To create an open and honest approach to communication with one another and to foster a working environment that encourages employees to strive for professional and personal growth if they want it.
Practice Philosophy and Scope
Reconstructive Dentistry is probably the broadest and most inclusive term used to describe the concept of replacing, rebuilding or creating, for the first time, the elements and relationships between teeth, the upper and lower jaws and overall facial structures.
Although reconstructive treatment plans typically involve units of replacement or reparative dentistry (replacing a crown, a filling, an implant, bridge, etc.), the terms are not interchangeable.
Rather, Dental Reconstruction refers to the elements of change introduced by treating and/or replacing tooth structures and … most importantly.. the process of assuring an optimization of bite that maintains dental function for each and every unique patient.
Creating What Mother Nature Forgot
In general terms… it is rare that any given individual will have picture perfect teeth and a smile that compliments a person’s features in every possible way. Typically, for many of us… the reconstructive treatments can begin at a very early age.
Orthodontists specialize in moving things around, up and down, to create a good solid bite that functions and looks the way it should. Developmental issues are first encountered during the early years and in significant cases can involve surgery to achieve something that we expect nature to provide…. jaw structures that match.
ReCreating What is Missing
Creating or recreating components of a great looking smile takes on more importance as we move into adulthood. Careers and social activities have a tremendous impact on how we want to look. Bite problems, if not treated or corrected during our developmental years can (actually, will) come into full bloom as we move through adulthood.
Eating habits, oral health care histories, trauma, delayed or forestalled treatments for routine restorations make up a larger part of all the things that can require a reconstructive effort… rather than just restorative.
Endurance of course becomes a significant issue for any restorative treatment but when a complete smile makeover is the desired result… our patients can select from a virtual menu of reconstructive components that can promise long term endurance of either cosmetic results, functional results.. or both.
Dental treatments, procedures and components are made available to the consuming public with an extreme variety of cosmetic outcomes and endurance of dental function. Because of this wide variety, no two dental products (crowns, veneers, implants, dentures, partials, bridgework, fillings, etc) nor their associated procedures are exactly the same.
Dr. Waked and his staff provide each and every patient with a depth of knowledge and technical assessment ability to make the best, most sensible treatment decision that produces the precise outcome desired, with no exceptions.
