Dr. George’s San Diego/La Jolla office is more then just dentistry. It’s about looking better and feeling great. I developed a unique dental system that helps you lose weight safely and easily. I have been using it for many years with proven success. The technique involves placing a fixed appliance on the back teeth where it is not visible. It is tooth colored so no one will know it is on your teeth.
Attaching the fixed appliance is painless and easy. There is no drilling involved and it is completely reversible. I start by making sure the tooth is free from decay or any other dental problems. I then clean the top surface of the tooth, place a bonding agent, and then build up the tooth colored material to make your custom appliance. Once it is in place, I smooth all the edges and make sure it is sealed onto the tooth. This is done on two teeth in your mouth, one in the back on each side. Once they are both in place I make sure you are biting evenly on each one to ensure you are comfortable while wearing them.
How does it work?
We have all heard that if you eat slower and eat less you will lose weight. It’s just not that easy to do without a little help. By having a biting surface on only two areas in your mouth you are forced to eat slower. This helps you to feel full before you finish eating the portion that you normally would have. It also makes eating slightly more challenging making it less desirable. A lot of us eat because we find it very enjoyable. If it’s made a little harder it will encourage you to eat less.
Once you feel as though you no longer need the fixed appliance it can be quickly and easily removed polishing it off. You natural tooth will not be affected by the placement of the materials on it. The tooth will feel just as it did before you had the appliance placed.
