What is Wellness Dentistry?
There is a strong connection between the health of your mouth and your overall well being. Our mission is to make sure that no problem associated with your mouth is affecting your general health in a negative way. We want you to understand and appreciate how your oral condition positively or negatively affects your overall health.
What is the connection between oral health and overall well-being?
Current science tells us that the primary connection is inflammation. Generalized inflammation (like that seen in gum disease) is believed to be a prominent cause of cardiovascular problems, specifically arterial disease
How does Maestro Dental Wellness work to help me be healthier?
Through a personalized assessment of your risk factors to oral disease and of other lifestyle choices we are better able to advise you on how to reduce inflammation and disease manifestation in your body and help you to improve your health.
Exactly what is it that you'll assess for me?
Our easy to understand surveys and and our exam process determines your risk for disease and a personalized assessment in seven key areas:
- Gum Disease
- Biocorrosion (acid erosion of tooth structure)
- Bite Disease
- Oral Cancer
- Sleep Disordered Breathing and Sleep Apnea
- Appearance related issues
Why is it that other dental practices do not work this way?
That is a difficult question to answer. We can say that our patients prefer this personalized approach to prevention and sustaining health versus the more traditional model of dental care which it to fix what hurts or is already broken and not functioning.
