Biocompatible dentistry uses safe non-toxic materials for fillings, crowns, dental implants, and other tooth restorations.
For a material to be “biocompatible” is must be able to coexist with the human body without causing harm. We understand that patients are concerned about the materials that go in their mouths. Our biological dentist can help you understand your treatment options so you can make the best decision for your overall well-being.
We offer composite fillings to our patients as an alternative to amalgam fillings. Not only does composite resin match the color of natural tooth enamel, but it doesn’t contain mercury. Mercury is a heavy metal that has been known to cause unwanted side effects in patients. Our biological dentist offers white fillings to patients so you can maintain total body health.
Titanium Dental Implants
Did you recently lose a tooth? If so, our biological dentist may recommend titanium dental implants. A dental implant is a titanium rod we surgically place in your jawbone that acts much like a natural tooth root would to later support a crown.
Since titanium is a biocompatible material, it fuses to your jawbone over the course of several months in a process called osseointegration. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are fused to your jawbone to provide permanent stability to your crown while you eat, talk, and smile.
