What is better for your smile, to get one filling this week, another filling placed 6 months from today, and a new crown at the end of the year? Or is it better to choose comprehensive dentistry and get all your dental needs taken care of all at once?
Learn what comprehensive dentistry is and how it makes your dental visits easier, faster, and more affordable.
What is Comprehensive Dentistry?
If you have been fixing the same dental problems since childhood with no apparent reason as to why the same problems keep showing up, then you need to revisit your approach to dentistry.
Traditionally, the only time people would go to the dentist is when they had a toothache or a dental related accident requiring some restorative work.
In our modern world, a comprehensive dentist’s job is to help keep your smile healthy, beautiful, and functional today and for as long as you live.
When issues with your smile do arise due to normal wear-and-tear or accidents, a comprehensive dentist’s job is similar: to make sure your oral health is restored to its optimal state and that it will remain that way for years to come.
So by paying attention, asking questions, and applying the suggestions that your comprehensive dentist provides during your regular cleanings and checkups, you will be making sure your smile remains healthy now as well as preventing future problems from ever occurring.
Comprehensive Dentistry Differs From Traditional Dentistry
Using a holistic view of dentistry, your comprehensive dentist in Tukwila, WA will look at the whole person, not just your teeth to determine what solution is best for your unique smile and lifestyle.
To illustrate: instead of fixing one tooth at a time, drilling-n-filling to repair cavities that have appeared over the years due to unhealthy habits and neglect, a comprehensive dentist focuses on educating and preventing caries from growing, thus making sure that section or quadrant of your mouth is healthy, beautiful, and functional.
With their complete focus and training, your comprehensive dentist will examine the height, integrity, alignment, and esthetic appearance of each quadrant of your mouth. They will then compare this to your goals, eating habits, and talk about options that will work for you.
This advanced comprehensive (or holistic) approach to oral health guarantees your smile to be:
- Beautiful: aesthetically harmonious, enhancing the appearance of your eyes, nose, and lips.
- Functional and durable: with a properly aligned bite and non-metal restorations where needed, your smile will pass the test of time without breaking and without causing migraines or pain in your jaw and neck.
- Biologically healthy: with a healthy smile, come a healthy body, mind, heart, digestive system, and reproductive organs.
