Full mouth rehabilitation is a dental treatment procedure that address and corrects poorly aligned jaws and worn, missing, broken or crooked teeth. Blending the science of neuromuscular dentistry with the artistry of cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation creates smiles that are as beautiful as they healthy and functional.
Extraoral examination depicted no facial asymmetry or muscle tenderness. The mandibular range of motion was within normal limits. Intraoral examination established grossly attrited dentition in both maxillary and mandibular arches. Both the arches were fully dentate with spacing between maxillary and mandibular anterior tooth. The patient had a bilateral class I molar relation and a canine-guided occlusion. Approximately 3 mm of loss in VDO was established. Full-mouth reconstruction with the Hobo twin-stage technique was planned to reconstruct the attrited dentition in functional harmony to the stomatognathic system while providing a canine-guided disocclusion during eccentric movements. An increase of 3 mm of vertical dimension was also planned. The amount of bite rise to be achieved was also evaluated using the “Closest S-speaking space” or the “Freeway space” technique.
Prosthodontics (Full Mouth Rehabilitation) is the dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment, planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes.
