Biocompatible dentistry uses safe, non-toxic materials for fillings, crowns, dental implants, and other tooth restorations.
For a material to be “biocompatible” it 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 which is why we prioritize only the safest dental components.
Our biological dentists can explain your treatment options so you can make the best decision for your overall well-being.
We offer composite resin fillings to our patients as an alternative to . Not only does composite resin match the color of natural tooth enamel, but it doesn’t contain mercury or any type of metal whatsoever.
Mercury is a heavy metal that has been known to cause unwanted side effects in patients. Our dentists offer white fillings to patients so that you can maintain total body health.
Benefits of composite resin fillings include:
- Do not contract or expand with temperature unlike metal amalgam fillings
- Strong and durable enough for front or back teeth
- Minimal removal of healthy tooth structure when placed
- Risk of further cavities due to possible movement of fillings is reduced
- Blend in naturally with teeth
Titanium Dental Implants
Did you recently lose a tooth? If so, our biological dentists 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. A crown is put on top of the implant to complete the restoration.
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 embedded in your jawbone to provide permanent stability while you eat, talk, and smile.
