We are a full family dental practice doing decathalon diagnosis and treatment. This means when we see a patient, we do a full diagnosis of the head, neck and full mouth examination to determine what is the best breathing, speaking and chewing bite. We cater to all ages from young children to the elderly. Our staff is highly trained in all areas of dentistry including but not limited to Periodontics(treating of gum disease, gingivitis), Endodontics (root canals), cosmetic dentistry (Veneers, crowns and bridges), orthodontics and also dentures. Our goal is your overall health not just your teeth. As Sir William Osler pointed out " The mouth is the mirror to all disease".
Why Did We Choose The Name Dolphin Dentistry?
Because Dolphins Are Always Smiling!
We have developed a diagnostic system called
"Top Planning For A Winning Smile"
Do you have a tooth infection or abscess - many can be silent.
Do you have decay that is undected?
Are you clenching or grinding your teeth at night?
Do you have tooth sensitivity?
Do you know the lastest methods to do good homecare?
Has your jaw and face grown as well as your genetic blue says it should?
The end results of good orthodontics:
A) Better breathing and sleeping
B) Better muscles
C) Better jaw Joint
D) Straighter teeth that support A, B and C
The key concept is to remember gum disease is a communicable disease driven by many different bacteria (different then the ones that cause tooth decay!)
Gum infections are very dangerous and very wide spread. They can be communicated by direct contact, (kissing)
Again, remember gum infections get into the bloodstream. Thus they too are also whole body infections.
