What is BioRejuvenation Dentistry?

BioRejuvenation Dentistry is the most thorough and wellness-centered dentistry that exists.  It is a philosophy, a science, a technique, and an art.

BioRejuvenation Dentistry is based upon five primary principles:

  • Principle 1: The mouth is a window to the health of the entire body and many systemic diseases can be diagnosed and even prevented through care of the mouth.
  • Principle 2: The airway is the most important part of the oral system. If the body is being deprived of oxygen especially during sleep, then dreadful things happen to the body. The upper part of the airway (above the lungs) is right in the bio rejuvenation dentists’ wheel house. Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OAS), and soring have many serious systemic consequences. Most bite and TMJ disorders are related to airway issues.  So, bio rejuvenation dentistry, in conjunction with a sleep/airway neurologist, addresses and treats, these prevalent airway issues.
  • Principle 3: The jaw joint, or TMJ, is of optimal importance when considering treatment of teeth, especially the bite. A stable TMJ is the key to a stable bite and teeth that do not wear down or chip or become hypersensitive. Teeth wear, hypersensitive teeth, chipped teeth, clenching/grinding, gum recession, bleeding gums, headaches, ear problems, tinnitus, are common signs and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction.
  • Principle 4: A stable healthy mouth with a comfortable bite will always have a stable TMJ (principle 3) but it also has teeth that are formed (or restored) to natural biologic anatomy, or shape. Teeth that are shaped naturally perform the best. Bio rejuvenation looks at healthy unworn natural teeth and copies this into any and every restoration placed in the mouth.
  • Principle 5: The way the upper and lower teeth fit together in conjunction with proper tooth anatomy and a stable TMJ is a primary key to a health, stable, optimal functioning chewing system.

Why I Became A BioRejuvenation Dentist, By Dr. Hal Stewart

When one’s profession is in align with their passion and purpose they never really go to work. They are fulfilling their purpose in life every single day. Helping people feel better, look better and live a fuller, healthier life is my passion and my purpose. Being a BioRejuvenation Dentist allows me this wonderful opportunity.

BioRejuvenation Dentistry is so much more than teeth. The teeth are just part of an incredible complex system (the stomatognathic system) that has a significant effect on the whole body. My BioRejuvenation dental practice is centered around whole health and wellness for my patients. Of course, general dental procedures are a daily part of what I do because the teeth are part of the system. But we do so much more.

What sets a BioRejuvenation practice, like mine, apart is that I look deeper into the system to find out “WHY.” We don’t just look at teeth and treat the “WHAT.”  Millions of people suffer from TMJ pain, headaches, facial pain, sleep apnea, snoring, gum disease, poor nutrition, etc.  So many apparent teeth problems stem from other more systemic issues and as a doctor who practices and teaches BioRejuvenation Dentistry I can diagnose and treat (or refer) to address all these issues.

Therefore, I became a BioRejuvenation Dentist and as a result I love what I do every day because my passion and my purpose are being fulfilled with each patient that I touch.

This was a very special case for me because Sheri is my amazing hygienist! Before treatment, Sheri suffered from tooth wear, facial muscle tension, headaches, and TMJ pain. This caused decreased energy, discomfort, and poor sleep. I first stabilized her TMJ using the Condylar Centering Orthotic physical therapy, then a short period of Invisalign, and then restored the proper shape to the worn teeth with non-invasive composite resin. I did not have a to grind down one tooth! Now Sheri has a beautiful smile, but more importantly, her bite is comfortable and she no longer has headaches, muscle pain, or TMJ.

Stacy suffered from frequent headaches, joint pain and popping, and hypersensitive teeth. “My teeth hurt, and I am self-conscious,” said Stacy, “they are very thin nad chipping. I don’t want to lose them, and I want to have a nice smile.” I placed Stacy in a C20 (Condylar Centering Orthotic) for 6 weeks followed by minimally invasive BioRejuvenation Dentistry. “Now my teeth don’t hurt at all, and I love to smile,” says Stacy, “Smiling is my favorite!”
