Orthotic device is worn in patient’s mouth for a period of time to reposition the improper jaw to the correct position. This device could either be removed or fixed depending on the patients needs but in general they are not noticeable.
Once bite is corrected using orthotic device, restorations may be applied which includes porcelain veneers, bonding, crowns or onlays. Restorations are made after taking a mold of teeth having crowns or veneers, etc., made in the lab. Once they are made the patient returns to the office and the restorations are applied to the teeth again.
This may take few to several visits depending on the restoration types needed.
