Jaws R Us.com
Your Information Source for Periodontal Health
Welcome. We look forward to meeting you at your first appointment and would
like to welcome you not only to our website, but to our practice. We will make
every effort to treat you as we would like to be treated ourselves.
We feel that it is very important for you to clearly understand why you have been
referred for treatment. With that thought in mind, this website seeks to offer you
detailed information on the procedures you are about to undertake. Many of you have been
referred for one of the following:
- Gum diseases are the major cause of tooth loss in adults. The two main diseases affecting periodontal
health are gingivitis, in which the gums tend to bleed easily with brushing, and periodontitis which results in boneloss
around the teeth.
- Dental Implants involve the insertion of permanent tooth replacements
in the upper and lower jaws to be used to support either fixed (permanent) bridgework or to help stabilize detachable
(removeable) partial or full dentures.
Following the initial examination and consultation, a detailed treatment plan
will be presented. The rational for treatment will be explained as well as any
alternatives that may be available.
- Orofacial Pain & Dysfuntion deals with a family of disorders involving
jaws and jaw muscles (so called TMJ Disorders), tooth pains of non dental origin, headache and a host of other head, neck
and jaw pains complaints.
We look forward to a relaxed and pleasant visit with you. If there is anything we
can do to help make your visit more comfortable or if you have any questions, please
do not hesitate to ask. Your questions and commments are always welcome.
