More about Dr. Byron Y Lew
Byron Lew, D.D.S. Education: New York University College of Dentistry, D.D.S. Saint John’s University, B.S. Biology Professional Memberships: Ø Academy of General Dentistry Ø American Academy of Cranio Facial Pain Ø International Association of Orthodontics Ø Dental Organization for Sleep Apnea Ø International TMJ and Sleep Medicine Network My treatment philosophy is that of seeing the person as a whole. Many times treatments focus on appearance and esthetics alone. Making things look better but never once taking into account functional or health problems. Many times headaches and migraines can simply be caused by nighttime grinding and or teeth clenching. Why just prescribe migraine medication? Why not just treat the cause? These same headaches and migraines can also be caused by nutritional and or chronic infections or allergies. There are a multitude of possibilities. I also believe children should be evaluated as early as 6 years old for orthodontic intervention. If a child has mismatched upper and lower jaw sizes, why wait until they are teens to start straightening teeth? ADD and nighttime bedwetting can be a result of poor orthodontic conditions, which cause poor airway conditions. Again why leave an obvious jaw size discrepancy and just straighten teeth? Treat the cause. Functional orthodontics involves the use of appliances to match jaw sizes while a child is still growing. Furthermore, the use of functional orthodontics in adults usually involves treatment of headaches of TMJ. These untreated children tend to become adults with sleep disorders. Whether it is poor sleep quality or medically diagnosed sleep apnea, these adults continue on their journey of preventable health issues such as headaches, migraines, TMJ, hypertension, and chronic fatigue. My diagnosis considers the person as a whole for life. This is a far-reaching goal, which can only be accomplished in conjunction with other heath care practitioners. We work with many physicians and therapists to help you obtain your best. Health care is life long journey of knowledge for both the patient and practitioner.
