Full Mouth Reconstruction New York
Full mouth reconstruction is the process of rebuilding or rehabilitating your mouth to ideal dental health. Full mouth reconstruction may involve a combination of general, restorative, periodontic, and orthodontic dental procedures to address the position of the teeth and the alignment of the jaw. Full mouth reconstruction may be recommended for patients who have serious dental issues including missing teeth, poorly functioning bites, large amounts of old and failing dental work, tooth grinding issues, and those who experience the chronic issues of TMJ.
At SmilesNY, our state of the art facility is fully equipped to offer full mouth reconstruction in New York City. Drawing on the combined efforts of our general, cosmetic, and restorative dentists and our on-site periodontist, our expert team at SmilesNY can develop an effective full mouth reconstruction treatment plan that’s right for you.
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Sometimes called neuromuscular dentistry, the goal of full mouth reconstruction is to place the jaw in its optimal position and restore a healthy, well-functioning smile. A misaligned jaw can lead to several physiological problems, including:
- Jaw pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Ringing in the ears
- “Clicking” or “popping” sounds in the jaw joint
What are the Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Patients who undergo full mouth reconstruction experience a range of benefits. Full mouth reconstruction can eliminate the physiological problems caused by jaw misalignment, leading to better overall health and longer-lasting dental restorations.
How is Full Mouth Reconstruction performed?
The first step towards full mouth reconstruction is a consultation. The goal of this initial consultation, which is the first of three primary visits, is to evaluate the condition of your teeth, gums, and jaw.
In order to determine your ideal jaw position, the doctors at SmilesNY relax the jaw muscles and use advanced computer diagnostics to determine the cause of your jaw alignment problem. Tension or pain that contribute to TMJ problems are often the result of poor occlusion and shortened or damaged teeth. Once your ideal occlusion is determined, restorations can be made to achieve that position.
What procedures are involved in Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Your full mouth reconstruction may require a combination of general, restorative, periodontic, and orthodontic procedures based on the specific nature of your case. These procedures may include:
- Crown Lengthening
- Dental Implant placements
- Bone Grafting
- Gum Grafting
- Porcelain Veneers
- Porcelain Onlays and Inlays
- Enamel Recontouring
Your individual treatment plan will be determined during your initial consultations at SmilesNY.
