- Full mouth restoration— If you have lost your teeth or have tooth trauma, Dr. Luffey can provide restorative dental treatments, including full mouth reconstruction. A full mouth reconstruction restores every tooth in your mouth and corrects gum disease to restore health to your teeth and jaw.
- Treatment for snoring & sleep apnea—Oral appliances treat snoring and symptoms of sleep apnea. Your oral appliance can help keep your jaw in the right position to prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat, keeping the airway open during sleep.
- TMJ treatment for pain & misalignment—Treatment for TMJ pain often includes the use of an orthotic appliance to improve and maintain a comfortable, balanced bite.
- Neuromuscular dentistry—For maximum functioning of your jaw and teeth, your neck, back head and spine must be aligned. If you are out of alignment, it could have a negative affect on your teeth. Neuromuscular dentistry seeks the optimal resting alignment of your teeth and jaw.
Malocclusion is another term used to describe a misaligned bite. Neuromuscular dentistry treats symptoms like headaches, facial discomfort, shoulder and neck pain by realigning your teeth and jaw, reducing your pain and improving your quality of life.
