Full mouth rehabilitation, full mouth reconstruction and full mouth restoration are the terms that are often used interchangeably to explain the process of restoring or rebuilding all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. This treatment typically includes general or restorative dentists and can integrate dental specialists such as orthodontists, oral surgeons, endodontists, and periodontists.
You may need full mouth rehabilitation because:
- You have lost teeth due to trauma or decay
- Your teeth may have been fractured or injured
- Teeth have become seriously worn due to excessive and long-term acid erosion or tooth
- Prolonged complaints of a headache, jaw and muscle requiring changes to the bite
The full mouth rehabilitation approach uses two or more restoration combinations to restore all of the teeth of the patient. We, at Panwar Dental Clinic, use the latest technology, advanced techniques as well as best available materials to offer our patients the most natural looking, beautiful and best functioning teeth.
