A substantial number of the patients we treat have come to us because their previous dental work has failed. Whether you need a procedure requiring full mouth reconstruction, or simply correcting crooked or chipped teeth, our Northern Virginia practice serving Fairfax and Arlington Counties will provide you with the outstanding dental care you deserve. If you’re in need of a second opinion or require full mouth rehabilitation, visit our dental office for a consultation with Dr. H. Charles Jelinek.
If you experience persistent pain or discomfort associated with your teeth or jaw, or suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, crooked, chipped, or broken teeth, full mouth reconstruction may be your best treatment option. Before recommending full mouth rehabilitation, Dr. Jelinek will examine your gums and your overall dental health to make sure that you’re a suitable candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Jelinek will then measure your bite alignment before any reconstructive or rehabilitative treatments are done. Once the correct alignment has been measured, Dr. Jelinek will combine cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, based on your unique needs, as part of a full mouth reconstruction plan.
Before undergoing a full mouth reconstruction, or any other dental procedure requiring the investment of your time and money, getting a second opinion is an important step in the pre-evaluation process. Quite often, because of blind trust and lack of foresight, most patients fail to get a second opinion before a major dental procedure, only to be later disappointed with the results. At our Northern Virginia dental practice, we treat patients whose previous dental work has failed. Many of our patients come to our Fairfax and Arlington-area dental office to get a second opinion because of our reputation for being trustworthy and meticulous. Do not make the mistake of negating the importance of a second opinion.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are caused by stress-related oral habits such as teeth clenching and teeth grinding and may result in jaw pain or tenderness, headaches, earaches, and biting or chewing difficulties. Possible causes of TMJ disorder also include accidents resulting in injuries to the jaw or head, diseases of the joint, and malocclusion, which places an abnormal strain on the joints and surrounding tissues.
TMJ treatments in full mouth rehabilitation can take several forms. Initial treatments take the form of symptom management. Gentle physical therapy, which includes heat, massages, muscles exercises, and stretching, are usually recommended first. A soft diet may be indicated, and medications such as analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents prescribed. Some patients may need to undergo behavior modification and psychological counseling in order to relieve the stress associated with temporomandibular disorders.
