Ceramic dental implants offer a non-metal alternative to traditional titanium alloy implants. Not only much more esthetic, these implants do not contribute to oral galvanism or corrode like metal implants, which have been shown to break down and release harmful heavy metals into the jawbone.
Research has shown ceramic implants to have less inflammation and less bacteria accumulation than their metal counterparts. In addition, ceramic implants form a tight seal with your soft tissue just like a natural tooth, preventing harmful pathogens from getting to the jawbone and creating inflammation.
Biological dentistry focuses on a principle known as ‘the oral systemic link’. The oral systemic link is actually many links that connect your oral health to your overall health. Recent research makes these findings more evident than ever. We believe patients need to be aware of this systemic link and be empowered to make decisions for themselves.
We are proud to say we are a mercury-free and mercury-safe dental practice.
We are SMART Certified, following strict protocols set by the IAOMT for safe amalgam filling removal.
We use layered bonding techniques for composite fillings to maximize outcomes.
We utilize ozone therapy with nearly every patient encounter! Ozone is tri-atomic oxygen and can be used for a variety of treatment modalities, including routine hygiene visits, dental restorations, and dental surgery.
Ozone therapy is primarily used for disinfecting tissues, up-regulating the immune system, and helping tissues to heal and regenerate.
SAFE AMALGAM REMOVAL
One of our staple procedures is safe amalgam removal. Removing amalgam without the proper precautions can be dangerous!
We go to extreme measures to keep you safe and protect ourselves when removing metals from your mouth. Utilizing the safe mercury amalgam removal technique (SMART) set forth by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), we are not only mercury free but also mercury safe!
MICROSCOPIC BACTERIAL ANALYSIS
The mouth houses the second most diverse microbial community in the body, harboring over 800 species of bacteria and various other pathogens that colonize the hard surfaces of teeth and the soft tissues of the oral mucosa. Modern lifestyles can disturb and upset the natural balance of our oral microbiome, and our clinical goal is to reestablish its symbiotic equilibrium.
