What is good value as it pertains to money and good dental health? What is it worth to chew with your natural teeth? To have dentures that chew or stay put? To have teeth that do not hurt or cut your cheek or tongue? To Smile and not be self conscious? To not have bad breath or gum infection? To Smile and feel good? Only You Know the answers to these Questions, not your family members or friends,YOU. Dentistry can be a great value. A old farmer said to me, “You get what you don’t pay for”.

What are the costs? First there is time, it takes time to care for your teeth and gums. Time with the tooth brush, oral irrigator, tooth pick or dental floss. Time with the dental hygienist to maintain health gums and dentist to repair decayed, broken or missing teeth. And if you thought life was fair, you were wrong, some people need to spend more time to keep their mouth healthy than others. Second it can take money, if you are not genetically blessed or do not spend enough time.

Mike, age 45, has multiple broken teeth and excessive wear on all of his teeth. His goal is to stop breaking teeth and keep his teeth for the rest of his life. My goal for Mike is to keep him out of the dentist’s chair.

Solutions for Mike:

1) Achieve proper jaw position and muscle comfort, and restore his mouth in the best position.

2) Restore front teeth to proper length so they can do their job of protecting the back teeth.

3) restore with crowns the broken back teeth so they are strong and will not break again.

4) Wear a Night Guard while sleeping to protect against future wear.

Mac was very disappointed and discouraged his front bridge was loose and decayed on one of the two supporting teeth. He had lost two of his front teeth on the 2 yard line of the football field at age 18. He had hoped the bridge would out live him. I explained to him 52 years of service was excellent!

His solutions:

1) new bridge

2) Cut off loose portion of bridge and place dental implants and crowns for the missing teeth

3) remove fixed bridge and replace teeth with a removable partial denture.

Mac decided to get a new bridge since the first one had lasted so long and functioned so well.

This last set has really gotten loose, the upper drops down frequently when eating or laughing, the lower denture floats around and does not chew well. Goal: Tom wants solid teeth, like when he was 25. Solution: Dental Implants, 8 on the upper jaw and 5 on the lower jaw, which support new teeth anchored in bone.

Jean was gently told by her best friend that she has bad breath. Her physician suggested she might have Gum Disease and she should have a thorough gum exam by a dentist. She did and was Diagnosed with Advanced Gum Disease. Not all was lost: Jean did 3 things: 1. Had gum therapy preformed, 2. Improved her home-care routine, 3. Had her bite evened out and, rough, broken fillings and teeth restored. Her gums returned to health, no teeth lost and no more bad breath. Success!

Eva wanted a permanent, pleasant and painless solution to her dark and crooked teeth. A complete examination of tooth structure and gum tissue found Eva to be healthy. Dental Solutions: Option 1. Braces or Invisalyn to straighten her teeth, following up with tooth bleaching. Bleaching is not permanent, and a straightening did not seem pleasant to Eva. Option 2. Lumineers, porcelain veneers that can be created without shots or pain, very little or no drilling and the custom light color is permanent and the porcelain is very strong and durable. Eva decided that Lumineers would be the permanent, pleasant, painless solution for her. (614) 775-9300 or (740)427-2929
