Buillding Blocks for Dental Wellness

The Problem with Traditional Dentistry

All dental problems start off small. A tiny speck of plaque around the gums; a minuscule fracture on the surface of the tooth; a nearly-undetectable cavity. However, if left untreated, the problem grows over time, resulting in a much bigger problem (root canal, extraction, crown). The reactionary approach of traditional dentistry never actually gets you healthy – it only maintains the status quo – a mouth full of small problems, ready to turn into big ones at a moment’s notice. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way.

Patient-Centered Dental Care

At C.J. Richard Dentistry, the patient is in charge – not us, not the insurance company. As your dental health coach, we are here to listen and to give you guidance based on your goals.

Holistic Dentistry Services in Walker, Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, Livingston

As providers of Holistic Dentistry, we believe the mouth is not a separate compartment from the body. We must remember that the same blood that flows through your teeth and gums also travels to the rest of your body including your heart and other organs. The body functions as a whole, complete system or in a holistic manner. Thus dental disease has an impact on one’s systemic health, also the mouth can be viewed as a window to the health of the whole body! I think that better reflects what we need.

Good Health Starts In the Mouth – 3 Goals

  1. Infection-Free Gum Tissue and Bone – Periodontal disease causes tooth loss, and is linked with heart disease (the same bacteria has been found in both sites). Solution: Brush, Floss & Regular Dental Cleanings
  2. No Cracks, Decay or Openings In Teeth – These fractures allow bacteria to invade the tooth pulp, which threatens the tooth. Solution: Seal the Teeth
  3. Separation: Teeth Should Not Touch While Sleeping – Clenching and grinding are a common cause of tooth damage. Solution: A simple sleeping appliance.

Benefits of the Wellness Model:

  • Less dental treatment over your lifetime
  • Avoidance of extreme treatments like extractions and root canals
  • Better overall health
  • Less expense in the long run
  • Good nutritional options for life

So let us be your dental coach – not just your doctor or teacher, but a real coach that will stand by you through the years to lessen the financial and mental stress that too often accompany the average dental story.

Example: Better Dental Treatment Options

Typically, when a tooth is broken, a crown is placed. Yet, most dentists know that crowns are often an overly aggressive treatment for small cracks. We want you to know that you do have a choice: new technologies in bonding, known as “Maximized Adhesive Dentistry” allow us to fix broken teeth in a less invasive way. With techniques like this, we are able to preserve the tooth structure and protect the pulp in just one visit.

As Hippocrates, the Greek physician, said “Preventing disease is preferable to waiting for disease to happen”.

Whatever state you think your oral health is in, there is a plan and a solution for you. We are ready to help you create a personalized plan for a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles! Please call us at (225) 664-0210
