Escape The Dental Cycle – Achieve STABILITY

The mighty OAK is a great analogy to you, the mighty HUMAN.

Both the oak and you need stability to grow strong and live long. Here is how the oak tree does it:

Oak trees have a strong roots system that nourishes and supports the tree.

In human beings we need a strong root system to nourish and maintain the body as well. Over the past 13 years I have developed a 5 root stability program that allows you to become the strongest and healthiest “you” that you can be. Each one of these 5 roots is essential to helping you escape the dental cycle and even more importantly, live a healthy long life. At Ideal Dentistry we treat each patient according to this stability program helping them ensure their dentistry lasts longer and they live healthy, productive lives.

Here are the 5 roots of the Stability Program:

Satisfy all the requirements in the above 5 categories and you too can ensure your mouth is healthy.

To learn the details of each root just become a patient of Ideal Dentistry and take the first step towards dental peace.

Smile, it’s natural.

Cosmetic Dentistry: CASE STUDY – Wearing Out Your Teeth

Last week a new patient came to my office seeking a second opinion on 4 front veneers that were done. Her concern was that they did not match (too white/opaque) and did not look real.   Well, she was right, the veneers did not look real, and they were cemented with opaque white cement, blocking out all light and creating a white-out like tooth.  The sad thing was, these 4 front teeth were the least of her problems…

DISCLAIMER: This is NOT my dentistry!

After doing a complete exam, radiography’s, digital photos and a tooth by tooth analysis it became apparent that she has almost completely worn out her teeth.  Bone loss was present on all teeth, pointing towards an advanced stage of gum disease.  Soon she could loose all her teeth, and the aesthetics of her 4 front teeth would not matter…very sad.

Normal tooth wear usually results in us wearing out our teeth in our early to mid 50’s.  The enamel, the strong outside layer of our teeth, will be worn through and the soft dentin, the underlying layer, wear out 7 times as fast.  This results in quick loss of tooth structure and event loss of function and esthetics.  Who wants to go through that?  You won’t be able to chew very well, and your smile will be anything but good looking.

Living a long and healthy life is everyone’s goal.  Once we retire we want to do all the things we could not do before.  That will not be the time to spend a lot of time and money on your teeth.  At that point you want to live your life to its fullest!

So, here at Ideal Dentistry I rebuild smiles and mouths every single day.  I do not put blinders on and focus on only your 4 front teeth.  I am a mouth “doctor”, not a tooth mechanic.  This means it is my duty to help you live a long and healthy life, focusing on how your teeth relate to that.  Being able to chew and smile is something we take for granted until it goes away.

Rebuilding a smile is difficult and requires experience.  Smile “rejuvenation” is something I enjoy and have been doing for many years.  I combine aesthetics and function with every case, making sure you do not run into the same trouble that this patient did.  You can have a beautiful lasting smile, it is completely up to you.
