Bioesthetic Dentistry

Description

Bioesthetic Dentistry is based on natural biologic form and works by arranging the teeth to work together with the alignment of the jaw and facial muscles.

The power of Bioesthetic Dentistry is that its principles and techniques can be universally applied by all dental disciplines to all dental system problems.

For years it was thought that wear and deterioration of adult teeth was part of the aging process and unavoidable. However, the bioesthetic philosophy has proved this notion to be misleading.

Today, Bioesthetic Dentistry provides patients with the best of both worlds, beautiful natural smiles, and healthy teeth that can last a lifetime.

Dentists know that chewing is a learned activity. However, patients with worn down teeth can develop dysfunctional chewing and biting patterns. Rather than an effective vertical cutting motion for chewing food, they often engage in unhealthy horizontal chewing strokes.

Our office typically does x-ray examinations of the jaw joints, facial bones, cervical vertebrae, sinuses and airway; take photographs of the teeth, face and smile; and check jaw alignment with special Panadent instruments. These, enables us to determine whether the patient’s jaw joints are properly aligned in their sockets and how to correct any “chewing disharmony” that is found. If the teeth are severely crooked, an orthodontist may be consulted.

We will help you select the form of treatment that will restore your oral and physical health, so you can be healthy for a lifetime.
