Dr. Bruno Sharp of Sharp Dentistry & Associates is changing the lives of his patients every day. As a prosthodontist and 4th generation dentist, Dr. Sharp specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth, anti-aging preventive dentistry and is commonly heralded as “a plastic surgeon of dentistry.”
Prosthodontists collaborate with general dentists, orthodontists, periodontists, plastic surgeons and other health professionals to develop solutions to a patient’s dental concerns. Therefore only prosthodontists are specifically trained to design and supervise a complete dental treatment plan for optimal function and aesthetics. All in order to achieve a perfect smile and perfect teeth.
As a leading advocate of natural, preventive and anti-aging dentistry, Dr. Sharp believes in a natural, whole-body approach to oral health and wellness. In keeping with his commitment to maximize and maintain patient’s optimal oral health, Dr. Sharp has compiled the following guidelines to what he refers to as Anti-Aging Preventive Dentistry:
- Visit your dentist every 3 to 4 months
- Prophylaxis (Dental cleaning) and Good Cleaning Routine Evaluation
- Oral Cancer Screening
- Mercury-free Amalgam Removal – metal-free fillings
- Right Bite Evaluation (Night Guard – grinding due to stress, to protect teeth from wear and relax the myofascial muscles)
- Smile and Aesthetics Evaluation
- Correction of Teeth positioning (Invisalign or prosthodontic restorative work – crowns, metal-free crown, veneers, porcelain crowns, and white fillings)
- 3D CAT Scan Analysis
- Oral Health Evaluation
- One-hour Teeth Whitening in-office Procedure
Brush and floss 3 times a day after meals and regular use of Natural Oral Care Products that are alcohol and fluoride-free (mouthwash and toothpaste)
Prosthodontists – The Plastic Surgeons of Dentistry
Extended education, rigorous training and experience in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate education program provides Dr. Sharp with the special skills and understanding of the dynamics of the smile. His specialized training also includes the preservation of a healthy mouth, the art of creating tooth replacement, implants and treatment of the mandibular joint. Prosthodontics is one of the five or six specialties in dentistry and throughout Miami-Dade, there are very few who specialize in the field.
“More and more people have a desire to look and feel differently, so cosmetic surgery is a booming practice,” says Bruno Sharp, CD, DDS, MS. “Prosthodontists significantly improve a patient’s self-image and quality of life by creating a great smile where one didn’t exist before – or by making an already dazzling smile even better.”
The prosthodontists at Sharp Dentistry & Associates also help patients by restoring the full use of teeth damaged by nightly grinding, decay or nerve damage, traumatic injuries, gum disease, loss of jawbone due to disease or birth defects, aging and bone shrinkage. For these treatment needs, Dr. Sharp and his team of specialists provide the necessary complex care management and supervision, as well as continuing care.
