Practice Philosophy

The primary objective of this office is the preservation of the natural dentition in comfort, health and beauty for life.

There are two main causes of tooth loss: tooth decay and periodontal disease. Some of the secondary causes of tooth loss are: previous tooth loss adding stress to the remaining teeth, an imbalanced bite, and various systemic conditions. Two other important considerations are facial pain and esthetics. We will consider all these conditions. The most important fact to remember is that in most cases, BOTH DECAY AND PERIODONTAL DISEASE CAN BE PREVENTED.

You are here either because you are in pain, you are aware of some problem, or because you want to have a routine “clean and check” appointment. If you are in pain, that will be treated. In either of the latter two instances a thorough examination will be done, and as indicated, further x-rays and diagnostics procedures will be recommended. Your treatment may also be “phased” into priorities; i.e., that treatment which is necessary just to maintain your mouth without further deterioration (Phase I), a stage of rebuilding procedures (Phase II), and final approaches to your own level of optimum health (Phase III). If you ever have any questions concerning your treatment, please do not hesitate to ask. No treatment will be undertaken until WE agree on a course of action.

Our pledge to you is the best dentistry of which we are capable, and if you want to keep your teeth, to help you build an effective prevention program. Prevention is up to you, and with our help you can learn to maintain your mouth in good health for a lifetime.
