Dentist Dr. Maze has built her dental practice on the belief that a proactive approach – in mouth, mind and body – is key to good health. Because everything in the body is linked, the mouth-body connection is acute. Blue Heron Dentistry offers screenings, education, and products regarding nutrition and exercise to help obtain and maintain total body wellness.
Research shows that those with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease.
Blue Heron Dentistry takes its role as a dental provider very seriously, because your overall good health depends on it. Botox for Bruxism, Beauty, and Gummy Smiles. Blue Heron Dentistry is thrilled to bring Botox to patients seeking relief from teeth clenching and grinding (bruxism) and migraines and ear aches, which may or may not be a result of bruxism. While we provide night-time appliances for the relief of TMJ disorder, we know people don’t always use them consistently. While these approaches are not a cure for TMJ disorder, Botox helps relax the muscles so they can not clench so tightly, and it can last up to six months. In addition to helping patients have beautiful smiles, Blue Heron Dentistry can help soften expression lines in the face, as well as relax the muscles that produce a “gummy smile”. At Blue Heron Dentistry, our goal to promote whole health and wellness is expressed by offering patients information about nutrition, exercise and weight management. Everything in the body is linked. The health of the mouth affects the body systemically as the health of the body affects the mouth. Periodontal disease is linked to cardiovascular disease, cancers, stillbirths and more. High cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity can lead to cardiovascular disease, Type II Diabetes, stroke, and osteoarthritis. Oral bacteria can affect the heart when entered into the blood stream, attaching to fatty plaques in the coronary arteries and contributing to clot formation. Blood clots can obstruct normal blood flow, restricting the amount of nutrients and oxygen required for the heart to function properly which can lead to heart attacks. At Blue Heron Dentistry, state-of-the-art diagnostic tools enable us to develop the most personalized program to measure, evaluate and monitor patients’ periodontal and systemic health care. Salivary testing is invaluable in identifying early signs of oral pathogens, as well as individual markers for other diseases and oral cancer. Dr. Maze takes pride in the care of her patients. She truly treats her patients like family. She has a true passion for health and shares her knowledge and expertise with all patients.
