Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full Mouth Reconstruction is a common treatment for patients with TMJ disorders. Dentists with deep understanding of restorative dentistry coupled with an thorough knowledge of jaw function, can rebuild all your teeth so that your jaw will begin to function harmoniously, and you can be relieved of pain.
A part of full mouth reconstruction involves finding your optimal jaw position. This may seem like a straightforward question, but, because of the great complexity of the jaw joint and the way we chew, and the way teeth come together, it requires a great amount of expertise for a dentist to find that correct position for a particular patient. If this step is done properly, it greatly increases the longevity of restorations and natural dentition.
Another part of this process is finding the correct distance of separation between the upper and lower jaws.

Additional Information About Full Mouth Reconstruction
To help our patients make the best decision for their oral health needs and cosmetic goals, Dr. Chal has provided answers to some of the most common questions about Full Mouth Reconstruction.

How is Full Mouth Reconstruction different from smile design?
Both smile design and Full Mouth Reconstruction are dedicated to improving your teeth, jaw, and gums. Smile design utilizes either all cosmetic treatments or a combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures. In contrast, Full Mouth Reconstruction uses either all restorative techniques or a combination of restorative and esthetic approaches. As you can see, there is more in common with these procedures than different, and they are simply terms for patients to use to indicate they want more comprehensive oral care than a single method (cosmetic or reconstructive) can provide. At our practice, many of the people who undergo Full Mouth Reconstruction are seeking to alleviate complications and symptoms associated with TMJ disorder. But you don’t have to have TMJ disorder to be a candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction. During your initial consultation, we encourage you to voice all your concerns and ask all your questions. With this information, Dr. Chal can provide guidance that is personalized to your unique anatomic needs and expressed goals.
