One of the core tenants of Rock Dental is the practice of Bioesthetic Dentistry. The term “Bioesthetic Dentistry” refers to the study of the chewing system, namely the teeth, jaw joints, bite, and muscles. This system functions optimally when all parts of the system are in complete balance, resulting in an esthetically pleasing and healthy smile.
What many think of as “normal wear and tear,” dentists dedicated to this study have found is preventable and avoidable. No matter what your age, you can have a youthful smile whose parts works in harmony, alleviating many side-effects of imbalance. Symptoms such as jaw pain, excessive wearing and chipping of teeth, headaches, back and shoulder pain, jaw clenching, receding gums, ear pain and congestion can be corrected or avoided with Bioesthetic Dentistry.
The difference between cosmetic dentistry and Bioesthetic Dentistry lies in its purpose. Cosmetic changes in the teeth are meant to beautify the smile, but do not always address the functional issues that cause the initial breakdown. Bioesthetic Dentistry not only makes teeth look better, it also improves the health of your mouth and entire body.
