter their age. These small holes in the teeth form after bacteria wear down the tooth enamel and enter the tooth. If left untreated, a cavity can lead to tooth pain and eventually cause the tooth to abscess. Dr. Morgan uses white, minimally-invasive fillings to seal these holes and prevent more bacteria from entering the tooth. These restorations are durable and blend in with your teeth, making them nearly invisible.

Root Canal Therapy

Severe infections can spread deep into the tooth, gums, and bone. Root canal therapy is a common procedure used to clean out infected nerve tissues and seal off vulnerable teeth. Because these teeth are non-vital, we typically recommend a dental crown after the endodontic procedure to protect the affected tooth.

Dental Crowns

Tooth decay and trauma can cause severe damage and put teeth at risk of additional breakage. Bacteria can enter teeth through these cracks and holes, leading to cavities and dental abscesses.

Dental crowns are restorations that cover the entire tooth, sealing it off and reinforcing the overall structure for everyday use. Dr. Morgan custom plans each crown to ensure the color, shape, and size blend in with the neighboring teeth.

Dental Implants

Missing several teeth can have a severe impact on your overall health. A few missing teeth can affect the way you speak or eat. But your jaw and facial structure can completely change when you have several missing teeth. The jawbone needs stimulation from the teeth and will begin to deteriorate without it.

Dental implants not only serve as cosmetic restorations by filling gaps in your smile, but they also play a functional role by restoring chewing and speaking abilities. And most notably, Lubbock dental implants fuse with your bone to keep it stimulated and strong. The dental implant process typically requires several visits to complete. However, your new teeth will look and feel natural and can last for a lifetime with the proper care.

Schedule Your Appointment

Without functional teeth, you may be experiencing pain, embarrassment, and the inability to eat healthy foods. Our complex rehabilitations can put an end to your struggle and restore full oral functionality, no matter how long it’s been since your last dental appointment.
