Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Preservation and restoration of the jawbone begins at the time of extraction of teeth. Bone and soft tissue grafting techniques performed in conjunction with extractions may decrease or prevent bone loss under dentures.
Dentists have developed many procedures for treating a patient without teeth who suffers with the socio-physical problems caused by ill-fitting dentures. Our dentists will explore these options with you before deciding a treatment plan. If shrinkage of jawbone has taken place and some ridge height and width remains, our dentists may use bone or bone substitute to build up the jawbone.
Depending on the degree of shrinkage, this treatment sometimes can be completed in the office. After careful evaluation of a patient’s particular case, it might be decided that implants are necessary to support a denture and restore proper function.
Depending on your current dental situation, your goals and available budget, the appropriate treatment option is chosen.
At Wellness Dental Center you would be offered (3) three options for full mouth rehabilitation and Smile Makeover.
Overdenture is a removable denture that fits over a small number of implants (usually 2 in lower jaw and 4 in upper jaw). If your denture is loose, overdenture supported with dental implants is a solution for you. We proudly use original ZEST locators. To provide you with a better understanding of the procedures please watch the following presentation.

New dentures may feel awkward for a few weeks until you are accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. You may consult our dentists if you have any other persisting problems with your dentures. The follow-up appointments with our dentist are generally needed after a denture is inserted.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call us (805) 496-3347.
