Mercury-Free Dentistry

One of the key tenets of biological dentistry is the avoidance of mercury-containing dental amalgam fillings. We are a SMART certified dental office, which means our staff have been trained on the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique. Not every dental office is able to remove amalgam fillings quickly and safely, but our team would be happy to assist you and your family. When we place fillings, we opt for biocompatible materials like composite resins or ceramic fillings that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also safe for the body.

Minimally Invasive Techniques

Biological dentistry emphasizes the preservation of natural tooth structure. We strive to use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, which helps to maintain the integrity of the teeth and reduces the need for extensive procedures. Our office utilizes treatments like no-prep veneers, which allow patients to enjoy the benefits of veneers without having to remove any tooth enamel, which is a permanent procedure.

Biocompatibility Testing

Biocompatibility testing involves a thorough assessment to determine which dental materials are most compatible with an individual’s unique biology. This process ensures that any materials used in dental treatments, such as fillings, crowns, or implants, are well-tolerated by the patient’s body. By identifying potential sensitivities or allergies, we can select materials that not only promote optimal oral health but also contribute to the overall well-being of our patients. This personalized approach exemplifies our commitment to providing safe and effective dental care tailored to each individual’s specific needs and biological makeup.

Microscopic Plaque Analysis

Microscopic plaque analysis allows us to take an in-depth look at the composition of dental plaque at a microscopic level. By examining the types of bacteria present and their abundance, we can provide targeted and personalized recommendations for improving oral hygiene practices. This detailed analysis empowers our patients with a deeper understanding of their oral health and enables us to develop customized strategies for maintaining a healthy, plaque-free smile. Through this meticulous approach, we aim to prevent dental issues before they arise, ultimately promoting long-term oral health and overall well-being.

Dental Meridian Chart

A dental meridian chart is a holistic approach to understanding the interconnectedness between specific teeth and various organs or systems within the body. This concept is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and alternative healing practices. Each tooth is believed to be energetically linked to certain meridians, or energy pathways, that correspond to different organs or bodily functions. For example, a tooth issue in a particular area might be associated with an imbalance or ailment in a related organ. This holistic perspective underscores the idea that oral health is intimately connected to overall well-being.

Comprehensive Oral Health

Comprehensive oral health encompasses far more than just routine dental check-ups and cleanings. It involves a holistic approach to maintaining the health and well-being of the entire mouth, including teeth, gums, jaw, and related structures. This approach emphasizes preventive care, aiming to identify and address potential issues before they escalate into more serious problems. Moreover, comprehensive oral health extends beyond the physical aspects, recognizing the psychological and emotional impact of a healthy smile on an individual’s self-esteem and overall quality of life.
