Full Mouth Rehabilitation
The skills and artistry needed when doing a Full Mouth Rehabilitation, is where Dr. Spoor's process and abilities really shows. A Full Mouth Rehabilitation enhances the appearance of the smile and corrects imperfections iin bite position and improves overall health. This procedure is generally reserved for patients with significant dental breakdown or trauma often accompanied by pain. Chipped teeth, short, worn-down teeth, painful teeth during chewing, jaw pain, headaches, missing teeth, breaking teeth, decayed teeth, periodontally compromised teeth, endodontically damaged teeth can be repaired and restored with Full Mouth Rehabilitation. Combining form and function through the art of cosmetic dentistry with obtaining the correct bite position lets you finally have a smile that is both beautiful and comfortable. Full Mouth Rehabilitation is one of the key dental services we perform on patients everyday.
Using the concept of form follows function, Dr. Spoor and his team measures the position of your jaw and determines its' ideal position (Neuromuscular dentistry, see below). The process involves using a sophisticated computer program to record and define joint sounds, muscle activity during rest and chewing, and the path of movement the jaw follows to full closure. Using this information, we can find the most appropriate position of your jaw for comfort and aesthetics.
Once this position is determined, several methods (appliance therapy, recontouring, orthodontics, restorative dentistry, orthognathic surgery) may be employed to move the jaw back to its natural and comfortable place. Final restoration can involve many combinations of techniques and materials and customized to the individual patient requirements. The underlying philosophy is to create the most beautiful, natural, comfortable, healthful and durable result possible. It can be truly positively life changing.
