Full Jaw Restoration

A jaw restoration procedure is a type of teeth replacement treatment. It is ideal for those people who went through intense tooth loss or mouth trauma. In this procedure, dental implants and screw-retained prostheses are used. Dental implants in full jaw restoration procedures look very similar to natural teeth.


This procedure restores the overall aesthetic of the mouth and speaking ability in a patient. The full jaw restoration procedure constitutes dental implants, tiny screws, and prosthetic teeth to place the teeth in dental implants and gives a whole set of new teeth in the upper or lower jaw.


Who requires full jaw restoration?


Patients with severe dental problems are the best candidates for this procedure. These dental problems include:



  • Loss of teeth due to decay
  • Severe injured or fractured jaw
  • Gum disease
  • Misaligned bite
  • Severely worn teeth
  • Constantly unmanageable jaw pain
  • Pain in the temporomandibular joint
  • Severe acid reflux


Procedure for Full Jaw Restoration


Dentists usually divide this procedure into multiple phases or steps. These steps are performed based on the dental health of the patient and their needs. The whole jaw restoration procedure takes 12 or more 12 months, based on your mouth condition.


 Following are the full jaw restoration procedure steps:


  • Deep teeth cleaning
  • Bone grafting (for those patients who have been missing a large number of teeth)
  • Crown lengthening for crowns or bridges
  • Reposition of the jaw with orthodontic surgery
  • Gum tissue contouring to create balance for a decent smile
  • Preparation of tooth structure for the placement of crowns or veneers
  • Emplacement of temporary restoration to make your teeth adjustable to your new teeth
  • Placement of permeant restoration, which includes veneers, bridges, or crowns
  • Restoration and placement of implants to substitute missing tooth


In the first week after the procedure, your gums and jaw will be sensitive, and you may notice swelling in your gums during the healing process.
