Caring For Patients
We understand that many dental problems aren’t just isolated to the mouth. Reviewing your overall health history allows our highly-trained professionals to identify the causes of many dental problems that may have originated in other areas of the body.
Through routine screenings, preventive maintenance, and nutritional counseling, we are able to ensure the mouth and body work together. Plus, you’ll feel great about the thoroughness of the exams. Furthermore, we offer a comprehensive list of preventive and cosmetic dental treatments for your entire family — from children to seniors!
If you suffer from headaches or popping, clicking jaws, we have advanced, computerized jaw tracking instruments to assist in realigning your bite to a more comfortable position. And snore guards, specifically designed to work independently or in conjunction with other anti-snoring devices, to help give you a good nights’ sleep.
With our advanced dental procedures, we can make your visit to our office enjoyable and relatively pain-free!
Restorative and Aesthetic Treatment
Recessing gum line, yellow or oddly-shaped teeth, dark gray lines around your caps, many of these conditions cannot be repaired by over the counter products. With bonding, bleaching, enamel re-contouring, veneers and orthodontics; we offer a wide range of professional cosmetic improvements and reconstructions to make you look as good as you feel!
With a full range of tooth repair and reconstruction resources available, there is no reason for our patients to suffer the pain and misery of damaged teeth. Plus, we only use bio-safe, ADA-approved restoration materials to keep your teeth and body healthy for years to come!
Clinical awareness and science show us that what happens in the mouth is reflected in the body, and what happens in the body is reflected in the mouth. The complex, dynamic relationships of oral and systemic health within the context of the whole person are inseparable.
Biological dentistry unites the best clinical practices and technologies of Western dental medicine with a wide array of practices beyond its horizon.
While it may be impossible to construct an authoritative list of protocols followed by the “typical” biological office, all share a common paradigm: treating causes of symptoms rather than symptoms toward the goal of restoring and sustaining health.
Biologic DDS also share a deep and constant belief in the Hippocratic dictate. First, do no harm. Biological dentistry is conservative dentistry. The aim is to be minimally invasive yet appropriately active.
