I want to introduce you to a patient in our practice, his name is Jurgen and he came to our practice in 2009 for our Smile Rejuvenation services. In talking with and working with Jurgen we came to an understanding that the primary concern or risk factor that he faced was his Biomechanical risk.  That is, that he had worn down and broken down his dentition through excessive use of his teeth.  Once he became aware of his risk factors and the consequences of where his oral health was heading, he decided that his ultimate goal was not to end up losing his teeth. So we came up with a plan to rejuvenate what had been destroyed and most importantly address the cause of the breakdown so it did not return.  We did this work back in 2012 and 4 years later it is still holding up beautifully.  Click below to learn more about Jurgen’s story…

Preventative Care

preventative-care-dentistry-lansing-family

Tooth Decay

Bechtel Dentistry prioritizes preventative care for all of our patients. Our holistic & biologic dentistry creates custom preventative plans that promote overall wellness and optimize oral health.

A very common issue among patients of all ages, tooth decay is a disease which can be prevented. Though it might not be life threatening,  it can certainly result in quite negative impacts your day to day happiness.

Tooth decay is caused by prolonged or repeated exposure to acidic liquids and foods.  Soft drinks, athletic drinks, energy drinks, juices, candy, and coffee are common contributors that can degrade your tool enamel.  It is important to remember that high sugar consumption is a leading risk factor for tooth decay.  We’d like to work with you to develop a holistic and health-centered plan to fight any tooth decay issues you might see developing.

Sensitive Teeth

When you feel sharp pain while drinking or eating warm or cold drinks and beverages, you might be experiencing an issue with sensitive teeth. It is caused by the expansion or contraction resulting from rapid temperature changed. Some patients have such sensitivities that even breathing cold air can cause pain. We can create strategies and provide treatments that can help decrease your pain.

Dr. Bechtel and our Lansing, Michigan dental team are committed to providing exceptional care and empowering our patients with information about their dental health. If you have any questions about our preventative care services or would like to schedule an appointment, we invite you to contact us at 517-882-7132.

Restorative Care

restorative-care-dentistry-lansing-family

Bechtel Dentistry specializes in restorative care, offering the holistic approach for effective restorative services. Materials used to restore teeth have changed radically over the years, but typically can be classified into two categories: Direct and indirect restorations.

At some point, we all need restorative help. And when that day comes, you want to know that your dentist has the experience and expertise to truly help your needs. We believe a smile should look and feel beautiful. At Bechtel Dentistry, our highly-trained team of dental professionals provides a wide range of restorative dental care services. Whether you’re struggling with advanced decay, have a damaged or broken tooth, or have gaps in your smile that you want to fill in, we will help develop a plan for you to enjoy good oral health and well-being again.

Dr. Bechtel is proud to offer a holistic and biologic alternative to conventional crowns with biomimetic restorations. Biomimetic restorations include stress-reduced direct composite restorations and porcelain/composite inlays and onlays that restore the biomechanics of broken and damaged teeth. Traditional dental treatments including porcelain fused to metal crowns, gold crowns, and amalgam fillings are not biomimetic by any measure.

Bechtel Dentistry specializes in periodontal health, offering a full scope of preventative periodontal services and holistic treatment plans. We value the systemic connection between gum health and overall wellness, providing custom-tailored treatments for all of our Lansing patients.

Periodontal Disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. It is also the most common infectious disease in the world. Research has shown that 35% of adults with teeth between ages 35 to 90 have Periodontitis, 22% have a mild form and 13% have moderate to severe disease.

The risk of Periodontal Disease increases with age. Although many teenagers and children show symptoms of Gingivitis, they are more resistant to developing Periodontal Disease. Some children and teens may develop aggressive forms of Periodontal Disease where bone and tooth loss can occur very rapidly.

Bechtel Dentistry is proud to offer Invisalign services for all of our dental patients. Invisalign offers an effective, minimally-invasive approach for orthodontic care. These custom-fit aligners uphold our holistic wellness standards, providing an incredible treatment plan that anyone can take advantage of.

In our office we utilize Invisalign to move and align teeth. It is ideal for closing spaces between your teeth or fixing minor areas of crowding or unsightly tooth rotations or tipping.

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you.

Hear What People Say

Patient Testimonial

Dr. Bechtel has dramatically improved and enlarged the office and has hired new and terrific staff. Everyone always is on top of whatever needs attention. As a patient for years, I’ve never had a complaint with any service, recommendation, or result. I can’t say enough good things about thoroughness, use of technology, cleanliness, friendliness of the office, or the feeling I always get that these people are deeply committed to what they do and to doing it the very best it can be. Not pushy. No fear. Comfortable. Straightforward. Competent. Caring. Pleasant.
