What it is:
If possible, tooth problems are repaired by a single procedure or a short-term treatment. For certain cases, patients may require a full mouth restoration. Full mouth restorations, also known as full mouth reconstruction, is where Dr. Zaugg performs a number of treatments over time to rebuild the ability to eat, speak and/or smile.
Before beginning a full mouth rehabilitation, Dr. Zaugg does a comprehensive exam of your mouth to analyze the extent of the problem and plan out various treatment options. Dr. Zaugg will perform x-rays, digital photography and other diagnostic dental procedures.
