Minimally Invasive Dentistry
"Preservation of a healthy set of natural teeth for each patient should be the objective of every dentist. All work in the health field is aimed basically at conservation of the human body and its function. … The surgeon is so conservative that loss of even a small part of a finger or toe, not withstanding the fact that the patient will still have nine more, is considered a tragedy. Likewise, loss of even a part of a human tooth should be regarded as a serious injury, never to be considered lightly, and the tooth is certainly worthy of the most careful restoration.”1
Drs. Dean and Tara Kois work tirelessly to implement the newest dental restorative materials and treatments. This keeps the doctors at the top of the field with a better understanding of the tooth’s potential for remineralization and recovery from dental procedures.
The minimal invasion concept includes:
- Earliest possible detection of lesions
- Case by Case cavities risk assessment
- Nonsurgical interventions on problem areas
- Minimal preparation techniques maximize remaining tooth structure and resultant tooth morbidity
Drs. Dean and Tara Kois use a modified surgical restoration approach that includes adhesive dental materials and repair rather than replacement or removal of failing restorations and teeth. Kois Dentistry's goal is preservation of natural tooth structure whenever possible.
