Dr. Jack Fong does not just offer you general dentistry treatments. He also provides restorative and cosmetic treatments, and several “extras” that will help to make your visit to our dentist office more comfortable, more pleasant, and less stressful. We know that sometimes it is not just a toothache that brings you to see us. You might be suffering from some kind of pain that you cannot even reasonably identify – TMD, perhaps?
What we want you to know is that we care about you, and we know that you are about more than just your teeth. We consider you to be our patient, not just “your mouth.” So, if you are in pain, you can rely on us to take care of you. We offer more than just fillings and extractions.
It is surprising how many people are in discomfort at night, often without even realizing it. They wake up with headaches or jaw pain, and no idea how it could have happened. The culprit is often night grinding, which can be easily corrected with a night guard that is custom-fitted to the mouth.
Of course, there are night guards available from drug stores, but the thing is that they are not custom fitted. They might stop your teeth from meeting while you sleep, but they will not be comfortable. Dr. Jack Fong can fit you with a night guard that is made especially for your mouth, so you will be relaxed all night long. You will also be far more comfortable, and when you wake up, you will not be in pain. You do not have to be in discomfort when you have the right night guard.
Holistic dentistry is also sometimes referred to as alternative dentistry, or biological dentistry. It is essentially a means of treating the dental patient as a “whole” person instead of just focusing on what is happening in the mouth. It means that the dentist is concerned about your overall well-being, not just the state of your teeth.
One of the most important aspects of holistic dentistry is removing amalgam (metal) fillings. These fillings contain mercury, and no one really knows how much mercury is safe in the human body. So, holistic dentists take out your amalgam fillings and replace them with composite fillings. It looks better, and it gets the mercury out of your body. It can’t be bad, and it could actually improve the healing processes that are at work in your body.
If you have symptoms of TMD disorder (persistent tooth pain, headaches or neck pain, for example), Dr. Jack Fong can help. You do not have to live in discomfort when there are measures available to ease your pain. Dr. Fong can do a TMD assessment and recommend a course of treatment for you.
If you are not getting the good night’s sleep that you should, you may have sleep apnea. Common symptoms are waking up repeatedly, snoring, and being exhausted in the morning. Dr. Jack Fong can do a sleep apnea assessment and recommend a course of treatment that will give you the rest you need and deserve.
