A healthy smile is an attractive smile, and our preventative, restorative, and general dentistry services can help make sure your smile is both healthy and attractive. As a cosmetic dentistry practice, we ensure that all your restorations are designed to look indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and we understand how your oral health is related to your overall health, so we provide dentistry with benefits far beyond your mouth.
If you are in need of general dentistry, and you want to make sure it gets corrected beautifully and with an eye to a healthy body, please call (619) 299-5925 Strober Dental today for an appointment.
Health and Beauty in Dentistry
At Strober Dental, we only use restorations that are highly attractive and help promote your overall body health. We do not use mercury-filled metal amalgam fillings, we use only white fillings. We have two options: composite resin fillings and custom-crafted ceramic fillings. We use nonmetal for your replacement teeth, and both the crowns and ceramic fillings can be made using the CEREC system while you wait.
Heart Health Starts in Your Mouth
We’re not talking about your diet here, although that can certainly affect your heart’s health. Instead, we’re talking about the link between gum disease and heart disease. Several studies have shown that the effects of gum disease spread through your body. Gum disease can increase your risk of heart attacks, coronary artery disease, and other types of heart disease. Gum disease in pregnant women can increase risk of premature birth and low birth weight.
We offer advanced laser periodontal treatment. This makes periodontal treatment faster with less discomfort, and the laser can help sterilize the gum pocket, reducing the amount of residual bacteria.
Healthy, Restorative Sleep
Speaking of heart health, possibly the primary driver of coronary artery disease is sleep apnea, a condition in which your breathing stops possibly hundreds of times a night, causing oxygen shortage to your brain. Your heart begins working harder and your brain partly awakens to restore breathing. Sleep apnea puts you at risk not just of heart problems, but of dozens of other risks including mood disorders and car and workplace accidents.
Fortunately, with treatment, the negative effects of sleep apnea can be largely reversed. We can help you get a comfortable and effective sleep apnea treatment.
An Integrated System
Your body is like a machine whose parts all depend on one another for proper functioning. A problem in one place can lead to widespread problems that can be hard to trace to their original cause.
One such problem is temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ or TMD), in which an imbalance in your jaw can cause muscle problems, pinch nerves, and result in jaw pain, headaches, and even tingling or numbness in your fingers.
We offer nonsurgical TMJ treatment that may lead to immediate relief of all symptoms.
