Full-mouth reconstruction is needed when the teeth are worn down, broken or missing, causing problems in both the bite and appearance of the mouth. The Medical Center Dental Group can totally rejuvenate your mouth, creating a healthy, beautiful smile in as few as two visits. This process is so successful that others cannot distinguish the real teeth from the restored teeth.
Technology : -
Many doctors utilize the Tens, a low level electrical impulse machine that exercises the jaw muscles and releases the lactic acid buildup from muscle overuse in the wrong position. Then the Myotronics K7, or a similar bite measurement technology, measures the jaw's muscle function in both stressed and relaxed positions. A sonograph may also be used to listen to your jaw joints. X-rays, called tomographs, measure and reveal the jaw-to-skull ratio and aid in diagnosis.
To help in the aesthetic portion of this procedure, your dentist may also use digital imaging technology to show you what your new smile will look like.
Complications : -
Once a patient commits to the use of an orthotic, the results are not easy to reverse. After just a few weeks of constant wear, the bite will shift and the muscles will begin the get used to the new, more comfortable position. If the wearer decides not to complete treatment and follow through with the full mouth restoration, and they remove the orthotic, they will experience discomfort as the muscles move back to their previous position. All of the TMJ symptoms they experienced before the orthotic was placed will return.
Keep In Mind : -
To complete this process with the best possible result for your bite, it is best to work with a doctor who can prepare your entire mouth in one appointment. Some highly qualified doctors prefer to work on one arch at a time - uppers, then lowers. If your dentist prefers to work on one tooth at a time, or in quadrants (1/4 of the mouth), it will be extremely difficult to restore your bite to a comfortable position.
How It's Done ?
Using advanced technology, the dentist measures the jaw's muscle function in both stressed and relaxed positions by running computerized scans.
If an imbalance is determined, the dentist will decide whether to treat with an orthotic appliance, or to fit the patient with dental restorations. The orthotic is a removable or fixed appliance that artificially builds up the patient's bite to a comfortable resting position. For patients that wish to eliminate the orthotic, full mouth restoration is often required.
Recovery : -
Patients who have their bite repositioned with the use of an orthotic will be under the dentists care for up to 1 year. The orthotic gently and slowly repositions the bite, creating a naturally comfortable position. The patient's progress will be monitored on a regular basis.
Patients who are then fitted with dental restorations can expect recovery to be about the same as any dental procedure. The gums may be tender for a couple days after restorations are placed on the teeth. Over the counter anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen, can ease any discomfort.
