Basic Concept in Full Mouth Rehabilitation An Overview

Dr Ankush Jain*,Dr Umesh Palekar**, Dr Rajeev Srivastava***, Dr Vivek Choukse***

ABSTRACT: Full mouth rehabilitation continues to be the biggest challenge toany
clinician in restorative dentistry. It requires efficient diagnosis and elaborates treatment
planning to develop ordered occlusal contacts and harmonious articulation in order to
optimize stomathognathic function, health and esthetics which then translates to patient's
comfort and satisfaction. Aim of this article is to discuss about application and selection of
different technique for full mouth rehabilitation. Several techniques of full mouth
rehabilitations are available and a clinician should ascribe to one after a comprehensive
diagnosis of the patient's clinical condition and prospective consideration of his/her oral
