Biological dentistry, also known as holistic or integrative dentistry, focuses on promoting overall health and wellness by considering the connections between the mouth and the rest of the body. This approach aims to use materials and techniques that are less harmful to both the patient and the environment. Some potential benefits of biological dentistry include:

  • Using non-toxic materials: Biological dentists use alternative materials for fillings, such as composite resins, that do not contain harmful chemicals like mercury and BPA (Bisphenol-A). They also use safe ways to remove mercury fillings and help you detoxify.

  • Using biocompatible, metal free materials for dental restorations like crowns, veneers, fillings, and dental implants.

  • Minimizing radiation exposure: Biological dentists use digital x-rays that emit less radiation than traditional film x-rays.

  • Avoiding unnecessary procedures: Biological dentists prioritize preventative care and avoid unnecessary procedures that could harm a patient's overall health. They strive to preserve the natural vital tooth for as long as possible.

  • All treatment plans are personalized based on the patient's individual needs, wishes, and budget.

  • Addressing underlying health issues: Biological dentists work with other (integrative) healthcare professionals to address underlying health issues that could be affecting a patient's oral health. By taking a more holistic approach to dental care, biological dentistry can promote both individual and environmental health.
