Bioesthetic Dentistry a Special Talent

When it comes to complete dentistry a bioesthetic dentist is the only doctor to consider. Bioesthetic dentistry looks at the entire chewing system as well as the teeth and gums.

Additional Training for Bioesthetic Dentistry

Not all Burlington dentists have the training to provide you with this type of dentistry, but Dr. Mike Morris does.

As a bioesthetic dentist in Burlington he understands how the chewing system affects the way teeth come together.

For instance, if your temporomandibular joints are out of alignment your teeth could suffer the consequences from chronic grinding. In addition you could be clenching causing headache, neck and body aches.

Chittenden Dental understands the connection and is qualified to diagnose and treat serious conditions including temporomandibular joint disorder. Most people aren’t aware that jaw issues are directly connected to teeth and gum problems.

According to Dr. Morris if your jaw is popping and you are suffering from chronic headaches it could have something to do with your bite and the way your jaw joints come together.

Bioesthetic Dentistry and Other Issues

In addition to TMJ problems Chittenden Dental also looks for crossbites, overbites and underbites.

All of these issues affect teeth. If you had cosmetic dentistry and weren’t aware of your underbite it could be the reason your veneers didn’t last as long as they should have even with proper care.

If you are scheduling a consultation for cosmetic dentistry your Burlington bioesthetic dentist will examine your entire chewing system. He does this to ensure proper placement if you are considering dental veneers, crowns, implants or any other type of cosmetic dentistry procedure.

Underlying Issues Always Cause Problems

Just like everything else underlying issues will eventually lead to other problems with teeth and gums.

For instance, if you don’t take care of cross or overbites your other teeth will be affected. A good example is crowded teeth. If you have crowded teeth there is a reason behind it.

Your Burlington bioesthetic dentist will get to the root or cause. Once that problem is addressed Dr. Morris will feel comfortable moving forward with any type of restorative or cosmetic dentistry solution.

Fixing Bite Problems

If you follow this Chittenden Dental Blog you will know that Dr. Morris uses a variety of treatments to treat bite and TMJ issues. Some of those could include oral appliance therapy and MAGO therapy.
