Types of Dental Rehabilitation
There are two basic types of dental rehabilitation surgery:
Cosmetic Surgery: This form of full mouth rehabilitation surgery aims to restore the appearance of the teeth. Crooked teeth are repaired, and crowns, fillings, and grafts are provided to ensure that the teeth are strong and look healthy. Tooth whitening may also be a part of cosmetic full mouth rehabilitation.
Neuromuscular Surgery: This type of full mouth rehabilitation primarily addresses jaw alignment to correct TMJ. If the positioning of the teeth or the gums affects the appearance of the jaw, neuromuscular surgery can be used to reposition the jaw such that the outward appearance is aesthetically pleasing and robust.
