The more natural each component of the dental system is, the more alive it is.
The more alive the oral system is, the healthier it is.
The more natural the form, the more effective the function of the entire oral system.
Natural form and function create the quality of beauty.
The field of BioEsthetics has studied tooth form, the interaction of the teeth (called occlusion) and that interaction with the Temporomandibular joint for many years.
It's not surprising to find that when all these interactions in nature are found in their ideal state, original natural dentition can last a life time.
It then makes perfect sense that if we follow the ideal conditions (or Forms) when any Preservative or Restorative work is done; the work will last longer and we as patients will feel better.
When some aspect of a person's bite or occlusion, is out of "Sync" with their TMJ this is often referred to as Temporomandibular Disease, TMD.
Some of the symptoms of TMD are severely worn teeth, dental work breaking, cracking or popping of the TMJ, head or neck aches, migraine headaches, dizziness, and/or sleeplessness; there are many symptoms of TMD.
Dr. Dawson has chosen to go through the many years of Post-Graduate studies necessary to treat TMD in a systematic and ethically sound manner.
Along with the years of training, specialized instrumentation and equipment must be utilized.
Because its best for our patients !!!
Bioesthetic Principles make it possible to teach dentists how to restore ANY dentition in ANY state of pathologic degeneration.
More importantly, understanding the model of optimal health and using it as a framework for early diagnosis is the keystone of preemptive, pathology avoiding, treatment for the young patient.
We have had so many successes that the idea of not practicing to BioEsthetic standards seems like going back to the Stone Age.
Patients that have suffered for years from debilitating neck pain and sleeplessness are now enjoying life.
Patients that had suffered profound dizziness and headaches can now go to work with out fear.
And patients that suffered for years with ugly worn broken teeth now have beautiful smiles and self-confidence.
