Overview

Patients spend millions of dollars each year on diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. A practicing dentist and expert witness with over twenty-five years of experience takes a behind-the-scenes look at the world of dentistry while teaching about the importance of good occlusion, how orthodontists have failed their patients, and the many shortfalls of periodontics.

David DiBenedetto, DMD, claims that occlusion-how our teeth meet when our jaws are brought together-is of crucial importance to dental health. He also states that the field of orthodontics continues to concern itself about aesthetics, not on how jaws function, even though studies illustrate that orthodontic treatment does not increase the chances of keeping teeth later in life. Dr. DiBenedetto has made it his life's work to educate dental patients on the importance overall health plays in determining dental health and in what treatment works best for periodontal disease. You will learn:

  • How periodontists and orthodontists think
  • How the jaw works
  • How to determine what you want from your orthodontist
  • How you can keep your teeth and gums healthy

Case histories, photographs, and diagrams are provided in this informative guidebook that will help explore your difficult dental questions in a logical manner.
