The Problem with Traditional Dentistry
All dental problems start off small. A tiny speck of plaque around the gums; a minuscule fracture on the surface of the tooth; a nearly-undetectable cavity. However, if left untreated, the problem grows over time, resulting in a much bigger problem (root canal, extraction, crown). The reactionary approach of traditional dentistry never actually gets you healthy – it only maintains the status quo – a mouth full of small problems, ready to turn into big ones at a moment’s notice. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way.
We are here to serve our patients. We will listen and provide guidance to help you reach your goals.
The mouth is not a separate compartment from the body. The same blood that flows through your teeth and gums also travels to the rest of your body including your heart and other organs. The body functions as a whole complete system in a holistic manner. Dental disease has an impact on one’s systemic health. The mouth can be viewed as a window to the health of the whole body!
Good Health Starts In the Mouth – 3 Goals
- Infection-Free Gum Tissue and Bone – Periodontal disease causes tooth loss, and is linked with heart disease (the same bacteria has been found in both sites).
Solution: Brush, Floss, Regular Dental Cleanings, individualized coaching for best home care practices.
- No Cracks, Decay or Openings In Teeth – These fractures allow bacteria to invade the tooth pulp, which threatens the tooth.
Solution: Seal the Teeth
- Separation: Teeth Should Not Touch While Sleeping – Clenching and grinding are a common cause of tooth damage.
Solution: A simple sleeping appliance.
Benefits of the Wellness Model:
- Less dental treatment over your lifetime
- Avoidance of extreme treatments like extractions and root canals
- Better overall health
- Less financial burden
Example: Better Dental Treatment Options
Typically, when a tooth is broken, a crown is placed. Yet, most dentists know that crowns are often an overly aggressive treatment for small cracks. We want you to know that you do have a choice: new technologies in bonding, known as “Maximized Adhesive Dentistry” allow us to fix broken teeth in a less invasive way. With techniques like this, we are able to preserve the tooth structure and protect the pulp in just one visit.
As Hippocrates, the Greek physician, said “Preventing disease is preferable to waiting for disease to happen”.
