Full mouth rehabilitation describes the process of simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in the upper and lower jaw to restore and maintain oral function, comfort, appearance and health.

Healthy gums and teeth and a closed row of teeth gives an attractive and harmonious appearance and are important for daily tasks such as speaking, eating, laughing and kissing, as well as for general health.

If you have problems with your oral health such as fractures and / or missing teeth, or you are at risk of losing some teeth or have unhealthy gums (periodontitis), then I can help you in my Zahnarztpraxis Uetikon am See to help to regain your lost quality of life, well-being, and self-confidence in your daily life, thanks to modern and advanced state-of-the-art method.


Full mouth rehabilitation could involve a multidisciplinary approach to different dental specialities such as general dentistry (restorative, periodontic, endodontic, prosthetic), oral surgery and orthodontics to improve the health, function and aesthetics of your mouth.

The need for full mouth rehabilitation may result from:

  • Teeth lost due to decay or trauma (dental accidents).

  • Teeth that have been injured or fractured.

  • Teeth that are severely worn from grinding (bruxism), parafunctional occlusal habits, or long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux).

  • Persistant complaints of jaw pain, muscle pain and headache requiring bite adjustments (occlusion)


A comprehensive investigation will determine the extend of the problem and the treatment options that can resolve it.

The clinical investigation process involves consulting your:

  • Teeth: depending on the presence of cavities and / or caries, tooth structure wear, cracks, short / long teeth, root canal problems and tooth mobility, decide which restorative procedures are required (veneers or dental crowns with full coverage, inlays, onlays, overlays, dental bridges or with dental implant(s) restored with a crown.

  • Periodontal tissue (gums): if your gums are not healthy and / or have deep pockets, LASER treatment assisted deep cleaning and root planning may be needed to treat periodontitis to ensure a solid foundation. Too much gum (gummy smile) may need to be reduced. Insufficient gums can be restored through soft tissue and / or bone augmentation.

  • Temporomandibular joints (TMJ), jaw muscles and occlusion: a stable bite (occlusion) that does not cause pain when you close your mouth or chew and does not cause wear or damage to your teeth is important. Occlusal changes must be taken seriously when planning the restorations. In fact, you may need orthodontics or another type of treatment (night guard / Michigan guard) to correct the occlusion before additional restorative procedures can be performed.

  • Aesthetics: the color, shape, size and proportions of your teeth, as well as their appearance in relation to your gums, lips, face and profile are important factors for full oral rehabilitation.

Other requirements are records of your mouth such as x-rays and photographs, impressions of both arches and bite registration, plaster models of your teeth made from the impressions. A diagnostic "wax-up" is performed for the desired contour, occlusal scheme and esthetic aspects of the final restoration. Attention is paid to the individual tooth morphology, tooth axis and interdental contacts (occlusion).


Once we have received all the information relevant to your case, a collaborative, step-by-step, customized treatment plan will be developed to correct and improve any issues in your mouth to complete your restorations.

Most full mouth rehabilitation reconstructions involve several phases and visits in my Zahnarztpraxis Uetikon am See. Depending on your situation, timeline depends on the specific procedures and treatments included.

After treatment is completed, an individual recall-program is developed to ensure long-lasting results.
