Kirill Volynskyi Prosthodontist:
The present-day concept of prosthodontic dentistry primarily implies a comprehensive and multifaceted analysis into functional and aesthetic aspects of dentofacial system.
Thanks to state-of-the-art digital technologies, we enjoy an opportunity to get all the necessary information for further analysis and final restoration planning. A series of photographs is a fundamental procedure preceding absolutely all types of our work. This means that prior to starting the treatment we can perform a digital smile design and develop an ideal reconstruction model meeting all criteria and customized for every patient.
State-of-the-art protocols of dental rehabilitation in the context of Anti-Aging system primarily envisage restoration of the initial vertical dimension undergoing age-related changes in every person. The up-to-date diagnostic methods provide the opportunity to define and register baseline parameter values to be restored as we believe it is our core objective. Once it is achieved we restore your young and cheerful smile.
- Temporomandibular joints.
The most flexible and complex joints in a human body, alike rail-tracks they define trajectories of the lower jaw bone movements.
- Masticatory muscles.
They are the strongest muscles in our body. The finest nervous regulation controls phenomenally well-coordinated activities of lots of muscles driving the lower jaw in various well-grounded movements while chewing, breathing, talking and, believe me, sleeping or, finally, relaxing and resting.
- Teeth and tooth alignment.
Besides the fact that teeth enamel is the strongest tissue of the human body, imagine that the tooth surface is nothing else but a mini “map” of a temporomandibular joint corresponding to precise personal geometry of the lower jaw movements operated by muscles. We would like you to know that the chewing surface of each tooth (!) contains up to 22 functional elements, each being finely and accurately inbuilt into a person’s dento-facial system.
Gnathology is a science that study and logically restore an enamel organ as an absolute element of craniomaxillofacial system harmoniously inbuilt into a human body in general.
Let’s take a closer look on three principal components of the dentofacial system, which a gnathology specialist studies. This is a must for the development of an individual plan for accurate restoration of the patient’s oral cavity in the overwhelming majority of dental treated cases!
It becomes apparent that in the course of restoring the natural harmony of tooth alignment, we, one way or another, inevitably influence the state of chewing muscles and maxillotemporal joints. And, if it is so, we should be extremely delicate in doing so, but at the same time we should act insistently and steadily.
You have just got to know that dentists use the knowledge of gnathology in order to identify parameters of all components comprising the dentition system in minute detail.
We need that, in the first turn, in order to reproduce at maximum accuracy the nature of your teeth, harmony of their interrelations, to achieve well-coordinated work of your maxillary muscles, and let your dentition to live in peace with your body.
When a doctor sees the pre-existing upset in joint operation (crepitus, clicking, discomfort) and muscles (tension, fatigue, pain), then functional analysis should be performed, after that diagnostic and treatment preparation, all pre-existing dysfunctions should be normalized, contact plane between teeth and dental arches should be accurately calculated, and finally, the obtained data should be adapted to your individual anatomic and geometric parameters.
This is the only case when the treatment is well-grounded, logically complete and thus successful.
