Family Dentistry : Services : Weston

Family Dentistry at Stephen J Pyle, DDS serves as the first line of defense and detection for serious health problems like gum disease and oral cancer. A dental exam typically includes periodic x-rays where these problems can be spotted and appropriate action taken. Serious gum disease can contribute to heart disease and stroke making the dental exam even that much more important to a family member’s overall health.

Family Dentistry…Did You Know?

When people think of family dentistry they most likely think dental exams, digital x-rays, teeth cleaning, extractions and teeth polishing. However today, a trained dentist like Dr. Pyle can offer can offer additional services that might surprise you:

  • NTI Tension Suppression System. This is a custom fit dental appliance that patients can wear at night to significantly reduce migraine headaches and migraine associated stress headaches. Dr. Pyle was the first to offer this non-surgical, no-drug, no side effects therapy in Weston.
  • Customized sports guards. If you or your children play a contact sport or a sport that could potentially result in a dental injury (like tennis or racquetball) Dr. Pyle can create a custom mouth guard for protection.
  • Tooth colored fillings. This filling material looks and feels more natural and is an excellent alternative to traditional silver filling material.
  • Dental hypnosis. Certified by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis Dr. Pyle can put anxious patients at ease using dental hypnosis making the dental treatment process less stressful.
  • Sleep Apnea Oral Appliances.  If you have been diagnosed with mild to moderate Sleep Apnea, Dr. Pyle can custom fit you for an oral appliance to treat your sleep apnea ( rather than using a CPAP – Continuous Positive Airway Pressure – device.)

Family dentistry is an important part of your family’s overall health care program. Regular dental examinations and maintenance can prevent major (and expensive) dental issues later on: read more

Cosmetic dentistry : Weston FL

Improving Your Quality of Life Through Cosmetic Dentistry

If you think cosmetic dentistry is a luxury, think again. How you perceive the appearance of your teeth can have a major impact on your self-confidence, self-image and how you interact with others. If you are completely confident in your smile…you’ll smile more often and that can change the way people think about you.

Imagine having the confidence of a perfect smile when interacting with business associates or clients. You will engage in conversations more freely and you won’t have that nagging worry about how you appear to others. Cosmetic dentistry is not a luxury; it is not an exclusive service for the rich and famous, it is a means to improve the quality of your life.
