What does Comprehensive Dentistry cover?

 JJ Dental offers two convenient office locations in Fort Lauderdale & Lauderdale by the Sea.

Comprehensive dentistry doesn’t just involve the mouth. It also involves the Temporomandibular joint, or jawbone, as well as the nervous system of the head. I’ve got some patients who come to me with migraines, and I only get this information from them because it’s important to me to ask all the questions when they fill out their medical history. For some patients, I’ve fixed their migraine problem. They no longer have migraines, and the reason for that is because the nerves that supply the mouth also supply the temporalis, or the head.

When these nerves don’t rest, because a patient, for instance, is grinding so aggressively, that nerves continue to fire. So upon waking, usually the patients will get very intense migraine pains shooting up the sides of their face. Really, often, it’s something as simple as fitting them for a night guard. You fit them for a night guard and all of the sudden, the migraines disappear. Comprehensive dentistry is looking at the bite, the way the teeth come together. It’s called occlusion. Occlusion is the way the teeth come together.

The way in which the teeth come together, there’s multiple different aspects of occlusion. You have functional and non-functional occlusion, and it’s a complex thing when you’re talking about how the bite or the position of the teeth relates to the temporomandibular joint.

It’s all interlinked, and it’s important to understand the link there. If you want to fix problems, like migraines or temporomandibular joint pain, or that sort of thing. It’s important to really be thorough with medical history, ask all the questions that might get you closer to potentially treating this patient comprehensively and thoroughly.

Comprehensive dentistry, it’s not just the teeth. It’s checking for oral cancer, making sure that you understand the link between the positioning of the teeth and the temporomandibular joint, and diagnosing everything that’s in the mouth at the same time. That includes the gums, the tissue, the cheeks, the lips, The palate, everything.

Cosmetic dentistry comes into all that at the end. Obviously, if a patient comes to me in pain, you want to treat the pain first. Then any sort of aesthetic concerns the patient has, always comes last. Cosmetic dentistry fits in there in the sense that, just the term “comprehensive” means that you’re really treating the patient wholly.

You’re seeing not only what sort of functional issues that may be going on, but any sort of pathology that the patient has in the mouth is really important to address first. Of course, like I said, sometimes patients won’t say it because they’re so embarrassed of their front teeth, the color, shape, whatever it is, often they won’t even mention it.

If you can win the patient over and get them to feel comfortable, often they’ll open up and start divulging more information with you to further treat them. When it comes to aesthetics, it’s part of being comprehensive.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for me smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.

We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
