Dentist in Sebastopol, CA explains biological dentistry
At Whole Health dental, we know that oral health is connected to the health of the entire body. Our dentistry services go beyond cleaning teeth and filling cavities. A biological dentist opts for conservative, natural treatments that provide lasting results for a lifetime of health.
Our focus in our Sebastopol, CA practice is holistic therapy, which includes the safe removal of amalgam fillings that contain mercury. Instead, we use safe, biocompatible materials that do not contain heavy metals. When patients require a filling, we restore the tooth with composite resin, which is beautiful, safe, and effective. If we need to remove existing amalgam fillings, we follow the safety guidelines that were established by the IAOMT to minimize any mercury exposure for the patients and staff.
Why is biological dentistry important?
As dentists, it could be easy to get caught up in simply fixing “problems” with the teeth. Instead, our philosophy focuses on health and prevention. We are dedicated to avoiding the use of potentially dangerous or toxic materials that could have a harmful effect on the body. We take every precaution to ensure our patients are protected.
Prevention is as important as treatment
By educating our patients on the importance of regular dental care both at home and with twice-yearly visits, we find that we can reduce the need for restorative treatment. This means patients can enjoy beautiful, healthy smiles free of decay and gum disease.
Improving quality of life
Making sure our patients enjoy a healthy life is important to us. Certain conditions such as chronic headaches and sleep apnea can greatly impact quality of life. We provide the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ/TMD disorders as well as treatment for sleep apnea with mouth guards.
