Full mouth rehabilitation (or full mouth reconstruction) is a dental treatment which includes restoration and/or replacement of all or most of the teeth by means of artificial restorations. It is done in order to restore the debilitated bite. It is a complex inter-disciplinary treatment, which requires advanced planning, designing and execution.
What is the treatment procedure?
The treatment plan is customized according to each patient’s requirements. Overall the treatment is typically divided in several stages. In the initial planning stage, the dentist evaluates the condition of the mouth taking into consideration the patients desires, and cost requirements. A series of impressions are made for study models as well as intraoral photographs are taken to zero in on an ideal treatment plan. A wax up is made to give the patient an approximate estimation of the final treatment outcome.
In the active treatment stage necessary procedures are performed. The patient is maintained on a set of temporary crowns for a period of 4 to 6 weeks so that the patient is used to the new rehabilitated bite. Once the patient has adjusted to the new bite, rest of the procedure is completed with permanent restorations.
In the maintenance phase, patient is recalled for six monthly or annual clean ups and checkups.
Treatment time of full mouth rehabilitation depends on the patient’s clinical condition and may take somewhere from several weeks to months in the most demanding cases.
