Comprehensive dental care can help you get and then maintain a strong, healthy, and attractive smile. Today our Elmhurst dentists are giving you some more information about what comprehensive dentistry entails, and why we think it is so important for patients of all ages. Let’s get started!

When we talk about providing comprehensive dental care, we mean that we have a dental philosophy that takes into account the patient’s entire smile, and how his or her smile affects overall wellbeing. We also make it a priority to meet all of our dental needs in our conveniently located office—comprehensive dentistry is all about providing the highest quality treatment available in the most efficient way possible.

A strong comprehensive dental plan begins with regularly scheduled professional dental cleanings. Most patients should complete professional cleanings every six months or so, though people with existing oral health complications may need to see their dental team more frequently.

If and when your smile does become damaged, we offer restorative treatments that honor the structure of your smile and look attractive. Composite restorations, for example, are completely customizable, and they do not require our dental team to aggressively shave and shape the tooth prior to crown placement. Porcelain crowns and veneers can also transform damaged teeth in a short period of time.

TMJ treatment is another important component of the comprehensive care that we offer. When your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is damaged or dysfunctional, you may suffer from premature dental erosion and damage as a result. Our team is here to optimize your oral health—including your bite structure.

Our Elmhurst dentists are here to give you all of the information that you need about comprehensive dentistry. Please feel free to call our office to speak to our team and schedule a personal dental consultation.
