Bite Reclamation...what to expect:
Anesthesia is usually part of the bite reclamation procedure. After it’s administered, the dentist adds fillings to the teeth in question, restoring them to a proper shape and length that leaves your bite complete.
This can sometimes be accomplished in a single session, but usually requires multiple visits to complete. Recovery will take some time, up to a few weeks, but proper dental hygiene (as directed) and the use of antibacterial mouthwash are critical to maintain throughout the process.
