Do stains, worn teeth, or other cosmetic concerns affect your confidence? If so, a smile makeover performed at our Barre, MA, practice may be the answer. This treatment combines multiple cosmetic procedures to give you a smile that complements your entire appearance. Oral health and the success of a smile makeover are directly related. Dr. Robert Rapisarda will first make certain your smile is healthy and your bite is balanced to ensure long-term satisfaction with your new smile. He will begin by assessing your bite alignment and the structure of your teeth. Next, he can perform your makeover using advanced materials and tools.
The first step of a smile makeover is to ensure that your smile is healthy, aligned, and balanced.
A smile makeover can involve several different procedures. It can be a good option if you wish to address:
Long-lasting cosmetic enhancement is only possible once all oral health issues have been resolved. Dr. Rapisarda will first perform any necessary restorative procedures, such as periodontal treatment or root canal therapy, in order to ensure healthy teeth and gums. He can also address teeth grinding and other issues affecting the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) on either side of the jaw. This can not only improve your oral health, but also protect your restorations and teeth.
Having undergone advanced training at the Las Vegas Institute (LVI), Dr. Rapisarda is experienced in the treatment of bruxism and TMJ Disorder, or the inflammation of the TMJs resulting from conditions such as an imbalanced bite. He can use several different techniques to achieve neuromuscular harmony in your bite, meaning the jaw and surrounding muscles will not have to overcompensate to achieve a balanced bite. First, he will use temporary devices to realign your bite. Next, he will use our advanced K7 Evaluation System to record the muscle activity in your jaw. In conjunction with the K7 System, he will often perform TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) to release tense muscles. In some cases, he may also recommend BOTOX® Medical to achieve the necessary muscle relaxation. Often, he will supply a custom oral appliance to realign your jaw while you sleep.
