Metal-Free Restoration

 

Your Desired Smiles believes in providing high quality cosmetic metal free dental restorations. Our smile makeover procedures offer a metal free environment. We only use the latest porcelain or composite materials in the office. Composite materials come in a variety of shades to match your unique tooth color and create a beautiful restoration matching the shape, shade, and function of the original tooth.

Metal fillings contribute to tooth fractures, as they are tightly packed into the cavity to hold it in place. Over time, the filing contracts and expands in response to hot and cold food and drink. This contraction and expansion eventually causes a fracture in the tooth. Porcelain fillings are temperature-resistant and bonded to the tooth for added strength to prevent fractures.

Benefits of metal free restoration:

 

We offer a safe way to remove silver fillings by using a high-volume evacuator suction process following the high standard procedures for cosmetic dentistry options.

Botox

Sleep Apnea

 

Our innovative solutions provide natural ways for the body to improve snoring and sleep apnea in adults, as well as tooth alignment and facial appearance, using the concepts of Pneumopedics® and Craniofacial Epigenetics.  These novel protocols, including Epigenetic orthopedics first pioneered by Dr. Dave Singh, are painless and do not use surgery, drugs or injections.

Typically, oral appliances used to manage snoring and sleep apnea are mandibular advancement devices that simply protrude the lower jaw.  These devices are worn over a lifetime, and do not address the underlying etiology of the condition. In contrast, we advocate upper airway remodeling or Pneumopedics® to re-develop the airway so that underlying sleep apnea can be resolved in some mild and moderate cases.

Our biomimetic technique is different because instead of simply repositioning the mandible, our patented, FDA-registered Daytime-Nighttime Appliance® system (or DNA appliance®), which is worn during the evening and at night, allows the body to gently increase the size of the upper jaw and increase the volume of the nasal airway, sometimes to the extent that the underlying issues are completely eliminated. In addition, our FDA-cleared, patented, mandibular Repositioning-Nighttime Appliance® (or mRNA appliance®) is a biomimetic oral appliance that provides combined maxillo-mandibular correction. The mRNA appliance is worn at night, and this allows the body to reposition the mandible while gently redeveloping the midface, as well as remodeling the upper airway in adults, while correcting the positions of the teeth into a more natural position.  

Our diagnostic support and treatment solutions provide the tools for natural jaw development and upper airway remodeling through craniofacial enhancement. In addition, the DNA appliance®protocols are effective in addressing issues such as TMD and headaches in both adults and children painlessly without using surgery, drugs or injections.

Ozone for Dentistry

 

When you hear the word ozone, the first thing that many people think of is air pollution. Yet ozone protects us from harmful sunlight that causes skin cancers. In fact, many critically important uses of this powerful, naturally-occurring gas are not so well known, but they serve us every day.

Major cities throughout the U.S. and the rest of the world use ozone to sterilize their public water systems, and ozone is commonly used to sterilize the fruits and vegetables we eat and the bottled water and sodas we drink. It’s used in air purification systems, commercial laundries, and swimming pools and spa baths.

The medical community — especially in Europe — has been using ozone for decades to speed up wound-healing and to treat a variety of diseases. Controlled ozone application has been found to be extremely safe and free from side effects — far freer than most medications, including antibiotics.What could be more natural since our own bodies produce ozone at the white-cell level to kill offending microorganisms? The ozone molecule is the most powerful agent that we can use on microorganisms. It is deadly to bacteria, viruses, and fungi, yet the more highly evolved human cells are not damaged by ozone in lower concentrations.
