TMJ/Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Dr.Kafayi has had extensive training in correcting occlusion (bite) problems in patients with grinding/clenching issues. He is one of the very few to use pantograph. A pantograph, or a fully adjustable articulator is a device, which is used to mimic or simulate the movement of lower jaw in relation to the temporamandibular joint (TMJ). As a result all restorations are completed in the most exact way possible. Dr.Kafayi is well versed/trained to use gold and different types of porcelain restorations. Every patient, their bite and needs are different, requiring different techniques and materials. Over the years he has helped many patients with TMJ complications. Pictures below employ the use of pantograph, gold posterior (back) teeth, and 3 implants.
