Bioesthetic Dentistry a Better Experience

For a better dental experience: you can’t go past Chittenden Dental! This family practice in Burlington offers everything you and your family need for healthy teeth and gums with a little bit extra. That extra is bioesthetic dentistry.

Bioesthetic Dentistry in Burlington

Dr. Mike Morris is a bioesthetic dentist, so you won’t have to worry about veneers or crowns being placed on teeth that aren’t quite ready for dental restorations.

If you follow this dental blog you’ll recall that bioesthetic dentistry examines the chewing system in its entirety: This provides you and your dental team with a comprehensive evaluation.

At Chittenden Dental, we use cutting edge 3D imaging (CBCT) technology to fully evaluate your entire chewing system.  This consists of your airway, nerves, muscles, your tongue and soft palate, mouth, lips, bite, jaw joints, bones, and of course your teeth and gums.

Just like an orchestra, all of these instruments need to work together in sync and “In concert,” so you can enjoy life without the problems causing tooth wear. It’s all about balance and harmony when it comes to your chewing system.

How It Works

Your Burlington bioesthetic dentist approaches your treatment by searching for the cause of the problem. This means treating your whole system not just one tooth at a time.

For instance, if you have jaw pain and tooth wear, Dr. Mike looks for the cause of the issue. This means finding out why you grind you teeth and/or why you have a cross or over bite.

Once the team from Chittenden Dental has figured out what has been causing your issues, a customized treatment plan with many options is designed to give choices on how you can achieve a healthy and beautiful smile that works for you.

Fixing the whole system means restoring your chewing system. This means that your entire mouth will be working in unison or, “In concert.”

Cosmetic and Bioesthetic Dentistry

When your chewing system is healthy, it is both in form and function: You and Dr. Morris will discuss your cosmetic dentistry options which could include porcelain veneers, bonding, orthodontics like Invisalign and many other options custom tailored to you.

Porcelain veneers need a healthy chewing system if they are to live a full life. If you have a temporomandibular joint problem or a bite issue, your veneers will NOT stand the test of time.

Your teeth themselves don’t handle chronic grinding very well, so you can only imagine what grinding, known as bruxism, will do to your porcelain veneers and other dental restorations if not addressed first!

The best way to prevent problematic restorations, which cost more time, problems and money in the long run is to schedule an appointment with Chittenden Dental. Doing so will give you a lifetime healthy smile!
