Full Mouth Rehabilitation
in Pasadena, CA
Full mouth rehabilitation is a great option for patients with multiple dental issues or concerns, looking to replace multiple teeth and regain optimal oral health. Full mouth rehabilitation is typically used to restore severely worn (flattened) ordamaged teeth. This can be due to decades of traumatic attrition and wear, which leadsto loss of vertical dental dimension (teeth seem shorter and shorter), and loss of facialsupport (face and lower jaw can seem collapsed).
Full mouth rehabilitation typically involves various porcelain restorations to be placed on all remaining teeth to restore them to their original state. Taking place over several appointments, full mouth rehabilitation restores your smile to the function and beauty it deserves, giving you a gorgeous new grin you’ll be proud of.
Rejuvenate Worn Teeth
Full mouth rehabilitation can rejuvenate severely worn teeth back to their original, youthful appearance. You’d be surprised how many years a smile makeover can take off of your face, rejuvenating your appearance and helping you look and feel more youthful, radiant, and confident.
Regain Lost Facial Support
Missing teeth often cause a decrease in facial support, and can change the way your jaw and face appear. With full mouth rehabilitation, we can give you back the facial support needed to eat, chew, and smile with confidence.
Improve TMJ pain
Full mouth rehabilitation can also address issues of misalignment that contribute to TMJ disorders and subsequent pain. With a brand new smile, you’ll experience the joys of pain-free living in addition to the confidence that comes from your restored grin.
What is the full mouth rehab process?
Occurring over several appointments, full mouth rehabilitation begins with examinations and impressions that help us get the most accurate picture of your current teeth and gums. From there, we prepare you for your temporary restorations by removing decay, damaged teeth, or existing dental work that may stand in the way of your new smile. Finally, we create custom restorations to replace missing teeth and restore your smile to its optimal form and function.
Using our state-of-the-art 3D scanner we can quickly take digital impressions of your smile without the old-school messy method. This gives us an accurate representation of your current oral health and the condition of your teeth and gums.
Using 3D rendering we can create a visual representation of your expected outcome before you even begin treatment! We find this helps patients get excited about the brand-new smile they can expect.
Prepare for Temporary Restoration
Preparing for your restorations may include different steps depending on your dental needs—ranging from extractions of decaying teeth, root canal therapy for teeth with infected tissue, fillings, or oral surgery. Any damage or decay will be done away with and you’ll be ready for your brand-new grin.
It’s time to complete your smile makeover! The last step in the process is for your custom restorations to be placed. This will look different for each patient, but if you’re missing many teeth it might consist of a full set of dental implants. You’ll walk out of our office ready to debut your radiant new smile that’s as healthy as it is beautiful.

How long does full mouth rehabilitation last?
With proper care, your dental implants can and should be permanent. Ensuring the longevity of your restorations comes down to following the post-op care outlined by our team and taking good care of your oral health, including brushing and flossing every day and coming in for routine preventive care.
Does full mouth habilitation hurt?
Your treatments should not hurt thanks to the sedation options we offer. Some patients report minor discomfort after treatments, but over-the-counter pain medications can usually handle this.
