Prevention versus Repair

dental flossTraditional dental practices follow a model of checking and cleaning teeth and recommending treatments to fix or replace them to improve their appearance. This approach locks patients into an uncomfortable (and expensive) cycle of break and repair. rather than anticipate and prevent.

Early diagnose of the causes of dental problems, such as decay, gum disease, bite problems, TMJ, missing teeth, head and neck pain and tooth wear can address the causes of problems, rather than just treating their consequences. This is whole-health dentistry, and it can help patients to escape the break and repair cycle.

People make good health choices if given the knowledge and understanding of their situations. Time spent understanding the results of a thorough dental evaluation leads to the best outcomes for patients, because it results in minimal dental care in their lifetime.
