The main goal of full mouth rehabilitation is to improve your facial appearance and increase chewing efficiency and function . For many patients this is the best course of treatment because it can tackle multiple issues like decay, gum disease, missing teeth and misalignment all at once.
Together we will create a tailored treatment strategy with the objective of rebuilding the optimal dental structure in your mouth and to help you reclaim your ability to have improved function and show-off a healthy smile.
As the name implies, a full-mouth rehabilitation refers to the process of restoring most or all of your teeth, and may also include gum treatments if you are suffering from gum disease. This treatment is generally only required if most of your teeth have been damaged due to oral neglect, gum disease, tooth infections and decay, or major dental trauma, such as a car accident.
Because each patient is different, the procedures used for full-mouth rehabilitation also can vary quite a bit at our Dedham dental office. Treatments like dentures, dental bridges, or dental implants may be used to restore missing teeth. Dental crowns, fillings, and/or root canals may be required to restore infected or damaged teeth. Periodontal treatments are used to control and eliminate gum disease, and cosmetic dentistry like porcelain veneers may also be required to cover up misshapen or stained teeth.
However, the end result is always the same. After full-mouth rehabilitation at Digital Dental Studio, you’ll have a healthy mouth, a functional and natural-looking smile, and the ability to resume your day-to-day life without worrying about your oral health.
During your visit, the Dr. Vishart will first examine your teeth and gums to determine your specific needs. Some types of restorative procedures are minimally invasive, while others are little bit more invasive, such as implants or extractions.
– Restore Existing Teeth:
Our goal is to save as many of your natural teeth as possible. So, to prevent further decay to damaged teeth, Dr. Vishart will determine if you need tooth fillings or veneers to restore and improve the functionality and aesthetics of the teeth, mouth, and smile.
– Full Mouth Implant Restoration:
A full mouth reconstruction can involve the combination of several different dental treatments in order to get the desired outcome, like dental implants, crowns, dental bridges or dentures. Every patient is different and your treatment will depend on your specific needs.
– All on X (con link)
Rather than living with the hassles of dentures, many people opt for full-mouth dental implant restorations or all on X. You don’t need a dental implant for every one of your missing teeth. Dr. Vishart can attach an entire row of upper or lower teeth using 6 precisely placed implants.

The first step is scheduling a consultation, in which we will go over your needs and goals. Once the treatment plan is developed, we will discuss the time frame for each procedure as well as the total treatment time. Since every program is individual and tailored to the patient’s unique parameters, your experience can vary from someone else who may choose a different selection of techniques.
We will help you become well-informed about each stage of the process and what you can expect at each point. Some procedures can be completed in a single office visit, while others will require extended care.
These are some possible treatments and restorations we might include in your treatment plan:
When you don’t feel good about your smile, it impacts your life in ways big and small. Maybe it’s become second-nature to smile with tightly closed lips when someone wants to take a picture or to hold your hand over your mouth when you laugh so no one can see your teeth, but the sadness and how uncomfortable you feel every time you look in the mirror never fades. If this describes you, a full mouth reconstruction may be a game-changer.
A full mouth reconstruction process is ideal for patients with different dental issues that cannot be resolved with one procedure alone. Dr. Vishart can restore your teeth, bite, and overall smile by combining multiple procedures under the same treatment plan.
All patients with various dental diseases may be candidates for complete mouth repair. Whether you are unable to eat your favorite foods or are experiencing severe tooth, gum, and jaw discomfort, missing teeth and severe tooth decay a full mouth reconstruction can help.
The length of time it takes to complete your full mouth reconstruction will depend on the complexity of your treatment plan. For example, if bone grafting is needed, we may need to wait months in order to see if they are successful before proceeding with other treatments. At your consultation, Dr. Vishart and her team will accurately inform you on how long you will be undergoing the treatment for.
You will receive local anesthetic for the duration of the procedure, so you won’t feel a thing. During the initial stages of the healing process, you may experience some mild discomfort which can be treated with over the counter painkillers. You should not experience any significant pain whilst undergoing this treatment.
Full mouth reconstruction treatment plans are highly tailored to each patient. For that reason, the price of this service can vary significantly depending on which procedures you undergo, the materials used and the extent of work you may need.
On your consultation, our team will provide you with a personalized plan and cost of what your full mouth reconstruction, detailing the fees associated with each procedure and go over your dental insurance coverage, if applicable. We want you to be well-informed and confident in the process, and we welcome any questions you have.
Your full mouth reconstruction journey may involve several procedures, each of which will come with unique recovery expectations. Remember, any inconveniences you experience during your treatment process will be well worth it when you have a brand new smile to show off!
Out of all the restorative treatments we offer as part of a full mouth restoration, dental implants require the longest recovery period. This is because they must have sufficient time to fuse to the bone tissue, called osseointegration, it usually takes between three to six months on average. Once the implants have fully healed, your final restoration can be placed.
The longevity of a full mouth implant relies on several factors including quality of oral hygiene, force of bite and general implant maintenance. Although the exact length of time can never be determined, full mouth dental implants are made to last. With all the proper care, the results should be permanent and can last you a lifetime!
