Our goal is to first determine our patient’s dental needs and concerns. Then we will work up and present them with a couple of treatment options. The patient can then decide which option is most suitable for them. Some complex cases involve detailed treatment plans. They can involve other specialists like oral surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, pedodontists, endodontists, etc.

Why is high-quality dentistry an excellent investment?
Your smile prompts a reaction from others. Your conscious or subliminal response to this reaction has consequences. It may have a negative impact on your psyche if you are doubtful about your own appearance and ability to make a positive impression on others. High levels of confidence and self-esteem are essential for social interaction.
Gum disease and tooth decay may cause other diseases. Conversely, other diseases may lead to gum disease and tooth decay.
Our mouths are loaded with a collection of bacteria and viruses. The bacterium Streptococcus mutans, can proliferate in the presence of food residues and cause tooth decay. Gum disease is caused by other bacteria. A high accumulation of diverse viruses and bacteria in your mouth may also be the cause of maladies in other parts of the body. If they enter the circulatory system they can affect the valves of the heart. Dementia is also associated with gingivitis or gum disease. Those patients with pre-existing diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes are more likely to contract gum disease (Webmd.com).
Oral chewing and speech function is also important
Of course, a proper bite is an essential function of daily living. Thus, healthy teeth and gums can prevent a variety of other diseases and are important for living a long life. Thus, oral health is an investment in your self-esteem, your appearance, your comfort, and your health.
