Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Full Mouth Rehabilitation/Smile Makeover


Full mouth rehabilitation is a term used to describe a situation in which a person requires significant treatment to restore normal health, function, and esthetics. This type of treatment will involve a complex mix of different procedures, techniques, and restorative options. 


Who Requires a Full Mouth Rehabilitation?


There are a variety of reasons a person may require this type of comprehensive, meticulously planned treatment. These reasons include the absence of multiple teeth, widespread tooth decay, failing dental work, cracked or broken teeth, or severely worn teeth may all require a person to seek full mouth rehabilitation. Additionally, some people are born with conditions that will ultimately require extensive treatment of damaged or missing dentition. 


What is the process of completing Full Mouth Rehabilitation?


When beginning the process of full mouth rehabilitation or a complex smile makeover, Dr. Hammaker believes it is integral to understand exactly what the patient’s goals and desires are. Every situation is unique, and therefore treatment should be tailored to each patient. He will work with you to develop a clear, step-by-step, comprehensive plan of treatment before any work commences. During treatment you will be fitted with custom provisional teeth that will allow you to smile and function normally until you receive your final restorations. Your final restorations will be custom designed to best meet your functional and esthetic needs.

Dr. Hammaker is a board-eligible prosthodontist who completed four years of dental training at the University of Michigan and an additional three years of training in Prosthodontics at the University of Michigan. He chose to complete this extra training to increase his knowledge and skill set with dental prosthetics (dentures, partial dentures), implant placement and restoration, and full mouth rehabilitation.
