Bioesthetic Dentistry Really is the Best

If your smile has been giving you problems lately, it’s time to schedule an appointment with Chittenden Dental. This bioesthetic dentistry practice in Burlington has what it takes to give you the smile that you were intended to be born with.

Your Chewing System Counts

Bioesthetic dentistry means Dr. Mike Morris examines your teeth and gums, but that’s not all. In addition, this Burlington bioesthetic dentist also takes into account your  entire chewing system.

Examining your entire chewing system means that whatever restorative procedures recommended last the long term. In other words, you won’t have to worry about your dental work failing over time.

Restorations and Bioesthetic Dentistry

People with crossbite, over or under bites or those with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) often clench and grind their teeth. All of these issues cause problems for natural teeth, but they also cause issues with restorations.

While your teeth are stronger than your bones, they will not withstand chronic clenching/grinding, also known as bruxism.

Bruxism and Teeth

Bruxism is only caused by one issue at night: Apnea. With that being said, fatigue induced by nighttime apnea that can break normal sleep cycles can cause chronic daytime clenching and grinding.

Your Bioesthetic dentist also explains that certain commonly used prescription medications, such as antipsychotics and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) including fluoxetine, venlafaxine and sertraline could also be the reason for chronic bruxism.

Whatever the reason, Chittenden Dental will get to the root cause before proceeding with cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental veneers and crowns.

Why Bioesthetic Dentistry?

Dr. Morris explains that because your entire chewing system, such as your jaw joints, airway and muscles are examined: your teeth and gums will be better off!

Firstly, they are better off because there won’t be clenching and grinding. Secondly, once the issues are corrected, you will finally have the smile you have always dreamed of having.

Some of the cosmetic and restorative treatments that might be recommended include:

  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Cosmetic Dental Crowns
  • Professional Teeth Whitening
  • Oral Appliance Therapy
  • Dental Bonding
  • Gummy Smile Correction
  • Tooth Colored Fillings
  • Inlays and Onlays
  • Clear Removable Braces
