PATIENTS WEARING BITE GUARDS Patients wearing bite guards is one of the keys to protecting their dental treatment.

Patients Wearing Bite Guards

Some of our best Dentistry has been delivered to  patients who appreciate our services.

Crowns and bridges are very durable procedures that are delivered with frequency.

They are procedures that have proven to withstand many harmful biting patterns of dental patients.

Patients wearing bite guards protect their dental investments, thus adding additional time the desired treatment will last.

Some reasons for not wearing the bite Guard range from it feeling cumbersome and too bulky.

Or the additional cost of the bite Guard is not affordable at the time treatment is completed.

It becomes very frustrating for patients who grind their teeth at night.

Bruxism Damages Teeth

Night grinding called bruxism, damages teeth.

Bruxism and the clenching of teeth in a stressful manner, damage teeth, crowns and bridges placed to restore their function.

Think of the jaws and teeth as a class 1 lever system which applies tremendous force to teeth.

A class 1 lever can be viewed as the simple nutcracker.

It applies tremendous force to break open the shell of a pecan for example.

Molars in the mouth are designed for heavy grinding of food starting the digestive process.

Loads from bruxism and clenching place additional pressure in the class 1 lever system.

The pressure placed upon the teeth is greatly reduced when a semi-hard substance is placed

between the teeth in the form of a bite Guard.

It is softer than your teeth and reduces harmful forces that fracture  them.

Wearing the Bite Guard

Patients wearing bite guards greatly reduce chance of fracture.

They can be made with the patient’s comfort in mind.

Wear the guard at night or during stressful episodes of life.

All removable appliances should be sanitized when not worn to kill the accumulation of bacteria.

Bacteria causes mouth odor and dental caries.

Patients wearing bite guards improve their oral health and reduce harmful forces.

Teeth decay for several reasons, all of which will diminish your ability to chew certain foods.

Teeth decay for many reasons


In our modern world processed foods only rule the day if healthier

choices are not an option.

Farmer’s markets are available all over America.

Whole food grocers stock organic food items for greater nutrition choices.

You will find sugar in its various forms in many of our large super markets.

Starches and carbohydrates also contain certain types of sugar.

High cavity rates are usually the result of a diet high in sugar content.

Some of our most favorite beverages, soda pop, coffee, baby formula and others will surprise you regarding their

high sugar content.

Patients are informed to wean themselves from drinks with a high sugar content.

To date science has documented the inflammatory processes in our bodies that result from sugar intoxication.

Skin lesions, heart problems, diabetes, yeast and fungal infections, cancer and the disease of the century

Alzhiemers, are some of the major players in the oxidative process that causes havoc in our bodies.

Let’s face it we have a hard time giving up our sweet treats that are capable of killing us.

Our bodies are designed to process certain ranges of sugar consumption.

Make your life an easier one by keeping sugar in its proper perspective.

Enjoy sugary foods in moderation.

Sodas contain phosphoric acid, therefore after consuming, wait a minimum of one hour to brush.

The phosphoric acid breaks down tooth enamel thus softening your teeth.

By waiting one hour to brush the teeth are not as vulnerable to the acid attack from the soda.

Simply rinsing the mouth immediately after ingestion of sugary foods and drinks reduces the risks of the tooth decay


Cancer is fed by the unhealthy consumption of too much sugar.

A great treatment fighter to reduce your chances of cancer is the cessation of sugar ingestion.

When healthcare teams pound this point home, those extra servings of sweet treats can be bypassed with the greatest of ease.

Restoration of the mouth is best viewed through the eyes of those who teach and practice preventative oral medicine.

Oral medicine is best practiced with knowledge teeth decay because of sugary foods.

In fact the entire body is under attack in a state of disease because of excess sugar ingestion.

You can return your body to a state of health drastically cutting back on sugary foods.

The body, your temple for life, will thank you.

Teeth decay because of sugar addiction, that can be treated with drastic reduction in its consumption.

Great smiles are a part of your identity.


Great smiles are the number one expression of your identity.

Cosmetic dentistry is one way to boost our patients self esteem.

Improving the smile also improves the confidence level of an individual.

Teeth that are chipped, discolored, and mis-aligned can be corrected with porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin overlays of porcelain placed on the facial surfaces of your teeth in the smile corridor known as the esthetic zone.

Patients are seen in consultation with dentists looking to improve their overall appearance.

Your smile speaks volumes before you ever utter a word.

People are attracted to a beautiful smile.

Corporate America looks for those who make investments in their personal appearance.

You understand why people invest in themselves to get to the next rung of the corporate ladder.

Seniors in management and those you pursue to sell your goods and services show a high degree of affinity for those who display an air of confidence in their nonverbal communication.

Take your confidence levels through the roof displaying great smiles to the world.

Enter your dental office one day and 7 – 14 days later you are able to flaunt your new look, a smile designed by you and your dentist.

Patients clip pictures out of magazines to show dentists the smile of their dreams.

The picture may give an idea of what you desire but not all shapes and sizes of teeth fit your personal profile.

A very narrow face will not accommodate wide tooth moulds and shapes.

Ovoid facial shapes require ovoid type tooth contours.

You can’t always place your favorite movie star’s smile in your own profile but you can generate similar energy by changing the color and adding a degree of sex appeal.

Patients are surprised with good planning by the dental team, what can be achieved through cosmetic dentistry.

Great anticipation met with a quality product delivered by the dental team is one of the greatest feelings shared by both the patient and the dentist.

After the bonding process has secured the new crowns or porcelain veneers to the teeth, don’t forget to learn how to maintain your new smile.

The best dentistry is preventative dentistry where the patient is seen periodically to maintain what has been placed as a major improvement.

Body enhancements require proper management for the overall well being of the patient.

Healthcare providers see personality changes in the best of patients that require changes in the body.

Dentistry can provide great smiles when desired, and help patients  adjust to their new body enhancement.
