The death of Single tooth Dentistry!

There was a day and time, long long ago, when dentists were instructed to look at teeth individually and to treat that tooth according to its needs and conditions.  I was one of those students and that was what my very able and capable masters in Dental School thought me….

 

That was all good and dandy until I started practicing and realized that teeth are often related to one another almost like members of a family.  Now fast forward 10 years later when I started taking Neuromuscular Dentistry classes at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and my entire perspective towards dentistry changed!  The more and more classes I took, the more I started to understand that we are really connected from head to toe.  I began to realize that the concept of looking at dentition as individual beings is such a mistake.  I saw that teeth need to be considered as part of the family of teeth and therefore treated as such.  I learned that the TMJ is the central focus of so much that can go wrong with the body and I learned that there was so much I still needed to learn.

I continued to study TMJ, facial pain, jaw pain, clicking and popping of the jaw joint, ear aches, headaches, neck aches and bodily dysfunction.  I was amazed to see the potential that dentistry had and has in the overall well being of a patient.  The study of TMJ soon became my life’s passion because I was no longer a single tooth dentist, but rather a comprehensive dentist that was able to make a true difference in a patient’s life.

 

I am still amazed to this day when I see the results that Neuromuscular Dentistry and the Orthosis or Jaw Repositioning appliance can have for a patient.  It is my honor and pleasure to be of assistance to my patients.  I am so thankful for the knowledge I have gained and happy to share with my patients.
