∏ Dentistry, P.C.​

About 50% of the population avoids a visit to a  dentist due to pain and anxiety.  In 1987,  Dr. Moore's intention   was  to help reduce the fear of a dental visit and improve the  dental health of his patients. His mission statement was for the all of his patients, especially the anxious ones,  to keep their teeth until they are 100 years old.

His under graduate educational background was in Chemistry and Mathematics. Dental School was suspended for three years so Dr. Moore could continue his  pursuit into spectroscopy and  lasers  at the Illinois Institute of Technology for a master's thesis in Chemeistry and then onward to acoustic products as a research member in the United States Gyspum Company. The three years were in corporate america and academia are the basis of his practice.  He takes time for his patients and has retain the passion for the dental profession.

After completing a DDS degree at Loyola University Dental School in 1986, Dr. Moore completed a one year general practice residency in the  Zoller Dental Clinic at the University of Chicago Hospital and Clinics, a once in a lifetime experience. 

Joint Based Occlusion

Eliminating interferences in Function is the  keen to understand occlusion.

The condition and position of the condyle and disk within the glenoid fossa is elvauated as the first step in interpeting the occlusion of our patients. Does this postiion match when all the teeth come into maxium contact? The lower jaw artiuclates with the fixed upper jaw so the can be properly masticated and then swallowed to avoid the orophyanx.

You can keep your teeth until you are 100 years old, with routine maintence, having the good luck to avoid facial trauma and the awareness that the teeth are only use for chewing food or mastication. 

A variety of problems or disorders can occur including broken teeth, worn teeth, loose teeth, bone loss, sensitivity, shifting teeth, discomfort, headaches, muscle pain TMJ inflammation and discomfort, fractures in restorations exostosis and abfractions. These problems put you on a progression that you may lose many of your teeth and the replacment of the teeth can be......let us annouce, avoided!

The potential causes of occusal problems include poor diet
during growth, high anxious moments during the daytime
which lead to clendhing and then bruxism which directly
 leads to increase forces on the teeth and strain in the
muscles of mastication and the accessorty musle that position
the head for eating, improperly adjusted crowns or fillings
and finally sleep breathing disorder that a 2% to 4% reduction
in blood oxygen saturation leads to night time clenching.
