Your Mouth: A Finely Tuned Machine

What’s your dream car? Be exotic. It’s okay. Now, see how shiny and beautiful the car looks in your imagination? You’d look 10 years younger behind the wheel, wouldn’t you?
And now, let’s pop the hood. Oooooh… the engine looks spectacular. Listen to that rumble. All the perfect parts are working in perfect harmony, and this is the perfect mode of transportation.
Okay, now open your eyes and look in the mirror. What would your dream smile look like? If it were shiny and beautiful, you’d look 10 years younger, wouldn’t you?
Now, let’s pop the hood. How do those crowns and fillings look? Do you notice any stains or chips? Are any of your teeth crooked, broken, worn down, or oddly spaced? Do you have fang-like canine teeth?
How does your smile run? Are your gums in good shape? Any loose teeth? How about those jaw joints… do you get headaches, do your jaws pop or click? Are you prone to chronic earaches or facial pain?
Could be that your smile needs a little refurbishing.
Whether you want to admit it or not, your oral health and appearance are more important than your dream car. About 69% of adults have lost one or more teeth, but in this day and age, people can keep their teeth longer than ever before. Just take care of your mouth, and it will last for years to come. It will make you feel good, look good, and it’ll also send the right message about your image.
At Grinnell Street Dental, we practice neuromuscular dentistry. Neuro refers to nerves. Muscular, of course, refers to muscles. And dentistry refers to your teeth and mouth. The basis of neuromuscular dentistry is a belief that, like parts of a great automobile engine, the parts of your mouth must work together for optimal beauty and function. Your teeth, gums, jaw joints, nerves, muscles, and tooth alignment work together so that your smile fires on all cylinders.
When dentistry is approached from a neuromuscular philosophy, a smile will look sensational, and it will also function comfortably. If you’re ready to experience dental care based on harmony and focused on excellence, call Grinnell Street Dental in Sheridan, Wyoming at 307-672-7567 to schedule a consultation. Our family of doctors, Dr. Donald, Dr. Cody, and Dr. Justin Coon may not have what it takes to give you a Lamborghini, but they can give you something better — an unforgettable smile, designed to last your lifetime.
