We use a system that can measure both the timing and force of bite for better diagnosis and treatment. It is called the Tekscan Diagnostic Test. We will capture the patient's bite: Slide to the right, slide to the left, slide forward, chewing motion, all of which have a relaxed state in between each movement. Add some line dancing music, and now we call it "Bite & Slide Shuffle"!

The mouth to the chin covers about 1/3 of the face. The properly developed mouth offers: improve speech; improve swallowing; better breathing, attractive smile; attractive profile; increased teeth cleanability; better long-term healthy teeth and gums; better lip closure, to name a few.

Dental Implants are biocompatible substitutes for lost natural teeth. It can be used to support a crown, a fixed bridge, or a removable denture. It offers a solution for patients who are chewing uncomfortably with conventional dentures, patients who lost teeth and does not want removable dentures or for patients who may need added support for a fixed bridge, to mention a few. "A man with a toothache thinks everyone happy whose teeth are sound." -- George Bernard Shaw
A denture is a removable mouthpiece appliance that houses artificial teeth with artificial gums and mimics the lost bone support. Since it is artificial, cosmetic features are incorporated to enhance the facial looks of the patient. When a denture is immediately delivered right after the teeth are extracted, it is called an Immediate Denture. When it uses retention of existing tooth or teeth and is placed over it, it is called an Overdenture. When it replaces a missing tooth or teeth but not all of them, it is called a Partial Denture. When it replaces the whole set of adult teeth, it is called a Full or Complete Denture. When it uses the retention of an implant or implants, it is called an Implant Denture. "The fastest and easiest way to lose a denture is to wrap it with a paper towel."-- Dr. Sarah Lim.DMD
Occasionally, the tissue that holds the upper lip to the attached gums above the upper central incisors and is strongly attached to the bone becomes excessive and thick that it grows between the front surfaces of the upper central incisors resulting to the inability for the upper front teeth to come together. The resultant space is unsightly. Treatment for this excessive frenum is called frenectomy or frenulectomy. "Teeth are always in style." -- Dr. Seuss
Here are some of the reasons why dental extraction is a treatment or an optional treatment but not limited to: extreme fracture or decay of the tooth structure beyond repair, severe periodontal disease with severe bone loss, irreversible pulp damage & patient decides against saving the tooth, failed endodontic (RCT) therapy, improper positioning of the tooth, severe pain & discomfort with wisdom teeth.
The tooth contains the nerve and tiny blood vessels called the pulp and it has limited ability to heal itself. Some of the causes for the pulp to die are deep cavities, trauma to the tooth, trauma to surrounding structure of tooth, wear & tear of tooth, combination of 2 or more conditions mentioned, or maybe due to idiopathic condition. The concerned tooth may or not be painful. It may or may not be visible on a dental x-ray, either. Endodontic Therapy (RCT) can save the tooth to avoid the harmful effects of tooth loss.

The gums, alveolar bone & periodontal ligament are the supporting structures of the teeth that is why they have to be properly maintained to keep them healthy. Did you know that gum & bone infection is linked to heart disease? stroke? premature, low birth weight babies? bone loss in the mouth? bone diseases like osteoporosis? obesity? diabetes?
