by Dr. Jeffrey Etess, DMD, NMD, IBDM

Dr. Jeffrey Etess, DMD, NMD, IBDM, and his team at Integrative Dental Specialists of Long Island pride themselves on delivering the attention that his patients deserve, along with the highest level of dental expertise. “We set the highest treatment standard to achieve phenomenal functional, healthy, and aesthetic dental results,” assures Dr. Etess.

According to Dr. Etess, the best way to save your tooth is for the dentist to understand what has happened to the tooth. It isn’t just about being a tooth mechanic. The term “Drill and Fill” has been around since the start of the dental school in 1840. We have come a long way since then. There are consequences to the mechanics of drilling teeth. It is extremely important for the dentist to fully understand not only the physical part of repairing teeth, but also the biological living part of the tooth. Teeth are alive; a complex neurovascular bundle surrounded by a tubular fluid communication tooth network.

If you don’t respect the biology of the tooth, it certainly won’t comply with the dental therapy. Keeping your teeth alive should be your dentist’s primary focus. Besides tooth decay, there are several ways teeth can be damaged like blunt trauma, wear and tear, and periodontal disease. Let us not forget about the gum and bone around teeth that are also very important.

Dr. Etess and his team respect your biology. Think of Dr. Etess as a dental architect. He really understands how all the parts go together safely and effectively and, by doing so, can help restore your mouth and smile back to looking and functioning naturally so well that no one will even know you were having dental work. All that is left is your glowing smile!

Far too often, Dr. Etess sees patients that have been told they are not candidates for certain dental procedures. By utilizing today’s state of the art dental technologies and advanced dental procedures, what once was a “no” is now an obvious “yes” for dental treatment. For example, some patients could not have dental implants because they didn’t have enough bone. “Fortunately, our practice has the technology to harvest your own living bone for self-bone grafts along with utilizing Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) from your blood to allow the placement of the correct type of dental implant specifically for you,” he affirms.

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. The time for excuses has passed. If you are looking for the finest, safest, healthiest and most predictable results to correct your dental issues that are supported by the most advanced dental technology, contact Integrative Dental Specialists to make an appointment with Dr. Etess today.
