Advances in Modern Dentistry

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne of the most critical parts of performing a dental filling is sealing off the tooth to keep bacteria out. The goal is to create a lasting restoration that won’t cause problems in the future. This is why I have advanced my education by taking courses in biomimetic dentistry.

While well-intended, traditional dentistry was strictly focused on treating the tooth structure. Recent research has highlighted the importance of taking the body in its entirety into consideration. This means checking the patents medical history as well as the tongue, neck, face and mouth for problems. It also means looking closer at the materials we use in the mouth and how we apply them.

Silver fillings can leak harmful mercury into they body. They also weaken the existing tooth to a point of discoloration and decay. The biomimetic approach employs porcelain and other safe materials that result in a healthy and natural finished product.

Dental work has a serious impact on overall health. If you would like to learn more about silver filling removal or biomimetic dentistry, please don’t hesitate to contact me today.
