Feng Shui and Dentistry

What has dentistry and smiles got to do with Feng Shui? Well, it is said that the mouth is where you keep all your secrets.

As I understand it, if you have gaps in your smile, the ‘chi’ can escape! Hence it would be harder for you to be profitable in your business ventures.

Today, the son of my friend, a Feng Shui consultant, was referred to me, to close the gaps in his smile. 

He had a wide generous smile

and the gaps in his front teeth     were  pretty obvious.

We talked for a bit and decided to close the gaps with just fillings and I assured him that it would be absolutely painless and completed within the hour.

Whilst I worked I told him that his mother had done a Bazi reading for me too, and that she was amazingly accurate

. 

I kept up a steady stream of patter to distract him and when I finished with the upper teeth I gave him the mirror with a ‘ta daah’. 

It’s always nice to see the results half way, I notice my patients begin to relax even more when they see for themselves that due to the colour matching, no one could tell where and what I did …. even his own mother!

         And when I was done…

he could truly say “See Ma … no more gaps!!”         :lol:

    Hi Dr. Fauziah,

    I found ur website while I’m googling for something related to dentistry.

    I just had my braces on last month and my ortho suggested that I go for a root canal treatment as one of my tooth has an infection.I did my first treatment yesterday.two more to go..

    I was wondering, can we get a crown done for that particular tooth while having braces on?Or do i have to wait until i get the braces is off. One of my front teeth looks kinda bad and I am a lil’ bit self conscious.

    I hope to get a reply from an expert like you.

    Hi Yen,
    To answer your question, yes, you can have a crown done on the tooth that is undergoing orthodontic treatment however you may want to wait until the tooth has been repositioned to the planned spot the orthodontist and you have decided on before doing so.

    The root canal treatment allows a dead tooth to remain in your jaw without giving trouble, that is being the cause of infection. That’s it! Root canal treatment does not breathe life into an already dead or dying tooth, hence as the tooth becomes more and more brittle, you will need to ’strengthen’ the root with a post in the filled canal (It’s dead already, dear, so it won’t hurt at all) and then place a crown on top of that to ’strengthen’ the part that shows in your mouth!

    It makes sense to do this once the tooth has been placed (or arrived! :) ) at the position you want it. The only possible reason you may want to do the crown and post before the orthodontic treatment is completed, is IF the tooth is so broken down, the bracket placed on it has not enough tooth structure to actually hold on.

    Hope this helps! You can mail me too at fay@drfauziah.com if you’d like or come in.

    Thanks for your query. It’s so nice to get comments. I know my blog gets many hits but most don’t comment …. It gives me such a buzz when someone does!

    Dr Fauziah
