Many dentists treat dentistry like car repair. They’re focused on basic maintenance and repair. They perform simple maintenance procedures that they think will help preserve your teeth, and then they respond to problems as they arise.
They repair one tooth at a time, treating that tooth as seems best. Then they’ll go on to the next tooth. And the next. The assumption is that each tooth will break in time, and that, like as not, you’ll end up having all your teeth fail and need to have them replaced.
But your teeth are not supposed to fail. Your teeth are designed to last a lifetime–and they can, if cared for properly. Nashville neuromuscular dentist Dr. Kent E. White takes a comprehensive approach to your smile and the result is healthy teeth treated comprehensively so they function properly and look beautiful.
