Phase 2 of treatment was reconstructing Peter’s teeth to his ideal bite so that the use of the orthotic would no longer be necessary. Every tooth was prepared for a ceramic crown, removing any decay or fractures that were present, and fitted with temporary crowns while the impressions of Peter’s teeth and bite were sent to the prestigious Aurum Dental Laboratory which is known for their quality and excellence. The ceramic crowns were individually crafted to not only look great but to also be functional and in the correct bite.
Once the lab finished fabrication of the crowns, Dr. Adler removed the temporaries and cemented on the permanent crowns. Peter’s treatment was conducted under the supervision of the esteemed Las Vegas Institute (LVI) where Dr. Adler was trained in the most advanced techniques of neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry. Peter’s results are amazing and he is thrilled with how he looks and feels. His smile is now balanced, teeth look great, and his jaw is comfortable. He said that he is more confident and the look of his entire face has changed. He looks more youthful now that the atrophy on one side of his face is gone. Another change that Peter noticed was that he stopped biting his nails since his treatment started. Peter was a habitual nail biter most of his life, since treatment Peter has completely stopped chewing on his nails and cuticles. He believed it is because his bite changed and so it is no longer as easy to bite on his nails and also because he was using his figures as a subconscious crutch for his jaw that is no longer needed with his new bite. There is no question that Peter’s smile looks great and has greatly improved his life.
