Full Mouth Reconstruction: Kathy's Full Mouth Reconstruction
Having suffered with TMJ since 1983, it was an absolute miracle that I finally found a dentist who really knew how to treat it. I actually went to the Piper Clinic to see about jaw surgery. Thankfully I didn't do it because there were no guarantees that a $27,000 procedure would work! Thinking I had an ear infection, I went to my ENT, Dr. Farr. He determined that I didn't have one and said he believed it was my jaw causing the problem; and referred me to Dr. Motlagh, a dentist! After her initial consult, she recommended we start out with an appliance to be worn on top of my lower teeth to correct my jaw position. It was definitely a help and decreased the pain, when I used it. Then I lost it! I have lost a number of them over the years. During the year, the stress of losing my husband had me grinding much more. Finally I went into Dr. Motlagh's office and told her I was ready to look into a full mouth restoration. My teeth had been getting shorter over the years due to too many bite corrections and the grinding. We began with the preparation of the teeth in one 8 hour session, followed by impressions and finally a complete set of temporaries. Dr. Motlagh had me come in for periodic adjustments to ensure a proper bite. Approximately 3 months later my "new" teeth were ready and put in place with another 8 hour session. My teeth are not only gorgeous, but my bite is correct, the pain has dramatically improved. Dr. Motlagh has the latest state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and she used the neuromusculartreatments to relax my jaw to find the correct positioning . Her computer actually tracked the movement and directions my jaw makes when opening and closing my mouth. And she explained everything to me as she went along. I highly recommend Dr. Motlagh and her very knowledgeable and professional (and friendly) staff. They work together cohesively, and flawlessly in every aspect of dentistry. She has a passion for her work and is very focused on finding the cause, not just treating the symptom! And she is very interested in helping young people earlier in their lives so they don't have to go through what I did for 35 years!
