As a holistic dentist in Manhattan, we provide comprehensive dental care to patients throughout the city. Your teeth are incredibly important to your lifestyle. They influence how comfortable you are smiling and in social interactions. They also make it possible to enjoy all of your favorite foods and speak clearly. Without your teeth, your facial structure would change and so would your life. Fortunately, modern dentistry has made it possible to have healthy teeth and a gorgeous smile at the same time.
In our dental office, we take a holistic and comprehensive approach to dental care, finding solutions to all of our patient's needs. It is important to us that our patients are in excellent oral health because we believe that if your health is compromised, the appearance doesn't matter. After all, teeth that are infected will eventually start to look bad as they darken. With this in mind, it is unwise to simply focus on the cosmetic side of dentistry while ignoring the health component. Simultaneously, focusing on health alone could lead to a mouth full of metal fillings and an uncomfortable smile. We blend the two approaches so that our patients receive the best possible dental care.
As a holistic dentist in Manhattan, we want to learn more about you. Your lifestyle is something that most dentists don't explore, but it can directly influence the type of dental solutions that you should have. For example, knowing that you like to run marathons or participate in food competitions can and should, influence the type of dental restoration you receive should you ever damage or lose a tooth. For example, dentures are a common and practical way to replace missing teeth but if you like to do either of these two things, dentures would be a bad solution for you. In these scenarios, dental implants would be superior because they would allow you to engage in your normal activities without worrying about your teeth becoming loose or falling out. Simultaneously, knowing this information would tell us how much time you have to spend on dental care so that we can incorporate that information into our treatment plan. Understanding whether or not you would have time for the appointments is important.
That is what being a holistic dentist in Manhattan comes down to. It is an approach to dental care that considers your lifestyle, your overall health, your smile, and your goals. With this in mind, we also want to know what you do and don't like about your smile so that we can suggest ways to improve it. While we want our patients to be healthy, we also want you to feel confident when smiling. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of solutions available to us for improving the way that your teeth look. For example, we can whiten them, make them the same size, cover dark stains, and correct damage. We can replace your teeth and even help to straighten them. The options are limitless and together, we can ensure that you are healthy and feel beautiful.
