Dr. Cutbirth's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cutbirth "Dr. Cutbirth is a published author and international speaker on the topics of complex restorative dentistry, including implants; aesthetic dentistry including porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges, replacing missing teeth, and the diagnosis and treatment of facial pain (TMJ). Having practiced aesthetic restorative dentistry in Waco since 1981, Dr. Cutbirth sees patients from all over Texas and the US. After serving as a visiting faculty member at the Pankey Institute in Florida for twenty five years, Dr. Cutbirth founded the Center for Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry (CARD), in Dallas, Texas in 2000 and continues to serve as its Director. Originally sponsored by Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, The Center for Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry now exists as an independent institute for advanced dental continuing education teaching practicing dentists advanced techniques in dentistry. Prior to his training in complex restorative dentistry, aesthetic restorative dentistry and the diagnosis and treatment of facial pain (TMJ), Dr. Cutbirth completed a two year oral surgery fellowship at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. During that fellowship, Dr. Cutbirth attained extensive skill in oral surgery and became certified in intravenous (IV) sedation. Dr. Cutbirth practices general dentistry and can treat most dental conditions. Taking care of patients with a comprehensive approach to their dental situation, and "like they're a member of our own family," captures the essence of Dr. Cutbirth's dental practice. This comprehensive approach to a patient's dental health does not necessarily mean restoring all of a patient's teeth. Treating a dental patient comprehensively simply means that the patient and dentist understand the patient's overall dental condition so that the best informed decisions can be made regarding maintaining the patient's dental health. Our dental office is not a high volume "tooth ache" practice. If you have a tooth ache, we will absolutely get you out of pain, but Dr. Cutbirth will not complete any definitive dental treatment until we have thoroughly examined your overall dental condition. The concept of "Comprehensive Dentistry" is similar to that of remodeling a house. Prior to fixing the kitchen, the remodeler would like to know if the foundation of the house is sound, if the house has termites, if the owner's plan is to one day knock out some walls, or to modify the wallpaper/paint scheme – in other words, what is the overall condition of the house and what is the overall plan for restoration? In dentistry, much like home remodeling, everything is connected. Prior to any definitive dental restoration, the patient and dentist should know if the patient has any of the following presenting conditions: 1) periodontal disease, 2) decay, 3) large, unstable, leaky fillings, or 4) TMJ/bite problems. Additionally, 6) does the patient wish to change the color of their teeth, 7) are there other teeth with problems the patient wishes to restore at the same time? This question becomes especially relevant if the patient chooses to be sedated. With sedation dentistry, extensive dental work can be accomplished in one or two visits. The cost of the "Comprehensive Examination and Consultation" is, and has been, $189 since 1981. Dr. Cutbirth feels so strongly about the absolute need for the comprehensive exam prior to definitive treatment that our office has never increased the price! No matter what you decide to do, knowledge is important. We see many patients who need no dental treatment, but simply desire a thorough dental assessment, cleaning and oral hygiene/prevention instruction. We have all ages of children and adults in our hygiene cleaning/recall system."
