There are 3 types of Full-Mouth Dental Treatments:
1. Tooth-Supported Full-Mouth Dental Treatment – Recommended for people with moderate-to-severe wear of their teeth. This is common with patients who grind or clench their teeth.
2. Implant-Supported Full-Mouth Dental Treatment – Recommended for people with extensive tooth decay, moderate-to-severe periodontal disease, numerous missing teeth, and more. These patients are treated with implant bridges that are supported by 6 to 8 dental implants in the upper jaw and 4 to 6 dental implants in the lower jaw.
3. Combination Full-Mouth Dental Treatment – Combination tooth- and implant-supported full-mouth dental treatments are indicated for people who do not need all of their teeth removed.

What Can You Expect from Full-Mouth Dental Treatment?
Step 1: Diagnostic Wax-up and Esthetic Evaluation
Preliminary impressions of made your teeth. A diagnostic wax-up or tooth setup are completed to help preview what the final restorations will look like. After you approve the initial size, shape, and position of the teeth, the treatment sequence is determined. The goal of full-mouth dental treatment is the final restorations to match the initial diagnostic setup with slight improvements.
Step 2: Place Temporary Restorations
The teeth are prepared and the dental implants are placed. Fixed temporary restorations matching the approved diagnostic set up are placed. After the temporary teeth have been placed, minor changes can be made to the shape, size, and position of the teeth.
Step 3: Deliver Final Restorations
