The Problem with Traditional Dentistry
All dental problems start off small. A tiny speck of plaque around the gums; a miniscule fracture on the surface of the tooth; a nearly-indetectable cavity. However, if left untreated, the problem grows over time, resulting in a much bigger problem (root canal, extraction, crown). The reactionary approach of traditional dentistry never actually gets you healthy – it only maintains the status quo – a mouth full of small problems, ready to turn into big ones at a moment’s notice. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Patient-Centered Dental Care
At Schwanekamp Dentistry, the patient is in charge – not us, not the insurance company. We are here to listen and to give you guidance based on your goals.
Traditional dentistry revolved around reactions – responding to problems and emergencies that were likely preventable. By contrast, everything we do in our office, from mercury-free fillings to minimally invasive bonding, is focused on getting your mouth healthy so that you won’t have these emergencies, and can avoid excessive, expensive dental treatments.
Good Health Starts In the Mouth – 3 Goals
- Infection-Free Gum Tissue and Bones – Periodontal disease causes tooth loss, and is linked with heart disease (the same bacteria has been found in both sites).
Solution: Brush, Floss & Regular Dental Cleanings
- No Cracks, Decay or Openings In Teeth – These fractures allow bacteria to invade the tooth pulp, which threatens the tooth.
Solution: Seal the Teeth
- Separation: Teeth Should Not Touch While Sleeping – Clenching and grinding are a common cause of tooth damage.
Solution: A simple sleeping appliance.
Benefits of the Wellness Model:
- Less dental treatment over your lifetime
- Avoidance of extreme treatments like extractions and root canals
- Better overall health
- Less expense in the long run
- Good nutritional options for life
So let us be your dental coach – not just your doctor or teacher, but a real coach that will stand by you through the years to lessen the financial and mental stress that too often accompany the average dental story.
Example: Better Dental Treatment Options
Typically, when a tooth is broken, a crown is placed. Yet, most dentists know that crowns are often an overly aggressive treatment for small cracks. We want you to know that you do have a choice: new technologies in bonding, known as “Maximized Adhesive Dentistry” allow us to fix broken teeth in a less invasive way. With techniques like this, we are able to preserve the tooth structure and protect the pulp in just one visit.
As Hippocrates, the Greek physician, said “Preventing disease is preferable to waiting for disease to happen”.
Whatever state you think your oral health is in, there is a plan and a solution for you. We are ready to help you create a personalized plan for a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles! Please call us at Cheektowaga Office Phone Number 716-632-9410.
