When’s the last time you smiled confidently, ate what you wanted and lived without restrictions? With numerous missing teeth, many struggle with painful and embarrassing symptoms every day. We understand how much of a toll an incomplete smile can have on you, your loved ones and your life. That’s why we offer personalized treatment plans tailored to not only your unique functional, health and aesthetic needs, but your budget as well. Dr. Rebecca Wagner, our board-certified periodontist, has over three decades of experience providing personalized and transformative full mouth restorations—including full mouth dental implants in Chambersburg, PA.
We’re not in the business of telling you what you need, though. We want to hear your concerns and questions before educating you on your options. We encourage you to come in for a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Wagner but before you do, review the information we’ve laid out below so you’re more educated on your options.

Our full mouth dental implants experience
At the Wagner Centre, we consider education a critical component of your care. Before any treatment begins, we’ll be sure to review in as much detail as you’d like, what you can expect every step of the way. Below is a general breakdown of a fixed full arch and implant supported overdenture process but come in for a consultation and we can give you your personalized treatment plan and timeline!
During your one-hour consultation with our specialist, Dr. Wagner, you’ll be able to discuss your particular needs, smile goals and concerns as well as any health conditions we should consider. You’ll also receive a CT scan using our cone beam CT imaging technology. Captured in 15 seconds or less, these 3D, high-quality images will be able to give us an in-depth view of your current oral health and help us determine the most ideal treatment plan to meet your needs.
Together we’ll discuss the best option for you and if you’d like, you can see before and after case studies from our real patients and learn how their treatment truly changed their lives. Pricing, insurance coverage and financing options will also be discussed. If dental implants are best for you, our team completes precise surgical planning before you return for your next appointment. First accomplished digitally, we then create a guide to ensure each implant placed is in the exact angle, depth and location for optimal, lasting success and ideal aesthetics.
2. Surgical Appointment
On the day of your surgery, you’ll be able to check in to our front desk before being taken to your private suite. All of our rooms are soundproof. Using our Sonos sound system, you can select your favorite music and relax while you receive your new smile. Patients rarely experience pain during their care, however, we do offer sedation options, as well as Ajax, our emotional support husky, to ensure you’re calm and comfortable throughout and after your procedure. Before placing your dental implants, you may need bone grafting treatment or tooth extractions to ensure the success of your implants. In many cases, our patients are able to receive these treatments from Dr. Wagner during the same surgical appointment as their implant placement.
Using the pre-planned two-dimensional and three-dimensional surgical guides created before you arrived, we place two to eight dental implants depending on your treatment option. Whether you need one arch or a full mouth of new teeth, your entire surgical phase can be completed in just one day. We consider it our responsibility to ensure your implant is placed as accurately and successfully as possible to guarantee it lasts as long as possible. That’s why we make sure the torque values of each implant are above average – at least 35 Ncm. Before moving to our relaxing recovery room, we’ll be sure to place your temporary teeth which function and look just like natural teeth. You’ll never go a single day without a complete smile again!
3. Final Restoration
A couple of days later, you’ll visit with Dr. Wagner for post-operative care. We’ll monitor your healing process for the next few months until your bone has successfully healed and you’re ready for your final restoration. If receiving a fixed, full arch bridge, you may come in for wax rim try-ins to ensure your final, personalized bridge(s) truly fits your smile. With top-of-the-line standards, we offer our patients bridges made form porcelain layered zirconia. The quality of restorations out there can vary. Some look natural and others look fake. Focused on both function and aesthetics, we consider zirconia restorations the best option on the market today, able to match the look of natural teeth almost exactly while offering durable function.
If you have an existing restorative dentist, we can work closely with them to ensure they have all the information they need. We also work with a network of trusted restorative dentists and prosthodontists and will be happy to schedule your appointment so you can relax and start enjoying the new you. If you’re only receiving one implant supported denture or fixed full arch bridge, we also offer teeth bleaching or whitening to ensure surrounding teeth match your new look.
