Full-Mouth Reconstruction in El Cajon
Full-mouth makeovers with experienced Prosthodontist
Badly broken down or missing teeth don’t have to be lived with and don’t have to be either painful or very costly to fix. Dr. Meserkhani focuses on giving people back full functionality and beauty to their smile using the latest in technology, making the experience efficient and comfortable.
With full-mouth reconstruction all of a patient’s teeth are restored to health or replaced. This makeover not only creates a beautiful, healthy smile, it enhances the person’s overall facial appearance. A bright, straight and healthy smile is in itself rejuvenating, and when the bite is improved, and a full set of teeth are present to support the lower face, it can also act as a facelift.
Experience & skill to do it right
Dr. Vahik Meserkhani is a well-known prosthodontist—a dentist who specializes in replacing missing teeth and restoring natural teeth. He lectures internationally on prosthodontics and oral implantology. An advocate of “progressive dentistry”, he has constantly increased and refined his skills.
Dr. Meserkhani has been awarded a Diplomate from the American Board of Oral Implantology, the most important and difficult certification in oral implantology, a certification that has been awarded to less than 500 dentists in the United States since 1969.
Creating harmony and aesthetics for even the most complicated cases
As a prosthodontist and an oral implantologist Dr. Meserkhani employs his unique skills to create harmony in function and aesthetics in a person’s mouth.
There are many factors to look out for when recreating a healthy mouth for a patient. Dr. Meserkhani looks at the overall picture and takes into account:
- Gum health
- Amount of bone available for dental implants
- The current bite and how the bite will change with the new teeth
- Color and shape of the teeth
- Form of the smile
- Gum line of the new smile
Dr. Meserkhani uses his own private lab to ensure that all ceramic work is of a high standard. He can monitor the exact color and shape and customize crowns, dentures and veneers for each individual.

Procedures Dr. Meserkhani uses in full-mouth reconstruction
When you come to Rancho San Diego Dental you have the advantage of being treated by three experts who come together to plan your full-mouth reconstruction and to give you the best possible treatment.
For many cases, Dr. Meserkhani teams up with our periodontist, Dr. Henriod to handle aggressive gum disease, and Dr. Christensen for his expertise in biomimetic dentistry. Dr. Meserkhani usually performs all or most of the procedure, including the final restorations (bridges, crowns or dentures).
“All complications come from the fact that the surgeon who places the implant is generally separate from the dentist who places the restoration,” says Dr. Meserkhani, “the implants are placed without the final plan fully in mind and the dentist who restores just has to go along with what has been done.”
Clell had a full-mouth reconstruction.
“I have had dental problems for most of my adult life, and the time had come to reconstruct my entire mouth. The task that confronted me was: ‘Where do I find a dentist with the qualifications to perform the extensive work required, and at what cost?’
“Dr. Meserkhani was the third of many dentists I interviewed. As I continued my search, I found myself using Dr. Meserkhani as the standard to compare all others to. At this juncture, I returned to his practice for a second interview, which assured me I had found the right doctor. The cost was also within my budget and comparable to all qualified others.
“Though the amount of work required was exhaustive, it all went extremely well, due to the high-tech procedures and instruments in the hands of the most qualified doctor, who was surrounded by a highly trained and efficient staff.
“I have now had ample time to chew the most difficult of foods and have been 100% successful, without exception. My new teeth feel natural, and my family and I think they look great.”
