We, at Smile Zone Dental Care Centrefirmly believe that all our patients deserve fixed teeth, so we do not give any option of removable dentures supported by implants. This ensures that our valuable patients achieve the best quality dental treatments while replacing their missing teeth with the prosthesis. Therefore, full mouth rehabilitation is an excellent choice for the patients who are edentulous or have very few teeth left in their mouth. Also, patients with multiple missing teeth or the ones who have aesthetically or functionally poor quality of teeth are also good candidates for the full mouth rehabilitation procedures.
Full-mouth rehabilitation of the worn dentition presents the clinician with many challenges and potential pitfalls. A systematic approach to diagnosis, treatment planning, and risk management is crucial for a predictable outcome. A staged approach to restoring the worn dentition provides the clinician opportunity to evaluate how a patient will respond to occlusal and esthetic changes. In this case, a 61-year-old retired engineer presented with concerns about the wear on his teeth (Figure 1). The case demonstrates the benefits of a staged approach and describes the successful alteration of the initial treatment plan when changes were necessary to better manage risk.
