Bio-Friendly Dentistry

Bio-friendly dentistry is based on the premise that all dental materials, medications and techniques used should be safe and not compromise patients overall well-being. Patients are viewed as a whole with the understanding that dental health issues can affect over-all health and vice versa. As a result of this belief, we consider the state of the entire person when determining the best course of treatment. Our doctors and staff know that not all dental materials are created equally, and not all people will react to those materials in the same manner. By taking a biological approach we are better able to determine which materials offer the maximum safety, longevity and predictability for each individual.

Mercury Free Dentistry
Due to the growing research that shows the mercury content in amalgam fillings could have a negative affect on a person’s over-all health, we have chosen to be a mercury free dental practice. We only use biocompatible materials, and offer the safe removal of existing amalgam fillings.

Fluoride Free Dentistry
“Keep out of reach of children. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.”

Ever wonder why this warning is placed on toothpastes containing fluoride?
Studies show that like mercury, fluoride can be detrimental to a person’s over-all health.

There is increased risk of hip fracture, birth defects, cancer, arthritis, thyroid dysfunction, and the lowering of a person’s IQ. Even if fluoride does reduce tooth decay, is it worth the risks?

Because of the possible health risks of fluoride we chose not to use it in our practice. We have found that a good oral health regimen and proper nutrition does an excellent job of preventing decay without harming the body.

Starting with our youngest patients to our adult patients, we can guide you on a path to optimum oral health without the use of possible toxins.

Nutrition
We all know that what we eat affects our over-all health, so doesn’t it make sense that what we eat also affects our oral health? Like our bones, muscles and organs, our teeth and gums need certain nutrients to be healthy and stay healthy.

Dairy products provide calcium and vitamin D for strengthening teeth and bones. Breads and cereals supply B vitamins for growth and iron for healthy blood, which in turn contributes to healthy gum tissue. Fruits and vegetables containing vitamin C, among other important vitamins, are essential to maintaining healthy gums.

Lean meat, fish, poultry and beans provide iron and protein to improve overall health, and magnesium and zinc for teeth and bones.

We offer a variety of nutritional supplements at our office and can suggest which ones may provide the most benefit according to your individual needs.
