The aspect of cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth and gums by correcting broken, chipped, discolored and irregularly arranged teeth. The treatments that are performed may include dental bleaching, dental implants and veneers.
The aspect of neuromuscular dentistry is a dental treatment approach that focuses on the correction of jaw malformations. Here, we seek to alleviate the stress on the jaw muscles and reduce painful symptoms associated with temporomandibular joint disorder.
Neuromuscular dentistry is also the process of measuring and determining the most favorable position of your jaw. After identifying the lowest possible position of your jaw, with the help of your dentist, you can appropriately adjust it using orthotics or with other dental restoration treatments.
The process of full mouth rehabilitation involves the assessment of the function of your jaw musculature, both in the stressed and relaxed posture through computer-aided scans of your jaw.
Based on the results, your dentist can then offer to reposition your jaw with orthotics or dental restorations. Once your jaw is in the right position, your pain and discomfort will be less or less. Once your jaw is set, your dentist then moves to restore your natural bite.
With full mouth rehabilitation, your oral health is fine-tuned for improved performance and enhanced beauty giving you a more attractive and pleasant look.
