What is BioRejuvenation Dentistry?
BioRejuvenation Dentistry is actually based on principles from 1990 but the newer minimally invasive approach is a more recent development. BioRejuvenation Dentistry actually targets root problems by diagnosing and defining a failing chewing system. In traditional dentistry, dentists often only treat the symptoms of a failing chewing system with mechanical solutions, ie crowns, onlay, etc. Cosmetic dentistry is usually the only provided option, as dentists try to continually fix the symptoms alone. Once a tooth is crowned or treated with an onlay, it is committed to this type of restoration for life. The symptoms of a failing chewing system can include:
- Poor TMJ health– unstable jaw joints
- Tense facial muscles
- Worn down teeth
- Poor dental aesthetics
- Poor chewing functionality
- Deterioration of natural teeth
- Poor overall dental health
These symptoms can drastically escalate creating further symptoms of discomfort:
- Neck and facial muscle pain
- Ear pain
- Tooth pain
- Gum recession
- Jaw bone loss
- Fractured teeth
- Constant awareness of bite/teeth
BioRejuvenation Dentistry focuses on the in-depth process of how to improve TMJ health by ensuring the muscles are relaxed while improving our patients’ jaw stability. This prevents the deterioration of teeth, improving overall dental health, functionality, aesthetics, and long-term dental needs.
BioRejuvenation versus Traditional Dentistry
When patients experience these symptoms and are treated in traditional dental practices, often times they’re offered significantly expensive, invasive procedures. Traditional full-mouth rehabilitation can be both troublesome and strenuous, condemning them to extracting their natural teeth and committing them to a lifetime use of crowns and overlays.
BioRejuvenation Dentistry offers a minimally invasive approach that can actually preserve patient’s enamel and restore their chewing system, alleviating all the painful symptoms simultaneously. This teeth restoration process utilizes more conservative methods like direct composite resin bonding, giving patients’ a beautiful smile with a realigned, successful chewing system. BioRejuvenation Dentistry offers a cost-effective solution to our patients and allows them to preserve their natural teeth.
BioRejuvenation Dentistry actually restores our patient’s damaged, natural teeth to their original form while optimizing mouth function. Patients that undergo this approach feel significantly better while limiting their need for restorative dental work, saving them considerable dental costs. Preservation of the natural tooth structure is vital to us, that’s why we are so passionate about BioRejuvenation Dentistry.
BioRejuvenation Dentistry Education
Dr. Robin Steely is Battle Creek’s trusted dentist in BioRejuvenation Dentistry. He studied and completed training at The Stewart Center for Minimally Invasive Medicine (formerly the Texas Center for Occlusal Studies and Minimal Invasive Dentistry) in order to really understand and implement the philosophy behind BioRejuvenation Dentistry. At The Stewart Center for Minimally Invasive Medicine, Dr. Robin Steely learned proper restoration of the stomatognathic system as well as the characteristics of a healthy functioning condyle/disk complex. Dr. Robin Steely also studied the principles of Dr. Bob Lee and Orognathic Bioesthetics. These two rigorous curriculums dovetail to provide the most comprehensive, technical training that allows our patients to completely stabilize their chewing system.

The BioRejuvenation Dentistry Process
BioRejuvenation Dentistry begins with conscientious comparative studies of your jaw positioning and teeth in order to create a specialized, custom treatment plan designed specifically for you. Dr. Robin Steely accomplishes this by employing digital x-rays of your chewing system, TMJ muscles, as well as teeth positioning. We also take photographs and create 3D models of your teeth mounted in a jaw-simulator in order to replicate your chewing and jaw movements. This allows us to define all failing aspects of your chewing system and how we need to move forward to restore your damaged teeth and jaw structure.
Moving forward, we must replicate three characteristics pertinent to all ideal, successful chewing systems and smiles in order to create lasting comfort, health, and optimized aesthetics. These three characteristics include:
- TMJ Health: TMJ health is top priority in BioRejuvenation Dentistry. Unfortunately TMJ health is usually overlooked in traditional dentistry, but we understand the importance of having a stable jaw joint position. Poor TMJ health leads to disastrous dental health and potential teeth deterioration.
- Proper Bite Form: A correct upper-to-lower teeth relationship is vital in order to prevent clenching, grinding, and teeth deterioration. When proper bite form is accomplished, your facial and jaw muscles can finally relax, resulting in a more youthful, softened look. Facial transformation is probably the first noticeable thing our patients and their families see after BioRejuvenation Dentistry is completed.
- Proper Tooth Form: The correct teeth shape provides you with optimal chewing comfort and efficiency. This also provides beautiful aesthetics and gives you confidence whenever you smile.
Once all three characteristics are replicated to give you a successful chewing system, you’ll immediately benefit from a highly functioning, comfortable bite along with a beautiful smile!
