For a child, dental success could be defined as a childhood free of cavities, learning daily dental hygiene practices, and gaining an understanding youngster who is hesitant to smile because of misaligned teeth, dental success could be measured by a successful course of orthodontic treatment resulting in a beautiful smile that restores confidence and boosts self-esteem.
For a middle-aged Shelby Township man who neglected his teeth in his youth, dental success could be defined as restorative dentistry that stabilizes his dental condition and improves his oral health.
For a woman with tetracycline stains but otherwise healthy teeth, dental success may be as easy as fast in-office same-day tooth whitening.
