Full Mouth Rejuvenation & Neuromuscular Dentistry
Serving Northern Virginia including Oakton, Fairfax, Reston, Alexandria, Arlington and Washington D.C.
A full mouth rejuvenation, or full mouth reconstruction, is a smile makeover plus more. It is more than cosmetic work, although it can include any amount of cosmetic work. It also addresses your bite, also known as your occlusion. This is the way the upper and lower teeth come together, and is a function of how well your jaw joint works and how well your teeth are placed. A misaligned bite is uncomfortable and is closely inter-related with a misaligned jaw joint.
The jaw joint is small and delicate and very flexible. You can feel it by opening your mouth with a finger placed in front of one ear. This is where the lower jaw (mandible) meets the skull, and it’s a little ball-and-socket joint. Most dentists don’t address any jaw joint issues. If you have a misaligned bite, you need to see a neuromuscular dentist.
Neuromuscular Dentist Dr. Chung is a graduate of LVI, the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. It attracts dentists from all over the world and teaches advanced techniques and theory of both cosmetic dentistry and neuromuscular dentistry.
Dr. Chung is well-trained to provide whole-mouth dental care, treating not just your teeth. but your gums, jaw, and muscles as well to provide a result that is cosmetic and functional. The effects of a healthy smile go far beyond your mouth. Not only will you feel a tremendous boost in confidence, but you may see far-reaching health effects, including the improvement of conditions you would never have imagined were related to your dental problems.
Symptoms of a Jaw Joint Problem
These symptoms are many, varied, and painful or at least uncomfortable. They can appear in any combination and you can read more about them on our TMD Symptoms page. The most common and painful symptom is chronic severe headaches, but you might also have anything from earaches to worn teeth to tingling fingers. Dr. Chung can diagnose and provide TMD treatments for these symptoms. We are proud to utilize the 3D Cone Beam Dental Scanner to assist us in our treatment.
A full mouth rejuvenation will address all issues related to your smile, and will enhance the beauty of your smile as it addresses the health and structure of your bite. Each rejuvenation plan is different. To discuss and learn more about yours, please contact us and set up an initial neuromuscular dentistry consultation. From there, you and Dr. Chung can look further at what needs to be done, in what order, and to what effect. At your consultation, you can meet with Dr. Chung and his talented dentistry team and have all of your cosmetic dentistry questions answered.
The first step in your full mouth rejuvenation would be your initial consultation. We hope you will contact us and we’re confident that if you do, you’ll be pleased with the high level of service we offer. We see only two or three patient per day so that we can give you the detailed attention and care that you deserve.
