What Is Biological Dentistry?
Biological dentistry, commonly referred to as holistic dentistry, focuses on treating the underlying symptoms causing your oral health issue. Biological dentistry treatments are provided based on your overall health, since dental procedures can directly impact the rest of your body.
We incorporate biological dentistry into your care by using the latest technology, conservative techniques, and biocompatible materials.
We recognize the effects that dental treatments can have and are committed to providing oral health care that benefits your overall well-being. Our team has incorporated this system into every aspect of our care by using biocompatible materials, conservative techniques, and the latest technology.
Dentistry Benefiting Your Overall Health
Ideally, we strive to prevent conditions that may threaten your oral health. However, that is not always possible. In these cases, we offer the best possible solutions to help your body recover from dental health issues using efficient and effective methods.
By offering a broad spectrum of dental procedures ranging from periodontal care and orthodontics to dental implant placement, we are able to accommodate your oral health needs and provide you with several treatment options. Our skilled doctors can perform swift and personalized treatment conveniently in one office. Receiving your dental care from our doctors also ensures that every aspect of your care is held to our high standards.
We choose to use materials that are safe for our patients including BPA-free clear aligners and dental porcelain, among others. This is important to us since some materials can cause allergic reactions and may even be toxic. When planning your treatment, we can evaluate your product sensitivity through blood tests to help ensure we do not provide something that is harmful to you.
Another important aspect of biocompatible dentistry is the use of conservative and holistic techniques. Our goal is to minimize damage and preserve the natural hard and soft tissues when possible. Instead of traditional or more invasive procedures, our doctors employ conservative techniques such as the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique for gum recession. We also offer acupuncture as an alternative to sedation to help patients relieve anxiety and relax during treatment.
Our practice uses state-of-the-art technology to improve comfort, treatment outcomes, and recovery. We commonly incorporate laser dentistry, rotary pieces, and other tools when possible, including digital x-rays which significantly reduce radiation exposure. Ozone therapy is also used by our doctors to help expedite the healing process by improving your body's intake and use of oxygen.
