Restoring structural balance to the bite



Structure: S + N – T = Physical Health

Body structure is the supporting framework of bone, cartilage and muscle that maintains the internal space for organs and provides movement of appendiges and overall body motion. Bones are subject to the laws of physics. If any part of the structure is damaged or misaligned, the connecting structures have to accommodate or move in any one of six directions to try and maintain some semblance of ideal overall balance.

In our practice we see structure as THE foundation of dentistry. In addition to gums and bony structures around the teeth, we are concerned with the upper and lower jaw and its connection to the head and neck region. We know the occlusion, the bite must be structurally sound to handle the considerable bite force that occurs thousands of times a day in chewing, swallowing and exerting force.

Teeth can wear and shift and even loosen and fall out which changes the bite, which in turn can realign all of the connecting structure in the head and even down the spinal column. Over time, muscles accommodate to these new, out of balance positions, creating additional stress particularly on the TMJ joint where the lower jaw hinges. Unfortunately, even past dental procedures can be a source of occlusal misalignment.

Since the nerves and blood flow to the jaw and face move through very small openings in the skull, any structural misalignment can affect the nerves and blood flow to the brain and throughout the body.

Restoring structural balance to the bite and masticatory system is addressing the cause of many dental problems. Without this knowledge only the symptoms are seen and handled which may not lead to a lasting solution!

With the results of the K7 we can show you exactly how your bite “measures up” to what would be your ideal occlusal position . The ideal position acts as a guide to all future dental work with that patient, from crown placements to dentures to complete dental revision.

Without this information we would be restoring the teeth to an arbitrary location; looking at how they interface locally with each other or to a cosmetic standard, rather than to the correct structural position in relation to the rest of the skeletal network in its balanced position.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson at Clearwater, FL

Dr. Beata A. Carlson

A graduate from the University of Maryland, Dr. Beata A. Carlson, is an established professional in dentistry. She is a firm believer in taking on a holistic approach to treating her patients’ dental concerns. It entails a general awareness of the body. It caters to the overall well-being of the patient using natural, biocompatible, and mercury-free dentistry methods instead of ‘spot treatment,’ where solutions are obtained to fix the temporary/surface wound instead of the underlying issue.

This approach promotes healthy living and proper oral care practice for day to day life. Dr. Beata A. Carlson insists on educating her patients on how to engage in such methods to help them achieve a better quality of life.

She invests both time and resources in the latest and most advanced technology to aid in diagnostics and treatment plans for her patients while maintaining a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson is also a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, The American Academy of General Dentistry and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
