Using the full mouth reconstruction process to repair the smile
Patients who have had significant damage to the teeth and gums from advanced periodontitis (infection also known as periodontal disease or gum disease), tooth decay, or trauma to the mouth may want to ask their dental team about full mouth reconstruction. Drs. Jennifer Wahlen, and John Torghele of Wahlen Dentistry, Perry, Utah, are dedicated to helping patients restore their smile’s function, appearance, and dental health when extensive problems arise.
What is full mouth reconstruction?
The restoration and rehabilitation of the smile with a combination of treatments are often known as full mouth reconstruction.

At the same time, this series of treatments will improve the patient’s oral health and the function of the teeth and gums and allow patients to restore their self-confidence.
