The start of a beautiful smile begins with healthy foundations
Dr. Monica Crooks’ philosophy is that it makes no sense to invest in the expensive smile makeover restorative options until you have a solid foundation of health as a starting point. Thus, the first step for all her patients is the elimination of disease. As an orthodontist, she can help you achieve an aligned set of teeth with innovative tools such as Invisalign.
But while you are going through the process of getting healthy and learning how to stay that way, if your needs require it, Dr. Monica Crooks can give you temporary cosmetic fixes that allow you to look fantastic during the length of time it takes you to get your gums healthy and eliminate all tooth decay.
Establishing health is an imperative part of the cosmetic restorative process as it will ensure that any treatments you receive will be long-lasting and your smile will not be compromised by rapid deterioration. And today’s fabulous technology is such that Dr. Monica Crooks, your skilled cosmetic dentist, simply does not use any restorative materials that are not esthetically beautiful.
A healthy mouth is also the gateway to long-lasting general medical health as your teeth are connected to your bloodstream. Bacteria from gum disease can enter your circulatory system and compromise your cardiac health. An infection in an upper tooth can travel through your sinuses and infect your brain. Dental health is no joke. Do not take it for granted.
“In fact I have a personal passion for dental health because my father’s sister died at the age of 18 from an infected upper canine tooth. This is a tragedy that need not happen! See a dentist regularly!” ~Dr. Monica
You can be sure that with Dr. Monica Crooks as your dentist, together with her expert hygiene team, you will begin your care by making sure that your gums, bone and teeth are all in foundationally healthy condition.
Dr. Monica Crooks Can Also Treat Your Sleep Apnea and TMJ Pain
Dr. Monica Crooks is a dentist who applies a comprehensive approach to your care. She addresses peripherally related conditions such as temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD) and sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a disorder caused by the tongue relaxing into the airway and blocking oxygen intake into the lungs. It causes morbidity and can be fatal.
The best treatment for sleep apnea is CPAP, but for those who cannot tolerate the CPAP, Dr. Monica Crooks, DDS offers an effective more comfortable removable oral appliance option that holds the lower jaw and tongue forward thereby keeping the airway open for effective breathing during the night.
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction had numerous causes and must be evaluated on a case by case basis. Some TMJD is simple, transitory and easily managed. Other TMJD causes are anatomical, chronic, complex and more difficult to treat. TMJD disorders have the best treatment success the earlier you seek treatment.
