Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Mercury toxicity concerns drive the biological dentistry approach to care in NC

The cornerstone of biological dentistry is biocompatibility. The traditional model of dentistry has concerned itself more with the repair and the longevity of dental materials, rather than their biocompatibility. This term relates to the way materials used in dentistry interact with oral tissues; they should not contain substances that produce adverse side effects.

Biological Dentistry in Mercury NC Area

Biological dentists such as Dr. William Virtue believe the potential toxicity of materials used in common dental procedures should not be taken lightly.

The issue of biocompatibility arises most often as it relates to silver fillings. Millions of patients’ mouths contain these common fillings. Some patients have sensitivities to the metals used to make conventional fillings.

Virtue Dental Care places biocompatible, attractive, and durable porcelain fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns.

As a biological dentist, Dr. Virtue is also a conservative dentist. Generally, a filling is preferred to an inlay or onlay and an inlay or onlay is preferred to a crown. The idea is to offer minimally invasive procedures tailored to each patient. These types of procedures preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible for the best outcome – the most natural appearance, function, and feel.

Of course, wherever possible Virtue Dental Care wants to avoid the need for restorative procedures with good preventive care, such as consistent professional exams and cleanings, guidance on effective at-home care, and safe products as recommended by Dr. Virtue. In turn, biological dentistry is about more than placing safe, non-metal dental materials for Yadkinville, NC area patients. It is also about broader techniques that acknowledge the relationship between oral health and the health of the rest of the body. It is no coincidence that patients with gum disease, for instance, have problems managing their diabetes or are more prone to respiratory infections.

To find out more about how biological dentistry can improve your quality of life, schedule an appointment with Dr. Virtue. Virtue Dental Care patients, call (336) 679-2034 and, new patients, call (336) 606-0040.
