Dr. Matt believes that dentistry includes looking at his patients’ teeth and oral habits as one whole working health system. If you come in with a broken tooth he’s going to find out why you are breaking your teeth. Are your teeth are out of alignment ? Are you grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw at night?
Are your gums tender and bleeding? Dr. Matt understands his patient’s lifestyle, hygiene habits, special needs, life stresses and then creates a treatment plan to encompass all those factors.
Dentistry has changed in the last few decades, beyond better technology and oral health science. Today a dentist considers the patient’s whole mouth and how it’s working collectively with their physical health. Rather than fixing that one tooth, Dr. Matt fixes the underlying problem causing the issue with the tooth.
To be physically fit you must take care of your teeth and gums. It’s Dr. Matt’s goal to ensure all his patients have a strong foundation in good oral health, which is linked to excellent physical health and longevity. To ensure quality of life with that longevity, people deserve a healthy mouth with strong gums and working teeth.
