Improving Your Oral Health
Your mouth is a highly complex system comprised of several different moving and sensitive parts, such as teeth, gums, your jaw, and inner cheeks. While these parts may seem individual, they are all interconnected. For example, how your lower and upper jaw meet is called an occlusion. If your teeth are not aligned properly, this can result in multiple dental problems, such as reduced bite strength and tooth decay. In some cases, your teeth may require a full mouth reconstruction, which is a treatment designed to remedy any and all issues that may be compromising your dental and holistic well being. By addressing your holistic oral health in a single procedure, Dr. Fotek will be able to restore the beauty and ability to your smile.

Get Your Oral Health in Harmony
When one part of your mouth isn't working well, it can lead to other problems elsewhere in your body. For example, the previously mentioned misalignment of the jaw could easily result in tooth decay. If you leave tooth decay untreated, it will cause additional tooth loss due to the uneven wear on various tissues and because of the destruction of the pulp of your tooth. At the same time, if you have dental caries, it's highly likely you could have a periodontal infection, which leads to bone tissue loss and gum loss. It's important to have regular dental exams to detect these problems as early as possible to reduce the overall damage.
