Dr. Mariana Conant is an established dental professional and focuses on evidence-based esthetic dentistry. Aside from knowledge in general dentistry, her expertise in bite alignment makes her an ideal contributor for Smile! Creating Healthy and Beautiful Smiles with Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Conant’s contribution will feature examples of her knowledge and background in the field of TMJ disorder (also known as temporomandibular disorder or TMD) and the effect it can have on a poorly aligned bite.
“TMD can lead to serious pain and discomfort. Difficulty chewing, clicking of the jaw, as well as jaw-locking, are all symptoms of TMD and a consultation with your dentist may be extremely beneficial” says Dr. Mariana Conant.
Smile! Creating Healthy and Beautiful Smiles with Cosmetic Dentistry is currently scheduled for release in mid-2020. The book provides patients with a simple and understandable explanation of all aspects of dental treatment, including state-of-the-art processes and developing technology. The book will cover treatments like veneers, dental implants, orthodontics, crowns, and more.
According to Blue Ocean Publishing Group’s purchasing agent, Anna Foster, the purpose of the book is to assist patients in finding the right information to help them make responsible and informed decisions about restorative and cosmetic dental work. The book features contributions from experts in all areas of dental practice from around the country. These dentists have been chosen for their expertise in their respective fields.
Dr. Conant’s vast experience and her work with bite alignment, has given her particular insight into what can happen when dental health is not maintained properly and routinely. Her chapter will help patients understand TMJ disorders and how to prevent the worsening of TMD symptoms.
