Has your oral health fallen victim to injury, decay, neglect, or disease?
Some dental problems, such as missing teeth due to trauma or decay, require a full-mouth reconstruction – also called full-mouth rehabilitation or full-mouth restoration. It involves rebuilding or restoring all your teeth in both upper and lower jaws. A full-mouth restoration can be an extensive process and involve multiple phases and office visits. Dr. Wehrle has the expertise to handle the most advanced requirements and can make the entire process as comfortable and convenient as possible for you, the patient.

What Is Full-Mouth Rehabilitation?
Regardless of why your teeth and oral health have deteriorated, Dr. Wehrle can give you a strong, healthy, vibrant smile again through full-mouth reconstruction. At your visit, the doctor may take radiographs, examine your teeth, review your existing dental work, check occlusion (how upper and lower teeth fit together), and learn about your overall oral health. This information will allow Dr. Wehrle to understand your situation and how to help you.
Esthetics are also an important consideration in planning a full-mouth reconstruction. Dr. Wehrle will look at the shape, size, color, and proportion of your teeth, and take into account your gums, mouth, lips, and face.
These are some procedures that may be involved in a full-mouth restoration:
✓ Prophylactic teeth cleaning and gum care
✓ Preparation of your natural tooth structure before veneers, crowns, or bridges can be placed
✓ Crown lengthening to render healthy tooth structure available for possible bridges or crowns
✓ Positioning of temporary restorations with the purpose of getting comfortable with your new teeth and the feel of your new occlusion or mouth
✓ Installing permanent restorations, such as inlays/onlays, crowns, bridges, or veneers
✓ Shaping of the gum tissue to produce harmony and balance in your smile
✓ Braces that will help shift your teeth into the best possible position for reconstruction
✓ Replacement of missing teeth with dental implants and restoration
✓ Grafting of bone or soft tissue to improve the stability of your teeth, planned implants, and/or other restorations
