Healthy Gums and Teeth for Cosmetic Dentistry

Having a healthy mouth is extremely important, especially if cosmetic dentistry has been on your mind lately.

According to Dr. Rhys Spoor, Dr. Thomas Sweeney and Dr. Richard Ansong having healthy gums is imperative if you want to proceed with treatments such as porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns. With that being said your bite and jaw joints must be in alignment as well.

It’s All About the Chewing System

If you follow this dental blog you will remember that your chewing system has everything to do with teeth and gums.

Because your chewing system, meaning your tongue, nerves, joints and muscles control the way everything comes together it must be in working order.

If your chewing system isn’t working properly, all dental restorations will have a tough time staying put.

For example, if you have temporomandibular joint disorder and grind your teeth dental restorations will not last very long. Teeth are incredibly strong, as strong as bones but subject them to chronic bruxism and they will wear down there is no question about it.

If this is happening to you Dr. Rhys Spoor, Dr. Thomas Sweeney and Dr. Richard Ansong will most likely recommend oral appliance therapy for TMJD. If you have a cross, over or under bite those issues will be looked at as well.
