Reconstructive Dentistry with a Gneuromuscular Dentistry (GNM) Approach
Gneuromuscular Dentistry goes beyond traditional concepts and understandings of neuromuscular dentistry—the area of dentistry that focuses on aligning your jaw. Gnathologics studies the jaw, a crucial element that is not included in traditional neuromuscular concepts. When studied together, they have a strong focus on:
- Body alignment
- Accurate occlusion
- Optimal mandibular function
With a focus on these three areas, the jaw will have optimal function and form. The concept also has an emphasis on the quality of function and resting position to prevent or treat Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders. The treatment will establish correct tongue posture, correct swallowing, and breathing through the mouth. This can correct breathing problems such as sleep apnea, speech issues as well as make cosmetic improvements.
When we provide our patients with reconstructive treatments, we look at more than just replacing or restoring your teeth. We look at the way your jaw functions, how it’s aligned, whether or not your airways is obstructed and if your tongue posture is correct. Using advanced dental technology, we’re able to relax your jaw to find its optimal resting position and then design your reconstructive procedures around it.
Without a Geneuromuscular Dentistry approach with your reconstructive procedures, you may continue to live with TMJ, sleep apnea or other related problems for the rest of your life. By addressing all of your problems at once, you’re able to achieve a brand new smile, improve facial aesthetics and live a healthier life.
Unlike other dental practices where you have to visit multiple offices to complete the full mouth reconstruction procedure, Dr. Kendall at Excellence in Dentistry are experts in all phases of a full mouth reconstruction, ensuring you can have your dental care done at one place in Anchorage, Alaska.

How is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Good for You?
A time comes in everyone’s life when they might need a full mouth reconstruction. Not only does it restore the health of the treated tooth, it can also save your other teeth as well. If you have a cavity and don’t get it treated, it will lead to a serious infection that can ultimately result in you losing a tooth or more if it gets worse. With our all tooth-colored materials, Dr. Kendall will ensure the filling matches the look of your teeth for excellent oral aesthetics.
Other than this, Porcelain Veneers and Dental Crowns can provide your teeth extra protection and strength, preventing them from getting damaged or broken. Root canal treatment removes the pain producing infection and allows you to keep a now healthy tooth. It also prevents the spread of infection from the tooth to other teeth, your sinuses, your heart, or your brain.
We understand that many people who need full mouth reconstruction have avoided dental work in the past due to anxiety. That’s why we offer a full range of sedation dentistry options. From drug-free relaxation dentistry with NuCalm to heavy IV sedation, we can find an option that will allow you to overcome your anxiety and get the reconstruction procedures that you need.
