“Flossophy” of Care
My goal: I want you to eat an apple when you are 100 years old.
“People today can expect to live longer today than ever before. What does that mean to me as a dentist? The ability to eat well into your advanced age will most likely have one of the largest impacts on your quality of life. As we age, our teeth do too! And as our dental & medical problems get more complex as we age, invasive procedures to restore function of eating become more difficult to manage for both the patient and the doctor.
What does that mean for us today? Let’s look at your overall health (consult your physicians if we have to) and your current oral health and work together to customize maintainable dental treatment so you benefit from a lifetime of oral health.” – Nabeel Cajee, DDS, FICOI, FAAIP
