Another Leap Forward in Dental Healing: The TRUTH about Dentistry
by Dr. Jeffrey Etess

Do you want to know the truth about dentistry? Can you handle the truth about dentistry? Is the stuff you Google about dentistry opinion, or is it fact? Are the Internet snippets of information based on modern science? Are they objective truths, or is this Internet folklore? It is really hard to know what is true. Even the news is distorted, depending on the source.

Here is a truth about dentistry with which most everyone will agree: No one really wants to go to the dentist and some actually “HATE” going. We go to the dentist to keep our teeth looking and functioning their best. We all want to feel and look good, and we cannot do that if there are issues with our teeth. There are so many people that believe their teeth could be the cause of their chronic health issues like cancers, fibromyalgia, lupus, Sjogren’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, psoriasis, arthritis, diabetes, thyroid disease, and inflammatory bowel disease, to name a few. The nice thing about an objective truth is that it is TRUE no matter what. Google searches are NOT objective truths. Instead, they are frequently the pinnacles of misleading opinions, driven by pay-per-clicks, distorting and distributing misinformation via the Internet. World famous astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson said, “One of the biggest challenges in the world is knowing enough about a subject to think you are right, but not enough about a subject to know you are wrong.” He could not be more CORRECT. At Integrative Dental Specialists of Long Island, Dr. Etess and his team can help you make sense of the information you have, what is objectively true and what is false. Our office has the specialized dental skill set to ALWAYS treat you with the best possible care available. We do it right, or we do not do it at all. Integrity is doing what is correct, even when no one is watching. Dental integrity is what Dr. Etess represents.

Your mouth is a wear and tear machine that requires maintenance. The appropriate materials, and technique are necessary for any proper repair, or it simply will not be successful. The unfortunate life cycle of a tooth with a cavity resulting from poor home care serves as a simple example. The dentist drills out the cavity and places a filling. If that cavity preparation is not isolated, disinfected, prepared and bonded correctly, the repair will prematurely fail and will require the filling to be replaced, often larger than the original filling. Larger fillings progress into crowns, which, too, will fail if not prepared, impressioned, fabricated, and inserted correctly. All crowns are certainly not equal; they are only as good as the dental talent and the skill of the lab technician making them. When crowns fail, root canal therapy is the next step. Shockingly, approximately 75% of root canals performed by non-specialist dentists are performed without the ever-so-important rubber dam which functions to keep the root canal clean and the germs out! THIS IS OBJECTIVE TRUTH. This single variable explains logically why so many root canals result in a bad outcome. If a root canal fails, the tooth gets extracted.

It is distressing for me to see patients damage their mouths by extracting teeth that CAN BE SAVED. Maintaining a healthy mouth, and preventing loss of your precious natural teeth is the main focus for Dr. Etess. Utilizing proprietary dental restorative techniques that utilize ultra-modern disinfection protocols including lasers and ozone therapy, diseased teeth can be restored to normal healthy function. Dental technology has advanced to such an extent that we can even provide our patients ToothRegenesis™, a technique pioneered by Dr. Etess to revitalize the tooth back to life as an alternative of our cutting edge, and still very effective and safe biological root canal therapy.

There is nothing better than the teeth you are born with, but for patients requiring tooth replacement, we offer only the best zirconia, titanium, and Roxsolid® (titanium /zirconium hybrid) dental implants. Implants often require bone-grafting procedures. We use the revolutionary Khoury™ grafts, which utilizes your own harvested bone along with Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) from your blood, containing growth factors, healing cytokines, and the all-important regenerative stem cells, to allow you to heal properly and rapidly.

Remaining on the cutting edge of the newest dental advancements is a full-time task and a top priority for Dr. Etess. In order to provide our patients with the most sanitary environment possible, we employ ENHANCED proactive ultraviolet air and surface office disinfection protocols. Do not assume all dentistry is the same. Dr. Etess prides himself on bringing you top notch, unmatched care. We work toward one standard—the HIGHEST standard. The time for excuses has passed.
