Bioesthetic Dentistry looks beyond just your teeth; the fundamental concept behind bioesthetics is the functionality of your "chewing system," which includes your teeth, gums, and facial muscles. Dr. Robert L. Lee defines bioesthetics as "the study or theory of the beauty of living things in their natural form and function." By eliminating disharmony in your bite, you can prevent - or even reverse - the most noticeable signs of aging in your smile. The proper formation of your teeth can relieve stress on your facial muscles, correct bite discrepancies, and create a more youthful, healthy smile.
Mago Therapy is a key component to addressing your biting system as a whole. If MAGO therapy alone cannot sustain the stabilization of your bite, the next step in bioesthetic dentistry involves using dental restorations to adjust the shape and size of your teeth in order to give you your ideal bite. After completing MAGO therapy, assuming further bioesthetic shaping is necessary, Dr. Hsu will construct models of your teeth demonstrating their current function and their adjusted function after the proposed reconstructions occur. You will get the chance to see the difference in form, function, and appearance before deciding if you would like to proceed with Dr. Hsu's personalized plan for you.
