Calabasas Functional Dentistry

Our
office has refined our philosophy of care, and what we believe our
mission to be. We have transitioned from repair-oriented dentistry to
the philosophy of ideal optimal health and wellness. We want to develop
better relationships with our patients, so that we can personalize care
to the unique needs, wants and values of each individual.

In
years past, we spent most of our time patching, scraping, drilling, and
filling. Although we provided good repair service, it seemed something
was missing. We observed many patients who later returned with still
more gum disease and tooth decay. In spite of our diligent efforts, some
patients were not getting healthier.

We
learned our frustration was not due to lack of interest or dedication,
but rather a failure to focus on education, motivation, nutritional
counseling and behavior change. Dental school gave me excellent
technical training, but the training focused on repairs and mechanics!
Through course of study, we were taught about building relationships
with people and getting our patients involved in their own health care
through behavior change and nutrition. We learned convincingly that
health is directly related to active participation.

People
always tell me they want a healthy, pain-free, mouth, and to keep all
their teeth for life. But I also believe that people want….NO DENTISTRY!
No fillings, no crowns, no root canals, no gum surgery, no needles or
injections, and no need to come to the office every 3 months! People
want freedom from the dentist, and they would like to spend their time
and money elsewhere.

Is
it possible to give our patients what they want…a healthy smile that
feels good, lasts a life-time, and no dentistry? First, we believe that
answer lies in education, and encouraging our patients to take
responsibility to care for themselves. We encourage our patients to
think health first, something they can give themselves, and
treatment/repair second.

Our
second responsibility is to deliver optimum ideal dental treatment to
our patients. If we can help our patients get their mouth healthy first,
then we can take the time to restore their teeth so they have the least
chance of needing repair again later. If disease is controlled, and
breakdown is stopped, treatment can often be phased over time. Our
patients can choose to restore their mouths with durable, long lasting
and aesthetic restorations, rather than making hasty repairs as they
need replacement.

Most
dental offices are repair centers that focus on the short-term fix.
Patients often become frustrated and disillusioned about what dentistry
can do for them. We believe in treatment that will last many years
longer than the commonly used silver or plastic materials used for
fillings. This philosophy allows our patients to be free from repeated
patchwork dentistry. Freedom from dentistry is what we all really want.
Working together we can help our patients keep their teeth for a
lifetime.

Chatsworth Bite Misalignment

Malocclusion (or a bad bite) is due
to misalignment of the teeth which is often caused by genetics, age, failing or
poor dental work, decayed or missing teeth or crowding.

Missing back teeth, especially for
aging persons can create, as well as, exacerbate a ‘deep bite’ that will
eventually cause collapse of the bite and lower face. A bad bite is not merely
an aesthetic issue as it can result to major damage to the teeth and gums as
well as trigger headaches develop into tempo romandibular joint (TMJ) disorder,
hearing and digestive problems.

The most common types of bite
disorders are:

- open bite

- teeth crowding

- deep overbite

- closed bite

- crossed bite

- teeth protrusion

Correcting bite misalignment
improves the functionality of teeth and keep it healthy as well, but more
importantly, dramatically improves the appearance of your smile too.

Deep bite treatment often
necessitates a multi-discipline method with orthodontics and restorative
dentistry
usually involved. Find out the most appropriate treatment options for
bad bite that can help restore your smile and your confidence.
