You might not have heard of bioesthetic dentistry, but it can help you avoid dental problems down the road. Bioesthetic dentistry goes bioesthetic dentistrybeyond just keeping your teeth and gums healthy and focuses on keeping the entire chewing system strong and healthy.

Dr. Ernest Skaggs, your Radcliff, KY, area family dentist, specializes in bioesthetic dentistry.

Bioesthetic Dentistry

Bioesthetic dentistry focuses on the chewing system, which includes the teeth, jaw and related muscles. Dentists who practice bioesthetic dentistry examine such things as the position of the jaw, the way a patient bites down, and how a patient holds their teeth together. The goal is to make sure the entire chewing system is functioning well. For instance, the jaw and teeth should line up properly. Disruptions in the chewing system, such as teeth that are misaligned when biting down, can lead to further dental problems, like TMJ disorder, down the road.


As a patient, there are many benefits to having a Radcliff area family dentist who is knowledgeable about bioesthetic dentistry. By having your chewing system evaluated regularly to ensure it is functioning optimally, you can avoid developing a variety of dental issues. For instance, bioesthetic dentistry can help you avoid the following conditions that can be related to issues with jaw or tooth alignment:

  • Tooth Sensitivity
  • Bruxism (clenching or grinding teeth when sleeping)
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth
  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)
  • Discomfort when eating
  • Migraine Headaches

Bioesthetic dentistry is extremely beneficial in helping you maintain a beautiful and healthy smile, as well as a chewing system that works well. When jaw and tooth alignment are correct and the chewing system is functioning optimally, many dental conditions can be avoided.
