Frequently Asked Questions
Traditionally, to correct major alignment issues or to create a winning smile, dentists turned to crowns, sometimes crowning every tooth in a patient’s mouth to get the desired functionality and aesthetics. There’s a lot of room for things to go wrong with this process and, quite frankly, if you don’t need to remove all that tooth structure, why would you? This is exactly why pioneers in the minimally-invasive BioRejuvenation dentistry field do what they do. While crowns are sometimes still necessary, applying certain techniques to resin-composite materials allows for less removal of tooth structure. The newer techniques also ensure that, in the hands of an expertly-trained dentist, a patient will still have a beautiful smile and it will last longer than traditionally-placed resin-composites.
BioRejuvenation dentistry is a relatively new school of thought based on biology principles. There has been extensive research performed on how chewing works and functions to shape it. So, BioRejuvenation dentistry focuses on an in-depth process to improve the jaw’s stability, and ensure the TMJ muscles are relaxed, which all work to keep the teeth from becoming damaged.
Dentists that practice BioRejuvenation dentistry aren’t necessarily just treating symptoms, but diagnosing the chewing system as a whole. It is about restoring teeth to their original shape and function to give better results. Aesthetics, overall functionality, and long-term improved oral health are all goals of BioRejuvenation dentistry.
Of course we cannot actually go back in time and get younger. However, the restoration of a chewing and smiling system to its optimal function results in a more youthful appearance by creating natural lasting beauty, elimination of most headaches, and optimal relaxation of the facial, head and neck muscles. This cannot be accomplished by just fixing the teeth, which is the focus of traditional dentistry. No, this is accomplished through the wonder of BioRejuvenation Dentistry.
BioRejuvenation dentistry is a new biology-based approach to treatment. Based on extensive scientific research and observation of the human chewing system, Rejuvenation dentistry is a comprehensive process where:
• Jaw joints are stable
• Muscles are relaxed
• Teeth are not worn down
Patients who undergo BioRejuvenation dentistry enjoy:
• Excellent esthetics
• Improved function
• Preservation of the natural teeth
• Long-lasting dental health
Did you know…?
• Too often, dental care focuses on managing the symptoms of dental disease. BioRejuvenation Dentistry transforms dental care by adopting a new paradigm – one that establishes the goal of bringing you to the highest level of health possible by treating the underlying cause of disease.
• BioRejuvenation Dentistry replicates the forms and function found in natural dental biology. It calls for a conservative approach to dental care. Meticulous comparative studies of your teeth and jaw position are used to develop an individualized treatment plan especially suited for you. This is accomplished utilizing digital x-rays of your teeth and jaw joint, and photographs and models of your teeth mounted in a jaw-simulator that is custom programmed to simulate your chewing and jaw movements.
• Three characteristics of the IDEAL CHEWING AND SMILING SYSTEM must be replicated to establish health, comfort and lasting beauty.
• Stable jaw joint position (TMJ) – sadly, this is almost always ignored in traditional dentistry. In BioRejuvenation Dentistry, establishing a stable TMJ is the top priority.
• Correct upper–to-lower teeth relationship – the brain perceives and directs the jaw muscles to guide the jaw home without teeth colliding, clenching or grinding. Combined with a stable jaw position this leads to the elimination of most headaches and optimally relaxed jaw muscles resulting in a more youthful transformation of the face and eyes.
• Proper tooth form – the proper shape of the teeth provides the ultimate in chewing efficiency, comfort and a BEAUTIFUL SMILE!
I, Dr. Kellye Rice, believe in BioRejuvenation Dentistry so much that I had it done in my own mouth instead of getting porcelain veneers and spent 30 days over the course of 18 months training at the Texas Center for Occlusal Studies during 2021-2022 to learn this so I can help my patients. In this short time, we have already helped many people who tell us of their newly found lease on life after the elimination of the chronic health problems that plagued them for years. These health problems included headaches, neck and facial muscle pain, ear pain, clenching, grinding, tooth pain and gum recession, jaw bone loss, fractured teeth, a constant ‘awareness’ of their teeth/bite…just to name a few. I feel privileged and honored to be able to offer Rejuvenation Dentistry to my patients. This might or might not be the right time for you, only you can determine this, but please know I am here to help you to make the best decision for yourself at this time in your life.
There are several distinguishing aspects when comparing BioRejuvenation dentistry to cosmetic dentistry, according to Dr. Rice. “As a practitioner of BioRejuvenation dentistry, I diagnose the cause of tooth wear and other chewing system problems, rather than just treating the symptoms,” he says. “Cosmetic dentistry’s primary purpose is to beautify the teeth or smile and is driven by appearance rather than function. The BioRejuvenation dentistry process restores damaged teeth to their original, youthful shape and optimizes mouth function. As a result, patients feel better, look their best and the need for future restorative dental work is significantly reduced. It’s a comprehensive and proactive approach to dental health.”
While BioRejuvenation dentistry has been around for many years, practicing it with minimally invasive dentistry techniques is a fairly recent addition and that makes it groundbreaking. It also means that the information available on it is only offered by a select few who are pioneers in the field.
