Hi I am Dr. Griffin Cole, president of the International Academy of Oral medicine and toxicology. The most highly regarded biological dental organization in the world. It is my pleasure to
introduce to you Dr. Bill Virtue of Yadkinville, Carolina – who has been practicing biological dentistry for over 15 years. The academy is very proud to announce that Dr. Virtue has successfully completed all the requirements and shows proficiency in all phases of biological dentistry and therefore has been awarded his accreditation and fellowship with the Academy. Congratulations Dr. Virtue – thank you.
Understanding biological dentistry, general dentistry by caring hands. At Virtue dental care we believe patients should have access to general dentistry solutions that focus on biocompatibility. Dr. Virtue and his team work closely with individuals who ensure everything done in the mouth is appropriate for the body as a whole. Biological dentistry is a field of dental care that specializes in providing care beyond the smile. Thanks to continued advances in technology and a better understanding of oral health and wellness dental teams can employ bio compatible dentistry techniques in their dental practices, easier than ever before. Not only do procedures ensure a natural look for the smile but they protect the body from other concerns. A perfect example of this is preventative care for periodontal disease and cavities. Periodontal disease can be carried through the body; this is because the bacteria causing the infection flows through the blood stream and can affect other organs, including the heart. Patients with periodontal disease may find themselves at a higher risk for a variety of conditions including strokes, heart disease and diabetes. By ensuring the smile is infection free patients can improve their overall health too. Dr. Virtue has extensive training which allows him to be branded as a biocompatible dentist in the area of Yadkinville North Carolina. His team of professionals are dedicated to helping with the removal and replacement of mercury filings. Our practice safely removes these old fillings and provides new filings using a material called composite resin, which is safer and more aesthetic.

Maintaining a healthy mouth:
The maintenance of clean teeth and gums revolves round brushing and flossing. Place the tooth brush bristles next to the gum line on the outer surfaces to the teeth. Brush gently using a back and forth technique with the tooth brush. For the inner surface of the teeth, place the bristles next to the gum line and brushing a circular motion. The inside of the mouth is where the most plaque accumulates brush the surface of the teeth where the most chewing of food takes place, in the same circular motion, to clean those places between the teeth where a tooth brush can’t reach floss once a day to remove food and plaque to avoid gum disease. So eat a well-balanced diet, brush twice daily and schedule regular checkups with the dentist.
At a young age, our teeth are healthy and white but over time the enamel slowly coating the tooth is worn down causing our teeth to become stained and yellow which is why teeth whitening is becoming increasingly popular today. There are a few methods for whitening – they include at home and in office. With in-office treatments you will see faster results and you will receive the safest treatments for bleaching the teeth and yield the whitest smile. So don’t settle for teeth that have become stained from years of coffee drinking, tobacco use or just ageing. Ask your dentist about whitening options that maybe right for you.
Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
