Dentistry 101
Everyone has heard of and recognizes the four food groups and the importance of a well-balanced diet. The Kois Center uses this concept to distinguish the four areas of the mouth that must be evaluated to develop a risk assessment, make a diagnosis and provide treatment recommendations for our patients. The four dental risk groups are Periodontal, Biomechanical, Functional and Dentofacial categories.
