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!

Biological dentistry: a different approach to dental care

Most dentists focus on providing treatment options that fix one problem at a time, such as filling a cavity with metal amalgam or treating a diseased tooth with a root canal and sending you on your way. While this approach can be effective at treating the immediate issue at hand, it fails to take into account the interconnected nature of the human body. Treatments and materials used in the mouth can have a direct effect on other organ systems and your overall health. A great example of this is the link that has been established between gum disease and other health problems such as strokes, diabetes, and pre-term labor. Due to this mouth-body connection, we believe it is imperative to use only the safest treatment methods and biocompatible materials that will work in harmony with your body.

What you can expect with holistic dentistry

The backbone of our dental practice is the prevention of oral health problems through routine hygiene visits and preventive treatments designed to keep you disease-free, such as the use of ozone therapy to promote a healthy oral environment. When treatment is needed to restore health to your teeth or gums, or if you are simply interested in improving the aesthetics of your smile with cosmetic dental care, you can rely on our team to use biocompatible materials and techniques that are designed to keep you comfortable and pain-free while optimizing your treatment outcomes. This may include:

  • Metal-free dental restorations
  • Using ozone therapy
  • Taking advantage of the latest technologies such as laser therapy
  • Determining the root cause of issues such as TMJ disorder rather than simply masking the symptoms
  • A focus on patient education, so you feel empowered in the care of your teeth and gums

To experience our holistic approach to dental care for yourself, call us today at (336) 606-0040. We always welcome new patients to our dental family!
