Boca Dental – Corrective Dentistry
Restoring Smiles to Last a Lifetime
Corrective dentistry is not a dental specialty; it refers to the ability of a dental practitioner to apply oral diagnosis (dental diagnosis), while considering the overall health of a patient, in order to formulate a successful dental treatment plans in today’s world of complex medical conditions and medications. It is also a term that describes the character Great Boca Smiles.
Corrective Dentistry Solves Many Long Term Dental Problems
The combination of a patient’s medical health and oral health has a big influence on the condition of the teeth and gums, for example:
Patients who are continually fighting gum disease and gum recession (where the gums are pulling away from the teeth and exposing root surfaces) may be unaware that simple procedures, like Invisalign clear braces, can relieve crowded teeth or a bad bite that can create these problems.
The upward trend of medications that cause dry mouth, which leads to tooth decay. People are unaware that there are available products that can help prevent new decay.
Diseases that are difficult to diagnose, like Sjogrens Syndrome, also cause problems resulting from severe dry mouth as well as those that have undergone radiation treatment that have similar problems.
While a Cosmetic Dentist may only view the aesthetic value of patients’ teeth (how the teeth look) a Corrective Dentist will investigate why the teeth ended up in the current condition and how they can be restored to last a lifetime. Dr. Markowitz enjoys seeing that ray of hope in a new patient’s eyes during their first visit when they say “My previous Dentist never told me that this has been causing my problems”. That’s when they know that they are in the right place.
